Featured Review on this writing by niah

In this stunning story of action and suspense, set against the turbulent background of World War One, a young military Chaplain is thrust into a life and death struggle with a psychopathic British soldier.

When escaping to the wilds of rural North Dakota with his new wartime bride doesn't provide a safe refuge from the pursuing killer, Chaplain Bill Teller is forced into drastic moves that challenge the very foundations of his teachings.
The fast-moving plot is well crafted, and the climax guarantees to keep the reader fully engaged.
