The Bormann Testament, Jack Higgins-Book Review
The Bormann Testament by Jack Higgins is a new version Of The Testaments of Casper Shultz. It is a good thriller of the acquisition of the memoirs of a Nazi who was Hitlers associate. There are many German Nazis and dignitaries that don't want these known. The story begins in England where Paul Chavasse is summoned by his chief of intelligence to get these memoirs. Paul travels to Germany to do so and runs into trouble from the start. There was a leak of info and Paul was the scape goat. After a confrontation on a train, Paul is rescued by an Israeli Nazi hunter who works with Paul to get the testament. Higgins includes much action, love and espionage that makes this story good. This is a well documented account of what could happen if this were true. The pace is active throughout and the ending makes you think. Jack Higgins has done a reputable job.
