    I received this book as the winner of a Goodreads giveaway. First, I love the front cover. The artwork is a part of the same austere and striking family as one I have personally used. Second, I like the premise of the book. A suitcase nuclear weapon is something that seems, as the years pass, to be something less of an 'if' and something more of a 'when'. When I was a budding writer, first work in hand, I had someone give me the toughest piece of advice I have ever received. That, was this: 'It isn I received this book as the winner of a Goodreads giveaway. First, I love the front cover. The artwork is a part of the same austere and striking family as one I have personally used. Second, I like the premise of the book. A suitcase nuclear weapon is something that seems, as the years pass, to be something less of an 'if' and something more of a 'when'. When I was a budding writer, first work in hand, I had someone give me the toughest piece of advice I have ever received. That, was this: 'It isn't ready.' I was angry, I was heartbroken, I was indignant, and I was also wrong to be so. It was one of the single greatest pieces of sage advice I have ever received in my entire life, and I treasure it more with each passing sentence. Why am I telling you this? Mostly, it's to give you an idea of my mindset: I am an author and, sometimes, an editor (though I'd never call myself an editor in a professional sense, as I still have a great deal to learn). I had trouble with this work from the outset. I kept wanting to edit it, rather than read it. I found difficulty in the tone, the flow, the choice of words, and a number of other nuances that are - for me - so important to moving a story fluidly along. In short, I just kept feeling as though I were reading a first or second run-through that lacked the polish and depth of editing that could have elevated something rough to something great. I find that writing is about 20% storytelling, and 80% editing and polish. And it's a hard thing to do - it truly is. Writing a novel takes a monumental amount of time and thought. Editing and polishing one is an even more thankless task that would make most think that potato farmers are probably on to something. It is with all of this in mind that I offer, in the most sincere and respectful way possible, this advice to the author: take this work you've put so much effort in to, and add something more. Consider each word, who is speaking it, and how it effects the cadence and flow. Look for tell-tale inconsistencies, repetition of words or phrases, and make attempts to turn a bland line or paragraph into something noteworthy. All of the structure is there - the bones are good. Take something you've worked so hard on, and endeavor to make it something great. And, if you can not on your own (as I often find I can not), invite those who can to help. Try seeking out the thoughts and ideas of a smattering of unique individuals, each offering up an edit of their own, indicating which sentences or paragraphs are giving them trouble, seeking editing issues, etc. But - when doing so - remember one of Neil Gaiman's principles of writing: 'Remember when people tell you something is wrong, or doesn't work, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong, and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.' I realize that, perhaps, one could do a turn-about and point to this line of suggestion as me being wrong. I'm wrong a lot. Still, I offer this advice in the most genuine and loving way that I know how. Mostly? I want to see you succeed. You're farther along than most will ever be - don't sell yourself short. You're worth better. - Heath

    This was a decent book with a lot of suspense. A lot of what the characters did didn't make sense to me, but all in all I loved the premise and the book was decent. :) *I received this book for free in a goodreads giveaway* Aren't I lucky?! :) This was a decent book with a lot of suspense.

    It was nice to have a female heron, in a book that could be realistic. It was suspenseful and good use of playing on real past events.
