Flight of the Eagles is one of the YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU DIE BOOKS! I read it years ago then couldn't find it for years because it was from Canada. So now I found it read it, listen to it on audio, will read it over and over! Ì am a book snob! I lend my books out to my friends because they love my book choices.
This is my seventh book I've read by 'the master story teller." He has truly earned that title. This book kept the reader fairly interested all the way though but I think the last three chapters was one of those cases where I couldn't put the book down. All I can say is if you want suspense, I think this one has out done his others and that surely not saying that they weren't good reads too! Heinrich Himmler even makes an appearance in this book to bring in more suspense. Great work Jack! RSmith3024 N.C. USA
This marks the 14th Higgins adventure for me and it was the best thus far. This classic Higgins tale set during WWII is filled with all the technical details Higgins so adeptly incorporates into his works, but more than that it is simply a heroic story about an uncommon family and a series of events that both separate and unite them. Be prepared - Higgins pulls the rug out from under you during the last pages. I couldn't put it down . . .
