Palomino: Afrika Korps P-O-Ws Come to Town by Tank Gunner is a unique achievement, a book that combines several different genres to bring entertainment to readers. German prisoners of war come to live in an American city, following the decree by the president that they replace the laborers who’ve gone off to war. Twig is one of the people who easily gets local support and is appointed Constable of the town of Palomino. How does he get involved in crimes -- robberies, murders, and other sinister games -- in the city? Readers are introduced to an impressive cast of characters that get caught up in a well-crafted drama.
The writing style is unique and it showcases the author’s literary acumen, his skill for storytelling, and the easy ability to entertain readers, to introduce them to the worldview of the characters. What grabbed me is the writing — it’s clean, it’s crisp, it flows easily. I love it when an author knows the value of words and uses it in their writing and Tank Gunner does just that. The attention to sentence structure, the dramatic, underlying force that defines his phraseology hits the reader right off the bat. The characters are real and well developed. They are thrust into situations that are complex. The novel has good, strong plot lines with a lot of action and the emotional intensity that keeps readers focused. Palomino: Afrika Korps P-O-Ws Come to Town is a work of great entertainment. I enjoyed every bit of it.
