In his profession which deals with Civil War paranormal phenomena, Brandon’s interest surrounding a grave called “The Vigilant Soldier” peaks his interest. After setting up his gear to monitor all activity at the grave and the surrounding area Brandon falls asleep only to be abruptly awakened by a stranger wishing to pull him out of a storm that has set in. In a twist of events, his rescuer offers Brandon a deal. Stay with him for a week and in exchange he’d get all the information on the soldier lying in the grave that he could ever hope for, the whole story.

The Sweet Flag has one of those storylines that flashes from past to present in the telling of the soldier’s tale. The plot was actually different and I liked it, but I just could not seem to connect with the characters; Brandon, I just could not seem to get a feel for and his rescuer, Ron, I did not like the tactics he used. There are a lot of sex scenes, although not done in great detail, and most take place while under the influence of mind altering substances. The Sweet Flag is an okay story, but not one I would shout from the hilltops.
