Broken Wings - Book Reviews
BROKEN WINGS by JOHN CLIVE
Number 1 bestseller.
'Mr Clive has done this quite brilliantly, the locations are meticulously
portrayed; the dialogue is authentic period; the characters of an age bygone.
In the 416 page read the pace is unflagging, culminating in a chase through
the Wicklow Mountains that cries to be filmed...lovingly crafted by a born
storyteller -it is a splendid tale.'
Gordon Thomas, IRISH TIMES.
" If you ever doubted that fact is stranger than fiction, then a book out today proves it conclusively..the reality on which it is based is hard to beat.."
Newsnight, BBC TV
" The unknown history of the Second World War comes back to haunt us today..Churchill in turn, was secretly offering the Irish government, "...a council for the defence of Ireland out of which the unity of the island would probably in some form or other emerge after the war...'"
Martin Walker, THE GUARDIAN
"The story of the camp has gone untold until now. The man who has brought this to light is the author John Clive.."
Peter Gillman, THE SUNDAY TIMES
"Suspenseful, offbeat thriller with dramatic Irish setting...nervy scene switching maintains tension...simmering animosity between RAF and Luftwaffe internees in the same camp..crackling narrative pace and clever thumbnail characterisation..ironic dying fall after murderous climax on lonely Irish lake. One for the armchair and a stiff whiskey..."
John Kearney, SUNDAY INDEPENDENT
