Midwest Book Review -- Mayra Calvani
Benjamin Howland, Secretary of State, represents all that America stands for. He is gracious, knowledgeable, a war hero and true patriot. Yet¿ he has a darker, secret side. Propelled by twisted delusions, a distorted sense of goodness and justice and blind, cold ambition, he¿s planned a mad conspiracy that will bring back America to its old glory. Yes, blood will flow down the streets. Thousands of men, women and children will die. But what better way to unify a country than through great tragedy? The plan: starting with Yellowstone National Park, to ignite fires at specific locations all throughout the country, using high-tech, computarized ¿owls.¿ The date: the 4th of July. Always on the run with his beautiful wife Tricia, James Foster, known as a world-class terrorist and nicknamed the ¿Mudslinger,¿ has just discovered a new facet to his ¿alien,¿ unnatural gifts¿he is able to ¿quench¿ fires. If he succeeds in getting back to the States on time, he might be able to help with those fires and save many lives. But will he¿when the American government has put such an exorbitant prize on his head and several contracted killers are after him? Suspense and spine-tingling, non-stop action await you. An excellent knowledge of electronics, fast-moving scenes, believable characters and sparkling dialogue combine to make this a book you won¿t want to put down. Like watching a 007 film, it will grab you by the throat till the end. Though the book stands fine on its own, I would recommend reading the first two books in the series, Then is the Power and The Mudslinger Sanction, if only to become more acquainted with the protagonist¿s struggle to understand and control his own nature.
