Praise for The Bomb That Never Was

 “Hitler has the bomb, and it's headed for the USA. This meticulously researched historical novel will have you asking, ‘What if?' This is an intelligent, fast-paced page-turner that will make you forget that you already know how it all turns out. Provocative, informative, and entertaining—I couldn't put it down.” —Joseph P. DeSario, author of Limbo and Sanctuary and coauthor of Crusade: Undercover Against the Mafia & KGB

“Authoritative and credible in its attention to detail, The Bomb That Never Was captures the spirit and temper of the WWII years and raises some deep philosophical questions about loyalty, treason, and commitment to country. A page-turner … tough to put down … a story well told.” —Robert L. Aaron, journalist and public relations executive

My Review

Is there any point in history that is discussed more than WWII? From movies to books, this is the hottest topic and rightfully so. With so many deaths and Hitler manning an army of people who would kill at his command, no matter how vile and is truly a fascinating and disturbing time.

I was drawn to this book because it takes the events and puts a new spin on them. What if Hitler had even more power than he did, having a bomb that was heading straight for the United States. What would change and how would things play out?

It is obvious that the author did quite a bit of research in this well thought out and gripping novel. Reading it I was transported back in time and it really made me think - what would have been different, or could have been different? A page turner from the get go, even though it is fiction it reads like fact.
