5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and Memorable, August 7, 2015
WMD is filled with deep intrigue, dynamic characters, and a strong pace. You'll be left wondering where fact ends and fiction begins, and you'll be praying that the blurry line separating them leans towards the former. This is a crafty and well-researched story that will have you flipping pages and reflecting upon its intricate web of action and reactions. Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quest for Love, Fortune, and Freedom, May 31, 2015
Two young adults who share a common heritage but disparate backgrounds jockey for position around their imbalanced or 'mismatched' romance. Struggles with class boundaries, deceit, poverty, educational stresses, immigration to America, and the harsh economics that govern the Chaldean demands of courtship and marriage set the stage for a thought-provoking journey centered around the rich and unique Iraqi Christian culture.

The subtle complexities of interpersonal relations unfold as a young man seeks the promise of fortune and freedom in America. When love surprises him, it makes marriage his top priority. The Chaldean culture places huge obstacles in his way, such as allowing his would-be wife to finish her education, leveraging ties to distant family to access jobs, and proving to relatives that he is marrying for love and not for a free ticket to the United States. His would-be wife's questionable commitment compounds the complexities.

The Mismatched Braid uses laser-guided perception of the emotions governing countless interactions to craft a suspenseful story. If you enjoy a well-written, correctly paced social adventure, check out this book. And if you at all interested in familiarizing yourself with Iraqi Chaldeans, this book is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars High-stakes Submarine Adventure, March 28, 2015
Operation Golden Dawn is an enjoyable adventure written by the ultimate authority – a former commanding officer of a nuclear submarine.

A standout quality of this novel is its lofty stakes. The reach of torpedoes and missiles usually limit a submarine’s influence, but the author adds the dimension of a SEAL team that tackles an island-based threat with global implications – a weaponized pathogen. One misstep in anti-surface, anti-submarine, land-attack, communications, or SEAL deployment condemns the world to biological genocide. The premise is clever, and it sets the stage for a complex and engaging plot.

Compounding the drama are complicating elements such as a hero facing personal demons while squeezing every shred of lethality from his submarine and his crew, a security breech leading to a counter-attack on American soil, and a race against time before the pathogen escapes.

George Wallace crafts a witty, intricate tale of intrigue and action with memorable characters and satisfying resolutions to all conflicts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stalin is back and the stakes are as high as ever, October 1, 2014
This review is from: Angel City Blues (Kindle Edition)
Jeff Edwards may be known for his Sea Warrior series where he crafts exciting naval adventures. However, now that Dome City Blues and Angel City Blues are in print, he'll soon be known for futuristic mystery thrillers. Dome City Blues was a work of art, and Angel City Blues is another masterpiece and a worthy sequel.

As with Dome City Blues, Edwards shows us his skill in creating intrigue in Angel City Blues. Science fiction is his ideal genre because it allows him to extend and exercise his powerful imagination, and Angel City delivers with an engaging plot, wild settings, and memorable characters.

If you like mystery thrillers or science fiction where the technology is central to the story, you'll enjoy Edwards' latest effort. I recommend starting with Dome City Blues and then reading Angel City Blues, although it's okay to read them in reverse order.
