But my personal wants aside, this book was excellent. It was definitely a page turner. And I felt like I was there and wanting to look for the treasure. I recognized many of the off base places mentioned. The Negritos are fine people. I was a Cop on the Base and worked the Negrito Gate many times. I met and spoke with their leader; King Alfonso almost every time I was there. The Negritos I met were wonderful, gracious and talented. The kids that hung out at the gate were fun to talk with and made the day go by faster.
I got to know and work with members of the Philippine Constabulary. They were no nonsense types when working and took no grief off anyone. I knew they had my back if something were to happen at the gate they were at with me.
I am lucky to have been stationed at Clark. I found the Filipino people to be wonderful hosts. They are a loving, caring people who are very family oriented. I found all of this in the book.
What is the sign of a good book? For me it is when I get to the end and want more! I didn't want the story to end. I can not wait for the next installment in the series.
This is the first book in a long time that I know I will read again to just enjoy it and see if I missed anything the first time around.
To the Author: Mabuhay and Salamat po for a great read.
All in all, a good read, and I will be looking forward to the next adventure of Capt Steel.
