Overview

1945. The day before Hitler commits suicide, he arranges for Nazi leader Martin Bormann to flee to South America in a German U-boat.
1992. Terrorist Sean Dillon is saved from a Yugoslavian firing squad – if he agrees to help the British government retrieve the long-lost documents of Martin Bormann. The wreck of Bormann’s U-boat has been discovered in the Caribbean, along with a secret list of Nazi sympathizers. The names include high-level citizens from the U.S. and Great Britain – and may implicate the Duke of Windsor himself. The evidence lies in a watertight briefcase on the bottom of the sea. And the desperate search to find it will send shockwaves across the world…

“Gripping…believable…fast-paced.” – The Washington Post Book World

“A breakneck yarn!” – Kirkus Reviews

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

I think this is better then the first since it focus on the exceptional character named Sean Dillion

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.

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.

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.

The she kit stumbles in. She had messy fur and dull blue eyes. She had a dull gray pelt and she had no memory of her mother. She was only a quarter moon old and was hungry for milk.
