Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite He Was About To Betray His Oath is a military adventure drama by author Rodney Searcy. This short novel presents a complex mixture of crime intrigue and romantic drama, interspersed with elements of historical fiction. Our relatively contemporary (1980s) hero is Thomas Allen, currently working for the Drug Enforcement Agency in New England, who enters a confusing new stage of his life when he falls for his target, the fiery Donna Murphy, whilst working undercover. Meanwhile, flashes of history take us back to the Second World War, where Nazi officer Wilhelm Strausvon attempts to make a break for the States as the end of the war looms. These two very different stories come together in a fascinating narrative as Thomas makes a difficult decision about his future. Rodney Searcy presents an interesting central character in Thomas Allen, who is more sensitive and thoughtful than his contemporaries in the action/adventure genre. Though there are plenty of high octane moments in the novel’s plot, character development takes centre stage, presenting three central figures whom readers can relate to. Donna is absorbing, charming and written with great depth, whilst Wilhelm’s complexities had me turning page after page. The heated political backdrop of both the 1980s and 1940s suits the intriguing atmosphere of the story well, and description and dialogue were well balanced, delivering a fully rounded quick read that left me very satisfied at its end. Overall, I’d highly recommend He Was About To Betray His Oath to readers looking for an afternoon escape with both adventure and romance.
