The Eagle Has Landed by Jack Higgins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It is disheartening to me whenever a good story comes to an end, one such book is Jack Higgins "The Eagle Has Landed". I came to know about this book last year. I borrowed from a library read quarter last year and was not able to get hold the book again. Fortunately this year I got the opportunity to hold this book and finished reading. I enjoyed each and every page, the characters Liam Devlin and Steiner will be cherished in my heart.
The story, Adolf Hitler hints about an idea of kidnapping the Prime Minister of England Winston Churchill. Colonel Radl was given the idea to be developed into a feasible mission, he selects the eligible person for the task. Devlin and Steiner comes in. An old woman Joanna Grey who despises the British and works for Germany sends information about the visit of Churchill and his over night stay in Studley Grange. Devlin was sent early to that village to make arrangements. There he meets Molly Prior (a love story very much enjoyable in between the war torn country) fells in love. Steiner and his team arrives then the mission nears the success stage. The last 30 pages will reveal what happened in the end.
