Read full description of the books The White House Connection:Should we be held accountable for the faults, mistakes, sins, and aggressions of our fathers?
Baron Max von Berger, aid to Adolph Hitler during the final months of the Third Reich, is given a task, a heavy burden, and a golden opportunity when he is ordered to flee Berlin hours before its collapse, fly to the west and the American forces and surrender. He has with him the only copy of Hitler’s diary and he is to keep it hidden until such time it can be used against the powers that implemented Germany’s destruction. He is also given Swiss bank account numbers, providing him with almost unlimited funds to rebuild an empire. That is exactly what he did…..
Sean Dillon is a jack of all trades when it comes to intelligence, counterintelligence terrorism, assignations, and liquidations, and has played on many different teams in his career. The one time Northern Irish activist to a valued member of British Intelligence, Jack has seen and done it all. He is ordered to recover the diary and ensure that its contents remain secret as they may, even today fifty-five years after they were written, cause global upheaval.
This is the first Jack Higgins book I’ve read published in the Twenty-first Century. The form remains the same, as does the reading appeal, but I do have a problem…. What do you do when you like ALL of the characters? I found myself rooting for both sides, in total consternation as to who were the good guys and who were the bad. Halfway through the book, I picked a side and rode the story out to its end. I really enjoyed this book and feel sure many other readers will agree.
Read information about the authorThere is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.
Jack Higgins is the pseudonym of Harry Patterson (b. 1929), the New York Times bestselling author of more than seventy thrillers, including The Eagle Has Landed and The Wolf at the Door. His books have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide.
Born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, Patterson grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland. As a child, Patterson was a voracious reader and later credited his passion for reading with fueling his creative drive to be an author. His upbringing in Belfast also exposed him to the political and religious violence that characterized the city at the time. At seven years old, Patterson was caught in gunfire while riding a tram, and later was in a Belfast movie theater when it was bombed. Though he escaped from both attacks unharmed, the turmoil in Northern Ireland would later become a significant influence in his books, many of which prominently feature the Irish Republican Army. After attending grammar school and college in Leeds, England, Patterson joined the British Army and served two years in the Household Cavalry, from 1947 to 1949, stationed along the East German border. He was considered an expert sharpshooter.
Following his military service, Patterson earned a degree in sociology from the London School of Economics, which led to teaching jobs at two English colleges. In 1959, while teaching at James Graham College, Patterson began writing novels, including some under the alias James Graham. As his popularity grew, Patterson left teaching to write full time. With the 1975 publication of the international blockbuster The Eagle Has Landed, which was later made into a movie of the same name starring Michael Caine, Patterson became a regular fixture on bestseller lists. His books draw heavily from history and include prominent figures—such as John Dillinger—and often center around significant events from such conflicts as World War II, the Korean War, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Patterson lives in Jersey, in the Channel Islands.
