This book is a tight, well written work of fiction with just enough description to bring the reader into the story without overburdening detail. The descriptions are short and snappy, you can imagine what horrors these brave men witnessed and the trials they must have endured. The story starts off with a bang- literally; which keeps the pages turning in this easy, fast-paced read. It has a terrific hook which carries you through to the end. The well placed sarcastic wit had me laughing out loud, and the overarching relationship between the protagonist David and the honourable Dr. Morgan, at times, brought me to tears. Engaging, suspenseful, funny and touching, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will read this author’s work again.
