Publisher's Summary

Wartime secrets threaten to topple a president in a heart-stopping adventure from the incomparable Jack Higgins.

In the waning days of World War II, Hitler entrusted his diary to a young aide, Baron Max von Berger. Over the years von Berger has used his inheritance to become one of the richest men in the world, developing a secret alliance with the Rashid family - longtime foes of Major Ferguson of British Intelligence; his undercover enforcer, Sean Dillon; and their American colleague, Blake Johnson.

Now the ultimate confrontation is drawing near. The diary and its explosive revelations of a secret wartime meeting between emissaries of Hitler and Roosevelt will destroy the US president, Jake Cazalet...unless Dillon can find it first.

Compelling from start to finish

First of all the narrator was top notch. I could stop listening to this classic Higgins Dillon mystery. Impossible as ever to distinguish the blurred lines between truth and fiction. Throughly enjoyed and can’t wait to listen to more!

interesting story but badly narrated

sadly the narrator was not Michael Page. could not finish this version. Sean Dillon series needs consistency and is more enjoyable when that happens

Good story, poor narration.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I might recommend it for the story however the narration by Jonathan Oliver leaves a lot to be desired. The German accent is good. The Irish accent is poor. If you want to get the 'flavor' of Dillon I would recommend that you read the stories narrated by Michael Page. He is superb.

Another superb winner to the service of Oliver.

Takes place in the world we live in today.
