A Casca novel by Tony Roberts that is the closest to the current time of the Casca timeline. I liked this one. It is similar to #37, the Roman Mercenary, but really keeps you guessing almost the whole way. Casca and a team of handpicked mercenaries set out on a mission, to track down and eliminate a psychotic killer during the early stages of the Balkan wars in the 1990s. This killer also happened to be the one that killed Casca’s lover during the events that took place in, I believe, Casca #12. The backdrop took place during modern times, which is not my favorite backdrop for a Casca Novel, but the action has a good pace, and keeps you turning the page (or swiping them if you are one of those Kindle readers). I really enjoyed the part when a character we met in an earlier Casca novel made a surprise appearance. I also enjoyed reading about an area and event that I participated in only a few years later. I only noticed a couple editorial mistakes. The cover Art is good, except the Casca character. He looks more like Jack Tripper (Threes Company), with the facial expression you make when you fart, and look to see if anyone heard it. Over all, a real page-turner, and a good read.
