New Book Review: Wake of the Bloody Angel by Alex Bledsoe

The latest book review from Ian Shone has now been posted in our reviews section. If you like a fair bit of hokum and pirates then Wake of the Bloody Angel by Alex Bledsoe might well be your cup of tea!

If you guiltily enjoy the likes of Ian Fleming or Robert E. Howard, then there is a good chance you’ll enjoy Wake of the Bloody Angel, and it’s the ideal book to give yourself a break if you have just finished reading something dry and heavy. Enjoyable nonsense, and nicely done.

From the Publisher’s Website:

In this sequel to Those Who Dare, U.S.Major John Randal, Commander of Strategic Raiding Forces is back, leading a crew of British Commandos, Royal Marines and Royal Navy raiders on bigger and bolder missions to foil Hitler’s Third Reich.

Off the Gold Coast colony in Africa, the Germans are operating a naval intelligence ring that gathers information about British convoys in the southern sea-lane. Couriers carry the data to nearby Rio Bonita, a tiny Portuguese island protectorate, whence they are broadcast to Nazi U-boats and surface raiders from a clandestine radio station onboard one of three interned enemy ships. As a result, British convoys vital to the war effort are ravaged.

Major Randal and the Raiding Forces’s mission is to invade neutral Rio Bonita and spirit away the three ships. Failure means either imprisonment or hanging for piracy—and that Portugal will declare war on its oldest ally.

Peopling Dead Eagles are colorful characters new and old.  There is Wild West showman Captain “Geronimo Joe” McKoy, the stunning  Special Operations Executive operator Lady Jane Seaborn, who adopts the Raiding Forces as her own pet project; and Lady Jane’s bombshell of a driver, Pamala Plum-Martin. Even Commander Ian Fleming puts in an appearance, submitting a plan for “Operation Ruthless”, the goal of which is to board a Luftwaffe bomber and crash it into the English Channel in order to capture an Enigma  coding device from a Nazi air-sea rescue craft.

This action packed adventure story features Lovat Scout Snipers, the take down of the Vichy French fleet in English ports, daring Commando raids, an epic sea battle, beautiful spies and culminates in a deadly shoot-out in a crowed bar in Occupied France.
