Product Description

Product Description

It was a long, long war for Harry Cassidy.

He was a strip of a lad in short pants when Hitler's bombs forced him out of the city to the remote countryside.

He was newly out of high school when he put on his khaki army uniform, picked up a rifle, and drilled to kill for his country.

He was a university student when he was lured into intelligence work where he lost his innocence in the murky depths of espionage, and his treasonous first young love to an assassin with a license to kill.

In this riveting story, names have been changed to protect the innocent -- and the guilty -- and to keep faith with the Official Secrets Act the author signed almost a lifetime ago.

But 'Young Blood' is the dramatic story of a casualty of war whose childhood and youth were sacrificed to the most evil years of the Twentieth Century ... without ever firing a shot in anger.

Alistair Kinnon is an author. His best-selling crime books include 'The Tangled Web' and 'The Noose Tightens'.

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital bools.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Delight To Read 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase
Young Blood is a fantastic insight into the life of Private Harry Cassidy. From the life of an evacuee, a spy, student, solider, and teacher, his character is charismatic, personable, intelligent and extremely likeable. There were some aspects of the book that I had slight issues with. There could have been more continuity between the chapters; there was little continuity between his life as an evacuee to suddenly becoming a spy. If there had been more information about what led him to each stage in his life, the reader would have understood Harry more. His time working as a spy greatly dominates the book. I feel more attention could have been given to other stages in his life; his life after becoming a teacher is not covered at all, for example. However, on the whole, `Young Blood' was a delight to read - dramatic, well written and insightful, I would highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book that makes you savour your childhood. 15 May 2013
Simply astonishing story. I honestly don't want to write too much and give it away - but this books has a bit of everything. Harry's experiences will not disappoint - even the most avid thriller reader will be entertained and shocked.

A story of a young person thrown into an incredibly difficult situation. A book for those who love tales of intelligence and espionage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kinnon produces a new spy 1 July 2013
By Slick - Published on
Verified Purchase
Kinnon takes a very young college student and gets him involved in a summer job that will allow him to spend his entire summer in Paris all expenses paid. Naturally, that is to good to be true. The prodigy of the story, Harry Cassidy is an extremely intelligent lad that bites on the opportunity presented to him and although a complete neophite to the world of spying learns quickly that you either learn or you could be terminated. No James Bond and not meant to be, Harry does the whole spy gambit; messenger boy,sleuth, even romantic. The book starts out easy and gets busier and more interesting as you go along. Well worth the read
