Uneasy Alliance: In The President's Service Episode 10 by Ace Collins

As this episode ten opens, Reese is in a U-boat on its way to Mexico, playing the role of a Brit who sold out his country for money. The U-boat commander reveals a devastating fact about Hitler and December 7, 1941.

Meeker has just met Sgt. Wavel of the British Women's Auxiliary Air Force. She's brought an assignment for Meeker. They are to pick up Reese and capture the sub commander, the most effective killer in the Nazi navy.

We also follow Bauer as he continues his nefarious plans. We get into some mob action too that derails Meeker for a while.

There is not as much action in this episode as there has been in some others. There is much more thinking and conversation by the characters. I was a little surprised that this far into the series we have a couple of new characters and stories. I would have thought that by this episode and around a thousand pages of story that the author would be winding up loose ends, not adding more.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

Ace Collins is the author of more than sixty books. He has also appeared on a number of television shows. He is based in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.

Elk Lake Publishing, 137 pages.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this episode through The Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
