I was really torn by my rating for this book. The first two thirds seemed boring and a little confusing. But the last bit picked up the pace and held my interest. Sheldon is an 82 year old man. A former Marine who was a sniper, or not. Living in a country whose language he does not speak, he becomes a very unlikely rescuer of a small boy after his mother is murdered. Sheldon’s dementia (or is it?) create some rather implausible misadventures. Sheldon grew on me and by the end I was rooting for him to find the killer and be the hero.
I’m not sure I can give this a recommendation. I think it depends on you. Some may like this more than I did. It wasn’t an awful way to spend a few hours though.
