Summary

From the trenches of France, General Sean Courtney comes back to fame, fortune, and a seat in the government. Mark Anders, the courageous young South African whom he has come to regard as his own son, returns to nothing, his grandfather murdered, his property seized by an unknown company. At the bottom of the mystery is Sean's son Dirk, the jealous, violent, and power-crazed genius whose all-consuming hatred can only end in blood.

An unfortunate disappointment.

A much shorter effort that speedily deals with major character arcs without the delicate and deeply thoughtful ways of the past books. A Swallow falls feels rushed and leaves you longing for more.

Disappointed

I made the mistake of buying an abridged version, it didn't have the depth and enjoyment of his other full length books.

A Sparrow Falls

Started listening to Audio Books again after a few years break. This was a good return. The story held my interest but failed to give the transportation quality of River God.
