More About the Author
The first volume of the Distant Cousin series, the highly original tale of Ana Darcy that had been haunting him for twenty years, had to wait to be written down until after his retirement from teaching. Readers have followed the adventures of Ana's family in the four companion volumes to date: Distant Cousin: Repatriation, Distant Cousin: Reincarnation, Distant Cousin: Regeneration, and Distant Cousin: Recirculation.
Dr. Past lives on a ranch in south Texas with his wife (a journalist and retired professor of Spanish) and way more animals than is good for him.

Author Al Past revs up the action in this third installment of the Distant Cousin series. After seven years of quiet family bliss on the secluded Mendez homestead, hidden in the heart of New Mexico, Darcy once again sacrifices her retirement from public life in order to guard against disaster. As the very first representative from another planet on Earth, Darcy takes it personally to think that technology from her homeworld might be used against mankind. While dodging assassination attempts from hired mercenaries, Darcy plies a little detective work to identify the source of the threat: A Russian oligarch has developed the Thoman technology into a weapon which was promptly tested on remote villages in the tiny territory of Sedlakia, with horrifying results. The US government is loath to interfere, but that doesn't stop one little firebrand of a woman from planning a 2-man mission to save Sedlakia--and possibly the world.
Reincarnation reprises a multitude of characters from the first two books, including government agents, high-powered lawyers, an investigative reporter, and a certain Sicilian "businessman" who once saved Darcy's life.Read more ›
This isn't just another action novel. By now Ana is married, and the author cleverly juxtapositions her Thoman adventures with the family life she longs to share with her husband, Matt Mendez, and their twins. He and the kids manage to find a little adventure of their own, which regularly serves as a refreshing aside from the main story line. As usual, Past serves up delectable portraits of the cuisine in the various parts of the country where Ana finds herself, and his depiction of the landscape in diverse regions of the world gives the reader a genuine sense of presence. Flashbacks and unnecessary references to the two preceding Distant Cousin novels are kept to a minimum; thus, even readers who are unfamiliar with those works will find Distant Cousin: Reincarnation to be intriguing and captivating. Whether you are new to the universe of Ana Darcy and her friends, or are fortunate enough to have read Distant Cousin and Distant Cousin: Repatriation, this work holds a great deal of enjoyment in store for you.
Al Past has accomplished his mission once again. When is a movie production company going to bang down his door in Nowhere, South Texas, to make him an offer for the option on the whole Distant Cousin Series? There is no doubt that the series has a Spielbergian feel to it that cannot be denied. What'd I say? It's the feel good movie of the year and all those other movie trailer clichés. Distant Cousin: Reincarnation is one of those books whose plot and characters are so magically vivid that you cannot help but envision the movie in your head as you read.
As a book reviewer, I have read a lot of books. Just put my name in Google and you'll find many other reviews of Al Past's books, as well as those of other deserving authors. You can even read an interview with Mr. Past on one of my sites. When I review a book, I put it through the ringer.Read more ›
