Joe attends the funeral of his 1972 Peace Corps pal; reflecting back to the idealism they and Pedro "Pete" Donovan made pragmatic with a heist. However, Joe soon realizes that the so called accident was a murder message intended to warn him about his senate run and the robbery that still funds a small town. He knows he can quit the race, but like his two Peace Corps compadres, Joe will not give up because of a threat; instead he plans to confront his unknown adversaries.
ORINOCO is an interesting political thriller as Joe learns the senate plays hard ball with mavericks. The action-packed story line is fast-paced although readers will be hard pressed to accept fifty years old Joe as an action hero. Still he is fun to follow and his political positions enlightening in probably the only state willing to elect a true independent (Bernie Sanders; Joe Lieberman remains a democrat). James A. Ciullo provides a twisting tale in which the past haunts the future.
I was not disappointed. In less than two days, I finished this finely-crafted novel. I couldn't put the book down. Fast-paced, suspenseful, and full of twists and turns, I found myself eagerly awaiting each chapter. The plot is thick with intrigue and the characters are well-developed. I recommend ORINOCO to any reader who enjoys suspense and "edge-of-seat" action.
