I really enjoyed this book. It was well developed and flowed easily. I found it hard to put down. I found the characters to be totally believable and they really fuel this story. It is a very thought provoking read and I look forward to reading more from this author. Goodreads Review December 2012

Worn out by war, some take time to come back to their life. Colored Floodlights is a novel as Frank Drury tells the story of Afghanistan veteran Roy Calhoun. As he meets and befriends psychologist Parker Boyce, their bond grows as Roy visits many Occupy Wall Street protests throughout the country and tries to understand the discontent, while figuring out who he truly is. Colored Floodlights explores the mind of the veteran and the lost generation, a read well worth considering for those seeking contemporary literary fiction. Midwest Book Review 2012

"A recommended read for the thoughtful!" "Colored Floodlights is a story with a great plot line that questions whether war is worthwhile or does it bring casualties years after it is over. The main characters Parker, Katrina, Roy and Kimberly are totally believable, especially Roy, as he tries to get beyond PTSD." Reviewed for Readers Favorite by Alice D. July 2012 “The engaging writing style and the shifts in point of view mean the book flows swiftly along.” Kirkus Reviews August 2012
