    Disappointing

    I have read the author's other three books and I found them more interesting. I was hoping that Jericho's Fall would be somewhat like the other three in that they would involve upper class, politically connected African Americans as their main protagonists. I was almost finished with the book before I found that all of the main characters were Caucasian. The author has the privilege to write about anyone he chooses, but I sought this particular author because of his previous subjects. Next time I'll be more careful. Aside from this, I did not find any of his characters engaging or endearing. Instead, they were all flaky and by the end I did not care who survived.

    Ex-CIA Man Claim Plot in This Painfully Slow Thriller

    This book could have been a lot better. The trouble is you wait till almost to the end of the book for something to happen. Rebecca (named Beck) is called to visit her dying ex-lover Jericho Ainsley who is dying. Jericho is an ex-CIA head who lives his entire life as if he is being constantly under surveillence.

    As Beck is a great deal younger than Jericho, everyone was bothered by their relationship, especially Jericho's two daughters Pamela and Audrey. Right from the start Beck suspects that something is amiss a a helicopter seems to come and go overhead and Beck's cellphone get periodical wierd calls even though she is in a dead zone for phones.

    Jericho keeps talking about people coming to kill him while Pamela and Audrey insist that he has lost his mental capacity and they are just delusions of a dying man.

    The book focuses on the interplay among the three women as well as Dak an ex-agency man who keeps on visiting Jercho, the sheriff and his deputy, and the librarian. The interplay among the main participants is the majority of the book and many times I was tempted to put the book down and read something else as this interplay was extremely booring.

    If you are looking for an intense thriller you will not find it here.
