Where can a wanted man hide in a country full of returned war heroes?
It’s 1952 and Frank Danby has been looking over his shoulder for the last ten years, forced to lead an itinerant life, getting work wherever he can while trying to keep one step ahead of the police.
Returning to London, he finds a job in an East End pub, where he becomes entangled with Grace, the young and beautiful wife of the landlord. Then the law comes knocking. Facing a justice system prejudiced against him, Frank must find a way to escape the gallows.
Too Many Heroes is a gripping period thriller, exploring love, belonging and betrayal in a country still recovering from WW2. A must for fans of the post-war novels of Philip Kerr, Kate Atkinson and Sara Sheridan.
Prepare, my fellow book lovers, because you’re going to want to grab Too Many Heroes right now and read it. You’re going to be missing out on a truly captivating thriller. Set during WWII, I was immersed into the world. I haven’t read many period thrillers, but I’m loving this one.
Jan Turk Petrie’s writing is poetic. Her use of language and just enough description to simulate our minds but not bore us to tears was fantastic. This is one of those books you pick up when you have time to read, because it doesn’t let you set it down. I tried…I had to pick it up immediately to continue on.
Just take my word for it, Too Many Heroes has everything you’re looking for in your next read. Compelling characters, an immersive world, and a thrill ride you won’t want to get off of, you’re probably going to want to move this to the top of your TBR. In my favorites of 2019 and highly recommended!
