Review

...an intense novel, involving a protagonist with deep feelings and attitudes, who is hounded by mysterious and bloodcurdling forces. The monstrous global plot is set in a landscape that is continually rife with danger...there are paranormal thrillers and then there are authentic paranormal thrillers like Black Road 2012 that not only talk the talk but also walk the walk. --Book Pleasures, October 11, 2009

Masterful, Exceptional, and Thought Provoking...It is cliche to say things like `page turner' and `I could not put this book down', however it is in fact true. I did in fact read it cover to cover in a single sitting....The quality of the writing is truly exceptional, the character development is masterful, and the subject matter startlingly thought provoking. --~~Bloggernews.net, December 28, 2009

Blending a noir mystery with a biblical thriller, Jeffrey A. Friedberg draws upon his own experiences to bring readers quite the story with "Black Road 2012". --Midwest Book Review, December 8, 2009

I absolutely loved this book...I was astounded at how quickly and intensely I was drawn into this story. The author's blend of genres (also adding suspense and paranormal thriller) was honestly brilliant. --Micki Grover Critiques, December 2, 2009

Like a dangerous addictive substance, I was hooked immediately....holding my breath, covered in goose bumps... --Reader Views, October 15, 2009

Sometimes the desire for vengeance brings you upon more than you would ever expect. Blending noir mystery with an almost biblical thriller, Jeffrey A. Friedberg draws upon his own amazing experiences to bring readers quite the astonishing story with "Black Road 2012". --~~Midwest Book Review, December8, 2009

From the Publisher

Realistic action from a real private eye. This work is so vividly written by a master word-smith that it literally drags the reader into the action itself. Absolutely involves the reader totally. An Avatar-like, full brain experience!

I believe the previous reviewers have gone over the plot and characters pretty thoroughly, so I will just add my general review to this book. It is truly a page turner; the characters and the plot interweave to the point where you are drawn in quickly and completely, unable to put the book down because you want to know what's coming next. I had the same visceral reaction as when I was reading the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

I'm really hoping the next book is in the chute and ready for release soon, because I really want to see where this story (and Jack) goes!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Black Road 2012". If you enjoy mystery/paranormal thrillers you will love this book. It was truly a visual experience - I felt right there alongside Jack Vane. Especially the last 150 pages, it felt like a rollercoaster ride. It would be awesome to see this book made into a movie. When I envisioned Jack Vane I thought of Mickey Rourke (who deserved the Oscar for "The Wrestler"). Congrats Friedberg on a work well done!

This book is just out and lucky are those who have already read it.

Jack Vane, an ex-private detective, ill, injured, worn out by time and hard work, wants out of the profession, when he is being accused of murdering his wife and unborn twin daughters.
As he becomes obsessed with finding the real murderers he is driven by greater powers and becomes a sort of semi-god.

The story is a continuous swirl of events, a real roller coaster. It is a paranormal thriller, a love story, a crime story, all wrapped with the myth of the 2012 prophecy. The historical and scientific facts are well researched and the scenes are so vividly described, you feel like you are there!

But don't read the last pages before it's time. The suspense lasts to the very last page.

Sometimes the desire for vengeance brings you upon more than you would ever expect. "Black Road 2012: Empire of the Gods" is the first book of the God conspiracy. Jack Vane, driven by the desire to find his wife's killer, finds that the pursuit of truth will get him just that and so much more on top it. Blending a noir mystery with a biblical thriller, Jeffrey A. Friedberg draws upon his own experiences to bring readers quite the story with "Black Road 2012".

This book should indeed come with a warning label....I stayed up all night to read this rocket ride of a thriller. The action never stops, and you are drawn from page to page to find the answers to the never-ending questions brought up by this book. The book's plot encompasses the Roswell incident to Native American spirituality, to good old fashioned detective work, weaving with incredible detail a narrative about native civilizations and their closeness to nature with sci fi explanations for the inexplicable. The characters fascinate and frustrate, all the while leaving you wanting to know more. Thank goodness it is the first of a four book series...I can hardly wait for the next book!
