This is the most exciting, action-adventure novel I’ve read in a long time. Good characterization and fine sense of place only add to the exciting action.  This is a wonderful read.

Those of us who know the Big Bend country are impressed by Lodge's accuracy in portraying not only the terrain but also the nature of the people.

~ El Paso Times


This is a damn good read...impressive. [Lodge] paints such a clear and precise picture that one can almost taste that part of Texas. Very human and touching...written in an earthy, romantic and heroic fashion. A rip-roaring, good tale...a major piece of work.

Shadows of Eagles is an historical action-adventure based on fact, about the little known German POW Camps established by the United States during World War II. The dangerous breakout by a group of Nazi prisoners activates a perilous pursuit by a posse of Texas Rangers, drawing together a prisoner, and three brave Americans – two veteran flying aces, a determined lawman, and a desperate woman. Bi-planes, horses, machine-guns, and Winchester rifles culminate in edge-of-the-seat air-combat over the magnificent badlands of America’s Lone Star State
