The Information Officer
It is the summer of 1942 and the island of Malta is under intense German
bombardment. For the Germans, the island is vital as a strategic and
military supply port. As the British and Maltese courageously defend
the island, a British officer might be killing local dance hostesses.
Major Max Chadwick, the information officer in charge of controlling the
island’s news, secretly begins to investigate the murders. As the
investigation proceeds, Chadwick faces a dilemma. Should he conceal the
news of these killings that have the potential of undermining Maltese
support in the Allied war effort or let this sadistic serial killer
continue? This is a thoroughly researched account of Malta under siege
and a suspenseful spy thriller.
