7 Hours: Whole Pieces by Ronie Kendig

In each installment of 7 Hours, a character is visited by the enigmatic Thomas Constant, who makes a heart-stopping statement: “You are about to die. But you may choose from one of three options: Live seven more hours, travel back in time and relive seven hours, or accept the inevitable and die now.” 
The clock is ticking.

What will you do with the time you have left? 

Former Green Beret Hawk Wilson and his team were ambushed in Afghanistan which left Wilson without an arm and his team dead.

He relives the horror every day in his mind, seeing the young Afghan boy catch sight of them and revealing their position. Wilson's angry at everyone so when he gets the opportunity to relive seven hours of his life, he knows just where he'll go and what he'll do to stop the massacre from happening.

Kendig is well known for her military thrillers. As this was my first experience with her prose, I was engaged from the get-to. I'm typically not a military fiction type of reader but this was an excellent addition to the 7 Hours mythos.

Like every other short story in this series, Whole Pieces will provide you with an outlet to explore the "what would I do" possibilities.
