 "In a state that produces some of the best writers in the country, Bob Flynn is among the leaders of the pack."--W. C. Jameson
(W. C. Jameson)

About the Author

ROBERT FLYNN is a native of Chillicothe, Texas, a town so small, he says, that one has to travel to nearby Quanah to have a coincidence. Flynn avers that his life's work is "The Search for Morals, Ethics, and Religion, or at least a good story in Texas and lesser known parts of the world," and his novels, North to Yesterday, In the House of the Lord, The Sounds of Rescue, The Signs of Hope, Wanderer Springs, The Last Klick, The Devils Tiger (co-authored with the late Dan Klepper), and Tie-Fast Country, attest to that fact. He lives in San Antonio with his wife, Jean.

Robert Flynn is a native of Chillicothe, Texas, the best known Chillicothe outside of Ohio, Missouri and Illinois, despite its size. Chillicothe is so small there's only one Baptist Church. Chillicothe is so small you have to go to Quanah to have a coincidence. Chillicothe is fairly bursting with truth and beauty and at an early age Flynn set out to find it.

His life and work could be described as 'The Search for Morals, Ethics, Religion, or at least a good story in Texas and lesser known parts of the world'.

Format: Paperback
Bob Flynn is an award winning author of novels and stories about Texas and Vietnam, two places and cultures that he is well acquainted with through personal experience. In his new novel, Echoes of Glory, he blends both the culture of small town Texas with the remembrances and misunderstandings of war, into an excellent, interesting and well-paced story on the search for ethics and right.

Sheriff Timpson Smith (Timp) is the reluctant Korean war hero for the small town of Five Mills, the only survivor of the Second Platoon made up mostly of young men from Five Mills. The town has glorified the Platoon, built a statue of Timp, and made him Sheriff; he, in return, has told the town what they needed/wanted to hear about what happened in Korea (after he tried to tell them the truth).

Ready to retire, he is preparing to pass the caretaking of the community onto his deputy Larry Maddin...until Larry shoots and kills Wynn Mills as Timp was trying to talk Mills into putting his shotgun down. Wynn Mills was a Vietnam war veteran, with a reputation for belligerence and some craziness but he was also Timp's friend (the common bond of coming home from war). When Larry writes in his report that it was a righteous kill, and in fact uses it in his campaign rhetoric, Timp must consider whether to allow this or postpone his retirement...especially since the small town political powers have aligned against him. Larry feels betrayed since he has always supported Timp, and the rhetoric charges the old war hero with losing touch and refusing to make way for the `younger warrior'.

A professor from the neighboring town of Advantage decides to (or is chosen) to write a play depicting Second Platoon.
