edge of seat, action packed cant put down
WoW!! One of my favorite books of all time. Greg Iles is a gifted author. Historical suspense novel that will keep you going till the very end. History, suspense, murder, intrigue and romance all wrapped up in one amazing book. If you haven't read a Greg Iles book yet then this is an amazing book to start with you'll be reading all of his books like we're trying to.
Excellent story by one of my favorite authors. Make sure you have extra spare time for this one.
Have already ordered more of his books. Very Good read. Could not put it down. Wife made me shut off reading light.
D Day , toxic nerve gas, etc
Good book. A little different subject matter for Iles
I loved this story it kept me on the edge of my seat for a great deal of the book. This is the third book by Greg Iles that I have read and I think it is his best so far. I intend to read more of his books.
Great book of World War II. Different subject matte for Iles, but very well written. Kept me on the edge of my seat...really loved it! Great read!
Fast paced edge of your seat book.
Awesome book, another one of Greg Iles books that you just cannot put down
I thought this was well written for a second novel. It picked up much quicker than his first (Spandau Phoenix) and remained a good read throughout. The characters are fully developed and colorful. The historical value is well inserted and his research obviously intense. For readers of high drama or historical fiction, this is an excellent read.
This was an excellent book. It was well written and the plot was intriguing.
A very interesting fictional historical novel.
It deals with WWII and some of the evil of that era.
good book - love this author
After Dr. Mark (Mac) McConnell dies, his grandson discovers the American pacifist had served the war effort 50 years ago: D-Day is imminent when British Prime Minister Churchill learns that the Nazis have a "Black Cross" class of deadly nerve gases. The British coerce Mac, then a defensive chemical warfare researcher at Oxford, into accompanying a battle-hardened Zionist to execute a plan to convince the Germans that the British also have the gas. Mac and his accomplice must penetrate the German concentration camp where the gases are being developed and tested, then destroy the camp with the Allies' own tiny supply of Black Cross gas. Aided by a German nurse, they pull off the improbable plot. Like Iles's previous book, Spandau Phoenix (LJ, 4/15/93), this is graphically violent and fast paced, but it is more tightly written and better focused than that first novel, which was a New York Times best seller in paperback. A tribute to World War II valor and sacrifice, this suspenseful, above average thriller is recommended for popular fiction collections.--.
I thought this was one of Iles' better books! Very exciting. And believable.
i loved this book. really powerful reading
this booked turned me on to greg iles. i read it in about 24 hours. great WWII action.
Good period thriller set in closing stages of WWII.
Excellent Nazi-era fiction. Big, involved, exciting -- I stayed up all night reading.
This was my first Greg Iles book. I really enjoyed his writing style and the story and characters were very engaging.
I really enjoyed this a lot. It was suspenseful and intriguing. There were definite places where I just couldn't stop listening. Highly recommended!
KEPT ME IN SUSPENSE.. SMITH WAS A DOG!!
Rarely do I keep a book. This one is that good.
A fantastic book! Non stop suspense and action. Takes you from present day back to WWII with a story of the Nazi development of Sarin and Soban poison gases and their potential use to stop the D-Day invasion. A great book.
one of his best. He never disappoints. I did not know that he had written world was 2 books & am looking for more of his early works.
