5.0 out of 5 stars Home invasion is a reality we all face 10 Oct. 2012
By F. J. Zubek - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Ethan Jones has written a terrifying short story about what would seem to be a weekly occurrence if you watch the news.

The story starts out on a typical street in a suburb where the wife is upset that the husband is hanging on to a shotgun for a buddy for a few days.

But as the story continues, it turns out that the weapon saves their lives when the home gets broken into late at night. Its every home owners worst nightmare as they are woken up late at night and face the thugs.

And fear not, Jones handles the terror of that scenario very well. Two shots ring out. Blood flows and two bad guys are dead.

But then the story takes an evil turn as the husband, being a lawyer, knows that despite how it may appear that they are justified in the shooting of the two bad guys, there are a few innocent pieces of info that may come out during the investigation that could mean that one or both of them, despite rightfully defending themselves, might wind up going to jail for murder.

And so the couple faces a grim decision. Call the police and roll the dice of justice? Or handle the problem on their own and bear the weight of that decision for the rest of their lives?

Read the story and then ask yourself the same question.

Top marks to Jones for a gripping story.

And in addition to the story you get a few sample chapters of his other work you might want to sample.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes the more you know...the more complicated life can get... 4 Dec. 2012

Very engaging short story. Loved the idea of how things can turn out to become so complicated and even against you, even when you are innocent and just acting in self protection. Good short reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Short Essay 22 Sept. 2012
By William D. Curnutt - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Very short story that will look at the thought process of someone who doesn't trust the Police, doesn't trust Prosecuting Attorney's and doesn't necessary believe that the truth can stand on it's own two feet.

Given the fact that the main character is a defense attorney there may be some good reasons for his lack of trust in the system.

But what you will end up thinking is, why can't people just trust the truth. Their short 5,000 word essay is a quick read and gives you some good material to think about how people react to stressful situations, and it's not always good.

As part of the work Ethan Jones includes the first portion of his book Arctic Wargames. I appreciate Ethan sending me this work to review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his usual. 30 Aug. 2013
By Cinisajoy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a big fan of Ethan Jones but this is not one of his better works. I found it rather flat and predictable. There was not enough story and too many previews for my taste too. Now all of his spy novels are fantastic and intriquing.
1.0 out of 5 stars Not really a story 18 July 2014

Too short. The author could have written a much better story. It has the beginning of something potentially interesting but didn't happen.
