A novel that just doesn?t quite fit into the same square and round peg holes, doesn?t follow the formulas that the big guys set out for everybody and is so well done structurally you need to take pause and enjoy it for the gem it is.?Praise for BR Stateham?Stateham’s fiction is solid, realistic and totally without pretention or author’s ego. He pays attention to detail at all times without making the book hard going. A thoroughly enjoyable read that left me hungry for more.?
