Champions 17 of 28



It is 1944, and Lady Emily’s insurgency is growing. Though the vast majority of the genetically-enhanced Champions in the British Empire and the United States remain loyal, some have heeded her call to overturn civilization, and to make themselves masters of two planets. The forces of Jimmystown must struggle to prevent open rebellion.

When two renegades are captured by HMS Colette in the mid-Atlantic, only Lady Elspeth Cornish is available to assist the Royal Navy cruiser. While Lieutenant Nancy Wake and Colonel Brian Horrocks join a newly-refitted HMCS Sackville and race to the scene, Elspeth must help Colette’s crew contain a pair of powerful, proven murderers, and defeat whatever plan they possess. Who can survive in the fray?

Again, a merge of journalistic strengths — rapid writing to deadlines, and creativity.”
