9780007349333: To Catch a King

1940. Hitler’s terrifying war machine will soon roll through England, and in its wake Hitler plans to enthrone puppet monarchs under Nazi control. For these roles he demands none other than the exiled Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

Berlin. Brilliant SS officer Walter Schellenberg is ordered to “persuade” the Duke and Duchess to the Nazi cause. But when Shellenberg impulsively aids the escape of beautiful Jewish nightclub singer Hannah Winter, he plunges them both into a dark arena of intrigue and betrayal. Hunted by ruthless Gestapo agents, chased through the deadly underground from Berlin to Madrid to Lisbon, they are racing on a collision course with their own loyalties—and the fate of all England.

“Higgins is the master’s master of World War II spycraft storytelling” —United Press International

About the Author:

Since The Eagle Has Landed—one of the biggest-selling thrillers of all time—every novel Jack Higgins has written 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, including The Eagle Has Landed, To Catch a King, On Dangerous Ground, Eye of the Storm, and Thunder Point. 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 in Jersey on the Channel Islands.

From AudioFile:

[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with WRATH OF THE LION.]--These two thrillers from the master of the craft feature adept abridgments and lively performances. Christopher Lee presents a polished reading of TO CATCH A KING, including skilled characterizations of male and female spies and Nazis. His flawless timing holds listener interest from start to finish. Nicol Williamson's WRATH OF THE LION, though well read, suffers from an annoyingly uneven audio mixing. Elderly characters drop to inaudible levels, while the bad guys hurt your ears. And his perfect interpretations of French characters speaking English are so French that the English words are nearly impossible to understand.
