'Strike at the Heart' by L.W. Berry is a very well written, fast paced and interesting story that deals with a variety of elements including science fiction, military warfare, ancient history, medicine and love.

This book of just over 200 pages commences rather abruptly. You no sooner work out what is going on when the whole scene is changed when the military/medical convoy is hurled 6000 years back in time.

Captain John Harris, special forces A team leader, finds himself in a strange and unknown world when his convoy encounters a time gate in the middle of East Africa. He struggles to keep everyone together in spite of the attempts of Colonel David Walsh, MD, to assume command. (Read More at www.strikeattheheart.com)

The book which is in its 2nd edition was given an honorable mention in the General Fiction Category at the 2006 Hollywood Book Fair. In addition to being well written, it is well edited, something that many books today are not.

I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and the way in which the author dealt with the problems which the characters faced in their journey, and I have to say that when I turned the last page I just wanted to scream.

'What happens now?' I demanded to know of nobody in particular. Clearly the book is designed for a sequel which I really want to read, and I think that the storyline would make a great movie.

In reading the book I was facinated by the writer's knowledge of so many different subjects and noted that he has degrees in Mathematics and Science and that he had spent considerable time in the UC library system researching various subjects contained in the book and additionally had assistance from the Special Forces at Fort Bragg.

For those who enjoy this genre of writing I would highly recommend this book.
