August 1917. Britain is mired in bloody stalemate at Passchendaele and the prime minister is looking for someone to blame. Soldier spy Sandy Innes is seconded to Haigs headquarters officially to train a new espionage group called The Suicide Club, unofficially to spy on the field marshals staff. Innes soon discovers few at HQ trust the top secret information being fed to Haig by his intelligence chief, and as he digs deeper he begins to suspect treachery. The stakes could not be higher the fate of hundreds of thousands of British soldiers. In a tense race against time and against the background of political machinations, Innes must survive membership of The Suicide Club, and then risk all by going back behind enemy lines to uncover the truth.
I fancied something different to read and this was the perfect book! I awarded The Suicide Club four stars as I have to admit I did not understand some of the words in the story, but that did not affect the story line for me. It is a well written brilliant story! I did not find it an easy read but I did devour it and was hooked throughout, I love a good historical fiction now and again. I would recommend this to you all, I understand it may not be everyone’s cup of tea but this is the perfect story for readers who enjoy a brilliant historical fiction, war and spy thriller. It is one of those stories that will transport you into a different world from the comfort of your couch. Enjoy, I did.
