I buy books, I read them, I have an opinion.
What have I been reviewing lately?

Shifting Sands: Tradecraft: Phase One – Michael Shusko
“It is 1944. The German Army crumbles before the unstoppable tide of advancing Soviet forces.
In the midst of the fighting, two Rusdsian soldiers seek refuge in the crypt of a German church. There, clutched in the hands of a skeletal priest, they find The Shepherd – a priceless icon thought to have been destroyed long ago.
When news of its discovery reaches Moscow, Stalin calls upon his most trusted investigator, Inspector Pekkala.
To unravel the secret of the icon’s past, Pekkala traces its last known whereabouts to a band of self-mutilating radicals who were hunted to extinction years ago by the Bolshevik Secret Police. Or so it was believed.
With the reappearance of the icon, they have returned to claim the treasure they say belongs to them alone, bringing with them a new and terrible weapon to unleash upon the Russian people.
One man holds the key to Armageddon.
Only Pekkala can stop him.”

I don’t know about you, sometimes I can only remember the title of the book I want
to find. So here’s a list of reviewed books by title.
I read a lot of Historical Fiction, so I’ve put together a Historical (Fiction) Timeline, which is based on the year that the book starts. It is based on what the author has stated,
or as far as I can tell.
Let’s do this!
