Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2017


William Ryan

The Constant Soldier

Published by: Mantle

Lyrical and yet gripping writing exploring guilt, fear, identity and how people act in time of war. Evocative period detail with a range of superbly etched characters full of depth, heart and honesty. Ryan’s story is beautifully written and achieves an impressive thoughtfulness in the midst of a necessarily harrowing WW2 narrative.
