Dropping the Peppermint is an interesting take on the tail end of WWII. Full of spies and lies. But the deception is so thick, it risks leaving the reader at the side of the road, confused. As the ending nears, the tale becomes a little too fantastical. Nevertheless, it does not fail to entertain and make the reader think. Many incidents of history remain either concealed or lost in the mists of time. As the value of information rises, so, too, does the level of deception. The idea of factions, especially in times of war, is realistic. As power overtakes the imaginations of men, each must chose sides, or whether to cling to, or abandon ethics. The story has more than its share of twists and turns, leaving the reader in the unenviable position of trying to see through the fog of war and deception; the two horsemen that always go hand in hand.
