More About the Author
I'd threatened to write for a long time, but never plucked up the courage to do so. Then, finally, I embraced it. I love to write, I really do. I've read about some authors who consider writing to be the most tedious part of being an author. Not me, I love that burst of creativity that comes after ten or so minutes.
In terms of authors I admire, they would be Conn Iggulden, Robert Harris, Wilbur Smith and Thomas Harris. I love the darkness of the Hannibal Lecter series, and the fact that regardless of what he does, Hannibal still remains likeable.
Currently, I have two books from The Auslander Series complete, The End and Occupation. There is a third to follow. I have also written, and will soon publish, a YA book. Thanks for reading!

An interesting concept with good strong characters I hope the whole series comes on the free books section although I am sure they will be worth buying.
The story opens in 1965 in Mexico with a Prologue to the main story and then moves into the current day. There are several threads to follow both in England and America which although seemingly unrelated, lead the reader towards the conclusion of the book.
The characters in this novel are very well developed, especially Detective Jack Sumner, who is down to earth with a good sense of humour. The dialogue between Jack and his partner Smithy is particularly well written, giving the reader an excellent view of their relationship and insight into their respective characters.
Throughout the story, the author maintains the suspense, and although light is shed on various situations, the full story isn't revealed until the very end of the book.
This is an exception novel from a debut author and I look forward to the next book in the trilogy which is due out later this year.
The author has been reading Jo Nesbo who I am a great fan of, and I will now read Conn Iggulden because of his recommendation.
Well done, Dave Lacey, I cannot praise this book highly enough.
The mystery is introduced at the beginning of the book, wherein the discovery of a beautiful codex on an abandoned airstrip east of Nuevo Tortuguero, Mexico sparks a series of murders. The middle of the book follows detective Jack Sumner and his sidekick Smithy as they attempt to fit together the puzzle pieces of these bizarre and inexplicable killings, which are somehow linked to the US government.
I was particularly impressed by the concluding chapters, in which Lacey skillfully ties together the disparate plot elements, and ultimately leaves the reader on tenterhooks.

A well-told tale with much intrigue. It contained a mysterious tale that included international entities. The story held my interest throughout and kept me on the edge.Published 22 months ago by Amazon Customer

Good character development and fascinating plot potential. Will read next book which should be out soon. The End moves along quite nicely.Published on November 24, 2013 by Richard A Ailes
I enjoyed this mind-bending story, although it took me a while to disentangle the plot strands.
