This is a long book with many details and characters, and it's phenomenally good. I haven't read anything by this author so far that was anything but 5 star, but I still have many of his books to read. Spandau Phoenix is totally different subject matter than Mortal Fear, and yet the author makes every nuance so real.

This story takes place around the time Rudolph Hess disappeared while on a secret mission, and also in the 1980s. It involves several countries and their top brass, and yet it's an engaging personal story, as well. It's one possible explanation of what happened to Hess and his double, a great thriller.

If you like thrillers, read anything by this author. Then maybe read it again. This author's mind is way ahead of most of us. ( )

A very good "what if" tale. What if Rudolf Hess was never held in Spandau prison, but had a double who took his place? This story pits the English, Germans, & Russians against one another while simple folks suffer for the nations' need to protect their images. Not my favorite Greg Iles novel, but that is okay. ( )

I was looking forward to reading this having read the author's previous WW2 "faction" thriller. The opening sections setting the scenes in WW2 in the UK and in 1987 Germany, just after Hess' death in Spandau Prison, didn't disappoint. However, the final part of the plot in South Africa was less credible subsiding into a James Bond style fanatical world dictator style storyline. Therefore ultimately disappointing, but nonetheless making good use of the Hess rumours, only recently resurfacing - see for examplehttp://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/adolf-hitlers-nazi-deputy-rudolf-hess-murdered-by-british-agents-to-stop-him-spilling-wartime-secrets-8802603.html.
