the long road home Reviews
Second in the John Paxton series. Attention to detail and fast paced story line kept me up late I to the night! I loved Say Goodbye, and liked The Long Way Home even more! Political thriller writing at its best!
Just...BRAVO. What a thrilling, fast-paced, energetic book. The descriptions are amazing! Formal review to follow!
"The Long Road Home" by Robert Capko picks up where "Say Bye" left off. John Paxton is rescued from Serbia and airlifted to the U.S, Base in Italy. The mission is over and John could return home to his wife and family. Instead, he discovers that he has brought back the "fake" package and the real one is now in the hands of terrorists. They are planning to sell it to Iraq in exchange for barrels of nerve gas, which is capable of killing millions of innocents. John Paxton can't allow that to happen and volunteers to go back to Serbia to stop this transaction and make things right. He teams up with a couple of Navy Seals who will help him with this mission, but first they must find and rescue McMurphy, who is held prisoner by the Russians [his true identity was leaked to the Russians by an informer in the Pentagon] - he is the key to the success of this mission. However, before they leave, Paxton is arrested for destruction of government property - Major Thompson brought him up on charges even after Paxton saved his life and rescued him from Serbia.I thought this book was much more intense than "Say Bye". There are several times when I thought the mission was completed and John could return home for good - but there always seems to be yet one more thing that needs to be taken care of first. Meanwhile, John Paxton's stateside boss, Colonel Ward, is kept in the dark and led to believe that John is still in Italy being debriefed - General Reed never told him John went back to Serbia. Frustrated that John is not calling home during this time, his wife begins putting the pressure on Col. Ward. As a goodwill gesture, he arranges to fly the Paxton family to Italy to meet up with John in between these briefings. Little do they know, the Pentagon leak and traitor is planning to meet the family when they arrive.There is so much going on here that readers will have a difficult time putting this book down - a real edge of your seat page turner! I did find typos and errors again in this tome, but not to the extent of Robert's first book - so I didn't take away a star this time. I still recommend that the author invests in a proof reader for both books and republish afterwards. I would still recommend reading both books - back to back - to fully enjoy the adventure. Great job Mr. Capko! Looking forward to seeing more from you in the future!John Podlaski, authorCherries - A Vietnam War Novel
