5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book 3 of the Sokolov Saga, April 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the third page-turning story of intrigue and espionage by Ian Kharitonov. The Sokolov brothers return from The Russian Renaissance and the Collaborator to solve an action-packed mystery with global consequences. The action is vivid with a perfect pace. The suspense builds from start to finish, the characters are likable or deplorable–whichever fits their role, and the plot is unforgettable as Eugene Sokolov tries to stop his nation’s corrupt power brokers from plunging Russia into a violence-fueled era of worldwide isolation.

Somehow, the author weaves a history lesson into the story at appropriate times to advance the action, and it left me hungry to learn more about Russia’s past, especially its Church. As with all of Ian Kharitonov’s novels, I recommend this to anyone who enjoys complex, fast-paced action thrillers. You can start with this one and then go back, or you can pick up one of its prequels.Either way, I recommend getting into this series.

It started with an interesting and educating premise, but then it meandered and fizzled.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crucial Reading, April 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Theology and Sanity (Paperback)
This is the most thoughtful, complete, and relevant book on humanity's fate I've read. It's a must-read, but it's slow reading due to the need to absorb its teaching. The language is more difficult than it needed to be, with correct but unusual grammar structures, which slows the reading more than the subject requires. The Kindle version had typos, such as periods and question marks injected in random places. This is hard to read but worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, Authoritative, Unforgettable, February 17, 2016
This review is from: The Locker (Kindle Edition)
The premise alone accounts for the first four stars. A God-fearing, retired Marine accidentally acquires a ton of cash from drug lords, setting off a private war between the cartel and a brotherhood of former Special Forces warriors. Vibrant, believable, and memorable characters enter a battle in which surrender, retreat, or mercy are not options. Written with authority, the story clicks with pace and turns in unexpected but exciting directions. This is unforgettable, heart-pounding drama.

This review is from: The Rite (Amazon Video)
This is an accurate portrayal of the Rite of Exorcism based upon the books I've read. It's the right level of drama for the rite, keeping its focus on Catholic doctrine while educating through entertainment. Great acting by Mr. Hopkins, as usual, and a plot with interesting characters. Though not based upon the real life character, the young exorcist's journey of doubt and faith added a necessary edge to the intrigue.

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.
