  • Depth of character

    Both these novels are suspenseful and filled with characters who are complex and strong. Lt Paoletti overcomes not being believed because, of course, paranoia is a side effect of the head wound he received in the Prologue and who could ever believe someone who thinks he knows something in that state. John Nilsson is strong enough to not want anything to happen to Meg Moore. The women they form relationships with are equally strong, for different reasons, but that's what makes reading about the development of those relationships so compelling. I really like the respectful deference to World War II in both novels. Although the 55th Division is fictitious, the friendship that lasted for decades is typical of the relationships that formed (think Ambrose's Band of Brothers), as well as the small glimpses into one cell of the French Resistance. Eve's relating of the story of her relationship with Ralph in the weeks leading up to Dunkirk helped her great-granddaughter Amy at a difficult time. I'm also fascinated by, and in awe of, the multiple storylines in both novels, where more than one relationship develops, whether in "real time" or in flashback. Having read the blurbs for tbe next few novels in the series, I can see that one of those secondary relationships is going to to be part of the story arc that links the individual novels. I thought the novels in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series were well written and I love Alpha Squad from Seal Team 10, but I think I like the intensity of the storylines about the Troubleshooters and Seal Team 16 more.

    Thanks for your feedback!
