I didn't want this book to end and was pleasantly surprised to see that another is on the way.
There's a couple twists that caught me completely off-guard. If you like mystery/action, I'd definitely recommend this to 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.
R. K. Macpherson, you have a new fan! Thank you!
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.Read more ›
