5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant dramatization of our very-near history!, 7 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Broken Crystal (Kindle Edition)
Broken Crystal is a brilliant dramatization of how history could so nearly of happened at the end of the Second World War.

Diligently researched it takes us from Hitler and his smitten deputy, to the cryptography sheds of Bletchley Park. Will the establishment win? Who exactly is the enemy? The author takes a story we think we know well and forces us to question every single assumption.

With plot turns aplenty the novel has the feel of a Dan Brown epic, without the dumbed-down plot. Highly recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling badly written - gives self-publishers a bad name!, 29 Mar. 2011
This review is from: The Greek Seaman (Kindle Edition)
I started to read this book after the author's rather unfortunate meltdown online.

I am afraid to say I gave it up as unreadable pretty quickly. Whilst entertaining in parts, the story has a rather child like feel to it. It also suffers from the most appalling grammar and, we have to assume, a lack of proof-reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but doesn't entirely match the hype, 10 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an entertaining and timely read.

It is pretty clear, as is the modern trend, that this book has been written and great speed and the co-authors have done a great job in producing something clear and concise with a strong narrative.

However the book does not provide the scandal and secrets it claims. Fraser Nelson, the respected editor of The Spectator, says on the cover "It's the most explosive political book for years2 and "Peter Watt knows where the bodies are buried and isn't afraid to tell us". Sadly neither a true.

An entertaining read, but the book contains almost nothing that wasn't in the newspapers at the time.
