Review by: Peter Nicholas Farrell on July 27, 2013 :
An excellent book, written by an author who obviously knows what he is talking about. Brings to life what is known, in Britain, as the "Forgotten War", very relevant at this time as we remember the 60th Anniversary. The plot and the characters are well developed and make you want to know their stories. The military aspects are brilliantly presented, certainly on a par with other authors such as Coyle or Bond. Keep up the good work Mr McMahon.

This is a marvelously well told story. The plot is different and exciting. The characters are described vividly to the extent I felt a loss when any of them died. A murder is exposed at the beginning but it is a wild ride before the killer is exposed. And among all this are the Korean War and a tragic love story. This is definitely a 5.0 read.

Review by: jrrymllr on July 17, 2013 :
This is a brilliant novel, but you might find, as I did, that it's sometimes difficult to keep reading. It's a mystery set inside a sometimes horrific history of a reconnaissance company's experiences during the Korean War.
Both plotting and dialogue are masterful, and the resolution of the mystery, which is so improbable it could easily be a real-life story, is impossible to predict. I haven't read a better book on smashwords or a better novel about war anywhere else.
