Slaughter in the Desert: The Declassified History of World War II (The Adventures of Kat’s COMMANDOS Book 1)

Slaughter in the Desert: The Declassified History of World War II (The Adventures of Kat’s COMMANDOS Book 1) is a novel about an MI6 operative who is scheduled to hang for nearly killing a member of the royal family in an operation gone bad. There is tons of action and super-violent killing in this spy/war novel.
Mr. Beals does not waste any time in throwing you into the action and it is nonstop from the beginning of the book to the very end. There is maybe too much attention paid to how attractive the main character Kat is and on placing her in situations that require her to charm, shoot, and/or kill her way out. Overall, though, this is a good novel with interesting characters and plenty of action. The plot threads sometimes don’t seem to come together but, eventually, everything does come together for an interesting story.
Before the war, Kat was living in England as a German expatriate after being recruited to MI6. She eventually heads to the deserts of North Africa to defend English territory from the oncoming Nazis. She quickly becomes involved in a plot to stop the Third Reich from developing and using some kind of super-weapon.
Overall, this was a fun book to read. If you are looking for historical fiction, this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for a fun read that happens to take place in the past, this is a good place to turn.
