EskieMama & Dragon Lady Reads Review: In Shadowland by Timothy Ashby




In Shadowland

Blurb:  

“Suspenseful...Provocative...A riveting work of political intrigue [that]... weaves real-world history into a deft, dynamic historical thriller” Kirkus Reviews


Teddy Roosevelt's son Quentin was killed in WWI. So why is another man’s corpse in his grave?

J. Edgar Hoover summons reluctant Special Agent Seth Armitage back to the Bureau to investigate the shocking revelation. Armitage must travel the world to probe the mystery, and quickly becomes targeted himself by powerful and ruthless forces on both sides of the Atlantic who are committed to keeping the scandal secret—at any cost. The line between enemy and ally blurs perilously as Seth becomes enmeshed with a WWI vet turned assassin with whom he shares a strange bond, a beautiful double agent with a personal agenda, and the political madmen building the Nazi party. The complex web reaches ever deeper, until Seth finds himself forced to make the terrifying choice to protect or destroy the soon-to-be Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler.

In his second book featuring Armitage, Ashby once again brings to life the emotionally-charged period between WWI and WWII, showing us that psychological wounds of war do not heal quickly, and the thirst for power and revenge runs very deep.


Review:                                 5 stars

Again I found myself reading a book that I would not have read or even thought about reading, as some would say not my type of a book.
Holy smokes, this book really had me tied in knots, not only parts of the book were about real people and real events, but the characters were or felt so real that I wondered.
Teddy Roosevelt's son Quentin was killed in WWI. So why is another man’s corpse in his grave?
What a way to being a story, sure managed to claim my attention, this time between WWI and WWII, a time that Germany was humiliated and dragged to the brink of disaster.
Hoover summons Special Agent Seth Armitage back to the Bureau to investigate the revelation that has the power to shock those involved and the US.
" Armitage must travel the world to probe the mystery, and quickly becomes targeted himself by powerful and ruthless forces on both sides of the Atlantic who are committed to keeping the scandal secret—at any cost. The line between enemy and ally blurs perilously as Seth becomes enmeshed with a WWI vet turned assassin with whom he shares a strange bond, a beautiful double agent with a personal agenda, and the political madmen building the Nazi party. The complex web reaches ever deeper, until Seth finds himself forced to make the terrifying choice to protect or destroy the soon-to-be Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler. "
Sorry to borrow a blurb from the book, but if I were to write all that I thought about, I might divulge the plot and the ending, all I can say is that Hitler did all that we know, he was a killer a hater a psychopath, and responsible for way too many deaths not just Jews but a lot of good people died because of his notion of how the world should be.
Mr Ashby thank you for a intriguing story that captured my mind.

I received a free copy for my honest review!
