A wonderful four-star review for Once I Was A Soldier on Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36311628-once-i-was-a-soldier
The wife of an American presidential nominee is determined to gain more power than she has in the world’s arena. Her involvement with the intelligence agent would bring political intrigue, while Karma seemed to be paying young Melissa back in spades as they share the charming agent’s affections and prowess. Someone wants Melissa dead, and no continent seems safe. Politics, power and sexual gratification will drive this mystery to a conclusion that can shape global alliances while bringing one young woman to her knees in a fight for survival against vengeance.
Daniel Kemp’s ONCE I WAS A SOLDIERis filled with deceit, personal and political machinations, and one woman’s stark look in the mirror that is her life. Dark, detailed and filled with emotional landmines, this tale of intrigue is perfect for those who do not need any fluff or even to like the characters they will be spending several hours with. While not a fast-paced read, there is a depth to this story that runs deep with a plethora of details to absorb.
