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. Justin Richards is the author of over a dozen genre and sf novels (including Dr Who). He lives in Warwick with his wife, two sons and a nice view of the castle.Review:
"A compelling thriller from a master storyteller." Waterstone's Books Quarterly "All the action you could want... with all the testosterone, adrenaline and humour you could wish for." Books for Keeps "Jack Higgins, the master of modern thriller writing, treats a younger audience to a brilliant helping of suspense, spills and thrills in this great action-packed children's thriller. Fast-paced, great dialogue, a perfect stocking-filler!" Gateway Monthly
