Jack Higgins, Night of the Fox - Classic Thriller

“Rommel.” Hitler smiled a ghastly smile that was almost one of triumph.
“So, the Desert Fox wishes to play games.”
“I’m almost certain of it.”
“The people’s hero,” Hitler said. “We must handle him carefully, wouldn’t you say?”
“Or outfox him, my Fuhrer,” Himmler said softly.
”Outfox him. Outfox the Desert Fox.” Hitler smiled delightfully. “Yes, I like that, Reichsfuhrer. I like that very much indeed.”

Night of the Fox by Jack Higgins
(available in eBook format)


Everybody knows Harry Patterson aka Jack Higgins. This international bestselling suspense thrilling author is among the world's most popular writers. Remembered by many for The Eagle Has Landed, his book Night of the Fox is equally as impressive. Though this book is a work of fiction, the writer's efforts to research the historical events on which it is based were painstakingly real. Higgins actually met with and reviewed the diaries of a woman who was trapped on Jersey during World War II.

Night of the Fox was made into a movie which starred two of my favorite actors, George Peppard (American officer, Col. Harry Martineau) and Michael York. (high-ranking German officer, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, the "Desert Fox"). If you are compiling a private library of suspense thrillers, this 3-in-1 would be a great addition!
