This is a well written short story, descriptive, fast paced, and with a shocking ending. Having already read 2 of this author's stories, including "Dying with my children," I thought I was prepared for the twist at the end, which seems to be his trademark, but I was not. I highly recommend reading this and other stories by this author.

Enjoyable. Good for a bus or train ride

I much prefer novels, but this is a great short story. You've got to download this and read it. I's very short, so try it! Even if you don't agree with me, it is not a waste of much time.

Good short story with a kind of predictable twist ending. Still a good read.

If I'd thought about it hard enough, I would have seen the end coming, but I was actually sort of surprised. Kudos to the author!

You people should just read this novel and write your own review on it yourselves. I enjoyed reading this novel. ShelleyMA

I thought it was based on reality, then I realized it sounded like the John Travolta movie, where he's tricked and brings the terrorists car bomb to the base where he worked.

An interesting short story with a somewhat predictable twist, but still amusing. Not a bad little story.
