SOUTH BY JAVA HEAD
1942: Singapore lies shattered, overrun by the conquering Japanese army, as the last boat slips out to sea. On board, a desperate group of people, each with a secret they will kill to protect. Ahead lie murderous dive-bombers, the fierce tropical sun, and the hell-bent Japanese, who will stop at nothing to prevent the boat escaping south by Java Head.
‘Deighton’s research and plotting are as surefooted as ever, while the pace and tension leave one almost breathless. A frightening yet compelling novel’
‘Deighton brilliantly depicts the evolution of Hitler’s regime through telling detail’
‘Higgins is a master craftsman at the peak of his powers … first-rate tales of intrigue, suspense and full-on action.’
‘[In South by Java Head] Excitements come and go at breathless speed’
