Hilsman gets the political-thriller formula almost perfect..punchy chapters, a myriad of secretive characters, a dynamic hero, a canyon of exotic locales and verbal jousting that ultimately provides the fuel that keeps one reading.

From the Back Cover

Standing on a windy bluff on the northern border of Israel, televangelist Matthew Vaughn is broadcasting to an audience of millions when he is kidnapped by guerillas from a mysterious terrorist cell.  Veteran CIA operative Grant Stearns is thrown into the hunt for the captive preacher, a chase that leads from the deserts of Syria to a remote coastal resort in Albania.  But Stearns' biggest challenge is not only to rescue Vaughn, but to battle the forces in Washington and the Middle East - a renegade Homeland Security Secretary in league with an ambitious Israeli Defense Minister - who want to exploit the kidnapping for their own political purposes, even if it means provoking a full-scale war.

Format: Hardcover
Mr. Hilsman can write, no mistake about that. However, there is more to bringing a book to the readers than just the writing. A good line editor would have done much to improve this self-published novel. The punctuation is erratic and the format is sometimes hard to figure. Next time, maybe he should take the traditional path to publishing, through a good publishing house with good editors. He could start by hooking up with a good literary agent.
Going it alone wasn't a very good idea.

Author, Hoyt Hillsman clearly has thought through and researched the Israeli/Arab conflict which he uses as the backdrop for this fictional political espionage.
"19 Angels" is a fun read and "page-turner" with great characters, and places; yet Hillsman manages with intelligence and understanding to touch all the finer points surrounding this real-life unresolved conflict.

Hilsman has done a great job keeping you in the middle of the action with concise real time chapters and looking for the next plot twist. This is "24" in a hardcover, move over Jack Bauer. You don't want to put it down until you reach the thrilling conclusion.

I loved this book. It was a great political thriller and had me up way past my bedtime to read it. It shows a lot of insight into the political process as well as human nature.

Format: Hardcover
An evangelist preacher is kidnapped while visiting Israel by a rogue group that no one can pinpoint. The reasons why come later, but through most of "Nineteen Angels", the narrative suspense builds as the author creates a maze of behind-the-scenes maneuvering, both within our government and Israel's.

Hilsman gets the political-thriller formula almost perfect, providing a wealth of background--touching on historical events, cultural idiosyncrasies, friction within ruling factions and religious debate--all smoothly interspersed within the story. Add to that already dynamic mix: short, punchy chapters, a myriad of secretive characters, a dynamic hero, a canyon of exotic locales and verbal jousting between protagonists that ultimately provides the fuel that keeps one reading.

Hilsman's style is more reportage than literary and there's a surprising lack of violence which some may find a detriment in this genre. I didn't. While the numerous characters sometimes got confusing, this is a small criticism when seen in relation to the overall effort.
