    If my conversations with other readers are anything to go by, your appreciation of David Downing’s work will depend on your historical literacy. I have a friend who thought that Downing’s novels were too predictable.

    But that is because he has extensive knowledge of the wars of the 20th Century. He knows the shocking events David Downing’s characters will encounter before they happen.

    My experiences with Downing’s novels are entirely different. Because I know nothing about history beyond the fact that Hitler tried to take over the world, Downing’s books have become a reliable source of information for me.

    I learn so much. And yet, the author’s work doesn’t feel like a lecture. He injects plenty of action, tension, and excitement into each adventure.

    David Downing is a legal master of Historical fiction. I was intrigued by the premise of the Diary of a Dead Man on Leave novel. Downing’s research is on point and comes alive in each page and scene.
    Over time I’ve come to appreciate the author’s natural talent of blending historical research with excellent storytelling, as his plot and description is always getting better, novel after novel.
    John Rusell & Effi Koenen series was a great spy-thriller centered on journalist John Russel. I enjoy the fantastic sense of time and settings. The series was a modesty entertaining wartime espionage thriller and one of the best I’ve read in my life.
