Macaulay's efforts to debunk the myths of heroism that continue to obscure the reality of life in occupied France are honourable. But the novel would be more successful if Iain were less wet and egotistical.

The Warning Bell book. I have never read any of Tom Macaulay's books and don't know if he has written others but I enjoyed this read and loved the way he writes. The plot is plausible and the characters realistic even if the wife is altogether too good to be true. I love the intertwining of history with mystery and especially when it revolves around WWII.

Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, FRS FRSE PC (25 October 1800 – 28 December 1859) was a British historian and Whig politician.

France, 1944. Pilot Officer George Madoc is tasked with a covert mission to the occupied coast of Brittany: under cover of night, he must ferry a French secret agent - an assassin - across the St Cyriac Shoals. It is an encounter that changes him for ever. Over sixty years later, his son Iain is offered the key to the mystery which has forced a wedge between him and his father. George`s wartime launch has been found and the past is coming back to life. Iain travels to France, desperate to discover the truth, but the village of St Cyriac will not give up its secrets easily. For some, the past is still dangerously alive, and Iain may pay the price of uncovering it...

Buying this book was really a lucky break for me since I had never read anything about or by Tom Macaulay before and knew absolutely nothing about him. This book impressed me no end and I had a huge problem, reminding myself constantly that this was a magnificent work of fiction It was so believable that I willed it to be 100% true!

Set mostly in a small fishing village, St Cyriac, on the coast of Brittany, this is the tale of a man in search of the tragic WWII events that led to his life-long rejection by his Father.

George Madoc was the skipper of an RAF rescue craft. Amongst her other duties, the sleek, fast, three-engined boat, known simply as 6548, was tasked with ferrying secret agents across the English Channel. George feels very uneasy about one of these agents, an assassin, code-named Lucien, but we don't find out why until much later.

Sixty years later, George's son, Iain, takes early retirement and looks forward to a new life with his wife, also leaving her work behind for a quiet life, and his daughter.

Sadly, Iain's mother dies very early in his retirement, but she bequeaths a small case containing some vital clues regarding the distance that George has maintained for all those years between himself and his puzzled son.

Iain has a compelling need to get to the bottom of the mystery, and sets off on an almost obsessive quest.

Despite all the barriers that the survivors of those times and their descendants place in Iain's way, the horrible truth is slowly revealed as one turns the pages.

The reader is swept along by the merciless currents of this story, and I could not put the book down for a moment as I read the last hundred-and-something pages. So, be warned! Allow yourself sufficient time to read the final chapters, or you may burn the supper or forget to pick up the kids from school, or somesuch!

An enthralling read.

I was absorbed by this book from the first page. A fine piece of thoughtful writing. Taut, tense with emotional depth. It packed some dramatic punches that made me almost gasp out loud with surprise. Couldn't wait to find out what happened, yet dismayed to reach the end and have to emerge and return to the real world. Will be a hard act to follow when I pick my next read.The Warning Bell
