If you enjoy action, you will love this
This is more than a 'war' story, it is an exciting insight into an almost forgotten episode in our history which is still a smoldering hazard. Great scenes of action flying, serious insights into MacArthur's policy in Korea. Least we forget the Korean police action began 50 years ago this June. Fighter pilot Hal Kirby is a well-balanced character, intelligent, creative, human, handling the cutting edge of technology.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

'Hell to Pay' is a Gripping, Can't Put Down Thriller
First-time author Pete Azzole has created an authentic, very believable Korean War novel...and it's about time someone did it! The flight segments and POW sections are especially riveting and realistic. Hal Kirby is definitely a 'pilot's pilot' and a 'man's man' in every sense. Something tells me that Hal Kirby and Luther Garr may be destined to lock horns again. At least I hope so!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Fast-paced, well-plotted Korean War novel
Azzole masterfully weaves domestic marital and military conflict in this fast-paced Korean War novel. As a bonus, we gain insights of the war that are of interest from an historical perspective. Hal Kirby, a likeable protagonist, manages to get himself into enough trouble to keep the reader glued to the page. There are no dull moments in this well-plotted book.Was this review helpful?
