A new gifted writer, Dick Nelson, with remarkable insight into the recent historical events in America has delivered a very entertaining novel to the reading public's hands. The Trojan Horse Conspiracy: The infiltration and destruction of American Democracy, makes the reader wonder how Nelson came onto the secret details and facts that are, so he writes, embedded in the events of our history for the past half century.
Dick Nelson is a former Navy fighter pilot, airline pilot, attorney, and business man that as a Naval Academy graduate has broad knowledge of all things military, law enforcement, international terror, and home grown nefarious political plots that most of the public has some knowledge about. And this is a work of fiction, a detail easily forgotten, as you are caught up with the fast paced news story writing style loaded with facts, details, actual addresses of terrorist boat docks, safe houses, and names.
The story involves the Russians and the Chinese and their actions to implement a far reaching plan to plant someone on the political path to the White House to destroy democracy and freedom in America. How could this plan possibly work? Could there really be sufficient willing "fellow travelers" and communist agents in America to support such a plan over the years it would take to develop into reality. The parallels to today's commonly known facts remove any disbelief of the reader that this plan is plausible, workable, and perhaps inevitable.
The book's flow of facts and action are very well paced and keeps one turning the pages into the night. There is neither slow down in reader interest nor flat writing in the middle of the book often seen in many Techno-Thrillers.Read more ›
During the first half of the book, at times I found some of the time chronology a bit difficult, and thought it could have been a bit clearer with when certain things were happening. The story covers quite a time span in those chapters. It is obvious to determine who one central character was based on, and I'll say right up front, if you are a strong democrat you might not like this book. So, if you don't, please don't hate the review because I did, I warned you. While I think anyone who enjoys a good action adventure tale could enjoy this book, I believe some of the political aspects in the story may alienate some democrats and those that lean toward liberal beliefs. Republicans and conservatives are more apt to enjoy the political descriptions and action told in this tale.
The main character, Brad Tilsdale and his partner, Jeff Billings, are characters I enjoyed, and wouldn't mind reading about again. They found themselves in the middle of a plot to bring down American Democracy, and their commitment to find those that infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. Government was fun to read about. I do hope Nelson writes about them again. It was also interesting to think about the possibilities that Nelson presented in this novel. Many will say, no way. Others might already be saying it is happening.Read more ›
