Didn't click for me.

Would you try another book from Mark de Castrique and/or William Dufris?

The story starts with a combat Veteran, healing from wounds, and meets another Veteran. There is this mystery and they come together to solve it.The contemporary Veteran characters held my interested with their interactions with each other. I was good with the story up to that point. Then a lost diary is introduced in to the plot. Now the focus changes and the diary is going to aid in the solving of the mystery. The kid in the diary did not add more interest for me. I found the story of him and his troubles boring to me, and the flashbacks to the diary were irritating. About this stage in the story I lost my interest. Either, to keep reading any further or where the story went from here, and quit reading.
