One of the Paul Chavasse series.
A taut, electrifying thriller of murder, betrayal-and daring escape..."A Wonderful storyteller!"
If you enjoy Jack higgins other books, this one is one of his best ones by far.
With commando like precision, someone was breaking Britian's most notorious prisoners out of jail and delivering convicted spies back to the Communists. His code name was The Baron - a ruthless mastermind so mysterious there was just one way to trace him: put in a secret operative inside the walls and let The Baron get him out.
To do it the Special Branch needed an agent with the cunning mind of a criminal and the cold heart of a killer. That agent wa Paul Chavasse - tough enough to withstand the raw violence of prison life, smart enough to survive a heart stopping escape to the unknown, ingenious enough to pull off a chilling doublecross and an explosive, death defying plan to capture The Baron.
A suspense adventure thriller about a British agent sent undercover to catch a ruthless Soviet agent who is masterminding the escape of key convicted spies from prison & smuggling them back to the USSR.
Excellent Jack Higgins book. Full of twists and unexpected conclusions.
