Awards and Fame

As in many novels of Higgins, this story is surrounded by a 'frame story' with a prologue and epilogue. The author, whilst doing historical research in Norfolk, supposedly meets various surviving characters. Some paperback editions have more historical backstory than others, including a meeting with an older Liam Devlin in a Belfast hotel. The final revelation comes from an aged and terminally ill Father Vereker: "Churchill" had been an impersonator and even if the mission had succeeded, it would not have mattered.

We highly recommend the book because it was very interesting, included a lot of action, drama and even love.He was very exacting and mostly surprising and we very enjoyed to read it.We discussed about him and we got to conclusions about it for example that the courses of action the American was very smart.To sum up ,go to the stores and buy it!

We both agreed that the part we most love in the book is the moment when Colonel Stenier standing infront of Churchill while he pointing a gun infront of him.We chose this part because he presents the high of the book-when the hole goal of the operation to kill Churchill or kindapp him caming true.
