2 HIGGINS, Jack Day of Judgment. First Edition in dustjacket
Collins, London, 1978, 
HIGGINS, Jack. Day of Judgment. London : Collins, 1978. First Edition. Pp (8),9-224. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The Vatican wanted tosave him. President Kennedy, about to visit West Berlin in 1963, wanted to save him. The girl who had betrayed him to the East Germans, herself the d aughter of a traitor, wanted to save him. So did one of the heads of West German Intelligence, and his former opponent on the British side. What man could motivate the same urge for so many different reasons, political and personal? Only someone extraordinary. The extraordinary man was Father Sean Conlin, a frail, stubborn, old Irishman, staunch opponent of Communism, who for years had smuggled refugees to the West. Now the East Germans had him in an impregnatefortress fifty miles inside the border, and they were intenton making him recant publicly in time to ruin Kennedy's goodwill visit. Ar rayed against him was the world's leading specialist in 'thought reform', alias brainwashing: Harry van Buren, once American, , now anti all things American, whose victims always ended by agreeing with him - if they lived. Would Conlin? or would the strangely assorted team intent on his rescue get through to him in time. It included six Lutheran monks and an ex-Luftwaffe ace and an English major with the unenviable nickname of1 'The Beast of Selangor'; a Jewish undertaker and the exiSS caretaker of the prison tortress. Not all of them would survive. Who lived, who died, who talked and who keptsilent, make a story of racking suspense, in which international events an d personal crises are fused by Jack Higgins into a spellbinding whole" - from the dj.

3 HIGGINS, Jack Night of the Fox. First Edition in dustjacket
Collins, London, 1986, 
HIGGINS, Jack. Night of the Fox. London : Collins, 1986. First Edition. Pp (8),9-250,(2). 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Colonel Kelso was a "Bigot", codeword for a man in possession of ultra-secret information -in his case the beaches in Normanay that had been chosen for the invasion. His disappearance after a landing-cralt was sunk during an exercise caused panic in the Allied high command; the news that he had escaped deatn only to be washed ashore in German-occupied Jersey redoubled the consternation. Somehow he had to be snatched from under the Germans' noses, or else ruthlessly silenced. Harry Martineau, philosophy don turned killer for his country, bilingual in German, used to impersonating Nazi officers, was the obvious choice for so desperate an enterprise; nineteen-year-old Sarah Drayton, half French, who knew Jersey intimateiy and in whose aunt's house Kelso was sheltering, was as inevitably destined to be his partner. And so Standartenfuhrer Max Vogel and his Frencn mistress Anne-Marie iLatour set off to rescue Kelso from the impregnable iortress that Jersey had become under German occupation. Counter-bluff upon blutt, deceptive upon deception, Jack Higgins builds up his enthralling story with all the ingenuity and panache [...].. But it is in his characterization that he above all excels. Martineau; S arah Drayton; Orsini, the glamorous Italian auventurer; Gallagher, veteran of the Irish wars; Baum, Jewish variety actor turned paratrooper - these are real people who laugh when tickled and bleed when pncked" - from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 20.00
