Mrs. Thatcher’s instructions were concise and clear. "Devote whatever resources are necessary to find this document."


 In 1982 a single page from an old ship's logbook holds the solution for Margaret Thatcher's desire to regain the Falklands without bloodshed.  After opening  the safety box of his deceased uncle, John Wingate encounters red-haired Vanessa Grieves while searching in the vaults of an Argentinean whaling company for a logbook and the secrets it holds.

Vanessa, seeking her own agenda, starts John looking for more that just an old ship when the Falklands Conflict is triggered by the junta’s interest in Leith Harbour.
From the streets of Buenos Aires to the abandoned whaling stations of South Georgia, John and Vanessa are pursued by Argentineans whose personal interests are endangered by the discovery of the logbook's secret.
Caught in Port Stanley during the closing days of the conflict, they cross paths with the Argentine Special Forces who are privy to the real reason the 1939 Battle of the River Plate was fought. 
 Falklands Deadline is now in print and no longer available on this site.  You can read the first four chapter HERE.
It can be downloaded as a PDF from Haakon Publishing or purchased in printed form from your favourite online bookstore

IThanks for all your support.   Ed Zaruk
