In 1979, Admiral of the Fleet Lord Mountbatten of Burma was assassinated by the IRA when his yacht was blown up, killing several other members of his family. This charismatic sailor who was Prince Phillip's uncle and related to most of the royal families of Europe, was admired by the officers and crew of the ships that he captained. It seemed inconceivable that either of these groups would sit back and allow this outrage to go unanswered. In The Godson, a novel that combines truth and fiction, two parties mobilize and travel to Southern Ireland in search of the killers. They join forces, and with the Admiral's godson in the lead, wreak terrible vengeance on those they exposed for their part in the murders. Lieutenant Harry MacTaggart RN and ex-Chief Stoker Ginger Smith fight a gallant rear guard action against these traitors, and only overcome by showing true naval grit. The Godson is an unforgettable and An Explosive Novel. Author Bio: Originally from Chelmsford, Essex, England, Ben Wilson now lives in Edmond, Oklahoma. He wrote The Godson to pay tribute to "a great man who was killed in a senseless threat to the security of the Royal family." Wilson was the project manager for the construction of the Shell Oil floating terminal off the coast of Anglesey that is blown up in this novel. He is now writing his next book, The Cold War.
