I was looking forward to this book after reading the excellent reviews. I was hoping for a well-written mystery/thriller with dressage as the backdrop. The reviews promised interesting characters and an exciting plot. Unfortunately the book is very poorly written with awkward phrasing, formulaic characters and stilted dialogue. The plot is convoluted and under-developed, and the characters are one-dimensional stereotypes. The romantic subplot is embarassingly cliched and the characters' holocaust background is portrayed through cheap, sweeping sentiments that have little plausibility or human depth. I don't usually write reviews, especially negative ones, but this is just such a disappointment, especially after the book jacket references to Harper Lee and John Grisham. Very sad.

Format: Hardcover
Kirchborn by Kent C. Gilmore is a dark novel about an insidious international terrorist organization called "Kirchborn" that infiltrates its tendrils into prestigious corporations. Bret Roemer is a young New York attorney who finds himself falling in love with a beautiful woman named Claire, and getting caught in the crossroads of murder and domination as he must solve the enigma of Kirchborn, at terrible personal cost. Captivating and delightfully deceptive reading, Kirchborn is highly recommended for personal and community library contemporary fiction shelves.
