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:

WWII...I think even if you aren't into history you are familiar with 'The Big One.' Especially Hitler and the Nazi party. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book. Historical fiction can veer in a direction that makes it muddy and unrealistic. Thankfully, that was not the case with The Bomb That Never Was.

It is easy to tell that J.R. Shaw put in some time to get the historical details in order, something I suppose you have to do when dealing with a war that is so well known. But, the way he was able to develop the story and characters to transport you into a world where the Nazis had the bomb, that was great.  An adventure that will leaving you thinking long after you read the last page, this is a book that I highly recommend.
