“Pinched between Nazis in Italy and in North Africa, Malta -- a speck of a British Colony -- is taking a nightly pounding. The function of the 'information' officer is to keep up the morale of the troops and the local populace. But how can he when there is a murderer on the loose who might also be a spy? If that not enough, he is in love with two married women, one Maltese and one British--a delicate balancing act in such a hermetic environment.”
-- Darwin Ellis, Books on the Common, Ridgefield, CT


Description

Summer 1942. A small, windswept island in the Mediterranean has become the most bombed patch of earth on the planet, as a fiercely independent people withstand relentless siege. Max Chadwick is the British officer charged with manipulating the news on Malta to bolster the fragile esprit de corps. Then Max learns of the murder of a young island woman, along with evidence that it was committed by a British officer.
