Sarah Broadhurst's view...

May 2007 Debut of the Month.

A dual-time World War II/present day tale of a German plot, American interception and a very strange cover-up. It is inventive and different with good accounts of the tensions on both sides. An above-average dramatic story well worth investing in. Readers of historical adventures may be interested to know that the author is the younger brother of Simon Scarrow, famed for his Roman legion series.

Similar this month: None but try Jeffrey Lee.
Comparison: Robert Harris, Robert Littell, Henry Porter.

If you like Alex Scarrow you might also like to read books by Clare Clark, Rory Clements and James Twining.

Synopsis

A Thousand Suns by Alex Scarrow

It's early April of 1945. The Nazi regime is being slowly throttled by the oncoming Russian and Allied armies and Hitler rages uselessly in his Berlin bunker. But the high command have one more throw of the dice to make...

An audacious plan is hatched to save the Fatherland and beat off the oncoming apocalypse. All it will take is a hodge-podge squadron of escort fighters, a captured US bomber and one suicidally brave pilot to fly it over the Atlantic into the beating heart of America.

Half a century later, a rusting plane is discovered, sunk with its crew, off the coast of New York - a relic from a bygone age. Chris Roland, a brilliant young photographer, is sent to take photos of this time capsule. But it is only when he discovers that the fragments of Nazi uniforms on the decaying corpses that he realises that he has come across a secret so terrible that even fifty years later it could still kill him...

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
