"THE AMBASSADOR'S SON
is the reason I love to read. It takes you to a place where propellers and tides and bullets decide men's fates and you feel like you're sweating along with the heroes and villains. Homer Hickam is such a good writer that I'd probably read anything that he put out, but this adventure made me feel like a kid again." --Rick Bragg, bestselling author of ALL OVER BUT THE SHOUTIN'
"Homer Hickam is the best natural storyteller I've read in years." -Stephen Coonts
