Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Brotherhood has just about everything that could make for a great movie: a good and noble businessman-turned-hostage, heroic cops working the case and evil terrorists...an adventure filled with both interesting characters and a plot that moves." - Marty Shaw for Reader Views

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging read January 31, 2011

It's not easy for an American author to deal with a topic like jihad, but Mr Stopa manages to keep direct anti-jihadi rhetoric in check. He does not make sweeping judgments on the jihadis, though he does favour the American point of view (nothing wrong with that).

The book is engaging and after a point I just didn't want to put it down. It's got a strong and suspenseful build-up and well-written climax, and you're always wondering what will happen next. However, I do wish there would have been some transition in the two lead characters (Hamilton and Mustafa), both stuck to their points of view, but neither identified with the other; instead, they just wondered why the other behaved in a particular manner.

Mr Stopa's wide experience in military/ intelligence is quite obvious when you read the book. However, he needs to refine his dialogues and narration. Some of the dialogues seem forced, and Mr Stopa sometimes writes sentences like "He was a good man..."

With some refinement and better editing, the book would have been a better read. Hope Mr Stopa takes care of this in his next book.

More About the Author

Hi! I'm Frank Stopa

Back in 1999, I wrote a successful workbook for business intelligence, law enforcement & sales training called The Human Skills: Debriefing, Interviewing & Elicitation. After a student of mine used my techniques and concepts to successfully question 5 different suspects in murder cases AND gain their full cooperation, I was motivated to publish the book. In 2010, I finally published The Human Skills: Elicitation & Interviewing. Law enforcement and business students ever since have been employing my techniques to improve their business performances and lives ever since!

In early 2011, I wrote The Human Skills: Elicitation & Interviewing, 2nd Edition, which is a new edition of The Human Skills including more techniques, as well as exercises for students. I published this edition for forensic psychology students at Argosy University in Orange County, CA.

In 2010 I published The Brotherhood, my first novel, a story of what happens when Jihad comes to America's shores. Also in 2010, I published another novel, The Long Winter: Intrigue at Valley Forge, a tale of espionage and skullduggery set amid the turmoil of America's most difficult time.
