    "Fast paced and a great story!" An enjoyable adventure story. Manuel had such a full life and should have had 40 more years!

    "What a Great Read!" I knew Manuel's family and a little bit of the story. Phyllis Owens makes it all crystal clear. I learned a great deal about the culture of Mexico. She also implied (in a quiet way) the political graft we all know Mexico is infected with. It was that graft that eventually tried to track down innocent Manuel, but he beat them! Rest in peace; you are one of my heros!

    "A Reluctant Warrior" Good read, easy to follow and holds your interest during the entire book. Lots of incite into the inter working of a regime.

    "A Reluctant Warrior by Phyllis Owens" Ms. Owens is going to be an author to watch! This is her first publication and a book that is difficult to put down. Her portrayal of Manuel leaves the reader with a feeling that one knows him personally. She describes his family, loves of beautiful women, and the Mexican culture from his humble beginnings to the high esteem that he accomplished with his co-workers and the El Presendente, and then his life in the United States. Also, I appreciated the publication in large font.
