Winter of Spies- A womans view?
on 17 January 2006
I have just read David Newham's WINTER OF SPIES and have to rate it as one of the best wartime thrillers I have read for a long time.The plot held me engrossed for several hours - its a big book!
As I am quite hard to please, I found the characters very believable and it took me to the Lincolnshire Fens,quite literally,because it led to a visit and a magical mystery tour following the places in the book.
Although it may be a novel, it really stirs the imagination, bringing to life what it must have been like during the war years, and the young men who had a living part to play.
I should like to advise Sir David Frost not to re-make the Dambusters, ask David Newham to write a screenplay for Winter of Spies. Could be a blockbuster!!
