Description

Neil Mallory was a member of that rare breed of men, the pioneer pilots of the 'thirties. He loved aeroplanes as some men love horses : with a deep and unswerving passion. He was willing to fly anything rather than nothing and in the Brazil of 1938 found himself pushing incredibly old machines over some of the worst jungle in the world, work that no one else would touch. As long as he was flying Mallory was happy, but he hadn't reckoned on the Portuguese Rio das Mortes, the last place God made, the river of death where the savage Huna Indians killed any outsider on sight, or on Sam Hannah, the strange enigmatic American, ace of aces at twenty - three, now on the long slide to nowhere and willing to do anything, sacrifice anybody, to get back on top.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Jack Higgins

Henry Patterson ( July 27th, 1929 ) was born in Newcastle upon Tyne ( Tyne and Wear, England ). When his father ( English ) abandoned them soon afterward, his mother returned with him to her home town of Belfast ( Northern Ireland ). 


When his mother remarried, the family relocated to Leeds ( West Yorkshire, England ), where he attended the Roundhay Grammar School for Boys. He proved to be an indifferent student and left school with few formal qualifications. In 1947, he began two years of National Service, at first with the East Yorkshire Regiment, and later as a Non - Commissioned Officer of the Royal Horse Guards Regiment of the Household Cavalry, doing security work on the East German border. 


After leaving the army, Henry Patterson returned to London ( England ) to study sociology at the London School of Economics while working as a driver and labourer at night. He received his Third - Class degree after three years of study. After getting a teaching qualification, he accepted a job lecturing in social psychology and criminology. He taught liberal studies at Leeds Polytechnic University and education at James Graham College. 


During 1959, Henry Patterson began writing novels, using the following aliases : Harry Patterson, Martin Fallon and Hugh Marlowe. The growing success of his early work allowed him to take time off from his teaching, which he quit eventually to become a full - time novelist. 


Henry Patterson began using the pseudonym Jack Higgins ( sometimes he used to write as James Graham ) during the late 1960's. He is a very prolific writer, and as such, has published numerous books : Sad Wind from the Sea ( as Harry Patterson, 1959 ), Seven Pillars to Hell ( as Hugh Marlowe, 1963 ), Midnight Never Comes ( as Martin Fallon, 1966 ), The Khufra Run ( as James Graham, 1972 ), The Eagle Has Landed ( as Jack Higgins, 1975 ), Exocet ( as Jack Higgins, 1983 ), Drink with the Devil ( as Jack Higgins, 1996 ), The Wolf at the Door ( as Jack Higgins, 2009 ).
