Exceptionally written, thought provoking, and a diabolical novel that keeps you needing to know...
populate the story. A good tale well told is, of course essential.
But to me, just as essential is good company. Avid readers will agree
I think, that good characters will stay with you for a long time. They
become like old friends.
Any thriller requires a certain suspension of belief. This is one reason
I enjoy reading them. An escape to somewhere where someone is having a
worse day than I am! Or just a spirited romp through a place I will never
see, in circumstances I hope to never experience. But, I do like to be in
good company. Will Dresser provides this
Wes Franklin, Rouzbeh Aryana, and Ashley "AJ" Jordan are allies in the
fight against evil, not just here in the United States, but around the world.
They are a finely tuned machine, but also share an abiding love and loyalty.
We learn that Aryana has already nearly given his life for his friend Wes, actually
taking a bullet meant for the other man. Wes and AJ are not only partners in the
avocation they share, but they are kindred spirits and lovers.
Books about terror and terrorists are a dime a dozen these days. This one has its
share of terrorists, and a cool breeze of politics blows through. Sometimes cool
enough to send a chill down your spine.
Dressers book is a thriller, but it is so much more. Wes is far from average,
and this shows in everything he attempts in both this book, and the second book
in the Wes Franklin series, The Methuselah Man.
I strongly recommend this fast paced book book. But when you finish reading it, do yourself
a favor and read The Methuselah Man. You will meet the team from this book, in an even more
fascinating and electrifying adventure. I look forward to book three in this series.
Wes is first contacted by his friends in The Netherlands who are part of the Hauge and specifically part of a unique group of people keeping an eye on terrorism. One of their members has died, a friend of Wes's, but also he is a member of The Cloister of Akhenaten. As Wes goes to The Netherlands for the funeral he is brought face to face with the situation of his other friends also dying.
It turns out that there is a group of Syrian businessmen, terrorist, who are working on a way to literally scare people to death! They plan on putting their drug into the food supply and thus manipulating the "fears" of people and causing mass hysteria that will force governments to do things they wouldn't normally due. Their hope is to bring about revolution amongst the populace that will bring down the major governments of Europe and eventually the United States.
But they have taken on a task first to eliminate The Cloister of Athenaken. The question is why? But the further question is, can Wes and his friends stop them before they unleash their drug on the world?
The writing is excellent and the suspense will build as you get into the story. Dr. Franklin and his group of 'hero's' will again have to perform extraordinary detective work and stop the terrorist before they can strike.
What I really enjoyed about the book was the fact that Will Dresser also has Muslim characters in the book who are not terrorist, but are Godly, moral people who care about others and do not want to be lumped in with the extremists. I think the writing brings about a good balance and gives good lessons for each of us to learn. Not all Muslims are bad people. They love their families, they love those of other religions as well. They are good people.
But thank God for groups like the Cloister of Athenaken and people like Wes Franklin who strive to keep the world free of evil, free of danger and free to live in peace.
