5-Stars! “Unexpected Charms! Wow! I read the Prologue and decided I wasn’t going to like this book. Then I read Chapter One and was hooked. I read Chapters Two and Three. I had to put it down and do other things, but took it up again at bedtime, waking in the morning to find I had left my light on and my Kindle still beside me … I especially liked the juxtaposition of familiar and weird details in the Chicago scenes … Brown’s originality peaks in his use of one of the most bizarre weapons you could imagine (‘bet you can’t). He writes a good romance, too, psychologically deep and yet amusing. The clever, kick-butt Sandy accompanies Pete all the way back to Boston, New York and D.C … Brown has a crazy imagination, but there are enough references to familiar landmarks in these cities that you will go along with him as the plot races toward a deadline.”

5-Stars! “Involved and involving! This one had more twists and turns than many I have read recently. I always like a novel that adds historic information indirectly, as this one did about a part of WW II that I had not previously known. Interesting characters and unusual settings added to the enjoyment.”
