Hunting Aquila

By James Hume

Crime & mystery, Historical fiction, Thriller | Paperback, eBook


During World War 2, Churchill stumbles across a leak of vital information from the UK to the enemy. He calls in Commander Jonathan Porritt to catch the mole. Porritt has no leads until Jane, a young British translator, unwittingly gets caught up with a German spy trying to flee the country. Can Porritt use his Special Branch teams in Glasgow, Yorkshire, London and Belfast to rescue Jane and smash the undercover spy organisation before Churchill’s invasion plans get leaked? This deftly plotted, action-packed thriller is full of twists and turns. Carefully weaving fact and fiction, it provides powerful and intriguing lessons that still apply in today’s changing world.



James is a former engineer who has always had a love of writing and a passion for reading thrillers that unravel a complex puzzle. Now he has finally put the two together. His first book, Hunting Aquila, has now been published, and he has a second, Killing the Captain, at an advanced stage. The themes behind these thrillers pull together some of James’ other interests, particularly 1940s and 50s history, world news, and travel. They explore how historical events and human situations provide allegories of Good overcoming Evil and freeing the Innocent in a way that can still apply in today’s changing world. Hunting Aquila draws strongly on these themes. It is the first in a planned series of thrillers featuring protagonists from UK Special Branch facing complex situations and resolving them using intelligent analysis and top class resources.
