Historical Fiction
Desperate Measures Recieves 5 Hearts from Heartland Review

Desperate Measures is a fine piece of speculative fiction/war story based on the premise of what if Hitler had won the Battle for Britain? This book is the second of a three part series, the first entitled Desperate Times, 0-59517-855-3 from iUniverse Publishing. Weíve used the authorís website because of the difference in publishers. The action takes place primarily in England, with forays into FDRís office in America. Churchill has had to flee England, along with most of his ministers. The King is locked up in the Tower of London, and the Nazis occupy the British Isles. A group of nuclear scientists (several of them German Jews) must be spirited out of country if The Nazis are to be overcome. All the while, there are several major characters interacting and with their own agendas to help and hinder that effort.

This book is very well crafted, reading like an early W.E.B. Griffith Brotherhood of War nove,l but on a smaller scale. The authorís characters are complex in a pleasing way, showing very human attributes and weaknesses. The setting is well done, and the dialogue is perfect. The pace pulls the readers along, but without jerking them. In all, this was a very pleasant read. We rated the book five hearts.
