“While the author drops in a couple of shocking moments in the story’s latter half, he skillfully retains a slow burn all the way until the smashing conclusion . . . An exceptional, edgy tale with convincing plot turns and a well-incorporated wartime setting.” – Kirkus Reviews.



“It is World War 1 and the story line alone is shocking but the author skilfully throws some extra shockers in as the reader wonders who will survive.” - Jane Brown, LoveReading Ambassador.
