By: Donna Munro
Aug. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- This is compelling reading about men who rarely talked about war but lived it, from the Cold War, WW2, the Rats of Tobruk and New Guinea. A suspense thriller above and beyond the call.

It took no great feat to occupy the time that spanned from the earliest years of the twentieth century to near its end. It took no great heroism to be mere witness to the cataclysmic events that changed the political and strategic climate that came to define the world we know today.

Martin Rellim, freedom loving and devoted to family and country, lived those years.
Martin was a brilliant mechanical and aeronautical engineer with a focused, disciplined, high work ethic. He was an innovator, an organiser and of equal importance a Mr Fix-It.

When the danger of Japanese expansion through 1930 to 1945 threatened Australia’s strategic position and physical existence, Martin’s expertise played a vital role in guaranteeing that the Australian Air Force triumphed in the Battle for Australia.

That expertise made Martin even more vulnerable after WWII as the Cold War strategies of the USSR and the West altered the map. Martin was a prize desperately coveted by the Soviets.

The determination of the Soviets to ‘acquire’ Martin is the thread that ties the story of one man’s amazing life together – a life that did more than bear witness.

JACK RELLIM, the author, was born in Sydney, Australia in 1943 during The Battle for Australia, World War Two and lived through the Cold War. He graduated from St Mary’s Cathedral Boys’ High School, Sydney, Australia with the Leaving Certificate, joining Her Majesty’s Customs Service in 1963. Jack served in the State of New South Wales at Port Jackson, Port Kembla, Port Botany, SKS Mascot Airport and Richmond Air Force Base.
Marriage, raising three children and an active sports involvement in tennis, surfing and handball ensured an energetic living environment.

He resigned from HM Customs in 1976 to become a successful property developer.
A love of history, a service record in investigative duties, and a passion for writing provided a solid foundation for him to launch his new career as a novelist specialising in Australian-orientated suspense thrillers.
