I've read a couple of Smith's other books and enjoyed them so I had high expectations of this one. For the most part I did enjoy reading the book. But sometimes the character held a distinctly American mindset that seemed at odds with the background Smith gave him. I also found the ending implausible and out of keeping with one of the characters in particular. But I did like the twist with the DC-3 and wonder whether it was historic. For a better story of a Westerner in Asia in WWII I'd recommend JG Ballard's Empire of the Sun.
