The Summer of '39 by David Lowther
As the Second World War approaches, crusading journalist Roger Martin uncovers a conspiracy between the IRA and the German Secret Service. The deeper he digs, the more sinister the plot becomes with a major bombing campaign threatening both Great Britain’s security and preparedness for war. Enlisting help from a couple of artful dodger type adolescents from London’s East End, the hero finds that the Gestapo is attempting to infiltrate the UK Foreign Office though blackmail.
The action switches from London to Berlin where the blackmail plot is hatched. Lives and freedom are at stake as the tale reaches its thrilling climaxes on the roads of western Germany and the quayside at Harwich. The Summer of ’39 is a story of blackmail, espionage, tragedy, deceit, terrorism, courage, determination and blossoming young love.
