I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Once you understand each character’s part that they play in the story, it begins to flow more freely. Jack Nylund is a wanted man by many. A Private Investigator is hired to find him by Jack’s dying sister, unfortunately he was misinformed of her death many years ago, hence the disappearance.

Thank to goodreads for having me win this book on their giveaway!

But thestory is good and when youre able to understand the story and followthe action, it became a interesting buook, but a litle to late sadly! Not a bad book, maybe it wi

I felt like I started the book in the middle of the series. I saw the overall structure but didn't feel like I knows the details or foundation. Always felt like I was missing something. I'm still curious of the outcome but not sure I want to commit to reading the following books. ...more

“This is a picture of him from 1919, just after the war, looking like he slept in that uniform all the way from France. He still had that face, but he wasn't the same.

But Jack wasn't like that; it hadn't been a terrible thing for him, I don't think. Or if it had been, then it was one of those terrible things you get through and it sets you free.” 0 likes
