Having established his identity as an author who manages fiction touched with wizardry in his successful first novel, the author now steps in to the arena of espionage stories, creating an ongoing primary character for the series - Tom Stiles – who becomes completely credible. His personality is established in the first few pages – ‘Lightning speared through the worn blinds of the Motel Voyager. Tom Stiles fastened his Jaeger-LeCoultre around his wrist, his face pulsing between the light and dark. Rain plunged down outside… A sheet of what looked like lightning illuminated the entire crossroads and shocked Tom into pressing the brakes even harder as he waited for the lights to turn green. Tires screeched behind him. Suddenly his body jolted forward, and he air bag exploded in his face. Pain seared through him. And then there was no horizon lights, no road, no car, nothing except pain from his spine to his fingertips and a sense of helpless, unbidden flying as if he had entered a recurring dream. The car seemed to gather him back in. A wheel rolled past the driver side window. Then, darkness.’ And that degree of suspense pervades this new novel.
The plot is outlined by the author’s synopsis – ‘Former black ops agent Tom Stiles is about to face the most personal - and deadly - appointment of his career. Returning to be with his partner and twin daughters, Stiles finally has a shot at a normal life. But soon, death wraps its claws around his life once more, as a member of the Chechen Mafia is demanding a dangerous favor from him. Trying to balance his new responsibilities and protect those he holds dear, Stiles is drawn in to a criminal syndicate with links to international terrorism. But does he still have what it takes to finish the job, and make it out alive?’
Having created a strong principle character, one that keeps the reader involved throughout, this initial volume appears well prepared to continue with further fine espionage thrillers. Watch the author grow! Grady Harp, March 21
As advertised black ops: Zulu was in fact a thriller. The pace was very very fast and for me it was a one day recess.
Although not a perfect book it was very enjoyable. I thought the beginning took off like a rocket. It sort of slowed down in the middle but then regained its momentum towards the end.
Characters are well written. I particularly liked Tom Stiles He was someone I could relate to.
Enjoyed the book and recommend it to everyone.
