Editorial Reviews


Praise for David Alexander's Thrillers

"Alexander is a writer who cuts to the bone. One of America's most original and powerful voices in thriller fiction." -- Star Tribune

"Blistering and brilliant, Chain Reaction is thriller fiction at its best." -- Camden News Service

"Under Attack is a global action thriller that works both as riveting fiction and as a case study in preparing for doomsday ... pistol-hot ... a must-read." -- Star Tribune

"If America ever finds itself under attack again by terrorism it's a good bet it may resemble the disturbing visions portrayed in his thriller Under Attack. This is a great book because it extrapolates a future, however terrifying, from the events of yesterday and today. Alexander has managed to foretell a possible future "day of infamy" in prose as gripping as any of his contemporaries. He is an author whose work demands attention. His imagination is vast and his grasp of the myriad technological complexities of modern warfare and strategic politics, to name but a few, is startling in its extent. This is a strong book by a very special and very large talent. It's a book with the power to carry you along and make you wonder at its end." -- Gloucester Examiner

Praise for Brothers of the Gun

"Brothers of the Gun is faster than a speeding bullet ... slicker than the slickest contender out there. Go and get this book today!" --  St. Paul Intelligencer

"Outshines ... the rest ... of the pack. A total knockout extravaganza." -- Village Guide to Books

Death Pulse is a crackling good read, and it flows exceptionally well. Its seamlessly woven multiple story lines come together with power and excitement, unlike other disaster novels. They are more than just "multiple" lines, though, because of their total integration into the exceptional narrative -- they're actually part of a single and beautifully crafted whole with an exceptional power and grace all their own. I liked that there was no wait for the cause of the disaster (a nuclear blast in space) because it took place right at the beginning, unlike in other novels where the wait for the disaster to occur takes a long time and is therefore sometimes anticlimactic. The book was very savvy and very knowledgeable about the damage caused to vehicles and other electrical and mechanical systems. Altogether a very spectacular read.

I was so impressed by the technology matters in this superb thriller that upon consulting comments I've learned that an EMP pulse and its damage is strictly related to the amount of pulse which is determined from the source, orbital altitude or range, type of weapon, and other factors. Some cars will fail and some electronics will fail while some will not. EMP can travel down telephone or power lines, but then again it depends on how the pulse was generated and how much protection you have on your particular portion of the grid. You may get a typical one second drop out of power similar to switching a grid or you may get something closer to a lightning strike, especially if you are near the source of the pulse. Yes, satellites can be knocked out. There are enough air moledules in space for a high altitude (100 KM or more) to destroy the low-noise amplifiers in communication satellites and possibly overload and short-out the solar panels on larger satellites.

Trust me, this is big. Its premise is strong and the plotting moves as fast as the death pulse that gives the thriller its title. The characters were strong too. The criminals, cops and other participants in the drama seemed drawn from life and moreover seemed plucked right off the streets of New York City by the kind of artistic eye that knows the ways of the city from its brim to its dregs, and knows how to put that knowledge into convincing action prose. Also, despite its fantastic concept, the thriller makes me almost believe that something like the things it describes might actually happen one dark day. For now, though, it all makes a highly entertaining action caper novel.

Awesome! That's the only word I know that describes the impact of Death Pulse. Its speed-filled, twist-filled, turn-filled plot got me where I live, hitting home with the sudden impact of a fast-acting drug. If books by many another thriller author could be compared to pharmaceuticals they'd be downers. But if Death Pulse was something that you needed a prescription for, it would be a major UPPER. It would be like some kind of amphetamine. That's what it's like. You pop this hot blue pill and all of a sudden, practically before you can blink your eyes, it's got your pulse racing like crazy.

I want to report that in my humble opinion this is not just your average "take the money and run" thriller. This looks to me to very obviously be the kind of moving, uncompromising novel that's written because the author has an idea that has set him afire. That fire is not only contagious, it can't ever be faked. Try as some might, it just can't be done. You have to catch fire to spread fire. It's easy enough to tell the difference between a firebrand and a fizzle.

Take my word for it: Death Pulse is a genuine firebrand of a thriller.

This is action storytelling that's hard-hitting, fast-paced, loaded with wild stuff of every kind and chock full of all those wicked plotting gimmicks that made me shake my head and ask, HOW THE HELL DID HE FIGURE OUT ALL THIS INCREDIBLE STUFF?

Anyway, I loved it. And I'm EXTREMELY difficult to please. But this thriller writer is one exceptional and gifted author. So I say, more power to him. And I fairly guarantee more thrills per page to anybody who reads this exceptional novel.

A headline in today's newspaper telling of how police across the US report increasing violence as the economy deteriorates shows how easy the transition from order to chaos can become. All it takes is a disastrous event to unleash anarchy in the streets. This is the backdrop against which the action of Death Pulse unfolds with what I would describe as cold-blooded fury.

The thriller, which is solidly rooted in the best action storytelling tradition, breaks new ground by combining a very credible super-heist thriller theme with solid technothriller writing and doing a credible job with both when the plans for robbing the Federal Reserve Bank of New York coincide with a military space disaster that results in an unforeseen power failure that effects the entire Eastern seaboard. New York City is hard-hit and when the thin line separating civilization from anarchy is crossed the city becomes a battleground with the police outnumbered ten-to-one. According to what I've read elsewhere, including a very detailed commentary in one of the reviews here, this scenario could happen the way it was described in Death Pulse.

I feel strongly that this is a technothriller worth reading. I give it high marks all around.
