The Caribbean island of Martinique is vital to the outcome of the Second World War in 1941. In the vaults of Fort Desaix are held France’s gold reserves, and France’s Vichy Government and its Nazi masters want the gold repatriated to fund their war. Although President Franklin D Roosevelt considers sending in troops, America has no wish to get involved in the ‘war in Europe’. But behind the scenes, factions in the US government enlist the Mafia’s assistance to rescue the gold. British Intelligence persuades American Ben Peters to act as a ‘neutral observer’ on the island. And, as the action swings from London to Martinique to Manhattan, he encounters ruthless Nazis, Mafia assassins, and two beautiful women, who will do anything to achieve their goals. Germany’s U-boats are dominating the Atlantic, and if they get the gold Britain and ultimately America will be doomed. In this climate of danger and double-cross, Ben cannot trust anyone. And when he discovers the Nazis’ horrifying plans to wreak havoc on the United States he faces a battle against the odds to save thousands of lives.

    David Lowther

    Paradise Gold is an entertaining enough book, completely implausible of course as books totally based on fictitious events often are, but set in an unusual location, the Caribbean island of Martinique. Ben Peters, reluctant hero, is back, this time trying to keep an eye on French gold kept in the Caribbean for the duration of the war. The Nazis are there also, trying to do the same but, curiously, not much sign of the Vichy police. The story is exciting enough with a smattering of gorgeous women, Paradise Gold is an entertaining enough book, completely implausible of course as books totally based on fictitious events often are, but set in an unusual location, the Caribbean island of Martinique.

The story is exciting enough with a smattering of gorgeous women, including a femme fatale, and some particularly sadistic gestapo people. It was enjoyable enough. David Lowther. Author of The Blue Pencil, Liberating Belsen, Two Families at War and The Summer of '39, all published by Sacristy Press.

    Exciting read As World war two novels go, this novel explores the intrigue of spying and the depth of Nazi spies in the United States. The cruelty of the Nazis can never be forgotten, especially today when their philosophy is once again rearing it's ugly head,

The French Resistance wants to use it to fund their efforts. FDR has his eyes on it. Even the Mafia wants their share. Author Vic Robbie does a wonderful job of weaving all the threads of plot into a cohesive fabric of intrigue and suspense.

    An exciting and suspenseful second book in the Ben Peters WWII spy series. The first book In Pursuit Of Platinum rattled along at a great pace and Paradise Gold maintains a fast pace with a lot of twists and turns.

    Just ok... The story was too long and not very exciting or entertaining. The author did a good job describing Martinique but about 2/3 of the way through seemed to become bored. The ending was inconclusive and unrealistic.
