Synopsis: The year is 1950 and four friends from Markham College in England are now young men in their early twenties. THE ICELAND CONNECTION is the last book in the trilogy that follows their eventful lives during and after the Second World War. Richard Bloombury, nicknamed Pansy, has disappeared while on holiday in Scandinavia. His younger sister Petra and 'Beastly' Barnett, travel there to search for him with surprising results for them both. Meanwhile, Harry Lockwood and his girlfriend Jenny Rawlings are living in Edinburgh. It isn't long before their idyllic romance is strained to breaking point by misfortune and betrayal. Throughout all this, the Captain and his wife Kristy are always available at their home in Cambridge to support their friends. As the years go by, Fate continues to point an invisible finger toward the Land of Ice and Fire. In the summer of 1953, Harry organizes a student expedition to Iceland from Scotland's Perth University, where he is a Lecturer. The scientific work goes well until an ominous link with the Second World War is uncovered. Disaster and horror strike. As soon as Harry arrives home, he sinks into unfathomable depths of despair until at last the mystery of The Iceland Connection is resolved. "D. Edward Bradley did it again with The Iceland Connection! I've been following the Harry trilogy closely. The Iceland Connection is an exciting, gut-wrenching story that takes the readers on a wild roller coaster ride. This isn't just a story of intrigue and action/adventure, it's also a story about love, relationships, betrayal and passion." Robynn Clairday, Author of Postcards from World War II.

From the Author: As always in my novels, I have used familiar settings and events as backgrounds to the stories. In particular, the crucial section of the book, entitled ‘Iceland,' is based very loosely on a university expedition to that country, in which I participated. It took place in 1963—ten years later than this one. None of the characters in the story bears any resemblance to anyone in the real expedition—in particular, we didn't have any girls with us. Unfortunately, my photographs of our campsite and its surroundings have been lost, but I have endeavored to paint a vivid picture of the stunning scenery.

Finally, I would like to thank the Harbor Master of Reykjavik, Mr. Jon A. Ingolfsson, who kindly informed me that the MV Gullfoss, in which members of our expedition traveled, was in service from 1950 to 1973. It sailed from Reykjavik to Copenhagen with a stop at Leith Docks, Edinburgh.
