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

Are we ever safe? Does history repeat itself? After reading this book I sat and pondered the past and what the future might be. After thinking of how bad WWII was, this book put a new spin on things and gave a glimpse into what it could have been if things would have been slightly different.

I can only imagine that writing historical fiction must take an unbelievable amount of work. Not only are you spinning a tale, you have to incorporate the time period and make sure that it is accurate. This book reads like non-fiction, and that is a testament to how skilled this author is in not only his prose, but in the content of the tale. A fascinating read.
