In Jack Higgins's classic international bestseller, an audacious Nazi plan to kidnap Winston Churchill threatens to tip the scales of World War II In November of 1943, an elite team of Nazi paratroopers descends on British soil with a diabolical goal: to abduct Winston Churchill and cripple the Allied war effort. The mission, ordered by Hitler himself and planned by Heinrich Himmler, is led by ace agent Kurt Steiner and aided on the ground by IRA gunman Liam Devlin. As the deadly duo executes Hitler's harrowing plot, only the quiet town of Studley Constable stands in their way. Its residents are the lone souls aware of the impending Nazi plan, and they must become the most unlikely of heroes as the fate of the war hangs in the balance

A thrilling historical fiction set in the WWII setting. Second half of the book is really fast paced with how the event unfold as per and not as per plan. (I wouldn't go beyond and spoil it)
The first half devotes to setting up this plot for the fast paced second half. The first half is like being in the roller coaster on the slow ascent before the thrilling downward ride.
This is an awesome read.
