Editorial Reviews


Alice Recker for Readers' Favorite
Rating: 5.0 stars
The book "Against the Current" is well-written. Brian L. MacLearn takes the reader on a painful journey from experiences received from the hands of a bully that extend well beyond childhood. Breathless throughout the narrative, one is led through well-described actions and characters that cause the reader to place all trust and faith in the victim. It is a story of survival, in spite of all odds, of the main character. MacLearn writes in a way that makes his point clear while the story flows easily from one segment to the next.

From the Back Cover

What begins as a story of constant abuse and the struggle tobreak free, turns into a psychological suspense thriller, as not all is what itseems. The victim is in some ways as calculating as the bully, and willing tosacrifice himself for the sake of others. The power hungry manipulator willstop at nothing to keep his power, and to keep his golden ticket from rising upagainst him.
One moment of bravery becomes the catalyst that ignites thewar of attrition. With the help of a kindred spirit, the victim realizes thatto break free from the tyranny of oppression, the bully has to be thoroughlystopped. A chess match of deathly proportions ensues within a thirty-six hourperiod that leaves several people dead and the two men facing each other in aclassic battle of, "to the death."
Against the Current answers the question of what happens ifthe bully is still in your life after twenty-five years and you've been pushedhard enough to fight back. The characters are rich and believable, true tothemselves. The setting is a mid-sized Iowa town. Evil comes in many forms andwears many faces. Against the Current explores the evil behind the need tomanipulate others, and the inner strength of goodness that compels some of usto stand up to that evil.
