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.
