The style of the story reminded me of the mysterious short stories of Jeremy Dyson, as I enjoyed a plot which rapidly marched towards an impending conclusion that was still surprising.
The storyline still has time for a commentary on the status of current celebrity culture and changes in people's views of war & soldiers.
The only drawback of the book: it wasn't long enough!
It is written in a light vein and a little in the style of Boy's Own. It includes a line up of WWII RAF characters ranging from stiff upper lip to ginger pubic hair.
The reader follows the story through the character of the Obituarist himself as successive obituaries paint in the colourful characteristics of the members of WWII TripleX mission as they each lose their last dogfight with the grim reaper. And all the while the Obituarist himself is growing in stature.
There is, however, a lurking element of Greek tragedy in this drama, right up to the dramatic final obituary.
A thoroughly enjoyable read.

Bought this book and had no idea what to expect. What I got was a cleverly written, compelling read. One part modern thriller to two parts black comedy. I loved it.Published on 30 May 2012 by Tamagni1
A great, light, short read. Tension, friendship, tall tales and daring do. It's crime and black humour, and very well done. I look forward to more from this guy.Published on 28 May 2012 by Fiona McLaughlin
