This is a World War Two spy novel, yet much more than that. It features the factual mystery project of the Nazis named Die Glocke - The Bell. The story begins in wartorn Vienna and moves to London and Silesia and the The Bell itself. Twists and turns keep the reader guessing to the final page. A must read for anybody interested in World War Two and the mystery surrounding General Hans Kammler. The original book was loaded onto Kindle with typos. This is the revised book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Companion to Holiday Read 12 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this and its companion Death Beach and enjoyed the pair. Competently written and the plotline was as good as many; and moved along at a good pace. Worth reading. Ignore my stars as 5* is reserved for 'exceptional' books (think Booker prize winners).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a quick read 26 Dec 2013

I read this book quickly. It is a good yarn, but still contains some typos.

I liked the way I could 'see' the action in it, which is always a good sign of book. I'm always interested in material covering the Second World War. I liked that 'The Facts' and 'The Fictions' were detailed at the end of the book.

I disliked the typos, and some of the detail about the technologies went on a bit.

This book is a good readable yarn and I would recommend it as a quick read to friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death Bell Suspense Thriller 23 May 2013
By Patwrites - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Peter Francis' Death Bell has everything you could want in a thriller: suspense, intrigue, espionage, and betrayal. I especially like that he was inspired to write this story from a factual mystery that occurred in World War II. I am referring to the Bell Project, General Hans Kammler's disappearance after the war, and Hitler's secret weapon.

Peter's characters are believable, and the plot has many surprising twists and turns. He keeps the reader guessing about who the "good guys" are and who the "bad guys" are. He builds the momentum as the story develops and I could not put the book down.

The ending is a little unbelievable, but then that is why it is fiction, right?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it to everyone. However, I could not give this book a five star rating because of one thing that really disappointed me. There were numerous typos in this book. One or two typos would be no big deal. But there were a lot which diminished the enjoyment of reading the book.

I just do not understand how someone can write such a great story and not be professional enough to thoroughly have it proofread and edited.

Peter Francis writes a compelling narrative. I have been quite interested in the bell since learning of it some years ago.Francis has spun a marvelous, plausible wartime tale around the mystery of der Glocke. A true "must" for WW II history buffs.
