The Turn of the Tide

Please join me in congratulating Martin Lake on the publication of his newest historical novel, The Turn of the Tide! I had the pleasure of designing the cover. Here's the book description:

It is 1943. The world is in the grip of war.

Miriam Rosenfeld has returned to Britain from the heart of Nazi Germany, where she found proof of the existence of the V2 rockets. But she also discovered something far worse, an experience which leaves her traumatised and adrift.

Yet her skills are much in demand, and reluctantly she returns to work for Army Intelligence, promising her brother, Oscar, that she will never leave him again. Yet the war is relentless, and she is ordered to go to the Cairo Conference as a translator. While there, she discovers that a British ambassador is the source of top-secret leaks.

On her return to Britain, the establishment closes ranks in defense of the ambassador, and her findings are dismissed. Even worse, suspicion alights on her, as a young Austrian Jew who is deemed far too intelligent and troublesome. She proves the truth of this and eventually saves herself from the direst punishment.

The Allies are jubilant when Europe is invaded, but this joy turns to despair when Nazi vengeance rockets are unleashed on London. But despite this and other setbacks, the allies push on.

In the closing days of the war, Miriam is ordered to go to Germany to identify a young man who claims to be Wernher von Braun, the brains behind the Nazi rockets. While there she discovers a death camp. It is a place of horrors, but it holds a revelation which eases her heart.

The Turn of the Tide is available in ebook format and will soon be available in print editions on Amazon and Amazon UK. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Martin's website for information on all of his books and his interviews with fellow historical fiction writers.
