Science Fiction Alternate History
In this crackling alternate history thriller set in the
years after World War II—the riveting sequel to The Darkest
Hour—London detective John Rossett joins forces with his
Nazi boss to save the commander’s kidnapped daughter as the
Germans race to make the first atomic bomb.
With the end of the war, the victorious Germans now occupy a
defeated Great Britain. In London, decorated detective John
Henry Rossett, now reporting to the Nazi victors, lies in a
hospital bed recovering from gunshot wounds. Desperate to
avoid blame over the events that led to the shooting, his
boss, Ernst Koehler, covers up the incident. But when
Koehler’s wife and daughter are kidnapped by American spies,
the terrified German turns to the only man he trusts to help
him—a shrewd cop who will do whatever is necessary to get
the job done: John Rossett.
Surviving his brush with death, Rossett agrees to save his
friend’s daughter. But in a chaotic new world ruled by
treachery and betrayal, doing the right thing can get a man
killed. Caught between the Nazi SS, the violent British
resistance, and Americans with very uncertain loyalties,
Rossett must secretly make his way out of London and find
Ruth Hartz, a Jewish scientist working in Cambridge. Spared
from death because of her intellect and expertise, she is
forced to work on developing the atom bomb for Germany.
Though she knows it could end any hope of freedom in Europe
and maybe even the world, Ruth must finish the project—if
she, too, wants to survive.

Re: The British Lion
Although I'm grateful that the War didn't turn out this way,
I'm still looking forward to reading this book!! Just
reading the synopsis was like reading a page-turner, and I
wish I had your book in front of me to start it this week!!
Because my Father fought in WWII, and was almost killed, this
type of book holds a little bit more sentimentality for me as
well. I'm so glad that you took the time to come here, and
let us know about your latest book!! It's on my TBR list,
and I'll be sure to have it on my Fall/Winter reading list!!
Congratulations on what I'm sure is a book that will do very

Peggy! Thank you so much for your comment, and forgive me
for not replying sooner.
I really hope you enjoy the book, and on behalf of those
of us who are free, a huge thank you to your Father for
his bravery in standing up in WW2.
