Reviews

An exciting, fast-moving and crisply written adventure story... Highly recommended * The Literary Review *
Wes Davis's fast-paced tale of wartime sabotage reads more like an Ian Fleming thriller than a mere retelling of events * Wall Street Journal *
What really sets the book apart from the host of look-alikes is Davis's dedication to fleshing out the eccentricity of the main players... It is surely a good thing that we no longer associate war with adventure; if it were always as appealing as Davis has made it here, we would grow to love it too much * Daily Beast *
