From the Back Cover

A German U-boat lost in the final days of the Second World War rested silent and dead in the deep waters off the Russian coast for more than half a century—carrying a cargo too terrifying to contemplate.

Now it has been found and its terrible treasure liberated . . . by those who would set the world on fire.

A remote viewer working in top secret for the U.S. government, October Guinness can "see" events occurring on the other side of the globe. But she and her loose cannon partner, CIA agent Jax Alexander—who questions the validity of Tobie's "gift"—have arrived too late to prevent a bloodbath . . . and perhaps the Apocalypse as well. Now every second brings the unthinkable a step closer—and places Tobie and Jax in the gunsights of powerful enemies in frighteningly high places—as they race to connect the dots between an impending catastrophe and a nightmare cultivated decades earlier by Nazi scientists with an evil agenda about to become all too real …

The first book in this series, The Archangel Project"The Archangel Project," was a wonderfully evocative and addictive thriller set in New Orleans. Written by authors who knew the city intimately, it succeeded in using the city's neighborhoods and museums to give life to an exciting mix of spies, terrorists, bureaucrats, the paranormal, and the city's problems after Hurricane Katrina. It grabbed you and kept hold of you until the last page.

I was therefore eagerly awaiting the second book in the series and I was not disappointed. Although not set in New Orleans, it continues and expands upon the same mix of secret agents and paranormal powers. This time, Nazis, lost German submarines, and the fall of the Soviet Union are thrown into the mix, giving the story an international scope and exciting, exotic feel.

In a manner slightly suggestive of Dan Brown, the authors base much of their work on real events. Additionally, the authors mine their personal experience in military intelligence and in writing historical mysteries. When they add fictional elements to the story, they create a book so rooted in reality that you want to believe it's true.

It's a great read and I eagerly await the next one in the series.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I love reading about historical events and places that's mixed in with fiction. It makes the characters more real and helps me "see" what's happening! LOL Read the book and you'll understand what I mean about "seeing". :)

I'm not a fan of paranormal fiction, or at least I've always thought I wasn't. I'm not sure remove viewing counts as paranormal, but since it is a psychic phenomenon it probably does. However, this novel by C.S. Graham, the pseudonym for Steven Harris and Candice Proctor, is an excellent thriller by any measure, with remote viewing playing a relatively minor role.

The writing is crisp and sophisticated, with vivid descriptions and deft narrative. The plot is ingenious, and the settings in Kaliningrad, Germany, Beirut and the U.S. are all brought to life. One of the most winning aspects is the banter between October Guinness and her sometime partner Jax Alexander, which, perhaps because it is a husband-and-wife writing team, manages to convey some real chemistry between the two.

I don't usually like to cast the characters of a book with real actors, but by coincidence I happen to be catching up on two series with actors that would be ideal for the main roles. Tobie is easy to imagine as Mireille Enos, the diminutive strawberry blonde from "The Killing," while Matt Passmore from "The Glades" has the laconic insouciance to play Jax.

The authors are great at instilling sympathy for the good guys -- you really care about Tobie and Jax and Stefan, the young Russian kid who is an important witness to help our heroes unravel the plot, which involves a deadly cargo recovered from a sunken World War II German submarine -- the Sword of Solomon that gives the book its title. The villains, by contrast, are two-dimensional and hard to take seriously. Relying on Nazi evil is a little shopworn for a modern thriller, but the authors find a novel twist to freshen it up. The depiction of a post-Cold War rivalry with Russia is more original.

After reading "The Archangel Project," I was looking for the next book in the series "The Deadlight Connection," a teaser chapter of which was included in "Archangel". I couldn't find "Deadlight"- finally discovered that "The Solomon Effect" was the next book in the series! I don't know what prompted the title change, and I never saw a clear connection to Solomon and the events described in the book.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed "Solomon". I like the central characters and the sense of the "small world" of international intrigue. I also enjoy the notes included at the end for further research, detailing what features in the book are based on real events, activities and groups.

First and foremost this series is thriller oriented. The fact that one of the main characters is on the psychic/remote viewer end of the spectrum matters, but it is not the main focus. At least not for both characters, because these books are quite split between the two main characters. The story weaves between them individually and together in a very pleasant dance. Recommended

Another "viewer' page turner for everyone who enjoyed the Archangel Project. This time the Russians and just about everyone else get on board for the ride. Jax wishes he were somewhere else and Tobie keeps showing him she's a force to reckoned with. This is a well paced, well researched albeit low key thriller, what's not to like? Go on, you know you want to...read it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced mystery. It's horrifying to think what humans can do and have done to each other, and how alive vicious hatred and bigotry can be. In the vein of the Bourne movies with the intrigue of a Dan Brown novel, this book soars. In the afterword, I enjoyed learning what is fiction versus fact. Great writing.
