    Book Review

Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite

In a highly inventive work by author Glen Hierlmeier, Lazlo's Revenge is a story that will keep readers turning the pages from the start all the way through to the very end. Follow the story of Maxine "Max" Fischer, a writer and Swiss war correspondent intent on finding the paths her parents, Hank and Roberta, took as they lived through both world wars. During her travels and investigations, she uncovers many interesting people, and becomes intrigued with the influences they had on her parents' lives. Max's ability to dig into the past and uncover long hidden details gives an excellent portrayal of life during and between the wars, and makes for simply fascinating reading.

I very much enjoyed Lazlo's Revenge. Author Glen Hierlmeier has done a wonderful job in creating characters, especially Max, that his readers will connect with, relate to and truly come to care about, thinking of them long after the last page has been read. If that isn't a hallmark of a great author and a great book, I'm not sure what is. The story line is unique and offers a peek into history that many readers will love. Any reader who enjoys historical fiction, romance, war stories, and stories with action and adventure, should definitely give Lazlo's Revenge a read. I am pleased to be able to recommend this book to any such reader. I am also looking forward to reading more from the promising author, Glen Hierlmeier, as soon as I possibly can!
