Aside from the action and the fast pace, this story caught my attention and I actually dropped a couple of books just to finish reading this one. I knew the story had to be predictable. I already had an idea on what was happening and sort of what was going to happen although the ending rather threw me off track. Nevertheless I thought it was still an enjoyable read. The action really made up for it's pitfalls because it just felt like such a huge adrenaline rush and an engaging read.
I liked both main characters; David and Jonathon. They are your typical dynamic duo! and the way they work together is fun to read - not to mention they playful banter. Ariane on the other hand, is strong and suitable for Jonathon. Although you don't really read much about her, she's really in the background for most of the time - even though she's the object of their rescue. Which rather irked me.Read more ›
People are being kidnaped. Jonathan Payne is oblivious, being otherwise occupied with his 13,000 foot mansion; his position as CEO of his family's company; and his stunning girlfriend, Ariane Walker. As a ex-member of an elite military team called the MANIACS, Jonathan has little to fear. He and Ariane are looking forward to a long weekend, which doesn't materialize when Payne finds her kidnaped from her apartment:
"Well, my guess is that she was drugged or knocked out. The set of three footsteps that the Listener originally detected were Ariane's and the two assailants. They broke into her place, gagged her, drugged her, then dragged her out. That's the only thing that fits the facts."
Payne and his best friend, former MANIAC partner, and employee David Jones (no relation to the Monkee) embark on what turns out to be a trap that ensnares them into a White slaving operation borne out of an intense desire for revenge by a group of Black Supremacists. Payne and Jones have to pull out all the stops, including calling upon their old unit, to match wits and break up a slaving operation that crosses continents.
Kuzneski is a talented and passionate writer whose tightly paced plots, intense characters, and excruciating detail produces a book guaranteed to make the reader squirm even as it mesmerizes us.Read more ›

Like a weak soup. Not much substance. Story held my interest but the writing seemed amateurish. His second book,
Sign of the Cross, is a significant improvement.
I don't even know where to begin with a review of this novel. What is it that bothers me so much about this story? Read morePublished on March 13 2004 by mellion108
First, the writing style is very flat and I find it quite hard to believe that Kuzneski actually taught English as he told me he did. Read more
This is a pretty good book by a (noticeably) first time author. If you can you deal with the sometimes immature and contrived conversation between the two main characters, you... Read morePublished on Sept. 13 2002
