Book Description

17 Jun 2013
Winston Churchill, the cigar-puffing icon of the British fighting spirit, embarks on a post-WWII crusade to lift the veil of secrecy that hangs over Stalin's Soviet Union. Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri sets the diplomatic stage upon which the world's political players grapple for supremacy as Churchill delivers his fated Iron Curtain speech on March 5th 1946. While the Soviet sphere of influence creeping across Europe is to be exposed, Stalin's NKVD recruits Frank Mueller, a zealous Nazi and former member of the German American Bund to assassinate Winston Churchill. During his mission, Mueller begins a dangerous affair with a woman he doesn't realize is his natural enemy. Only Churchill's loyal bodyguard, W. H. Thompson, senses trouble but will he react in time to save Churchill's life? In this gripping thriller co-authored by acclaimed author Warren Adler and Pulitzer Prize nominated Churchill historian James C. Humes, battles are fought not on the beaches, but behind closed doors in the shadows of espionage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 11 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Soviet operatives have infiltrated British and American governments at the highest level. As Churchill prepares to launch the Cold War, Stalin unleashes his trained mole, an American Nazi who served in Hitler's SS. His mission: Assassinate Winston Churchill.
Churchill travels with a lone bodyguard, W.H. Thompson, a former British police officer who protected Churchill faithfully through the turbulent years of war. Thompson alone senses danger, but will his trained instincts and vigilance be enough to protect the former Prime Minister from a ruthless killer? In this gripping historical thriller, battles are fought not on the beaches, on the landing grounds, in the fields, on the streets or in the hills, but behind closed doors in the shadows of espionage. (Author description)
I found this book both enthralling and intriguing. The combination of historical novel and non-fiction history gives the reader a thrilling read. Written from multiple points of view the novel provides a complete picture of the characters involved on the UK/US side and also the Soviet side.
The character of the assassin was particularly compelling as was that of the young typist. Highly recommended for readers of both thrillers and historical novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book , a must read 26 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book transports you into the post war era just before the Cold War. It is difficult to separate the fiction from fact, as this is very well written to the point you believe it is a historical novel. Churchill our wartime hero is targeted by an assassin during a visit to the USA, accompanied by Truman the current president, you are presented with many options on how the attempt will play out. The author explores Churchill's long time relationship with his bodyguard to prove that even in politics simple and trusting friendship are possible. Excellent book and is recommended as a must read.
