Overview

A journalist tracks escaped Nazi Martin Bormann in this WWII thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Eagle Has Landed and Rain on the Dead.

In 1945, as the Allies closed in on war-ravaged Berlin, Hitler’s personal secretary, Martin Bormann, made his escape. Since that fateful day, Bormann’s story has been shrouded in mystery.

Thirty-one years later, a journalist has begun to finally piece together Bormann’s cunning getaway. His electrifying investigation exposes the unwitting role of five Allied POWs in Bormann’s escape plot as the Nazi regime crumbled. Now, with help from a surviving POW, this journalist follows history’s twists and turns to a final, shocking conclusion.

Jack Higgins may write paperback thrillers that seem out of place if they're displayed anyplace other than in an airport gift shop, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's deserving of the position.What makes this shoot-em-up different from other fanciful yarns spun out to be untold tales of World War II is the characters. The story itself is a little formulaic and forgettable, but no worse than anything Dan Brown might come up with. And while Higgins' protagonists are trading card clones of gung-ho soldiers, wilting damsels, and golden-hearted peasants, his villains, strangely, are the ones with the most depth. This is saying something, seeing as the bad guys are Nazis. For the most part they don't spew Party rhetoric or act like assholes, but instead harbor feasible fears and doubts.Unfortunately, the book may be a little too easy to read.

A good old-fashioned war story; a fast-moving and exciting adventure set in the last days of World war II, with a twist in the tail.

Although it's not one of Higgins' best, it is more entertaining than most of the junk being offered today. by aj west

Good WWII suspense novel. Fiction but it includes some actual events and facts. A few dead sections but once you get towards the end, it's difficult to put down. If you enjoyed Higgins' other WWII novels you'll enjoy this one.

This book reminded me of a trip to McDonald's. It tastes okay and does the job, but that's about all. The characters are pretty cliché and so are their lines. "All roads lead to hell." The story could have been great, given that the main character was Hitler's right-hand man. Sadly, it was just okay. A final thought (that doesn't give anything away)..If you don't mind the type of story where a spy is a spy because of cutting edge surgery that enables him to look just like someone else then this book might be okay for you.

Well, I was expecting a very fast paced suspense thriller but instead I get a very common and typical story which revolves around Russian government and such.
