Thriller and Suspense Historical Fiction eBooks of the Month

LoveReading Expert Review of After Midnight

Ryan likes to take a piece of historical fact, mostly from World War I or II, and flesh out characters and emotions to create some very intriguing mysteries.  This one has a daughter tracing her missing RAF father in Northern Italy.  I like his mix of adventure, fact, fiction and romance.  Heâs good.

After Midnight Synopsis

In 1964, a young Australian girl, Linda Carr, is trying to track down the wreckage of the Liberator bomber in which her father died when it crashed in North Italy in 1944 during World War Two. She employs the help of Jack Kirby, a British Mosquito fighter pilot who was on operations in the area when her father died. He is now a motorcycle racer competing in the Isle of Man TT, but he is finding it hard to adjust to life during peacetime. He too was shot down during the war and spent some time helping the Italian partisans on the ground so he knows a great deal about Nazi brutality, betrayal, corruption and the settling of scores that was the partisan's life in Italy at the time. He also fell in love with Francesca, one of the partisan leaders, and he is keen to find out what happened to her and renew their affair. However, what they uncover is more dangerous and complex than either Linda or Jack could ever have imagined.
