Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Union Atlantic surprised me, because I liked it when I expected not to - it is not my usual choice of reading. It starts off with the impact on our protagonist of a tragically wrong combat decision. We then follow him into his career in the financial world after having left the forces.
There are several lead characters, all of which are interesting, and one feels the need to keep reading to find out what happens to them next. The plot is topical, with quite a cynical look at the banks, maybe not close enough to the jugular for some of us, or a bit too realistic for others. The book develops nicely across a well defined time-span and feels quite convincing, maybe this really did happen!
Here and there it seems a bit odd, almost as if it is losing its way, and I'm not sure why, especially since much of the book really is very good. So it loses a star for this and a few problems with consistency. But don't let these minor blemishes put you off. In general it is a good read, properly gripping ones imagination.
