If you like books that don't take themselves too seriously as much as I do this one might be for you. After is a PI who's not glamorous, not dashing and not heroic. He's just a regular guy like the rest of us trying to keep afloat and out of trouble. I could sympathize. Fun read.
Wow... Really. Wow. This novel starts out with a storybook romance, but before it ends you've lived through the Congo rebellion and a horrific situation where the protagonist is dominated by an abusive husband and then... well, I don't want to spoil it but it's a heck of a ride.
I read this one in as close to one sitting as I could manage and still work and sleep and eat. Quite a story. Really captures the atmosphere in post war Germany and the cold war. Darned exciting and Colling was a guy I could respect. I'm glad to hear this is the first in a series, including: Rat Line, Ram's Horn and White Eagle.
I'll be reading them all.
I love reading memoir and this one's one of the best I've ever read. It's by a general who started at the bottom and worked his way up the hard way.
There's one story here about when he's wounded that should be in a movie. It was great.
This is a tragic story about undiagnosed bipolar disorder.
Then it kind of makes a leap into the spiritual realm after the daughter's death.
I wouldn't have believed a regular woman could take the spiritual journey this one did. She really surprised me when she fasted up on that mountain for several days until she had a vision. Amazing story.
