This novel really races along, and for anyone interested in WWII fiction, it's a cracking piece.
Great plot with a downed USA B-17 found off the coast of Rhode Island. And the crew and mission? Well, no spoilers here!
What I can say, is that Alex Scarrow goes straight into my top 5 authors - I'll certainly be looking for more from him.
Great novel, well written, good characterisation.
Worth £8 of anyones money. Buy it!
This book is a fantastic debut Novel for Alex, I myself am a fan of many genre, and in the world of War time exploits one of My favourite authors is Jack Higgins, some one I consider the master of this genre. I would put this book up there with his best, against the likes of Cold Harbour and The Eagle Has landed.
The Story Is a great testament to the courage or the men who fought in those times, alot of people forget or don't know that the Germans had many Brave men who were not Nazis and hated the Nazi ideal, but at the same time were committed to Germany and her people. They fought under the same appalling conditions with a great deal of courage and conviction...there are 2 side to every tale and this Story Shows the courage of the men from both sides and the hard decisions they might have had to make.
The story has a nice pace to the action, flitting between past and present without confusing the reader, and embroils you in web of secrecy that might have surrounded such an event if it had truly happened with its excellent easy to like characters.
Its a shame that this book is clearly a 1 off as I would really have like to meet some of these characters again.
Keep up the good work Alex, and I hope you write another wartime novel soon as you have a great flair for it.
It's gone right on my top ten fav's ever.
It's generally well written and well paced, but most impressively I found the characters were really, really well written and you were easily able to sympathize with people and forget what it was they were actually trying to achieve, not unlike Das Boot. You'd have a good idea of who somebody was without having reams of back story to wade through which is a trap some authors fall into. Certainly there were characters who were demonized, but if I told you who they were, that'd be a spoiler, and even balanced views of the past need a villain if we're talking literature, because it's hard to think of a good story without antagonists.
All in all, this book caused me a few sleep deprived nights and was finished alarmingly quickly considering the page count, if you like WWII conspiracy stories, or just a plain good thriller, you'll probably enjoy this.
