Cold Harbour - Jack Higgins ****

Jack Higgins is easily my most read Author, with a career spanning six decades he really has stood the test of time. He writes mostly about hard men that are placed in life or death situations either situated during a conflict or with IRA connections. Cold Harbour is no exception and is set during the Second World War and showcases a number of strong male characters who would put a bullet between your eyes first and ask questions later.

Cold Harbour was written in 1990 and for me this really marked a turning point in his career. After this date we were introduced to the Sean Dillon books and his writing tended to become a lot more formulaic, where ideas from previous novels started to become recycled and a number of the books blended into each other. The novels were still good, just seemed to have lost that spark that early Higgins managed to inject. But fortunately this novel is vintage Higgins.

The plot has a number of twists and it isn’t simple to second guess where Higgins is taking you. It is difficult to describe the storyline of Cold Harbour without giving away a few of its secrets but I can safely say this has to be in the top 25% of Higgin’s works. If you had to create a checklist of what you would expect between the covers of his best works then this would leave very few blanks. Subterfuge, double agents, death, honour and getting the job done at any cost are just a few of the themes as we see the British military at their most deviant and the German army at their most cruel. As usual the novel seems to be flawlessly set against real historical events which give the characters an even grittier realism.

Not his best but also not a bad place to start. ( )

This is the first and probably the last book that I have read by this author. The story line had possibilities but the thin development of the stereotype characters and plot make the book a very unsatisfactory read. ( )

### Product Description

A classic World War Two adventure on the eve of D-Day.

A routine mission ends in icy terror for OSS agent Craig Osborne, as he floats helplessly in the sea off the coast of Brittany. The rumble of engines should signal rescue...

But it is a German warship which appears out of the fog – hauling Osborne to safety and preparing him for the fight.

As the time of invasion approaches, the Allies are ready to play their dirtiest trick: dispatching a highly trained killer behind German lines – in a disguised E-boat with the name Lili Marlene emblazoned on its prow...
