Editorial Reviews

Review

"Espionage on the ocean waters--a novel that, with a pre-World War II timeline, promises a buildup of pure suspense, which it more than delivers." - Kirkus Reviews

From the Author

I have always been intrigued by the period just before the Second World War.  It was a time of increasing danger and yet so many people were oblivious to the coming storm.  For those of us whose lives were formed in the aftermath of the war this time seems particularly poignant.

More About the Author

Author John Bushby draws his inspiration from the classic spy films of the forties. He was introduced to the film noire genre while in grade school. Beginning by watching grainy films on a1950s black and white television he began to satiate his taste for the genre by reading everything he could find. He soon became a regular at the bookstore and library. Bushby has drawn on the experience of over thirty years of global business experience, traveling in and out of Europe and Asia to set the background for his books.

His characters come from the people he has met along the way. Heroes and villains are drawn from casual and close acquaintances, often a mixture of both. His stories put the reader in the place where they ask, what would I do in a situation where life or death might hang in the balance? Bushby's characters live in the years between the two world wars caught in the swirl of action and intrigue as spies try to best one another and evil and good position themselves for the catastrophe to come.

Bushby was born in Westfield, NJ. He earned his pilot's license at age 16 flying out of what was then Hadley Airport in South Plainfield,NJ. A 1966 graduate of Westfield High School, he has a BS from Rider College and an MBA from the Wharton School. He is a retired US Navy Lieutenant Commander with 67 combat missions over North Vietnam.Bushby lives in Flanders, New Jersey. During his business career he has worked in over 30 countries and is an expert on emerging securities markets. He is divorced and has 5 children. He enjoys travel, fly-fishing and writing. is now working on the next titles in the Harry Braham and Rick Kasten series. John is an NAIBA Regional Author. You can learn more at his website; www.johnbushby.com or follow me on Twitter @JbushbyBu.

John released Prowler Ball in December 2013. This is the story of a young Naval Flight Officer in combat in the skies over North Vietnam. It is based on his experiences flying in the last days of combat in the skies over Hanoi and Haiphong.

Look for John's seventh novel, Revenge of the Dragon Lady coming in Autumn of 2016. Set in the Philippines in 1938 US Navy flier Jack French is pitted against enemy agents and traitors looking to surrender the islands to the Japanese.

The setting is the late 30's prior to America's entry into WW2. Excellent and very accurate historical fiction. Every situation could have been and probably did happen at some point. I rate historical fiction by: Accurate to the period? Could this have occured? Are the settings and individuals possible? Is the plot believable? A+ on all accounts. Some espionage, refugee smuggling, love interest, should be something there for everybody. I'm sure there will be a sequel which I will certainly read. A bit of a format problem but after a chapter you'll get used to that. Formatting does detract but the book is worth the format problems which aren't that bad.

For those who like spy novels, especially one with a World War II setting this book is for you. It was easy for me to envision the spying, bribing, and killing that went on during those years in our history. The story captured me and I stayed up very late one night because I just had to know how it ended. The ending was a complete surprise to me. A Good Book.

It's a testament to the author's disdain for his readers, that this Kindle book, published in 2011, still has the formatting errors noted by other readers. Every other line is broken up, making this the equivalent of one of those emails you occasionally get. A long, long, long email. Hey, the book is only 99¢, but he's had over a year to correct it, yet hasn't bothered. You shouldn't bother either.

I have arrived at the point that if I am having trouble concentrating or losing interest, I stop reading the book.

As an author and fan of WWII era novels, I was excited to find Shadow Soldiers available on Kindle. I enjoyed the plot, characters and story. However, I must comment on the poor formatting for Kindle. Sentences were so broken up on lines that it was very hard to follow the story. A line may have only one word of a sentence. Also, there were many times where there would be a double spacing between sentences, indicating where a paragraph break should be, but it was just the next sentence in the paragraph or even the completition of a sentence. There was no break between chapters. Having produced books for both print and e-format, I believe that with some format editing, it would make the book easier to read and more enjoyable. The author tells a good story and I look forward to reading his next book; hopefully better formatted.

I could not even get half way through the book, the story seems to be going nowhere. It is a hard read.

I have never seen a Kindle book so poorly formatted. Never got to read on my "non-kindle" android reader...

Hopefully the Author will take notice and provide everyone with an update and their release.
