More About the Author
When I began writing Alpha Threat, I made the mistake of telling several people what I was doing. They were thrilled! I, on the other hand, was amazed at how easy it seemed to be. I just closed my eyes, and saw this movie going on. All I did was write down everything I saw. First there were only a few chapters. Then came more and more. My family and friends were pushing me for the book. So on I wrote. The result was a book that I am proud of for many reasons. First and foremost, I finished it. Secondly, in my humble opinion, it is a great story. And finally, it is my first book! To see your name splayed across the cover of your own book is an exciting and humbling experience. I find myself constantly checking to see if this is a dream. But it is reality. I sincerely hope you enjoy Alpha Threat. A sequel to this book came out in 2014 titled Caribbean Chill. The funny thing is writing has become easier the more I write. So on I go... Keep on reading!

The writing was initially good but began to deteriorate as the book went on. Near the end, it seemed the author was anxious to complete the book and his language became ridiculous.
I found the book to be entertaining at first despite its many implausible characters and story lines but near the end with the deteriorating writing I skimmed it. If it were not for the imaginative plot I would have given this book one star. I hate to write a negative review but the the last few chapters of the book were terribly written.
The Nazi fortress in the middle of Amazonian jungle nobody knows about for 60 plus years, two /!/ex-US Navy men destroying that remarkable fortress built on a volcano which supplies it with energy for gold production, hundreds of contemporary Nazis living in that fortress who look and behave like they all stepped out of Soviet films of Stalin's era - that is a bit too much!
Maybe I made a mistake and that was a book for kids, though, I have to confess that I laughed a lot when I was reading it!
Make no mistakes here, This is one helluva good story! The plot is riveting, the characters are believable, the pace is lightning fast and the transitions between locations and character development are well stitched together.
I want to contact the author and see about getting a hard cover signed first edition for my collection. If this story is ANY indication of the future, we are looking at a superstar author who has the potential and talent to shine with Cussler, Clancy and Brown.
Unlike Tom Clancy, the military details are not overpowering. Sometimes an author is so intent on showing off his military and weapons knowledge the story line gets lost. Here that does not happen.
This book is so good, in fact, I want to contact the author and reimburse him for this! That's right, This book is THAT good!
I am so happy to have jumped onto his train early! It's going to be an amazing ride.
In addition, the story had a lot of holes in it.

Scary good read. I know it's a work of fiction, but gets you so involved that you could see something like this actually happening in the secret recesses of your mind.Published 16 months ago by Barbara Carpenter
