No one writes like this anymore, but author Steven G. Walker does... As Raymond Chandler would say, "He talks like a man of his age talks - that is, with a crude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for a sham and a contempt for pettiness!".

"This is a great beach read and one fun novel… just enough violence… just enough romance and characters you will never forget. Padre McCaffery is my favorite and he will be yours too. The plot will keep you praying the good guys will win."

Susan. C

"I thought my fraternity brothers were close… nothing like these beat-up wounded marines and sailors with no experience as detectives take on the whole world. A fun filled ride you won’t forget."

Ben. H

"I served with Steve Walker and his story rings with authenticity because he knows what it means to serve as a grunt and only those feelings he portrays in his characters can come from real life. A great novel you won’t be able to put down."

LtCol Roger. F

"As a graduate of Notre Dame I finally get to read about a Jesuit priest who is a genuine hero, the padre of a Marine Battalion, and one character you will never forget…he is a funny, cigar smoking, whiskey drinking hellion who will fight and die for his Marines. A man who shows the world how to be a man and a priest, and at the same time show his undying love for his God!"

Steven G. Walker’s Influences

Steven’s father was a military man. How did that play into the novel writing process?
~ Big Thrill Magazine

“My dad was a terrific storyteller and I grew up laughing all the time. He relayed to me many personal experiences in Hawaii like drinking as much beer as possible, eating French fries, and throwing up all over the street. He was eighteen years old. They trained in Maui and lived in tents to get ready for Iwo Jima. He told me much about the Marines in 1943 through 1947.”

“And my dear father, of course, who introduced me to all these great writers and the films they inspired. Thanks, Dad.”
