Jacob De La Croix (Jake) despite his youth was battle hardened;
courageously captaining a British Motor Torpedo Boat in World War
fearing each day was his last.
Two years later, war-weary Jake, mentally scarred from the fray and
death of his wife in a bombing raid, gradually starts to rebuild his
his post-war desk job in the family insurance firm in Northern
until a shock visit from an MI6 operative turns his focus back to
and a shadowy international cabal.
Conspiracy, murder and the love of a beautiful woman combine in a
admixture of excitement and paranoia, drawing on Jake’s entire
prowess, as he navigates a minefield of mistrust, distinguishing
friends, enemies and the sinister controlling hand of The Illuminati.
The story bounces between Wilhelmshaven in Germany and Newcastle,
England, climaxing in a deadly David and Goliath battle to
safeguard ancient artefacts and his friends against the depredations
of a dark brotherhood.
Romance; intrigue; adventure; good versus evil, this story has it
masterful plot from the consummate storyteller, Richardson.
Amidst the ominous background of the desire for global power by a
organisation, The Illuminati, Richardson still manages to inject
the form of two loveable Geordie characters. Characterisation and
are his forte … A must read.
