    One thought on “The Scorpion's Nest”

    1. Excellent book! I'm guiltyI read this book with reservations. After all, like the constant stigma says, if it was that good a book it would have been published traditionally, right? Right?Instead, I read an indie book that was so well written, well formatted, well edited, that it is completely indiscernible as a self-published book, whereas the traditionally published NYT bestseller I'm reading right now has one typo in it already. The Scorpion's Nest was just a completely masterful rendition of [...]

    2. This was an excellent book-- great story with an interesting plot and well told. It moved fast, had lots of misdirections and interesting characters.I particularly enjoyed the tie between what happened during WW II and the resolution in the present day. Great idea. The ending seemed rushed. I wanted more a more resolution. Other than that, it was well worth the read. Well done, Nate!

    3. Had a little trouble getting into this book. At first I didn’t think I was going to like it. The setting was, frankly, a bit boring. I didn’t think I was going to be able to associate myself with any of the main characters. But that changed. As I got further in I began to appreciate more where the author was going with the story. I began to love the plot and towards the middle it turned into a page turner for me.This is written in a style that isn’t one of my favorites. I think the action [...]

    4. Scorpion’s Nest is a wonderfully visual novel. Nate Granzow’s writing is very descriptive in painting his scenes perfectly without being boring or going overboard in his details. The story has its beginnings in WWII but the majority of the action takes place in present day, but he maintains the integrity of the story by having the original theme woven throughout the storyline. The book moves at a good pace and the actions scenes are exciting. He has a very believable main character that is f [...]

    5. Take one part James Bond movie with sinister Nazi villains, one part Hitchcock movie with man out of his element, and one part reluctant hero movie like Die Hard, and mix for a fun weekend read.

    6. Another winnerLike this author very much, and I think he is only going toget better. This book was very enjoyable, a goodspy vs spy, with some romance thrown in keepingyou rooting for the good guys to defeat the evil guy.Looking forward to reading another novel from Nate.

    7. Nate Granzow makes a very strong debut with THE SCORPION'S NEST. The novel tells the story of a group of young German-Americans who were mistreated and discriminated against during the Second World War, and out of anger, elect to assist the Nazis in a sleeper cell operation designed to bring the United States to its knees. The mission fails, and only one of the boys survives, thinking that the horrors of Operation: SCORPION NEST are to remained buried in the past.Fast forward sixty years. Scott [...]

    8. WOW! Nate Granzow is now added to my "short-list" of favorite young thriller writers, along with Tim Tigner. This author grabbed me right away, with his novel about a potential biological terror weapon dating back to World War Two. Especially scary since Germany did indeed "lead" the world in research or chemical weapons, and nerve agents in particular. The author's plot moves very fast, and there were many twists and turns that were unexpected. An unemployed aircraft mechanic gets "sucked in" a [...]

    9. If you are interested in a unique perspective about World War II, this might be a piece of historical action and adventure for you. I was intrigued by the premise of the story. The characters' stories brought this period to life for me, and it even sparked a lengthy discussion with my husband (a budding WW II history buff).This budding author's debut novel obviously draws from his experience as a journalist. Keep an eye out for his future books. There are some weak areas in the writing (wordy de [...]
