Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this thrilling tale that combines World War II espionage with contemporary politics, Higgins proposes that Nazi lieutenant Martin Bormann escaped Allied forces in 1945 and made his way in a U-boat to South America, along with a notebook listing U.S. and British Nazi sympathizers. One of the names in the notebook happens to be the Duke of Windsor. In 1992, a diver in the Caribbean finds the wreck of the vessel, and word gets back to the British authorities that the notebook is still onboard. Irish terrorist Sean Dillon is recruited to retrieve the item, but he's not the only one interested: a notorious drug dealer with Parliamentary connections is also in on the hunt. The involving story unfolds rapidly across two continents as the rivals race to secure the momentous prize. Helped immeasurably by Dillon's fascinating character and a stylish performance by Roger Moore, the tension builds to an enthralling climax. Highly recommended.-- Jay Rozgonyi, Fairfield Univ. Lib., Ct.\
School Library Journal
YA-When Henry Baker leaves his home on St. John to deep-sea dive in the beautiful waters of the Caribbean, he has no idea that this is not going to be a routine day. Pushed by a sense of adventure and an extremely calm sea, he goes to an area usually too dangerous for diving. In the waters of Thunder Point, Henry discovers a German U-boat, the captain's diary, and a watertight briefcase that belonged to Martin Bormann. Forty-seven years after the fall of Nazi Germany, the discovery of documents detailing the politican's escape rocks the British Parliment. This damaging information cannot be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. Unlikely alliances are formed and the race to retrieve the briefcase is underway. Thunder Point is an action-packed, easy read. The intrique of the plot and excitement of the chase will appeal to YAs.-Grace Baun, R.E. Lee High School, Springfield, VA\
John Mort
An unlikely tale from the author of "Eye of the Storm" , again featuring the IRA terrorist Sean Dillon. This time's he's more or less dragooned into the service of the British government, which reluctantly employs him as the best operative there is to find a sunken German U-boat in which Martin Bormann, a day before Hitler's suicide, supposedly made his escape. He was carrying two briefcases full of documents incriminating numerous British officials for their Nazi ties. In Higgins' view, all of this would be of monumental importance, at the least the kind of stuff that topples governments. But so much has been written about what went on in Hitler's bunker, and it was all so long ago, that fictional speculations about whether the Duke of Windsor was or wasn't a Nazi collaborator don't amount to much. The action is fast, however, making Dillon a reasonably good stand-in for James Bond--except for the sex, which is so safe it's absent. The underwater and aerial scenes are effective, though, and the bad guys are convincing. A Book of the Month Club selection.

    One of the best adventure novels of our time

    Thunder Point was one of the best books that Higgins ever wrote, after I started it I couldn't put it down for two hours. Dillion makes for a terrific anti-hero.

    Review of "Thunder Point"

    Entertaining book that introduces the readers to Sean Dillion. It is a typical Jack Higgins novel. The book moves quickly and reaches a satisfying end.

    THUNDER POINT

    This was a very interesting exciting book. If Sean Dillon is so good at getting out of tricky situations why didn't he get himself out of prison? Apart from that little illogical bit, it was one of the few books I've ever read that I couldn't put down.
