    A moving tale of the unshakable bond between two brothers set against a backdrop of family secrets, loyalty, and small town life. Earl "Earwig" Gunderman is sixteen-years-old when the world is thrust into war and his older brother Jimmy is shipped out to the Pacific theater. Being what they used to call simple-minded, Earwig must cope without the protection of his revered older brother as he strikes out towards independence and adulthood.

    Barbara says: "Fabulous story, excellent narration"
    "Fine read"
    Overall

    A fine book. Simply told. Great reader. Nicely balanced ending.

    By coincidence, I read this after reading Army at Down. The historical background of Operation Torch gave me insight and personalized the turmoil that was the collective experience of WWII. Made this novel particularly moving. I recommend this book.

    Pender Associates is a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing - and creating - armed conflict.

    This was great fun. Well read, cliched characters but like a great comic book it was exciting if not a bit predictable. But so what...

    Enjoy it!

    Thomas Bolden grew up on the streets, his childhood a blur of fragmented memories. But now he's managed to put his past behind him, find the woman he wants to share his life with, and carve out a successful career on Wall Street. Until, in the blink of an eye, his world is turned upside down. A bizarre kidnapping sends him fleeing for his life, his face everywhere on the TV news, and a violent, shadowy organization is framing him for crimes he did not commit.

    Elizabeth says: "horrible narration"
    "Fun read"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book. Fast paced and well written. The narrator did a good job.
