 Reader Comments

       After reading  "Hammer Spade and the Four Horsemen", I feel as if I have been to an Indiana Jones movie. The many characters in the adventure story are colorful and exciting. As the story unfolds, you will find yourself becoming involved with the personalities in the story and perhaps begin to compare them with real-life characters you have known. The wide variety of locations visited in the book are well described and picturesque. Your imagination can race ahead as you read, however, you must keep reading to see how the story ends. I keep thinking that this story could be a movie. I can't wait to read the last volume!

      A good yarn, but within the realm of possibility, especially if you knew one of the characters like my brother, Tim Whealton. Tim is a gunsmith by trade and is a "High Master Champion" in both rifle and pistol. I always thought he would be good in some type of clandestine operation. I also personally know some of the other characters in the story like Gerald Neuhaus, Jim Travis and Mike Clover, which made this book an exciting page-turner for me. The author is also an expert shooter and has much expertise in all types of firearms. He is also a student of ancient history and gives brief historical sketches of the various places in the story, which makes for an interesting read.
