Actually written in 1971, and originally published under the names J Long in hardback and Harry Patterson in paperback. But let’s not get too technical! The novel, as you would expect, is fast-paced and thoroughly enjoyable. The main character Ellis Jackson, a soldier and ex Viet Cong prisoner, is made to doubt his sanity after he is accused of the brutal murder of his lover and best friend.
Toll for the Brave by Jack Higgins
Ellis Jackson woke up hugging a twelve-bore shotgun. In the next room, his mistress and his best friend lay naked on the bed, their heads blown to pulp. Back in England at last, Ellis Jackson had finally cracked.
Active combat, a Viet Cong prison camp and the callous treachery of his lover and interrogator, Madam Ny, had taken their toll. Ellis Jackson was out of his mind. Or was he?
Maybe it would all have been easier to take if he really had been mad
