From the Author
Enter Damian Stockwell. He's been called Indiana Jones meets the Tick and part Doc Savage, part Frank Drebin but he is all hero. He is a champion of good. He is a force for right. And he is more dependent on his loyal valet than he would ever admit.
The Bulletproof Adventures of Damian Stockwell have all the intrigue, adventure and action from the same time period as the old pulps, but Dam is far from perfect. Though he would hardly acknowledge that.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first picked up Horror in Honduras, but I was expecting humor as I have read other things by Benjamin Wallace and he never fails to deliver a laugh. And a laugh I got. Benjamin Wallace did not fail in delivering his usual humor and did a great job of bringing Damian Stockwell, the over the top, super genius to life.
I am a big fan of action and adventure in both my movies and books, these type of books are so easy to get lost in, as you imagine yourself as being one of the heroes in the tale. Though I am no super genius and no master fighter, I couldn't help but imagine myself in the tale of Damian Stockwell. Who wouldn't love to be a kick butt genius? I know I would.
Damian is one of those characters that despite being one of the richest men alive, a genius and force to be reckoned with, manages to stay a down-to-earth gentleman who is also a loyal and dedicated friend. In Horror in Honduras, Damian is fighting to save a friend who has gone missing in Central America, and he will put every resource he has attempting to save his life. Of course he get's the shock of a lifetime once he finds his friend and is forced to see things a little differently (I would tell you what that is, but then I would just give things away, and that wouldn't be fair). As you follow Damian in his adventure you also get to meet his loyal valet and sidekick Bertrand.
These two characters have a wonderful and natural relationship with each other, often times reminding me of brothers. They banter back and forth and the two of them are often found in the center of a great tale, fight, or humorous conversation.
There were times when I felt that the story was a little too over the top, but every time those thoughts crept into my mind Damian went into kick butt mode and my over the top thoughts fluttered away on wings of a bird. At first things seemed almost unbelievable, but as the tale unfolded I discovered as did Damian, that there was more to the story than met the eye. Damian is a bigger than life character, with bigger than life attributes, it is amazing that Benjamin Wallace managed to keep him contained in the book!
Horror in Honduras was a fun adventure that sweeps you away and delivers you to a world where anything is possible, especially if you are Damian Stockwell. If you are looking for that next great adventure tale or are a fan of Dirk Pitt, than you should definitely pick up Horror in Honduras and venture through the world of Damian Stockwell!
The peril Damian faces in this book is unique and engrossing, and the various ways he manages to come out victorious against his would-be assassins are the product of an exceedingly creative mind. The fight scenes, of which there are many, are consistently fun and surprising.
The humor/action dichotemy is an incredibly difficult style to pull off, and Wallace pulls off their pairing nicely and with immensely enjoyable style. He's a talented writer and an enthralling storyteller, and I'm looking forward to reading more of Damian's Bulletproof Adventures.
