Now, on to the review:
Honor Due is the first book in a planned thriller trilogy by D. H. Brown. My biggest disappointment with this book was that the other two parts aren't out yet!!!
A retired Special Operations officer who spent time in Viet Nam has spent his latest years in a small town trying to get past the nightmares of his past--until the past jumps up in front of him and he is forced back into a war for not only his life, but that of the daughter of his blood brother. Starting out as the hunted, he turns the table and becomes the hunter--and what is to follow will leave readers breathless--and begging for more.
D. H. Brown writes in a way that gets the facts out there without assuming his reader can't imagine the details. He doesn't waste words--each adds to the mystery and tension of the book, drawing the reader deeper and deeper into Mr. Brown's world.
While the subject matter could lead some authors to crude descriptions and rough language, this is not the case with Mr. Brown. Honor Due is written tastefully, a book for adults for sure, but one parents wouldn't mind an older teenager reading.
I can't wait for D. H. Brown to release the next book in this trilogy, Honor Defended!!
