I read Executive Betrayal, and can only say what a ride. Once I began to read it, I could not put it down, the author had me thinking one way, and than other. I did not know who do it until the very end, and even at the ending, you still do not know who were really behind it all. I do have to say WOW! a must read. I also found out this is a series of novels, can not to read the more. Bob
I brought this book from a local book store, a friend told me about the book, and so I got it. I love the way the author told his story, and the plot, which is what's happening today. I also learn that the author 'Edwin Santiago' had written the book three years ago, and wrote the book with headlines news of today. There is another thing I heard? The second book from the 'Max Stone Series' title 'Lines Between the Sands' is due out early of 2004, and I will be online to get it. I rate this a 5, and hope others would love the book the way I did.
¿Executive Betrayal¿ tells a thrilling tale of terrorism, espionage, and the New World Order. Cartersville, GA -- July 23, 2003 -- One of America¿s newest authors hits home with a startlingly realistic novel that appears to be ripped from the pages of today¿s current events. ¿Executive Betrayal¿ by Edwin Santiago and Dorothy Harper is a fantastic and ¿seemingly non-fiction¿ story of how America chooses to deal with the modern day threats to our freedom, peace, and well being. The first novel, ¿Executive Betrayal¿ was written in early 2000 and Santiago felt compelled to re-write much of the first book after the events of 9/11. ¿As a New Yorker, I didn¿t want to appear to be capitalizing on the Twin Towers¿ Santiago says. The original draft of the book was disturbingly prophetic. The Department of Counter Intelligence (DCI) is a major factor in the first novel. The DCI is being introduced and established by the new American President and the Department is a major step forward in the methods, capabilities, and powers of dealing with terrorism and security. The DCI is responsible for correlating all of America and other member nation¿s intelligence gathering and distribution. The hero of the series is agent Max Stone, an FBI agent with a past who leads a task force at the DCI. ¿Executive Betrayal¿ will quickly take the reader on an involving ride from the floor of the United Nations into the steamy underbrush of jungles and streets of our major cities. Corruption is traced back to some of the very highest officials in the world who will stop at nothing and have little regard for the laws for common man or their liberties. Santiago is an ex-Marine who now works for a major software company in Atlanta. He has recently completed the second in the series of six `Max Stone¿ novels and is busily working on the third. He draws extensively from his experiences with the Marine Corps in the 1970s. ¿Executive Betrayal / a Max Stone Series¿ by Edwin Santiago and Dorothy Harper is a breathtaking ride that brings to vivid life some of the most amazing and captivating characters you have ever seen. The novel is at once a thriller, spy story, and part intrigue and full of intensive action, political subterfuge and amazing high-tech gadgets. It is definitely the best first novel you will read this year! This is the reason why I bought this bok, I give it 5 stars.
I just read this book 'executive Betrayal', which turns out to be a series of upcoming novels, and I do have to say that the author story line is well written. I do like the way he works his characters within the story, as it moves from place to place, and it makes you feel that you are part of the book. I recommend it to those who loves a good fiction book, and enjoy it the way I have.
It was a great read. I read the book, and love it, it's new, well written, and the dialog is great. 'Max' the hero is a man with issues, and I hope he works them out with 'Maritza'. I better not say too much. Anyway, It's a great read, plus it really hits with what is happening today, and what we really need to do, and to cope with what is out there today. P.s. plus I would buy the next book, just to see what happens with 'Max, and Maritza'. Sue
Wow! A sharp and perceptive vision of our world today. Original ideas and approaches to today's world problems as they might really be dealt with. A must-read thriller that will take the reader on a captivating ride of political, military, and world intrique. This story takes place in our near (or almost present) future and tells about new agency built by the US to conteract the threats of terrorism, as well as dealing with general crime on a world-wide basis. Deals with our New World Order and the threats we all face. I'm really looking forward to the next in this 'Max Stone' series!
