“Jack Higgins” is the pseudonym of very prolific British spy novelist named Harry Patterson, who lives on one of the Channel Islands, is 87 years old, and has and has now published a phenomenal 84 suspense novels. He is an experienced professional and prodigious writer who keeps banging them out, but obviously, some are better than others. His all-time best signature piece is The Eagle Has Landed, which was subsequently made into and equally good movie. Most of them center on WW II, Ireland, or an assassination, and they are all light and readable, and not very complicated. Most of it is fairly straightforward good guys versus bad guys. Having read a decent number of his books, The Valhalla Exchange lies somewhere in the middle of the deck. Many of his stories use a literary device like of an old man telling a story in flashback, as he did here, or a tombstone in a graveyard, as a way of transporting the reader back in time. This one takes up the long-time mystery of what ever happened to Martin Bormann. History says Hitler’s secretive, but very powerful, Nazi Party Secretary was killed on the Weidendammer Bridge in central Berlin after escaping from the Bunker after Hitler killed himself. That story has many holes in it and there have been many reports of Bormann in South America long afterward. Higgins’ story has a disguised Bormann escaping south into Bavaria where he runs afoul of an American Army squad and a castle full of elderly political prisoners and generals. Well, the plot is a bit strange from that point, but if you ignore that, it makes a good airplane or swimming pool book, nonetheless.

I bought this book because I have enjoyed this author in the past. I had trouble focusing and understanding what is going on. Part of the book is in the present, most is in the past. At the 43% mark on my kindle I had no idea what was going on. I stopped, read another book, then came back to it. I began to understand what was going on, but I did not know what got me to that spot. I was simply viewing a moment in World War 2. I heard references to Valhalla, but did not know what it was, what was the point of the book. Just a ball of confusion.

Jack Higgins gives readers, as usual, a great view of living through historical events. One always gains insight and appreciation of others' experiences - dangers, evil, and shreds of humanity in a world few of us can, otherwise, imagine. One criticism, though: this work was quite difficult to follow simply because of the sheer numbers of named characters!

As usual Mr Higgins did not disappoint in the writing of this story,I am amazed at the high standards he maintains in his writing always a delight to read never a disappointing read. You can always count on a good experience when reading any thing Mr Higgins has written, in my opinion.

If I understand the genesis of the book, it was basically a discard, or unfinished novel, that finally saw the light of day. And good Higgins book it is, perhaps over-filled with characters. It is not a Ferguson/Dillon/Devlin novel, but "it'll do to take along"..

Jack Higgins at his best! I have read a many Jack Higgins novels over the years so he ranks as my favorite author. The story revolves around Nazi' escapees efforts to restore the Hitler dream of the Master Race. Plot is not so far fetched in view of recent advances in cloning of animals and now Chines announcement of advances with human genome cloning.

Jack Higgins weaves a tale of intrigue that is historical in character with a touch of fact that was never resolved. The story is fast moving and well written. Higgins keeps my attention and interest making the book hard to put down, until you get to the last pages. Another Higgins WINNER!!!!!!!!
Fast paced intrigue somewhat loosely based on historical events/figures at the close of WWII in Nazi Germany and then taken to the edge. Still can't figure out which bad guy was which at the end. If you like convoluted plots featuring a wide range of differing characters, this might be for you. I've read many of Higgins' novels and haven't found one that I didn't enjoy.

The story itself reads almost like a history text. Not in the dry facts sense, but rather in that there might well be more truth than fiction in what you have just read. And that would really be scary!
