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 - long-time 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.

Jack Higgins was a soldier and then a teacher before becoming a full-time writer. The Eagle Has Landed turned him into an international bestselling author and his novels have since sold over 250 million copies and been translated into fifty-five languages. Many of them have also been made into successful films.From AudioFile:
BAD COMPANY: bad news. When a farfetched storyline is blended with a miscast reader, the result lacks both balance and continuity. In the closing hours of WWII, Hitler presents his diary, and access to billions in Nazi plunder, to a senior aide, with instructions to carry on the cause. The aide, a German nobleman, uses the funds to build an industrial fortune. He stashes the diary, which contains information that can ruin the 21st-century American president. Now the good guys are pitted against bad to recapture the diary and save the president. British reader Patrick Macnee, whose crisp diction and bright voice fit characters from the U.K. perfectly, works far too hard to present key players from the U.S., Germany, and Italy. Overplayed situations and accents scuttle the last ray of hope for this effort. Higgins fans may enjoy BAD COMPANY. Few others will.
