"It took me a bit to get into the author's writing style -- he seemed to imply a fair amount -- contributed to atmospheric mode. Once I did get into it, the book kept my interest and I was eager to get to the end. The end was a little disappointing -- ended abruptly -- but I guess that is reasonable, given that it is a war story."
-- Sandy G.

Everyone Dies by Michael McGarrity

"I like this series a lot. They seem to start out a little slow, but before I know it I'm hooked! I also like the way he wraps the book up."
--Leslie D.

"Gave an excellent view of what our military is going through in Iraq and Afghanistan. Also a view of how a military court functions. Surprising finale to story."
