Secret Weapon

(1942)
(A book in the Papa Pontivy series)
A novel by

 
 
A British scientist, Drummond, produces a new bomb during the Second World War and, fearing intervention from meddling politicians, decides to direct its use himself. Accompanied by spy-catchers Bernard and the famous Papa Pontivy, Drummond launches a series of tests to show the bomb's destructive potential, which are met by mass panic in the German streets and sobering questions of the morality behind weapons of mass-murder.

With colourful portraits of Hitler and Mussolini who must brace themselves for what seems like inevitable defeat against this new English weapon, Newman's thriller is an alternative fantasy of the war that must have seemed only a tenuous possibility when the story was written in 1942 - the swift defeat of the Nazis and a British "new order" in Europe.
