Review

I've been aware of Wayne's versatility for years, so I was not surprised to learn that he had published The Quixotics. I found myself absorbed by the fast pace of the action and the quirkiness of the three main characters. I also noted a clever balance between the aggressiveness of the story and the softness of certain recurring descriptive passages. I definitely recommend The Quixotics.
- J E Keeley


I really enjoyed Falbey's "Sleeping Dogs", so progressed on to The Quixotics. This book has much less violence, a fairly tight story line, and I found Quixotics a very enjoyable a read. The Quixotics is a tale that could well have happened in today's world - whereas Sleeping Dogs is pure fiction. The book takes one through a number of events, culminating in a tiff with the Cuban Army. An easy story to follow, and I highly recommend the book!

About the Author

John Wayne Falbey is a modern Renaissance man: attorney, martial artist, real estate developer, triathlete, university educator, competitive cyclist, industry lecturer, downhill skier, author, and adventurer. He draws on these experiences and more to create novels in the thriller and action adventure genres. He is the author of the political thriller Sleeping Dogs: The Awakening, a novel of international intrigue and the first in a planned trilogy. His latest novel, The Quixotics, is an action adventure tale of gunrunning, insurgency, and intrigue in the Caribbean. Currently, he is working on the second book in the Sleeping Dogs trilogy: Endangered Species. 

His stories explore the human penchant for deception and lust for power on the one hand, and the lengths to which others will go in defense of liberty. 

He is one of the rarest of creatures: a native Floridian. When not traveling for business or pleasure, he and his wife live in Naples, Florida.

A well written and good story. May be a more interesting book for guys, but I found myself really caring about these crazy guys. Childhood friends who go to war together, find it hard to fit in again when they return from Vietnam. We see their struggles in how they handle their lives once home again. Disillusioned and unable to really fit in, they hook up again. Best friends who watch out for and balance each other in their struggle to function. Good guys to have on your side...do not cross them though!

John Wayne Falbey has written in my opinion an excellent thrilling adventure story, it is fast flowing, a real page turner.

The main characters portrayed are believable, there is a great deal of violence, but in this type of novel, not overly done. You could imagine your self under these circumstances and would have to do similar to survive.

I would recommend the reading of this book to readers of this genre, as a definite one to be remembered.

An adventure story doesn't require violence to be exciting. I skipped much of the book hoping there were some redeeming factors at the end. When some poor guy is killed by placing a stick of dynamite in his mouth ...well that blew up any hope I had of finding any value in the story. Maybe Stevens and Felicia will meet again, but I won't be reading about it. Cirrhosis will probably claim those sorry, haunted men's lives.

I read the book all the way through, which says something; I've abandoned a lot of books after only a few pages. But it never hooked me.
You might like it; it's reasonably well written, but somehow, the characters didn't compel me to keep reading.
That said, there's plenty of action in this one.
