Fast-paced and depressing. Stand-alone that is not always easy to follow. Brutal but no drag-you-down drama.
This story is about American students in Peru murdered, taken hostage, beaten, etc. It also focuses on the corruption of law enforcement in Peru.
Interesting storyline with descriptive, emotional writing. Believable characters with distinct personalities. There is some paranormal and spiritual activity.
I found myself skipping through some scenes in the book.
No desire re-read this story. I am interested in other works by this author.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written adventure book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great adventure movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

This was a book which kept drawing me back even though I constantly told myself that it really wasn't "my kind of book". Ultimately I just couldn't let it go, it really was compulsive reading.
A Peruvian army colonel wants to further his career, so he secretly encourages
rebels to massacre villages. What the rebels don't realize is that he intends to
then kill them, so becoming a "hero" and gaining promotion. The rebels kidnap a
group of mature students, including several indians from the various tribes.
The students know they have to escape before they are killed. The army colonel
cannot afford to let them leave Peru as they are potential witnesses, so the students are
between "the devil and the deep".
Tara is one of the students and her grandfather, Bluefeathers, is the Tribal Chairman on
a reservation in Oregon. He is prepared to do anything to get Tara and the others home
alive. He sends Martin Andrews, the white Chief of Police on the reservation, and others to
The book rattled on at a great pace, sometimes with the students fighting in Peru, and
other times with Martin and his group, or with Bluefeathers trying to negotiate with a
disinterested US government.
There was no bad language or sex scenes and I really enjoyed the book. I have Cold River Resurrection
on my Kindle now and will read and review that some time. I hope it is as good as this one.
However, I don't think the Peruvian Tourist Board will be too happy with the book!
I did expect the American agent at the beginning to get involved, being local he must have known something about what was happening. Also, no further mention of the climbers? Our protagonists did seem to bond with them to a degree so that is a lose end that could have been tied off.
All in all, very enjoyable, finished in one sitting.
Loved the character of Bluefeathers and the strength, wisdom and courage he showed in the things he had to do for his people. I was hooked from the first page, well-written too.
