LEISURE READING Jerome Nicholas has already proved himself worthy of room on your book- case shelves with his previous novels, "The Widow's Peak," "The Asbestos Mask" and "Whispering Steel." His latest novel, "Salute to Tomorrow" lives up to earlier expectations and will be welcomed by all readers who enjoy a well-written book with an excellent plot and swift moving action. The story centres around Jane Menzies who, immediately be fore the war, rejects her fiance in a fit of pique and marries German dip lomat Heirnrich Reinhardt. Ex-fiance Ian Blount next meets Jane when she helps him out of Germany early in the war and after her husband has proved himself to be an utter swine. From there the story moves into a gripping game of move and counter move between England's famous M 16 and its Nazi opposition. Both Ian and Jane have their parts to play and even the most blase reader will find it difficult to put down "Salute to Tomorrow" until the last page is turned- Even though a story of espionage, it is not a war book. Pub lished by Hodder and Stoughton, Lon don, "Salute to Tomorrow" sells in Australia for 9/6 and copies are avail able from Barkley and Gilbert.
