5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Thriller!, February 21, 2010

This review is from: Counsel of the Wicked (Perfect Paperback)
Roberto Kusminsky has produced a real thriller, set in two great places, one familiar to Americans and one not so familiar. The familiar setting is the greatest city in the world, New York, the haunt of Kusminsky's surgeon-SEAL hero and his geneticist girlfriend who, by the way, is as hot and brainy as one would expect for such a super guy. The not-so-familiar place is Argentina, a beautiful and gifted nation which boasts a city, Buenos Aires, that could have been the best in the world if it weren't for generations of poor leadership. One of those poor leaders was Juan Peron, who as Argentina's president sought fleeing Nazis as avidly as hookers seek johns. And that provides the gripping historical backdrop of this story.

Anyone who's into mystery and adventure stories will love this book. It's easy reading, with short chapters and action that moves quickly, and is good bedtime reading for people who have enough self-discipline to put the book down when it's time to go to sleep. Also, its setting in Argentina should make it especially interesting to many people, since Argentina is a place that most of us never think about...it's somewhere down there in the vast unknown below Mexico.

My only criticism of the book is one of format...it would have been helpful to use a more obvious visual signal when scenes switch...like the little symbols used in some books, or perhaps a little more space between the transitional paragraphs. It sometimes took me a sentence or two to realize that the scene had changed from that of the previous paragraphs.

And one more thing...I was disappointed that the hero and heroine didn't do the tango when in Argentina. Sure, they were being chased by a bunch of bloodthirsty Nazi's, but how could they go to Argentina and not tango? Hopefully in the sequel the hero and heroine will take tango lessons (or, more characteristically, win a tango contest).
