First, a short preamble!
I first became acquainted with Cristina Pugh a few months ago. Cristina’s late husband, Johnny F. Pugh, is the author of Through Smoke-Teared Eyes: The Vietnam War I Fought. Cristina contacted me through Authors.com. She asked if I’d read her late husband’s book and perhaps post a short review of it online.
I did so and a few weeks later, posted my review of her late husband’s book on Amazon.com. This is an wonderful and amazing book. In addition, it is a winner of several awards! I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the infantryman’s experience during the Vietnam War. You can read my review here if you would like to.
Yesterday, I received a wonderful surprise!
Cristina wrote a wonderful Five Star review of Serpents Underfoot on Amazon.com calling it
“An intelligent current-day spy novel with a love story that dates back to the Vietnam War.”
You can read the entire review here. I have included an excerpt:
In summary, Serpents Underfoot is a very well-written novel that exhibits Gilbert’s passion for and extensive knowledge of military history, martial arts and spy sagas. It quite effectively blends these themes with terrorist threats from well-financed middle-eastern extremists and current-day foreign government meddling into controlling and financing United States presidential campaigns. Any reader who loves spy novels combined with an exotic love story that goes back decades will certainly enjoy this book. D.C. Gilbert is currently working on a sequel to this, his first work of fiction, and I am looking forward to reading more by this very talented and skilled author.
All I can say, Cristina, is thank you for the wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed the book.
