  • Rob

    Good fast paced story based around an two interesting stories
    An impressively woven tale encompassing refugees and the homeless living in London. Will certainly be reading other novels by this author
  • Heather G

    Excellent, thought provoking story
    I found each character in the story to be believable, and I just wanted to discover with the turn of every page what will become of Richard Ross the former Royal Marine. I am impressed with the amount of research Peter Crawley, the author, has obviously done to make this such a thought provoking and interesting story.

    Following both war veterans and immigrants, an excellent thought provoking and topical read.
    Attending the book launch I was amazed to hear the amount of research undertaken by Peter in preparation for this book. Living in London suburbia watching and reading the news it is hard to relate to the human toll that wars take, both on the civilians and military alike. This book brings home that reality, the fractured life of those fleeing war and the mental as well as physical toll of those fighting it. Exploring uncomfortable subjects such as our recognition and treatment of PTSD in war veterans, the book starts off at a fast pace and continues in that vein as we follow Simon the journalist on his quest for the truth. I enjoyed Simon’s character and would like to hear more from him. All in all a topical and excellent read, I look forward to Peter Crawley’s next book.

    A captivating read.
    A captivating story and interesting read. It seemed to pick up pace in the second half and although I knew the characters’ paths had crossed I was kept intrigued until the end.

    A thought provoking read
    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. An interesting tale with much to consider. Homeless veterans, refugees and the general violence surrounding both. Kept me enthralled until the end.
