Bound to be interesting with an ex-Marine partnered with an ex-SAS soldier. And indeed it was!
An adventure fuelled, action-packed quest undertaken by the main characters, Plato Wyngard and his comrade at arms Luther, whilst dodging and battling appropriately sinister opponents, scooping up a couple of unexpected side-kicks along their way.
Camaraderie and snarky humour between the protagonists well done and never over the top. Typical laconic humour of defence force members the world over.
Loved the characters, the mythology of Vietnam woven throughout the plot.
I see a Matt Reilly-like duo of authors in the making here - still early stages but the signs are definitely positive. A dynamic duo of authors that I'll be watching, and reading long into the future, that's a certainty.
An all around rollicking read. Highly recommended!
I received a no-obligation free e-copy of this book and voluntarily chose to post a review. And bought the next book in this series - if possible, it's even better!
I liked the characters and the fast pace. The story line rambled a bit but easy enough to follow. There were three groups in the chase for the treasure and of course one of them was on the side of good. Some parts were improbable but then it was fiction. In all an enjoyable read
What an exciting read , this book was action even in quiet moments. The characters of Plato and Luther were very believable .I love stories involving searches for ancient artefacts and the bad guys always lose.If you liked this book read any of Ernest Dempsey .
