Alton's relationship with Mallory is tested by danger and his own frustrations. Without regard for his own safety, Alton perseveres against tremendous odds and virtually unlimited powers pitted against him. He has developed the tenacity of a bulldog, relentless and unforgiving. All readers will root for the wounded warrior who feels that he must prove himself, time and time again.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable, slightly disturbing story by a well versed author. Understanding underscores every aspect of this exciting thriller mystery.
When the story opens, the main character, Captain Alton Blackwell, a skilled cryptologist and war hero, has been wounded in Afghanistan. Both his leg and his confidence have been shattered, the author tells us, and Alton must decide whether to leave the military or take a desk job where his skills are sorely needed. But a sudden event thrusts him into action, delaying his permanent decision. After the havoc wreaked by Al-Qaeda leaves civilians wounded and takes its toll on military personnel and operations, Alton meets Lieutenant Mallory Wilson the beautiful and brilliant female lead. Their scenes together, while devoid of passion, qualify as a love story which, while not trying to give away events at the end, has the dynamic of spilling into future books. But whatever their future holds, their friendship grows in this book and extends beyond their tour of duty into civilian life where together they attempt to uncover a dangerous conspiracy.
Nefarious was a real page turner. The scenes of conflict were brilliantly written with authentic detail and jargon, and I breathed the dust and felt danger of battle. I loved the bantering dialogue at Gandamak’s Lodge and I admired the tender relationship Captain Alton Blackwell had with some of the young Afghani civilians. I also liked how Steven Freeman wove two separate stories into one cohesive novel. But most of all I loved the characters, Alton and Mallory as well as the Afghani civilians who played such courageous roles in the story.
Steven F. Freeman weaves a thrilling tale of twisting intrigue with battle scenes that are brilliant and characters who stole my heart. If you long for well-written action with authentic detail, an adventure that will sweep you away, and lovable characters who agonize and fight and change, you will love Nefarious.
