The Corps

A first class story by a first class story teller and read by a fine actor who has a facility for the spoken word in this and other stories that is a true gift.

Left me wanting more

Normally that's a good thing, but in this case I wish the story went longer. I'd have liked to have heard more about the Boxer Rebellion. This one seemed to have wrapped up quickly, like the author ran out of gas suddenly.
