Target Churchill

Target Churchill

Soviet operatives have infiltrated British and American governments at the highest level. As Churchill prepares to launch the Cold War, Stalin unleashes his trained mole, an American Nazi who served in Hitler's SS. His mission: Assassinate Winston Churchill.
Churchill travels with a lone bodyguard, W.H. Thompson, a former British police officer who protected Churchill faithfully through the turbulent years of war. Thompson alone senses danger, but will his trained instincts and vigilance be enough to protect the former Prime Minister from a ruthless killer? In this gripping historical thriller, battles are fought not on the beaches, on the landing grounds, in the fields, on the streets or in the hills, but behind closed doors in the shadows of espionage. (Author description)

I found this book both enthralling and intriguing. The combination of historical novel and non-fiction history gives the reader a thrilling read. Written from multiple points of view the novel provides a complete picture of the characters involved on the UK/US side and also the Soviet side.

The character of the assassin was particularly compelling as was that of the young typist. Highly recommended for readers of both thrillers and historical novels.

Excellent read 5*
