The year is 1944.
After five hard-fought years, the Allies are close to victory.
But Germany still has one last secret – and one that could still turn the war in its favour.
Travelling on a U-boat to Japan is a highly explosive uranium bomb, the first of its kind.
But why are the Nazis giving such a precious weapon to the Japanese?
And where might the Japanese use it?
In London, Special Operations Executive Captain Maddox is given a simple task.
Stop the U-boat at all costs.
A British, French and American team is assembled for the mission.
They will strike a mysterious island controlled by the Nazis where the U-boat is scheduled to stop.
But nothing about this job is what it appears to be.
The British, the French and the Americans all have their own agendas — and so do the Germans.
And none of them involve Captain Maddox making it to the end of the war alive.
‘Blood Red Sea’ is the second in a series of full-throttle World War Two thrillers featuring Captain Maddox that combine meticulous research with gripping story-telling to create memorable tales of action and adventure.
It is perfect for fans of Jack Higgins and Alistair MacLean.
