  • Great Captivating Read!

    “Winston Churchill’s Renegade Spy” is a thrilling adventure set during World War II, centered around Jonas Shaw--a former bodyguard to British prime minister Winston Churchill. The story begins with Jonas on vacation after being let go as bodyguard, when he is later found by someone that works for Churchill, asking for a specific job: find any suspicious information that may lead to the identity of the suspected spy infiltrating the British government. If they find the suspected spy, then they can stop Herr Hitler from overtaking Great Britain like they did with France. Jonas Shaw is determined and loyal to his duty. It is expressed in the beginning that he trusted his instincts when holding a job as a cop in a town in America, despite others discouraging him--he acted on what he believed was the right thing to do and saved some American senators from the Mafia. Jonas remains loyal to what he believes to be the truth and the best for all, afterall he is motivated to accept the job after he reflects on who would be affected were the British government to be infiltrated by Nazi Germany. This novel has a bit of everything--action, mystery and intrigue, deceit, adventure and a lot of history. World War II is always an interesting topic to read about, despite its atrocities, and reading this fictional story is no different. The historical political element added on to this thriller spy story makes it all the more interesting! It makes you wonder what happens behind closed doors. I cannot recommend this book enough! I would come home from work and try to read as much as I could whenever I got the chance! Besides Jonas we meet a number of interesting characters, like Nigel Adams, Cyril Cavendish, Millie Kent and many more. Cavendish, the man who initially reaches out to Jonas to help in identifying the spy, was quite the interesting character to see grow throughout the progression of the novel! Cavendish was able to showcase different sides to his personality that added more intrigue to the plot--he definitely had certain pieces of information that drove the plot along. The dynamic between Cavendish and Jonas was also intriguing as we were able to see it shift as more was revealed to the reader. This story was full of action through the very end, making for an interesting read. The writing style definitely helped the plot along, it was so easy to follow along that I found myself just turning page after page.

    Reviewed by Grant Leishman for Readers' Favorite Winston Churchill’s Renegade Spy by Steve Haberman is a good, old-fashioned spy novel set in the darkest days of WWII, as Britain stood alone, not quite ready to face the might of the Nazi war machine currently massing on the French coast and threatening to invade England at any time. Jonas Shaw had been a New York City detective when he happened upon a fat man who had been knocked over by a car on the street. After coming to the man’s assistance, he realized it was none other than Winston Churchill, himself. Not yet Prime Minister, Churchill offered the young detective a role as his bodyguard back in Britain. After total humiliation and scorn at the hands of the merciless British press, as an American guarding the now British Prime Minister, Jonas is summarily dismissed from his post and is visiting neutral Switzerland prior to returning to the States and his childhood sweetheart awaiting him there. When not one but two emissaries arrive from his former boss asking for his help to uncover a German spy deep inside the highest level of the British government, Shaw is ambivalent, to say the least, after his treatment by the British thus far. Quickly realizing he really has little option but to help, he is soon caught up in a dangerous game of espionage that will pit him against Intelligence agencies all over Europe and the dreaded Nazi Gestapo and SS as he endeavors to make his way back to Britain through occupied Europe. Winston Churchill’s Renegade Spy is an exciting, thrilling journey through the world of international espionage. Author Steve Haberman has created a protagonist in Jonas Shaw who is believable and although relatively young and impressionable has a strong moral compass and the ability to see the need to work for Britain to ensure the freedom of the world, despite his own government’s unwillingness to get involved in what, at that time, was the “European Conflict”. It does us no harm at all, in these troubled times, to remind ourselves just what a horrible evil fascism and Nazism really were just 80 years ago. The author does a tremendous job of highlighting the pain, suffering, and indomitable courage of the British, but especially the Londoners at that dark time in 1940 when the only thing that seemed to stand between Hitler and total European domination was a “fat, drunken, old fool” whose sole focus was on convincing his countrymen that, no matter what happened, they would prevail against the evil dictator. The author’s style is easy and flowing, dragging the reader along in a series of exciting adventures as Jonas Shaw seeks to deliver the vital information to Churchill in person. A few red herrings and bumps in the road add to the general acceptance that this is an espionage thriller of high skill and readability. All in all, a satisfying glimpse of a terrified, subjugated world that we would be foolish to forget. There are lessons to be learned here. I can highly recommend this read.

  • S Haberman’s Winston Churchill’s Renegade Spy

    A stunning, explosive, electrifying, fast paced adventure with a riveting storyline!!! Who can you trust?? Come along with Jonas Shaw, ex-New York City detective and fired bodyguard of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill as his adventure begins in the summer of 1940. He is in Zurich,Switzerland for the purpose of picking up a small family inheritance. He finds himself requested to uncover a suspected spy infiltrating the British government. This action packed thriller will take him to France, Spain and Portugal. The author has you travel right along with the character. You see what he sees. You feel what he feels, uncover secrets when he does & you dare to rush into situations with him even when you are not sure who to believe or trust. This complex plot with subplots weaved into the main plot keeps the reader on their toes as not to miss a clue but be able to travel along with a cast of well defined, well fleshed, in-depth and intricate characters into a world of dangerous espionage. Jonas faces dangerous, suspenseful, mysterious situations full of intrigue that is heightened to mountainous proportions with drama plus plenty of thrills, chills, twists and turns. The tension was very thick and well sustained. This story grips you from the beginning. It intensifies until the final word. I volunteered to read Winston Churchill's Renegade Spy. Thanks to the Review Crew for the opportunity. My opinion is voluntary and my own. A Highly Recommended Read!!
