SUMMARY:

As these five lives converge in a sweeping arc that takes readers on a tightly woven and gripping journey–from the destruction and cruelty of war to the relentless pressures of corporate greed–EO-N reminds us that individual actions matter, and that courage comes in many forms.

The BookViral Review:

A powerful and intriguing war story that straddles past and present, Mason leads his readers on an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness with EO-N and it certainly isn’t slow off the mark!

A gratifyingly graphic page-turner with real depth, Mason writes with an impeccable eye for detail to deliver a taut, compelling read with a superbly executed plot. There’s a real sense of authenticity here and it comes in the main from Mason’s astute rendering of Squadron Leader Jack J Barton and Gunther Graf.  There’s a well-worn familiarity to both characters and yet Mason ably manages to avoid the trite tropes typically associated with WWII fighter pilots.

We come to see each from their own perspectives. We can clearly imagine them as the flak flies, as enemy fighters attack, as wings are shredded and engines catch on fire yet Mason is careful to ensure we never lose sight of the bigger picture. As they navigate feelings of honour, loss, horror and guilt. Both irrevocably tainted by the detritus of evil as they become entangled in a child’s waking nightmare during one of history’s ugliest times

As Alison and Scott come together to solve the mystery of Jack’s disappearance Mason gathers all of EO-N‘s tightly wound tensions and savagely uncoils them. Yes it’s a war story, yes it’s a mystery and the story Mason tells is heartbreaking in more than one way but it is always a story about the values, sacrifices and the heroic deeds of good people.

Highly compelling and darkly introspective at times EO-N makes for a riveting read throughout. One to add to your must-read list, it is recommended without reservation!
