“McCutchan’s tales of the adventures of Commander Shaw are rivalling those of Fleming. WARMASTER will raise his reputation another notch.” – New York Times Book Review
The dynamic Commander Shaw is on the trail of an international organization that has outwitted both the British and U.S. Intelligence Services. Warmaster, "the ultimate deterrent"; a secret weapon developed by the US, has fallen into the hands of a pan-Nazi nationalist group, which threatens to destroy the newly restored peace between the major powers.
Shaw’s mission: to prevent another world war.
However, time works against him in his struggle to prevent the group’s world conquest when he becomes embroiled in solving the mysterious and brutal death of a young girl.
Warmaster is a classic adventure, taking the reader from England to the U.S. to South America, through a fantastic underground installation, and a thrilling helicopter escape in a race against the clock. Action-packed until the dramatic end.
