This action adventure story hits the ground running and doesn't stop. This is a book that will catch your interest from the first page. The past and present storylines are both equally compelling. The characters are people that you would actually like to know ... I found myself caring about what might happen to them almost from the start. The dialogue is witty, smart and sometimes just down right funny.
I didn't want this book to end and was pleasantly surprised to see that another is on the way.

By the end of the first chapter, I was hooked, and didn't look at another book until I was done with this one (which is saying something, since I usually have 2-4 books going at a time). I enjoyed the descriptions, the dialogue, and the pacing -- I quickly felt immersed in the Tacoma of the book (and since I live near Tacoma, could readily recognize where things were happening). One of the things that make me really enjoy a story is when I can get lost in it -- and the day after finishing this one, I was wondering why I wasn't seeing anything in the news reports about what happened "yesterday" -- until I remembered that was just a good story I'd read.

There's a couple twists that caught me completely off-guard. If you like mystery/action, I'd definitely recommend this to you.

Nicholas Cross is a slacker--laying low in Tacoma, living off his savings and the odd job, successfully avoiding the specter of gainful employment. But when his best friend, security specialist Thomas Abelard, brings him onboard a freelance murder investigation that reveals a trail of broken corpses and treacherous politics, Nicholas will have no choice but to remember the man he used to be. And that man is not someone you'd want hunting you.

R. K. MacPherson uncovers his protagonist's past like a master chef gently peeling layers from an onion--but this onion has a tactical nuke at its center. Get ready for a fast-accelerating ride into high stakes and real consequences for Nicholas Cross and everyone he cares about. The afterword promises a sequel, and you can bet I'll be queuing up to buy it.

I'm often a hard sell for a new author. I tend to stick to names I've read before. However...Antigone's Fall took my breath away with the whirlwind tour of Puget Sound and the nearby neighborhoods! I am hooked and can't wait to see what happens next for Nicholas and Miranda. What a team! Military tactics, private eye stealth, and Pacific Northwest backdrop. Love it. I'm ready for Praetorian Agenda's release!

R. K. Macpherson, you have a new fan! Thank you!

Debut novels are easily missed, and almost as easily dismissed. Do yourself a favor and don't. Not this one.

MacPherson knows his craft. Though it starts slowly and sometimes seems to drag at first, characters that are both likable and flawed draw you in and keep you interested while the groundwork is laid. Don't be fooled - once the action starts, it grabs hold of you and never lets go. By chapter three I wanted answers; by chapter six, I *needed* them. By chapter nine, I wanted answers RIGHT NOW DAMMIT! Then, somewhere around chapter ten the pace goes from "driving" to "non-stop" - and stays there for the rest of the novel. The floor drops out and the roof opens up, showing you a plot of such scope you would swear MacPherson must have gotten it from some summer blockbuster movie. It's only when you reach the climax of all this nail-biting that you realize he had something far more creative than a typical Hollywood ending up his sleeve all along...something utterly unanticipated, refreshingly original, and disturbingly plausible.

Antigone's Fall is a great read and a remarkably well-researched work. The authenticity of the setting and especially the hardware shows the author really took care with his research. The military jargon and armed forces customs are spot-on, making the reader wonder exactly how much personal experience MacPherson has with the military. To judge simply from his work, one would guess it was extensive. Neither a harsh criticism nor a glowing recommendation, the author's take on the culture and personnel of the armed forces is balanced and even nuanced: cynical where it needs to be and pragmatic where it isn't. His admiration for those who truly serve their nation shines through at all levels. MacPherson pulls no punches, good or bad.
