The Germans have a new secret weapon and the RAF must find a way to deal with it.
A young and near-genius German scientist has developed a formula for a chemical agent with the potential to wipe out whole cities in one sweep of an aircraft.
The staff at Bletchley Park and Downing Street need to know as much as possible about this Mem Tav, and how to eradicate it and the threat it poses.
David Landau, a first generation English - Polish Jew, now an officer in the RAF, is tasked with the job of uncovering everything he can about Mem Tav.
His investigation takes him all over the world in an exhaustingly short time, and he is helped sometimes by the most unlikely of allies.
Landau is as brave as he is talented, and is singled out in the latter part of the war to perform a vital role for British Intelligence.
There have been many tales of heroism centred around the events of the Second World War, some based on true events, some purely fictional, and some founded in legend. Whether fact or not, however, a good war story is one that holds the attention of the reader from the first to the last page, and this is one such story.
Fasten seat belts, check your life-jackets, and chocks away for an excellent read!
Praise for John Drake's Fletcher series
"Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas doesn't get much better than this. [... ] John Drake writes beautifully, and you'll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages. Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick O'Brian is totally justified." - Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author
John Drake trained as a biochemist to post-doctorate research level before realizing he was no good at science. His working career was in the television department of ICI until 1999 when he became a full-time writer. John's hobby is muzzle-loading shooting, and his interests are British history and British politics (as a spectator), plus newspapers, TV news, and current affairs. He is married with a son and two grandchildren.
