RED SUNRISE is a literary thriller based in the Pacific southwest at the end of WWII that brings the reader into the mind of a warrior turned anti-war hero. He seeks redemption for the loss of both his ship and his family, but how can his natural fighting spirit triumph against the growing tide of US Cold War policy?
Reviews for Red Sunrise
“Simon Laffy’s amazing ability to describe characters, their emotions and their surroundings puts the reader in the heart of his imagination, painting pictures in your mind like an impressionist artist.’
“With the recent release of films such as Darkest Hour and The Death of Stalin, Laffy’s description of enemy attacks sends a shiver down the readers spine; despite being a fictional novel, Red Sunrise takes you on a rollercoaster journey exploring the truth and horrors of nuclear weaponry, wartime, love and loss.”
Lynda-Louise Tomlinson, Wrong in All the Write Ways
“The descriptive writing is superb. I particularly enjoyed the description of the attack on Hiroshima and the evocative passage conjuring up the storm at sea. I imagine that Laffy is a sailor, because the nautical writing has powerful veracity.”
