“This was the first book by Mr. Brown that I have read; it will not be the last. The action sequences are very well done and kept me reading when I should have been doing other things. The exposition is very good, description is excellent, and the narrative moves at a nice pace, particularly in the second half of the book. “ Jon C. Oliver for Word Vagabond

4-Stars! “This book had me invested in the first chapter. Brown really knows how to draw the reader in with the description … you actually feel the cold, heat and fear of the character and the surrounding scenery. The character development was really well done … The first chapter really drew me in and Brown was able to keep me very entertained and interested, it did not quit after a great start … This book has everything that you would want from a book based in this era, U-boats, guns, gold, stolen treasure and of course Nazis. All of this combines to make a really good thriller … There is no doubt that I would read another book by Brown, as I really enjoyed Amongst My Enemies.”

5-Stars! Great Story! This is actually the first novel of this genre that I have read and reviewed. And I’m glad I did! This book kicks off from the start and grabs the readers attention and doesn’t let go. It has a little bit everything. Mystery, intrigue, suspense and even some romance. The main character is an all-American type that you can really understand and sympathize with. The story is so real you can feel yourself feeling what the characters feel. The suspense is edge of your seat and keeps you wanting to keep reading to find out what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be looking for more from this author!

5-Stars! “Redemption in the Good, Bad and Ugly Remnants of WWII! No, this is not just another war story! William Brown takes the reader to the heights and dregs of the human condition, giving glimpses to the motives and relationships that are ruled by head and heart, sometimes but not always balanced or whole . . . . This is a story that speeds along like a Ken Follett or Eric Ludlum novel of old. For those who love adventure, thrills, and mystery with a tinge of romance, this novel will leave you breathless and wanting more from this skillful writer. Splendidly written!

5-Stars! “An entertaining historical thriller! This story might be categorized as “historical fiction,” but the second word almost seems incorrect—the historical details are so well interwoven and authentic that the reader will swear Mr. Brown lived through them. It might also be categorized as “a thriller”—there are thrills and suspenseful twists at every turn of the page . . . It reminds me of Jeffery Deaver’s Garden of Beasts and Frederic Forsythe’s The Odessa File . . . I’m a writer and I often do much more than just marvel at another writer’s creativity—I try to learn from it. As entertainment, this story is much better than The Undertaker, the Brown book I reviewed previously. It is also very different and full of deeper meaning. It provides one answer to the eternal question: What must good men and women do when evil walks among them? Dean Koontz has made a career answering this question. Mr. Brown is off to a good start doing the same here.”
