Publisher's Summary

A classic thriller featuring the most daring escape of the Second World War, from the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Eagle Has Landed.

American Colonel Hugh Kelso is washed ashore on German-held Jersey in Spring 1944, with top-secret D-Day plans in his possession. To get him back, the most daring escape of the Second World War must be planned and executed.

Harry Martineau, bilingual philosophy professor turned assassin, and Sarah Drayton, a beautiful, half-French Jersey native, are selected to carry out the mission, and set off to steal the most precious Allied asset from under the noses of the Nazis....

Great story...AWFUL NARRATION !!!

Night of the Fox is one of my favourite Jack Higgins books. It contains everything you could want in a WW2 action/espionage thriller and I recommend this story for anyone with a love of WW2 novels. Sadly though, I would recommend poeple to either buy a copy of the book and read it themselves or find the audio CD narrated by Michael Page, rather than listen to the awful narrartion by Andy Cresswell. Cresswell's accents are nowhere close to the real thing, the only accent he is able to perform convincingly is upper class English (which I'm assuming is his natural accent !!!). The German accents all sound the same and not like any German person I've ever met !!! Cresswell's Rommel sounds more like Dracula from an old movie and I was expecting the Field Marshal at any moment to say "I want to suck your blood". Cresswell's narration was so bad it made me lose concentration so many times and the only reason I didn't get lost in the story is because I know it so well. Sadly this is an extremely poor performance of one of Higgins best works.

weird accents used

Not quite sure what was happening with the reader as he kept on trying to change accents

Very good story at times confusing

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Jack Higgins at his best trying to make you wonder who is on which side.
