You may or may not know that bestselling novelist of the ‘70s and ‘80s Jack Higgins was also published under the name of Harry Patterson. The Valhalla Exchange is one of those and it was first published in 1976. Itâs been out of print for some while and now Higginsâ publishers have decided to republish the Patterson titles under Jack Higgins. Itâs brilliant World War Two action set at the end of the war when the Russians are moving relentlessly south through the ruins of Berlin and towards the bunker where the Nazi administration is falling apart, but itâs also about a mystery that has fascinated the world ever since as well as the fate of some prisoners of war who have yet to be liberated. Gripping stuff and fascinating too.

If you like Jack Higgins you might also like to read books by Alistair MacLean, Alan Hunter and Chris Ryan.

Synopsis

The Valhalla Exchange by Jack Higgins

On the 30th April 1945, Russian radar reported a light aircraft leaving the vicinity of the Tiergarten in Berlin. But who was on board, and where was the plane going?

Berlin was in ruins as the Russians moved relentlessly towards the concrete bunker where the Nazi adminstration had been destroyed. But one man, Reichsleiter Martin Bormann, Adolf Hitlerâs secretary and eminence grise had a daring plan to escape.

Far away to the south–west , at Schloss Arlberg above the River Inn, five prisoners of war were contemplating their fate. Would they be murdered by their captors or liberated by the Russians?

Unbeknown to them Bormann has his own plans. They are about to become part of a mystery that has fascinated the world for over sixty years. What exactly did happen to Bormann and his prisoners?
