"'I've searched for you.' The patient struggled to get the words out. 'There are...more.' 'More what, Mr. Baroni?' Perspiration beaded on the old man's upper lip and his already pale complexion blanched. He pulled Freeman closer and gasped, 'I'm sorry. Find the others...'"

Dr. Parsons takes a bit of history, a pinch of magic, a hint of mystery, a large dollop of suspense and throws them together in the mixing bowl of his imagination to create a page-turning novel that entertains the reader from the opening sentence to the final page.

I had the pleasure of reading this book, which is apparently the writer's first published book. I was wowed! It was action packed and such a page turner that I stayed up much too late a couple of nights. My husband read it and loved it as well. I'm eager to read his next book and I look forward to hearing that it will become a motion picture. I highly recommend this book. I have recommended this book to several friends who have enjoyed the book. I hope they will take the time to write a review.

I just went through my wood badge training so it was a good read with the fact and fiction mixed in. I really enjoyed the story and will move to the next book in the series.

Wow. There were so many historical inaccuracies in Chapter One alone that I didn't bother with the rest of the book.
