EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FORFeb. 6 2007
- Published on Amazon.com
Please note this review is for RISING PHOENIX only.I have not yet read the other novel.
RISING PHOENIX is a highly enjoyable,reasonably plausible thriller.the plot is a super-televangelist hatches a plot to poison the illegal drugs that come into the USA.To engage his vision he hires a sociopathic ex DEA
agent.When the plot begins to bear fruit and many people begin to die horrible deaths--enter MR MILLS regular protaganist, FBI agent MARK BEAMON.The ensuing twists and turns involving Columbian drug lords,New York Mafia,Baltimore ghetto gangs,ect involve detailed and very believable
characters.I especially enjoy the MARK BEAMON protaganist because,for a change a thriller's main "good guy" is NOT a quasi-superman who instantly makes women swoon and uses his intense fighting skills to destroy crowds
of antagonists every other chapter or so.(not to say this novel lacks action sequences--they are here in spades and very well done)AGENT BEAMON's primary skills involve uncanny investigative skills and an abilty to piss off his superiors.
