There's Potential Here - Needs an Editor
on 20 March 2014
It's the present - and a skeleton is found under a concrete foundation laid down in 1945. There is a ring, too, and a Luftwaffe dogtag. Flashback to 1945, and there is a POW camp where captured Luftwaffe men are held. One of them escapes. So far, so good.
Then we press on with the story. Forward and back, police, German spies, British Intelligence, then and now, up and down. Lots of badly written dialogue and mostly unnecessary characters. I found it confusing, and I wasn't gripped enough to care. When we got to the dénouement I rather felt that the author was past caring too, and just wrote down the solution.
