However, it quickly turns into a wonderful novel, you become entranced, hating one character, more and more as the depths of his depravity seems boundless!
You will feel horrible for the other characters and yearn for blessed retribution.
I highly recommend this novel, especially to military fiction and history buffs. It opens up a little thought of part of the war in Europe during WWII. And, then check out Grasso's other novels. I believe the one that led me to this was East Winds Return, or something like that, another amazing read.
It would be "criminal" to reveal any portion of the plot. The book was so engrossing that I could not put it down until I found out what happened, yet the plot and characters were so interesting that I also did not want the book to end. Splendid job of writing.
The setting ranges from a B-17 on a mission over Germany, to Malmo in Sweden, New York, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. Grasso seems familiar with all these places and makes them very real to the reader. The "man's world" that is CBS New York in the 1950s is well portrayed. Walter Cronkite makes a cameo appearance.
The plot has numerous twists and turns, the body count rises rapidly, but in the end good prevails and the villain goes to an ignominious end. It's a good read all the way, full of love gained, lost, and gained again, suspense, and uncertainty. It's the kind of book you want to read quickly, to find out what happens, but it's good enough that you're sorry to finish it. A very good read, well written, beautifully realized.
What I ended up getting was a fast-paced story that taught me something I didn't know (regarding Sweden's role in WWII) ... characters I really enjoyed ... and a thrilling race to try and stop a killer before he can get himself elected president.
Enjoyed it so much that I immediately bought and read East Wind Returns, which I also loved!
