This book marks the introduction of Patrick West, a twenty-three-year-old university educated London detective who wants all the adventure Jack Price, a thirty-year older ex-MI6 operative is willing to offer. Within days of the two meeting, Patrick has another identity in New York tracing the relatives of a 1937 secret discovered by Jack from a Jewish man who survived the Second World War by hiding in the churches and sewers of Vienna.
After a short but dramatic period of time, Patrick's personality has changed forever prohibiting his return to his once relatively stable life and confining him to the nefarious world of the intelligence community.
This is not a Jack And Jill novel. It is an intelligent well-researched book, that will throw the reader from one place to another in just the same manner as Patrick was thrown in his relationship with the secrets and lies contained in this story.
Once I Was A Soldier is the sequel to this book with a third novel featuring Patrick West due in 2018
