    Firstly, let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Good plot, good character development with believable characters, I got quite engaged in each of the main characters in the story.

    Now for the ‘speed bumps’……I found the tendency to jump from one place in history to another quite suddenly a bit disjointed. There didnt seem to be any closure for the story outlined up to the point of the time change in the story and I was left wondering what happened to those people, particularly Johnny Larder. The author had spend so much time building up his character and then ‘poof’ he was never to be heard of again in the story. The same happened with other main characters as well.

    Also, as one previous reviewer commented, the story did tend to ‘run on a bit’ and didnt seem to have much bearing on the central theme. The stories in the different time scene changes seemed at times to be different books or stories ‘stitched together’ until they got back to the central theme, Alexanders lost tomb. Nonetheless, I enjoyed those separate sections for what they were, good storytelling.

    Oh, and as I have commented in other reviews before, watch out for spelling mistakes. There are a few later in the novel that detract from the story and left me wondering if the author was in a rush to finish or had not properly proof read before formatting for Kindle.

    And in closing, the question that was left on my lips at the end of the novel was ‘what happened to Johnny Larder? Did he get to return to England and marry his sweetheart?. Alf got closure, so did Koenig but not Johnny. So, Mister Author, please put me out of my misery and let me know.

    All in all, a decent read and recommended. And dont worry what some of the negative reviewers might say, it was worth every cent of the princely sum of 99 cents.

    Cheers

    An exceptionally good book; Written in such a way that through each section, one truly feels they are ‘there’. It doesn’t just build upon the story, it pulls you into the period with it. The ending was, well, unexpected, and in a very good way. After reading dozens of books in this basic genre, one may begin to see a ‘pattern’ in the writing and know how they will turn out, but that is not the case here.

    To be fair I only read the sample chapters of this book. I found the story somewhat entertaining up to the point I read but I’m still debating on whether or not I will buy the book. The price is certainly fair enough. My complaint is not in the story but in the formatting and punctuation. I found the lack of indentation of paragraphs slightly irritating as well as punctuation errors and some misspelled words. I’m not referring to the differences in English/American spellings, but words or typos such as ‘tlak’ instead of ‘talk.’ Another irritation was capitalized nouns where there shouldn’t be capitalization. I’m not that picky usually but there were so many errors that it became distracting. If I found myself irritated and distracted in the sample reading, I just wonder if I would be a basket case before I read half way through the book. I give it 4 stars for entertainment and 3 stars for grammar, but unfortunately it’s not possible to give 3.5 stars. However, the scale is tipped toward 4 stars because I appreciate the efforts of the author and for keeping the price so low.
