Editorial Reviews

Review

An action-packed political thriller that rotates between multiple characters and their dark, dangerous worlds.
In Knedgen's debut novel, U.S. politics are a means to achieve world domination by any means necessary. This includes drugging a young woman named Kim into wooing high-level politicians into bed, where she ultimately kills them. The goal is to eliminate the competition so that the power-hungry overlords win the presidential election and commence their reign of control through the media, in wars, regulations and more. However, the drugs' effects start to wear off, and memories of Kim's victims begin to haunt her. The impact of these flashbacks debilitates Kim and causes her to question everything. If it weren't for Street and Angie, who help her put the pieces of the puzzle together, Kim would be lost for good. These intriguing, well-developed characters have a surprising number of layers to them. In particular, Street, who spends his days hustling on the street corner, works hard to maintain his tough facade, but his soft underbelly reveals itself when it comes to his Grandma Mae. However, the depth of conspiracy in the political turmoil can be hard to digest since there are an implausible number of bad guys with corrupt agendas. In addition, the story is at times unnecessarily violent. In the first chapter, for example, a brutal scene of a woman being attacked is foisted upon the reader. While the blunt impact of this opening was perhaps meant to act as a lure, it ultimately feels more like an assault on the senses.
An intriguing ride through the bumpy landscape of U.S. politics, with a healthy dose of deception and corruption.
-Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

D.J. Knedgen is a concerned citizen of the world and a medical professional with many hobbies and interests, among them a passion for politics and for writing fiction.

Her debut novel -- The Chimera Collusion, a thriller about a young woman coerced into being a pawn in an audacious political conspiracy -- is the natural outcome of both.

D.J.'s current work in progress -- The Chains Protocol -- like its predecessor, focuses on the message of personal freedom and liberty, as well as the dangers of apathy, in an entertaining way. (She figures that if she can save just one person, it'll be worth it. Wink, wink.) She's a fan of action-packed suspense sprinkled with healthy doses of sex, violence, and twists and turns and she writes the same way.

With unpublished manuscripts piling up in her computer, many ask why she bothers. The answer comes easily. She considers it great fun to be able to lie outrightly and outrageously; to place others in unthinkable situations; to malign someone mercilessly; and to hold power over life and death. What could possibly be better than that?

Born and raised in Michigan, she currently loves life with her longtime boyfriend in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada. When not working, writing, reading, and visiting children and grandson scattered hither and yon, she likes to travel and hone her skills as a photorealism artist.
