Product Description

Product Description

North Korea has long-range nuclear missiles and is ready to launch them at the United States.

Nuclear and chemical weapons sites on the Korean Peninsula must be destroyed before they are used against the West by maximum leader Kam and his Neo-Soviet allies, potentially escalating the fighting and forcing a break with the NATO alliance that could lead to global conflict with weapons of mass destruction in a final spasm attack.

Yet another blast-off thriller from Dave, the King of Action and Adventure, author of Under Attack, Threatcon Delta and Habu Patch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right On Target Oct. 16 2010
By Malek Bar-Zev - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Snake Handlers is a fast-paced thriller, totally galvanizing in its scope, premise and unmistakable ring of authenticity. Every page hits the bulls-eye with a wallop you can feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars EDGY AS A BUZZSAW! SHARP AS A KNIFE! Dec 15 2011
By Dane Prescott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Snake Handlers, by David Alexander, has got "superthriller" status in my opinion. If you want a thriller with all the bells and whistles and no frills and fluff, then this is the thriller you want to wrap your hands around without further delay.

The storyline begins with a bang that's so loud they can practically hear it in the capital of the rogue state that's bent on using its illegal array of advanced weapons of mass destruction to make them regional hegemons.

And they can do it too. You get the chilling sense that they'll pull it off if they're not stopped.

Fortunately their plans are seriously challenged by both United States conventional and special forces tasked by the Pentagon to stop the weapons development program cold and before it can literally and figuratively reach critical mass.

The stoppers are a team of the most exceptional capable special forces personnel ever assembled to take on a covert mission by the Department of Defense. This team, called the Snake Handlers, from which the title is taken, is called what it's called because it's specially trained and equipped to locate and neutralize or destroy weapons of mass destruction in whatever forms they may take. These are figurative "snakes" that the team knows how to handle. And handle their deadly quarry they certainly can do.

As might be expected from a superthriller with global reach such as Snake Handlers is, this action fest has its share of sub-plots that collectively add a huge amount of depth to the narrative, but from what I've read (I've read the entire thriller but have read most of the opening chapters one more time because I found them particularly enjoyable) the plotting gives Snake Handlers a lot of richness but doesn't get in the way of the powerful and brisk action scenes, punchy dialog or very, very clever plotting and characterization.

Snake Handlers is a thriller that's earned this thriller junkie's total and unconditional seal of approval!

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick And Well Done June 23 2011
By Trek James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was slick and well-done, combining global superweaponry, international cloak-and-dagger maneuvers and action sequences that are extremely cinematic and realistic.

Here's finally a writer I can really appreciate, one who knows how to use a powerful prose line combined with an expert's grasp of the technology and strategy of modern warfare and what appears to be an insider's knowledge of the world of covert intelligence and back-room politics to make a story come alive and keep the reader continuously on surprise alert.

Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scores Big! Nov. 29 2010
By Kareem - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It's not that often that you find a thriller that delivers and doesn't wimp out in the home stretch. Snake Handlers is one of those efforts that keeps batting a thousand. I'm of the opinion that an action thriller should be written from the standpoint of the author setting out to write a great book, period. No matter what the book's subject, or whether it's fiction or fact, that should be a writer's first goal. Now, with a lot of other books, I haven't gotten that impression. But I've gotten it with Snake Handlers and with virtually everything else I've read under this author's byline. That's what keeps me returning for more. Snake Handlers didn't disappoint, and that in itself would have been enough. Beyond that it kept gathering steam. That's an accomplishment, I can assure you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A THRILLER BY THE BARD OF MAYHEM June 23 2011
By A Soldier And Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I won't mince words. This was a truly great action thriller, but a very gifted bard of mayhem. Snake Handlers not only managed to capture my entire attention right from the start, but made me think about the strategic realities of terrorism, and the dangers from rogue states.

Also, I was motivated to think about how I would personally face the challenges of combat now and in the future, and what going into this type of very intense battlefield situation would mean to me as a combatant as well as how the US military may have to cope with such developments in the future.

It's really amazing how accurate and lifelike these depictions seem at times.

It goes without saying that this bold effort has my personal recommendation, but I also realize it's my judgment call.

I suggest you read it and judge for yourself, but I strongly suspect you'll come away with the same verdict as mine.
