It’s a great book! Not the best piece of literature I have ever read, but all the same, a very good read! I usually stay away from this kind of book, preferring more Thriller/Horror, so this was a nice diversion. I read a few reviews saying it was bad, but it was on offer cheap on the kindle, so I bought it...
I wasn't disappointed. There are a few unnecessary pages that don’t really add much to the story, but otherwise, I don't see the harm in it.
I have even bought the second book by Richard Madeley (I understand it is a standalone book, but it about one of the characters - I won’t spoil it by telling you who!)
Give it a go - if you find it rubbish, I apologise, but you might be surprised like I was!

I am hesitant before reading any book published by a 'celebrity' who is a celebrity for being anything other than an author. I often find them too light for my tastes. I was recommended this book by someone who knows my reading tastes extremely well, so I took them up on their recommendation.
I enjoyed this novel. I didn't love it and I didn't hate it. Don't enter into reading this novel with the view of finding something high-brow and literary because it isn't and it isn't trying to be. The storyline is extremely unique from any other war based novel I have read. War novels typically depict heroes, but James Blackwell is far from being painted in this light. I found this such a refreshing change, although I did find some aspects of the story over-simplified and a little far-fetched.
I am confident that this novel would have been published without the name of Richard Madeley being attached to it.
The title is misleading. In order for this review to remain spoiler-free I cannot say why, but it implies a search for someone being the main focus of the novel, and it just isn't.
