* Books Monthly Review says: 'Takes in all the elements of the successful spy novel, transports them back in time to the second world war and deposits them firmly in the hands of two men, one an unlikely hero in the form of Bert, who's in the Home Guard, and the other, Julian, who's in Churchill's elite SOE... Jon Gliddon's terrific spy yarn is equally as good as anything by Ian Fleming, and twice as good as any of John Le Carré's stories... I loved it.'
** My Cornwall Magazine says: '... The storey is pacey, with twists and turns in every chapter, and if you like your goodies to be good and your baddies bad, it will thrill you as it did me. You'll also learn something about the Arctic convoys and the communications of the time. There's even some romance.'
*** Best Thrillers review says: A globetrotting WW2 historical thriller that will have you up way past your bedtime. For the full review go to:
I lived in Cornwall, studied Mining Engineering in Cornwall and married a girl from Cornwall, so the county is in my blood. An early interest in writing poetry was put on the back-burner during 17 years working in Africa and then 23 years as a consultant. The idea for this book was born from a visit to Porthcurno Telegraph Museum. The beautiful location, the amazing history and the key strategic nature of the Telegraph Station in WWI and WWII were the catalyst for realising a long-held dream of writing my first novel.
My first novel
A sleepy Cornish seaside village becomes the most heavily guarded communications centre of WWII. A ruthless Nazi spy is on a mission to destroy it and change the direction of the war. Can Churchill’s special agent uncover the plot and intercept him? Can the Home Guard sergeant living there save the day? Break in Communication is a historical spy thriller, set around Porthcurno Telegraph Station.
