Overview

“Neil Russell has to be one of the finest, skilled, and accomplished writers in the country, a true master of intrigue.”

—Clive Cussler

 

Neil Russell introduced ex-Delta Force billionaire, Hollywood insider, and freelance avenger Rail Black in City of War—and the author immediately established himself as a magnum force to be reckoned with in the field of contemporary thriller fiction. Both Russell and Black are ready to blow you away again with Wildcase. Named for the FBI’s term for crimes too savage and inexplicable to be easily categorized, Wildcase puts Rail Black on the trail of whoever brutally murdered an ex-cop friend and his wife in a town filled with cops—a path that will lead him into the grimiest shadows of “Sin City” Las Vegas and into the sinister machinery of a most unholy megachurch.

Two gruesome murders, a billionaire with seemingly scores of contacts, the FBI, Chinese, jade tigers, and an historical tale of the hunting and transportation of live tigers, all before page fifty. With Russell's latest book, this is the beginning of a complex mystery with a slew of interesting, witty, and sometimes dangerous characters coming out of the woodwork at every turn. This one . . . well . . . it'll drive you wild. Billionaire and ex Delta Force operative Rail Black (isn't that just a great name?) is called to a California desert town to witness the scene of a gruesome pair of murders. The victims are a police buddy and his Chinese wife. Black is asked by an LAPD Deputy Chief to make sure the murders stay hushed up. Almost immediately afterward, a tough, no-nonsense, Special Agent in Charge from the FBI shows up demanding to know what's going on and how Black is involved. From then readers learn some history, mainly involving Ensign Fabian Canada on a mission in World War II. He's supposed to be rescuing some downed pilots in China, but winds up saving a baby. This is the spark initiating an operation lasting decades, until it gets out of control and two people are heinously murdered in the California desert. This is an intelligently written book with very good action and humor. Black is not a detective, but is a logical thinker with skills and knowledgeable people to back him up. There are secrets galore and Russell does an excellent job at pulling on the tendrils, revealing a little at time, and not showing the entire picture until the time is right.

Good story, but way overboard on the detailed descriptions of sexual experiences of the main character. The book would have been far better without the explicit sex! Because of this, I can not recommend this book! Surely, Mr. Russell can do better than this.

Dear Anonymous- I am the author of Wildcase and the first book in the series, City of War. Thank you for purchasing and reading my work. Also thank you for taking the time to write a review. I believe it is inherent in the proposition of writing--especially fiction--that one's personal views become part of the narrative. The point I was making using smoking as a device is about personal choice and freedom from an ever-increasing, intrusive set of bureaucrats intent on herding us all in the same direction. Other than a cigar at weddings or after the death of Bin Laden, I do not smoke, but I support those who make the choice to do so. We are free Americans, not subjects of a crown or some gray state, and these kinds of choices keep us free. Thank you again, and I hope you will read City of War and the upcoming Beverly Hills is Burning. But I will advise you ahead of time that the lead, Rail Black, smokes in both. Kind regards, Neil Russell

I'm enjoying about 2/3 of this book, but the author obviously has an agenda. It's fun to follow the plot line however the author is clearly writing his fantasies and injecting his personal viewpoints all over. For example, he describes not being able to smoke in public as taking a little piece of America's soul away. If you want to feel like the male star of a Cinemax late night movie, then this book is for you. Otherwise, don't bother.
