Praise for The Bomb That Never Was

 “Hitler has the bomb, and it's headed for the USA. This meticulously researched historical novel will have you asking, ‘What if?' This is an intelligent, fast-paced page-turner that will make you forget that you already know how it all turns out. Provocative, informative, and entertaining—I couldn't put it down.” —Joseph P. DeSario, author of Limbo and Sanctuary and coauthor of Crusade: Undercover Against the Mafia & KGB

“Authoritative and credible in its attention to detail, The Bomb That Never Was captures the spirit and temper of the WWII years and raises some deep philosophical questions about loyalty, treason, and commitment to country. A page-turner … tough to put down … a story well told.” —Robert L. Aaron, journalist and public relations executive

The Review:

History can be a tough subject to write about, but to take on historical fiction, that is a whole other beast to deal with. And, when you try and tackle the Nazis and WWII, I imagine it can seem like a daunting task to make sure you capture some of the true historic feel in your story. And that is exactly what J.R. Shaw was able to do.

While reading The Bomb That Never Was you immerse yourself into a different war, one where Hitler has the bomb and the US is his target. A fast paced novel that will grip you from the first page, I applaud the authors ability to keep you questioning how it will turn out.

Historians and readers alike will love a book that has you ask what if?
