Inspired by true stories from the author's family, "Silent Lies" tells the story of Leo Hoffman, a dashing young Hungarian with a gift for languages who inadvertently becomes embroiled in an international counterfeiting scheme during the general chaos following WWI. When the botched plans end in a murder, Leo flees to the scandal-filled city of Shanghai, hoping to make a new life there for himself and the woman he loves. However, one small compromise sets off a series of events that will eventually threaten everything he holds dear, as Leo discovers that the nefarious gangsters who run Shanghai from the shadows do not intend to let him escape his past.Malcolm blends real historical figures with fascinating fictional characters to recreate an engrossing but rarely-explored piece of the past. Filled with intrigue, passion, history and adventure, "Silent Lies" recaptures a glittering world that no longer exits, while spinning the riveting tale of a family caught up in the tumultuous events of the decadent era between the two world wars.

During the Second World War, when Britain’s very survival depended on her Merchant Navy, ships were being sunk faster than they could be replaced. The mass production of the Liberty Ship, on the assembly-line method in the USA, solved the problem: Britain received 200 of them under the Lend-Lease agreement.

From 1943 until 1951, Ian Malcolm was a radio officer/purser with Alfred Holt & Co., owners of the Blue Funnel Line and the Glen Line. His voyages on the Liberty Ships Samite and Samforth, described in this book, were made during wartime, after which he spent a year on the Samnesse, trading mainly between Italy and East Africa. Subsequent voyages were made to the Continent, Far East, Australia and Indonesia. Dealing mainly with life on board his ships and how he spent the sometimes prolonged spells in port, Ian begins his story with his entrance into the Merchant Navy as a radio officer and continues with his crossing to Canada on the Queen Elizabeth to join the Samite in Baltimore.

During the Samite’s fifteen-month voyage, she called at various ports in the USA and North Africa while Ian’s next ship, the Samforth, on her ten-month voyage, visited Canada, the USA, Egypt, Arabia, India, Mozambique, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Norway and Finland. Life Aboard a Wartime Liberty Ship is an engaging memoir of a young man’s maritime adventures, the people he met, the countries he saw, and the intoxicating thrill of life at sea.

During the Second World War, the Merchant Navy suffered a higher percentage loss than any of the British armed forces, but despite this extraordinary fact few people today are aware of it. In total, 33,000 merchant seamen died, while others were severely injured both physically and mentally. This book is an important volume attempting to dispel the ignorance, and for the first time brings together a wealth of information concerning ship losses, including such details as ships' names, their captains, the route they were lost on, date and positions when lost, loss of life, and many other particulars. A former wartime Merchant Navy man himself, Malcolm presents a compendium of shipping company losses that is staggering in scale. This work will be of great value to shipping enthusiasts and anyone interested in the war at sea.
