Overview

Al Qaeda has risen to a new level of sinister sophistication using medical technology and a Russian doctor from Soviet days to duplicate a U.S. Army officer and infiltrate the duplicate into the U.S. A fellow officer and co-worker of the duplicated officer discovers the duplication and the breach of national security. Rather than expose his own secret life, but driven by his duty to serve and protect his country, he takes matters into his own hands with the help of friends to remove the infiltrator and his helpers from the country. In a fast moving story of intrigue and determination, the DIA, CIA, and FBI cooperate to eliminate the possibility of exposure of the breach of the nation's security. A fast moving odyssey through Syria, Mexico, Cuba, Iraq, the U.S. and Canada, involves current events-a major al Qaeda terror plot foiled in Canada, a war in Lebanon. Characters develop and grow spiritually and emotionally, suffer losses, and discover new life and happiness.

It is 2010; the television news tells us the increasingly creative ways Qaeda tries to infiltrate the US. Increasingly first-generation Americans are drawn into terrorist activity. Yemen and Yemini Americans are increasingly identified as terrorism sources. Was Heath Daniels clairvoyant in 2006 when he wrote an engaging novel of intrigue that included just these issues and others? In Three Kisses he takes realistic and believable actions-as verified by subsequent events-and spins plot and subplots that keep readers turning pages right up to the unexpected end. Al Qaeda has obtained medical technology to create exact duplicates of persons to be infiltrated into the U.S. A Russian cosmetic surgeon performed such surgery for the old Soviet Union, a practice that strongly suspected in intelligence circles. Al Qaeda established him in Syria where al Qaeda can operate freely and a former Soviet satellite receptive to Russians. He joined a major Syrian medical school and hospital performing routine cosmetic surgery until the right person came along to be made into a duplicate and infiltrated into the US. U.S. Army Captain Patrick Ferris, a first generation Lebanese American, was ideal to be duplicated because of his Arab physical features and his job in a secret weapons system activity. Patrick has major roles up to the end of the plot but never suspects. Dr. Ali Salman, himself a cosmetic surgeon from Syria, is made into the duplicate. not because of terrorist instincts but only a desire to escape Syria. Brahim and Boudi, two likeable young first generation Yemeni Americans caught between cultures, help infiltrate Ali and unwittingly are involved in other illegal activities that lead to their downfall. U.S Marine Corps Major Frank Reynolds, a colleague of Patrick, has a secret life that allowed him to discover that Ali is not Patrick and something potentially serious is going. Not wanting to expose his secret, he takes action into his own hands with the help of some of buddies and whisks Ali, Brahim, and Boudi away from Ohio starting them on an odyssey through Mexico, Cuba, and into Baghdad. Although not a hero, Frank plays a major role to the end. Other action moves up and down the Appalachian mountain region and elsewhere. Reminiscent of John Grisham, we are treated to descriptions of interesting out-of-the way places like Fairborn, Ohio and Wytheville, Virginia In addition to Roanoke, Virginia, and Duluth, Minnesota like the author is taking readers to his hometown. Along the way, the characters grow in self-discovery and spirituality. Heath Daniels creates and develops characters like they were best friends or neighbors. We meet Omar Abu Deeb, a Yemeni immigrant, PhD in Islamic theology and local imam; Joe Shaito a brilliant young lawyer and first generation Lebanese-American. Brad Spencer a devoted Christian who is gay and an Arabic language specialist; Felicia Cavanaugh a Filipina "war bride" widow, and others to whom readers become attached. The author is especially adept at writing dialogue. readers feel like they are in the same room. Government officials in different countries and an Army Reserve unit form Nebraska presented as though readers work with them daily basis. The book is long, over 600 pages. It is not for casual readers looking for a quick. If you like a fascinating read with realistic characters and action to keep you interested to the last page, this is the book for you.

The story plot is beyond imagination, but incredibly thrilling. Even though most of the characters are gay, the tale is exciting enough to keep all but those who are really uncomfortable with homosexuality enthralled. I think Mr Daniels may have created a new literary genre, as I have never read anything quite like Three Kisses. The characters come alive in such a way that I felt as though I knew them personally and I found this book hard to put down. The last page is a real surprise, and leaves the reader thirsting for a sequel. I can hardly wait to see what Daniels does when these characters return, and return they must!
