This talented author has produced another compelling WWI themed novel. There are some intriguing plot twists in this book and it's fair to say a couple of characters have more than edge to them compared to his previous book. The attention to historical detail is still present along with a genuine grasp of the period. I would strongly encourage readers who have enjoyed The Rules Engagement to give this author's latest offering their consideration.

Having read and enjoyed both previous books by this author, I was looking forward to enjoying his latest offering. Once again he has shown extensive knowledge of the period he has set his book in and the partial Australian setting is vastly different from the one chosen for his previous novel. There are some intriguing plot twists in this book which keep the reader’s attention engaged and the dramatic finale is equally compelling. I would recommend this book and look forward to what this talented author will offer next.

The WWI period has been brought to life in this book, just as I would have expected from K A Lalani. Attention to historical detail brings the story alive and the twists in the plot of this novel are intriguing and hold your attention all the way. Well worth reading.
