Sequel to The Eagle Has Landed.
Colonel Kurt Steiner, the brilliant and compassionate German paratroop officer believed to have been shot dead during his abortive assassination attemp on the Prime Minister, actually survives his wounds and is spirited away to the Tower of London, where he is held a secret prisoner. When word of Steiner's whereabouts reaches Germany, dreaded Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler arranges a seemingly honorable scenario: the rescue of Steiner from the Tower and his triumphant return to the Fatherland.
But Himmler has less than a hero's welcome ready for the man who failed to carry out what Himmler hoped would be the greatest coup of the war. And the only man capable of meeting such a seemingly impossible challenge? Liam Devlin: IRA gunman, poet and scholoar, whose infamously legendary feats of bravery and daring never cease to amaze those who seek his assistance.
Brigidier Dougal Munro of British Intelligence, as devious and cold-hearted as any Naza counterpart, devises a deadly game of cat and mouse, but he meets his match in General Walter Schellenberg, a brilliant soldier who is no Nazi, appointed by Himmler to mastermind the rescue attempt.
With the help of old friend and fellow IRA member Michael Ryan and his gentle and lovely niece Mary, Nazi sympathizers Sir Maxwell and Lavinia Shaw, and American fighter pilot Asa Vaughan, who fought the Finns against Russia but now finds himself trapped in the George Washington Legion of the SS, the devilishly cunning Devlin prepares to find and rescue Steiner--whose fate as a German hero may be even more dangerous than as a prisoner of war. And when an unexpected and truly deadly conspriacy emerges as Himmler's real plans bubble to the surface, it's up to Devlin and Steiner to aid Schellenberg in preventing his country and the rest of the world from falling into the hands of a man even more insane and twisted than the Fuhrer himself...
