    1. In the Weeds Review by Martha A Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat Think With Your Taste Buds and A Book and A DishI sat on Bian s bed, staring out the only window in the tiny room She d been looking west, toward the Everglades The fleeting patches of sun a couple days ago probably would have seemed familiar to her, perhaps like her memories of Vietnam Here, she d known nothing but strangers, uniforms, and pain But perhaps a familiar sight, and a memory of home, drew her toward the unknown.I [...]

    2. In the WeedsIn the Weeds by Mark Ozeroff is a story of a Vietnam veteran working through his own brand of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in the early 1970 s Sometimes gallant and heroic, Slats Kisov often does than just bend the rules and the law But through it all, he retains his own morality, which includes helping the weak and helpless without thought of his own personal loss or gain.This one man vigilante wrecks havoc on those who trample the rights of others and he does so with a huge help [...]

    3. In the Weeds is quite a page turner Slats Kisov goes from one adventure to the next barely able to stay out of serious trouble We first meet him in the air battles of Vietnam where he saw action than escorts in Las Vegas The journey continues after he returns home as he takes some hard knocks and matures into a family man with a better understanding of how to live with PTSD If you re looking for a book you won t want to put down, this is it.

    4. The antagonist, Slats, begins the story as an anti hero His wit and general disregard for convention added a layer of humor to the story The description of combat in the first part had me captivated, and as the rest of the story unfolds, Slats progression made for a great plot as he battled his nemesis, a racist small town sheriff.

    5. Mark Ozeroff is an excellent write but I think the story itself could have been a little tighter With that said, it was a really entertaining read
