4.0 out of 5 stars All You Need Is Love, 19 Mar 2006
This review is from: Passport in Suspense (Hardcover)
West German submarine 'Seehund' is hijacked during N.A.T.O. manoeveres in the North Sea. Neo-Nazis want it for a daring operation; seeking out pockets of escaped war criminals in South America, they promise the elderly men free trips home under new identities if they will detonate three atomic devices at carefully positioned points on the sea bed. The subsequent chain reaction will then drastically affect the world's climate, turning both Britain and America into arctic wastelands.

Holidaying in the Bahamas, Dr.Jason Love witnesses at close range the shooting of a beautiful brunette in a speedboat. She had been mistaken for Israeli spy Shamara, assigned to investigate millionaire Paul V.Steyr. Blind and insane, Steyr is the mastermind behind the terrible neo-Nazi plot. Only Love, teamed with Shamara, can stop him...

The third Jason Love saga is a worthy addition to what initially promised to be the natural successor to Bond. Leasor's writing style is not unlike Fleming's, but with more humour and he's equally adept at making the incredible seem credible.

Two minor niggles; the climactic battle is a bit brief, and a stronger role was needed for McGillivray ( Love's boss ). Otherwise I recommend this book unreservedly. Its 'Thunderball' with swastikas!
