About the Author

My thirty years of adventure and experiences living and working in the Far East gives me the voice of authority in my writings of Asian business and crime, and how the two are considered one in the same.I was immediately struck as a young man of the Oriental's obsession with power and greed, gambling and sex, and the need to win at any cost. Their driving force of "Face", and the life threatening humiliation of losing it. I have spent my share of time in little known back-water ports around Asia, learning and applying the rules of the East; knowing when a business deal is done, when to run, believe only half of what you see, and nothing of what you are told; survival goes in the plus column.

Fifteen years ago I bought a small place in the Florida Keys. This was meant to be a vacation home, a place to get away from the madness of Asia and to dodge a few unsavory ruffians from Macau that I beat at a few fast hands of Fan Tan. Well, within six months I had sold my California place, subleased my Hong Kong flat and was living the island life of a "Conch." Always an avid SCUBA diver,I spend my time diving my way around the Caribbean, searching for gold doubloons and pieces of eight. At home, now on Florida's Emerald Coast, I spend my time writing Adventure Thrillers. Stories of lost honor, stolen money, danger coming at you like a tracer round; where the good guy doesn't always win, and the bad guy isn't always who you think he is.

Five Stars all the way, from the first chapter to the last. Part techno, part voodoo, part murder...all action. Another great thriller from Pettit. We need to see more from this guy.

An excellent mix of voodoo and techno with a twisting plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. Pettit's use of colloquialisms and dialects is excellent. This made the characters pop out and gave depth to the story. RATED ....FIVE VOODOO DRUMS.

the series is very good. broad strokes in characterization. the details are well researched and topical. i hope the series continues. the only problem is that there are more spelling errors than a sixth grade term paper

I stumbled across this novel while looking for something new and different from the standard fluff by the famous authors. WOW! Did I find a new Hero. The Caribbean backdrop with all the local characters involved from Key West to jamaica was great fun. The story was suspenseful with enough action for any one to enjoy. I recommend this to all thriller readers.

Fair story line. Part of the plot is too unrealistic. It also probably isn't necessary for the author to remind everyone of John Locke's inprobable relationship with the premier of China every ten pages or so. Author also needs to hire a proof-reader, my spelling was better in the 6th grade.

Yes, plotting and plot development, character development, dialogue are all good. As an audio book I would have no complaints at all. Well, maybe one. The author feels it is necessary to explain every foreign phrase, every acronym, and every use of initials immediately after it is used. This wouldn't be so bad except that he does it even in dialogue and without ever setting the explanation off with parenthesis. The flow of the story would be better served if he used an index of foreign words, acronyms, initials. Or simply footnotes could serve the same purpose. But I would think that a real wordsmith would find a way of incorporating the explanation within the storyline, itself. For instance, when speaking of a command post and wanting to use the letters CP an author should be able to use a device similar to having having someone ask where the command post will be and someone else answers that the CP will be in a certain location. Problem solved The readers don't have such short memories that they won't remember what a CP is. The use of homonyms would go unnoticed in audio books, but is very distracting to a reader. Instances in this book; isle for aisle, since for sense, coordinance for coordinates, and the almost word synch for cinch. (That is not meant to be an all-inclusive list.) Also, the indiscriminate use of commas serves only to break the flow of the story when a well-placed comma should actually enhance understanding.

Artistically, a well-told story; an "A" or better. As to the mechanics of writing, given the level of word usage, punctuation, etc, I'd be hard pressed to give it a passing mark. Overall, an OK.

My new favorite chapter in Pettit's John Locke suspense series; the characters, conversations and action culminate into non-stop suspense, just to be over-shadowed by the climax of the story. Loved it!!!
