In wartime Egypt, can a British submarine commander trust his Italian lover? 1941: The teeming city of Alexandria is almost under siege by the Afrika Korps. A vortex of ancient loves and murderous intrigues, Alexandria is the Royal Navy's major Eastern Mediterranean base. But Italian frogmen and their so-called 'human torpedoes' are posing a lethal threat to British warships. Hardly the time or place for a British submarine commander to fall in love; especially as the girl in question is half-Italian, and Alexandria's large Italian population is only too eager to welcome Rommel and his troops into town. Interspersed with scenes of naval action described in gripping and authentic detail -- and seen through Italian as much as British eyes -- the human drama unfolds, its actors ever aware of the mounting threat of a German breakthrough. A stunning naval thriller sure to enthral readers of Philip McCutchan and Jeff Edwards, Love For An Enemy shows Alexander Fullerton at the peak of his form. The novel's astonishing sense of reality derives from the writer's own experience: he himself was a submariner and spent several months of this period in and around Alexandria. Praise for Alexander Fullerton 'The most meticulously researched war novels that I have ever read' Len Deighton 'The scene of battle is quite overpowering ' Sunday Times ' His action passages are superb, and he never puts a period foot wrong' Observer ' What le Carr©♭ is to the spy genre, Fullerton is to naval warfare ' South Wales Echo ' The finest of modern writers about naval warfare ' Manchester Evening News.
