Dale Conley, agent in the BEI, the Bureau of Esoteric Investigation, receives a coded message that draws him to the Oak Ridge Tennessee area. His investigations lead him to the Oak Ridge Reservation, the "Fort Knox" of nuclear materials in the U.S. While there he is pointed in the direction of a mysterious local "Prophet" leading a group of protestors. However somebody is quickly shadowing Dale and apparently is out to kill him. The action is fast and non-stop as Dale must work out the end game of the Prophet while evading those out to kill him to stop his investigation.
I recommend this book to anyone who like conspiracy theories, and spy action with historical fiction thrown in.
A dangerous Rasputin-like prophet, Asa Hendrix, who is highly charismatic, leading his blinded followers into protests against the use of nuclear power, proclaiming the destruction of the planet due to nuclear waste run off.
But Asa Hendrix isn’t the only mysterious figure in Dale Conley’s sights: there’s also The Guide. No name, no face.
Dale is determined to discover who sent the coded message; when Dale discovers who’s responsible, it changes his entire focus. The freedom of every person in the United States is in peril, and it’s up to Dale Conley to prevent a catastrophic event.
Wow what a ride! This is one suspenseful thriller that really lives up to its name! I couldn’t put it down! Ripped right out of today’s headlines, it sent shivers racing down my spine; it made me think… “What if….?”
He gets mixed up in protecting some highly secretive, and dangerous nuclear weapons information. He goes under cover in a group run by a madman that has dealings with Russia and other foreign countries. Dales cleverness, and knowledge of history just may save his life. Highly recommended. A very enjoyable exciting story.
Dale Conley is a special agent for the Bureau of Esoteric Investigation (BEI) with a keen interest in history and a dress code that would make a professional performing artist envious.
Both Dale and Asa have high confidence in their respective skills. They finally meet with guns out but agree to talk, on edge and full alert.
The moment that Asa has been planning for two years is about to happen and the guns start firing.
The notion that Russia and all Russians were bad was common in the 1970s; parts of the story were consistent with what I recall.
While I enjoyed the fast moving story, and still recommend it, I was put off by four things:
1. Dale escaped bullets fired in his direction which helped the plot but seemed to be a catch-all for a scene change. Some of the weapons firing was spectacularly accurate especially when a high powered long gun was fired.
2. There were a number of references to CAE (Collective Agricultural Experiment) and it's leader Glenn Downey. This seemed to be a cult but I have not heard the name before and it does not come up in a Web search. Perhaps it is from another book by Erik Carter.
3. A single reference to "talkin' jive" in which Asa's core philosophy that people "are looking for something to believe" was cited. I had expected a difference context for the book's title phrase.
4. The concern that the Levi 501 jeans had to stay meticulous was overblown.
I voluntarily received a copy of this book and I'm voluntarily posting a review. My opinion is entirely my own.
