The word "heart" applies here as well--the author puts together a current, relevant storyline about a hero who cares; a protagonist who is willing to risk everything he is for the sake of his friends, his family, and his country. Tom Gray is a hero you will believe in!
Bravo, Alan McDermott. You've got me awaiting your next effort with high anticipation! Read this outstanding first novel; you won't be disappointed!
much of the personal value of this book came gradually, after I had finished it, and spent some time considering it. The very fact that it led me to thinking and examination indicated to me that I had found something of more depth than I first realized, and that would be enough for me to recommend it.
I do not intend to discuss the author's expressed opinions, nor do I wish to debate their merit. What I do want to do is look at how those ideas are expressed, and how well the author uses the format of fiction to do so. The author's writing style lends itself nicely to action fiction. He is able, in one or 2 sentences to both tell what is happening in a completely understandable way, and convey other descriptive information concerning setting and characters without missing one flying bullet, and that requires tight discipline and discernment. The words seem to race off the page ...but I doubt seriously that they raced on to the page; they are too well crafted to have been done by impulse or in haste. While the characterizations are developed only to the extent that they need to be to compliment the action, we are given enough to get a very good idea of who the people in this story are, and why they do what they do, and react in the ways that they do. Sometimes, one critical trait or character flaw can speak volumes, and again, the author uses this technique very well.
I admit that I didn't see how the plot would unfold, and, while sometimes I found the "message" a bit heavy handed, I couldn't see any other way the author could have unfolded his plot; one that turned out to be stunningly surprising, and worked out with near brilliance. All in all, this extremely fast paced action novel is satisfying on many levels, and dismissing it as "another action thriller"would do a disservice to both author and reader. I decided, despite my initial reaction to buy the next book, and I look forward to reading it.
The writing was good, with very few editing issues. At times there was too much detail, distracting from the flow of the storyline. Parts weren't very plausible, but it IS a work of fiction.
This is not one I would reread. It did keep my interest to the end--especially due to a sudden twist! If you enjoy a vigilante tale, this book is good, but not on my favorites list.
It's time to pay! Tom is a mastermind, and with the help of some of his former colleagues, prepares to take the law into his own hands. They kidnap repeat offenders - including the one that killed his son - and hold court in a remote location. Tom and his team use the skills they've developed over time to set-up a highly defended perimeter; one that will neutralize modern spy gadgets and protect him from invading forces. Using the internet, Tom solicits the support from people all around the country. Court will be held...the records of the kidnapped felons will be read...the people will then vote if they are to live or die!
Meanwhile, while this saga continues to play out, the government is trying everything to put a stop to this madness. The public has voted to kill the first prisoner - the same one that had killed Tom's son. Will he execute the man live on the internet? Time is running out!
What nobody else realizes is that this distraction has opened the door for a real terrorist attack on the U.K. - one that will kill millions. You'll have to read the book to see how this all plays out. I have to warn you though, you may lose sleep trying to get through this one. Great Job Mr. McDermett!
