Book Description

7 Nov 2013

WEWELSBURG CASTLE, 1940.

The German war machine has woken an ancient threat - the alien Vril and their Ubermensch have returned. Ultimate Victory in the war for Europe is now within the Nazis' grasp.

ENGLAND, 1941

Foreign Office trouble shooter Guy Pentecross has stumbled into a conspiracy beyond his imagining - a secret war being waged in the shadows against a terrible enemy.

The battle for Europe has just become the war for humanity.

This is The Thirty-Nine Steps crossed with Indiana Jones and Quatermass. Justin Richards has an extremely credible grasp of the period's history and has transformed it into a groundbreaking alternate reality thriller.

Product Description

Review

"I enjoyed this book. It combines elements of many genres. Parts of this made me think of Indiana Jones, or possibly the da Vinci Code with a bit of James Bond thrown in while others were much closer to sci-fi. But the overall story is completely original, something I find very refreshing with the amount of books I go through. This book has some degree of sexual tension, but no sex whatsoever, and while there is violence, it does not depend on blood or gore, but rather on actual plot . I believe I will enjoy the next one even more." (The Bookbag)

"Justin Richards has reworked an old myth to nightmarish effect. You get the feeling that if the Nazis could have done this, they would. The Suicide Exhibition has a ghastly plausibility." (Stephen Baxter)

"perfectly captured . a complex spy thriller reminiscent of Operation Mincemeat . or James Bond - if James Bond had aliens in it . a cast of well-developed characters and a good tale, well told" (Starburst magazine)

"Justin Richards brings all his skills as a leading Dr Who writer to this tale of wartime intelligence at odds with some of H.P. Lovecraft's worst nightmares . Bulldog Drummond meets Luther Arkwright! Here's a story of World War Two and the Nazi war machine . Justin Richards puts all his usual expertise into this marvellous romp. Everything you would expect of this outstanding tale-spinner!" (Michael Moorcock)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Suicide Exhibition 3 Jan 2014
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
In August 1940, nothing occurred at Shingle Bay - at least, not officially. And what didn't happen was sealed under official classifications until 2040 by Winston Churchill. But when Major Guy Pentecross was asked to speak to a German man dying in hospital, and was warned off by a mysterious Sergeant Green, he wondered why, and why the dying man had said one word only - "Ubermensch". In 1941, Standartenfuhrer Hans Streicher of the SS is overseeing an archaeological excavation in France, reporting directly to Himmler. And whatever Himmler is doing, it has frightened the Deputy Fuhrer Rudolf Hess sufficiently to take flight to England, where Guy Pentecross again comes up against a wall of silence. But this time he's determined to find out what's going on, and why.

Every story I've read by Justin Richards in the Doctor Who genre has always been top notch, and this book, not Doctor Who but a whole new creation is no exception. The writing is brilliant, the story is absolutely fantastic. This is a brilliantly conceived look at World War II from a whole new perspective. The author has been extremely clever in seamlessly weaving together established history and real people, events and concepts with a brilliantly thought out notion of another player in this period of World history. What or who they are, and what they may want is yet to be established. At the end of this book the scene is set for a great sequel (hopefully many more) as we wait to find out what happens next. If you are a fan of Justin Richard's writing, or if you just enjoy great thriller/historical/sci-fi novels, full of action, great characters and wonderful narrative, you must read this book - you will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Sci Fi/Alt-History Mash-up 13 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover
I don't read a massive amount of alternate history, but I have to admit that something about the premise of this novel immediately appealed to me. Secret Nazi schemes involving advanced alien races and the quest for the Nietzschean superman. A plot like that sounds as though it could certainly hold the promise of something entertaining.

Rising against the Nazi/Vril threat are the men and women of Station Z, the British department who exist shrouded in the utmost secrecy. They are tasked with stopping Axis plans by any means necessary, even if that involves working with "the most evil man who ever lived". There are also a handful of chapters that cover the action from the perspective of the Axis soldiers. These provide a nice counterpoint to the main narrative.

The main character, Guy Pentecross, acts as the reader's conduit into this shadowy world of espionage and aliens. Naturally gifted and with an ear for languages he has a strong sense of duty and is more than willing to do his bit when it comes to the war effort. He unwittingly finds himself drawn into plans of Station Z and as he learns their secrets he becomes another member of the team who are the Allies last line of defence. I liked Pentecross, he's like the living embodiment of a stiff upper lip. Terribly British and all that.

Add to that the extra wrinkle of some nicely developed science fiction and the beginnings of an intriguing new series are starting to emerge. This first novel in The Never War is all about setting the scene, revealing the existence of a hidden conflict that is running parallel to the world at war. There are certainly still plenty of tantalising questions left unanswered at novel's end and I think this will make readers come back for more.
