"I have just finished reading your book. It isgripping, you offer up an indelible and vivid flash of your life -- thefurious, swearing drunk, wriggling on the sidewalk "like a turtle on ajar" as many of your friends unaware of what you are really doing standaround mocking you. You do not shrink from the graphic details of sexand violence. These are truly the chronicles of a writer who truly knows what it is like not to be able to tell the truth to your family andfriends, and who is not beyond having his heart broken. Thank you Johnsharing this painful and illuminating journey."James Bowen @ New York Times

"Having met John recently through my work and reading a recent article in a local newspaper, I decided to purchase the book. That was the easybit, the hard bit was I found it extremely hard to put my iPhone downhaving purchased the ebook. I found the book a tence thriller in parts a wonderful love story in others. My first read in a long time, but onethat I remain thinking about even if I found quite sad. Excellent, buyit."
"John Coventry, I Was I Am I Will be, what a book! Sex, blood and action ! Loved every page and could not stop this read. I think one of the bestreads in 2012. This is the racy story of how a young British man getsinvolved with terrorists and drug runners, passing information back, heacts as a spy and the story takes us all over the world. It's a truestory memoir in two parts, this being the first of two books. An easythrilling and fast read."
"I was not at the beginning of the read, sure if I wasgoing to like the Author John Coventry, but as the story developed myview changed as I think he changed from a foolish and stupid young manto someone who, while clearly scarred, is trying to do the right thing,not just for himself, but for his Country. Life is about choices andJohn Coventry has to start making them. When I had finished this book,my view of John Coventry had changed, he is smart, but kind,understanding and loyal and so very very sexy !!! So, I for one thinkthis book is a very worthy best-seller and the film will be ablockbuster."
