A thriller works best when the reader can buy into the story, when the writer manages to get him to suspend disbelief in all the terrors and derring-do. Screams & Whispers never quite manages to do that, at least as far as this reader is concerned. Peffer, however, is onto something, and indeed there is surely a novel to be written about Americans revisiting the scene of that terrible war. I can only wish he had managed to do a better job writing it.
"A sinister cabal of superior writers."
