Checkmate in Rio (UK) by Valerie Moolman

Destination South America
And for Nick Carter
an appointment with danger


Axe's man in Rio wasn't there any more. In fact, the whole intelligence apparatus that had been built with such care and operated with such cunning had winked out like a series of shorted TV tubes. National security, violence and a mysterious woman. The assignment had to be one for Nick Carter.

The Eagle Has Landed by Jack Higgins

The Eagle Has Landed

After Mussolini was deposed and imprisoned by the Italian government, Otto Skorzeny led a German team and achieved his release and escape from Italy. Hitler, with the strong support of Himmler, considered a similar plan to kidnap British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, head of the Abwehr (German military intelligence), is ordered to make a feasibility study of capturing Churchill and taking him to the Reich. Canaris realises that although Hitler will soon forget the matter, Himmler will not. Fearing Himmler may try to discredit him, Canaris orders one of his officers, Oberst Radl, to undertake the study, despite feeling that it is all a waste of effort.
