Readers Comments and Reviews
This novel could easily be made into a movie! There are twists and turns that could only be written by a soldier. I enjoyed the great detail the author lavished throughout the book. I was there and could see what he wrote which made it even more exciting!
 This book is listed as Historical Fiction but reads like history...
 At first, I didn't think that I would like this book. Very quickly, though, I was drawn into Jake's story and couldn't put it down.… 
 To say that this was an easy read would not be true. It is an emotional read but well worth your time. Buy it, read it and then go out and thank a veteran for their service. Never forget those who are still MIA.

 I must say that I was completely caught off-guard by this story. The building of tension and the execution of the story was top notch...something I expect from a best-selling author...certainly UNexpected from a self published work.

 I did not want to put it down. Looking forward to your next book Warren! Hoorah!
