Although I was able to order this book for free, it is very deserving to receive top dollar and recognition as more well known authors receive. I especially would like to thank the author for making this book available via Kindle.
Thanks Mr. Roehl! Keep up the great work and looking forward to your next book.
Roehl does a nice job carrying dual story lines (past memory + present action)in parallel throughout the book. He keeps you wanting more as he seemlessly switches between timeframes. I don't measure a fictional book by grammatical prose, rather how well it keeps me engaged - I didn't want to put it down and finished it in 3 days at the risk of ignoring my wife and kids (that should tell you something!).
A solid and enjoyable read.
