4.5 Star Review -
'Ross Collier has developed a great ensemble cast to support his everyday hero with a big heart, in this case, Captain John Garrett of the Australian Army. John Garrett is your quintessential underdog – smart and capable but with the odds stacked against from the very beginning...With a complex character web and the ever present whiff of espionage, nothing is what it seems in Tug of War. The final chapters pack a punch and leave you questioning your notions of right and wrong. I highly recommend this historical thriller'. Read the full review here at Booklover Book Reviews.
Tug of War was long listed for Australian Crime Writers Association 2013 'Ned Kelly' awards.
