Sense of winning under difficult conditions and a loving life.

Malcolm Lloyd Dubber revisits the story of naval officer, lieutenant commander Ewan Jones and nurse Hazel Almonde in his latest publication titled “Signal from Malta” (published by AuthorHouse UK).

A sequel to “Return to Malta,” this book finds the romance between Ewan and Hazel caught up in the closing days of World War II. Now a married couple, Ewan and Hazel are involved in naval intelligence operations to capture for escaping Nazis. Hazel is assigned to lead a party of nurses to Italy, while Ewan patrols the Albanian coast in search of a German SS Panzer division. Ironically, the Nazis have enlisted help from the Russian secret police (NKVD) in exchange for weapons communist insurgents in the Balkans. A vengeful SS Officer abducts the group of nurses and what follows is a dramatic rescue.

“Signal from Malta” will appeal to those who are interested in a WWII romance and drama based in a Mediterranean setting. It will also draw to both old and young generation who have not yet experienced some of the more obscure episodes of the Second World War.

When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, Dubber says, “Sense of winning under difficult conditions and a loving life.”
