Conrad Davenport is the hero of the piece, which starts as a routine drama against the backdrop of the last days' of National Service in 1960s Britain. A sickly child, Conrad develops from National Serviceman to Royal Military Policeman to Special Operations Soldier in Paris during the days of terrorist attacks against the West. He is not a typical serviceman or gun toting hero and his weakness for the fairer sex might nearly prove his undoing. The Price of Freedom is a tension filled read about the development of the main character and ultimately the triumph of good over evil. It builds to a dramatic climax through the machinations of the military machine but the outcome is neither assured nor predictable. As the pace increases, The Price of Freedom will hold your attention until the end leaving the reader to draw their own conclusions.
