But this time there's some added incentive, an opportunity Sam thought he'd never see again, the chance to get a piece of his old life back, the only piece he might actually want.

"Rewarding....Knopf blends familiar elements in unusually pleasing fashion and adds plenty of original touches as well....Acquillo is a savvy operator who loves problem solving and has the tenacity of a pit bull. His penchant for intriguing predicaments bodes well for a long and successful series." (Publishers Weekly)
Thoroughly entertaining; if you listen in the car, you'll hope for a traffic jam. Narrator Richard Ferrone does an excellent job voicing and pacing this story.
Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
The dialogue was very very good! But the story lacked something that made me WONDER what was going --- LOVE the happenings of the dog --- gave me more than a few chuckles!
The author is a friend of mine. So take that with a grain of salt. But I found that this particular Sam Acquillo book was very high on style and character development, but lacked the essential aspects of a mystery that I hope for. There was no bog reveal or "ah-ha" moment in this book. Only an "I see now" moment. Still the book is well crafted and the dialogue (something Knopf does particularly well) is sharp as a razor.
I just bumped into Chris Knopf and was delighted to find out there are a bunch of books of his I could bury myself in. Good characters - who grow and develop as the series goes along - good mysteries - fun and serious all at the same time. I highly recommend these books in the Sam Acquillo series, also the Jackie Swaitkowski books are equally worthwhile. Not so pleased with the Arthur Cathcart series (3 books) but they aren't bad by any means - just not nearly as fun to read as the others.
