Book Reviews: Colour of Lemon - Surrender 1940 by Geoff Howe
|5 stars, 2 reviews|
Geoff Howeabout this book: Colour of Lemon is set in the dark days of 1940 when Britain stood alone against the might of the German Army. A peace treaty is on its way to London for signature by a senior Cabinet Minister and approval by the House of Commons. Desperate to stop it, Prime Minister Winston Churchill enlists the help of a notorious former Blackshirt and East London gangster to get hold of the treaty, by any means foul or fair, and save Britain from surrender. It was the last roll of the dice.
Is this a true story, the very last secret of World War Two? For decades, all the evidence about this conspiracy has been locked away in a secret government building near London. Until now.
Judge for yourself. How close was Britain to surrendering in 1940 to the Nazis. According to Sowerbutt, the East London gangster, the peace treaty got as far as Waterloo Station, a stone's throw away from Whitehall and signature. Read on.

Couldn't Put DownWhat a find. This book reeks of realism. You are back in the Blitz with the bombs falling and a tough East end gangster taking you on a gripping read from the first page. I couldn't put this one down. Love the characters as wicked as they are.
Where does the author get his information from? There'd be a few people uncomfortable about all these revelations. You never know what's coming on the next page.
For John Le Carre fansA friend of mine recommended me this book because he knows I love spy/ww2 novels. It didn't disappoint. It's an epic bullet-train of a thriller with really gritty well-rounded characters that really jump off the page. And I loved all the proper Cockney slang. Refreshing to find such an intelligent read on Kindle!
