Reissue of the timeless Higgins classic…

Captain Hugh Lomax's last view of Kyros had been as a German prisoner of war. The picturesque beauty of the Greek Islands hiding their blood-drenched history and the terrifying carnage that took place years earlier.

But there are questions still unanswered. Lomax knows he was innocent, and as he returns to Kyros he begins to remember things he had long since buried in the back of his mind; the deadly mission he undertook, as well as a horrific massacre that still remains without reason. Now, the time has come for answers.

Lomax is set to unlock the secrets of his past; someone betrayed the islanders at the height of the Nazi occupation, and they want their secret kept, whatever it takes, whoever has to suffer.

Jack Higgins

Jack Higgins is, like James Graham, Martin Fallon and Hugh Marlowe, a round and pseudonym for his real name: Harry Patterson. Jack Higgins is nowadays a multi-millionaire who lives on Jersey (one of the Channel Islands) with his wife.

Jack Higgins was born July 27th 1929 and raised in Belfast in a family with a political background and frequently experienced the worst aspect of the troubles during his youth. He later moved to Leeds, left school with no qualification at an early age and had a succession of jobs, including two years as an NCO in the Royal House of Guards serving on the East German border during the Cold War.

He was then accepted as an external student at London University while working as a circus tent-hand, a tram conductor and most things in between, and a degree in sociology took him into teaching before he became a full-time author. He was already a writer of adventure stories when he, in his forties, wrote "The eagle has landed" but this highly original war novel turned him into an international bestselling author. His novels have been translated into more than forty languages. He is also the Patron of the Jersey Film Society.

He now holds a honorary award at Leeds Metropolitan university and is a professor a Manchester University.
