Game For Heroes, A

Performed by:
Michael Page

The occupied Channel Islands: the last outpost of German resistance at the end of a long and savage conflict. Most feared amongst them: St Pierre, the heavily guarded fortress chosen by a crazed SS Commandant for his suicidal final stand. With Berlin on the verge of capture, it is the most sensitive mission of the war. An end game that calls for a hero – with something else besides. A game for a battle-hardened veteran ready to lay down his life for his birthplace. And for the woman he left behind… “Jack Higgins is the master craftsman of good, clean adventure…in the footsteps of Sapper and the great John Buchan” – Daily Mail

Jack Higgins

Biography:
Since The Eagle Has Landed—one of the biggest-selling thrillers of all time—every novel Jack Higgins has written, including his most recent works, A Devil Is Waiting and The Death Trade, has become an international bestseller. He has had simultaneous number-one bestsellers in hardcover and paperback, and many of his books have been made into successful movies, among them The Eagle Has Landed, To Catch a King, On Dangerous Ground, Eye of the Storm, and Thunder Point. Higgins, who lived in Belfast until he was twelve, had several close calls with bombs and gunfire at an early age. After leaving school at fifteen, he served three years with the Royal Horse Guards in Eastern Europe during the cold war. Subsequently, he was a circus roustabout, a factory worker, a truck driver, and a laborer, before entering college at age twenty-seven. He has degrees in sociology, social psychology, and economics from the University of London, and a doctorate in media from Leeds Metropolitan University. A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an expert scuba diver and marksman, Higgins lives on Jersey in the Channel Islands.
