Featured: Code Name: Iron Spear by Allan Hudson
A historical mystery from World War II: “The body was headless, it had no fingers. Identification would be difficult, if not impossible.”
Aircraftsman 2nd Class Jeremy Carter is the rawest recruit at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Scoudouc – a training center for British, New Zealand and Australian pilots during World War 2. Ordered to clean debris from the back fields, he makes a startling discovery.
Reporting the incident directly to his superiors, he’s warned to keep the finding to a small and select group of airmen of which the base’s commanding officer is one.
There are too many secrets at RCAF Scoudouc for this to go public.
Warrant Officer Stefan Kravchenko of the Royal Canadian Air Force is with the Service Police and his reputation is on the rise.
Stationed at RCAF Saint John, he works out of the Milledgeville Airport. Thinking his day is finished, he’s called to the office of his commanding officer. He receives orders to proceed to RCAF Station Scoudouc, 150 miles away. Immediately.
He’s not given a reason why, only that it is orders.
A German spy was sent to New Brunswick by the Abwehr before the war broke out. German intelligence receives rumours of the existence of a highly classified device leaving England, destined for the shores of Atlantic Canada.
Iron Spear is activated and sent to Scoudouc.
In civilian life, he was a butcher.

Review by HB:
“The body was headless, it had no fingers. Identification would be difficult, if not impossible.”
1941 – New Brunswick is a small place but the air force training base in Scoudouc has a secret the Nazis will kill to obtain.
When a body turns up Warrant Officer Stefan Kravchenko of the Royal Canadian Air Force Service Police must find the killer.
Wonderful historical WWII novel with action and mystery, I really enjoyed this latest offering from prolific writer Allan Hudson.
