Not usually a fan of action/thriller/body-count/terrorism/armed services books (completely my own description), I read the book with hesitation.
I tell you that before I tell you that I spent a weekend completely absorbed in this book. Though it is a purely fictional representation of an imaginary man and his `battle with current day evil', the knowledge, facts and back story are all a result of current political conditions and prior events. After reading this book, the realization of what ubiquitous evils lay waiting in the world scared me to death.
Between the author's history, his knowledge base, expertise and subsequent research, MJ Mollenhour knows of what he speaks; his eloquent mastery of the English language doesn't hurt either. His talents at storytelling and enlightenment are demonstrated on every single page. This is a MUST READ for anyone who believes events like the tragedy on 9-11 will never happen again.
This is my first novel by this author. I found you could skip the first 6 chapters of the book that read like boilerplate and not miss a thing related to the plot. The jist is the protagonist is unhappy and whines for 6 chapters. Since I was stuck in a hospital waiting room however, I continued reading and determined that once the story line begins with chapter 7, it's quite good. I haven't finished it as I'm about 50% through, but agree the author has promise, his character development is good and he finally has my attention.
While the book is a great subject area that I usally enjoy reading, I found parts of it to be very slow and almost of no value to the overall story. I feel the majority of the book was wasted setting up a fairly mundane plot/ending. Also the author at times tends to be all over the place in his writing style. At the kindle price I paid for it, I don't regret it, but it was a struggle at times to continue.
