Dreams and schemes come together in the mountains of Colorado and are played out in Aspen
Collisions in a diverse cross section of individuals in American culture, either by chance or design, send these individuals crossing paths with the unfamiliar and the bizarre. The politics of government, the power plays of big business, the people who carve the structures of both, all appear in Beginning. Some are at their best and some, well, some perhaps might benefit from nurturing in that direction. There are believers, and schemers, the righteous, and the profane. We are introduced to Senators, Lobbyists, heavy players in international business, reformers, muscle for hire, good guys and bad guys, and guys in the middle just trying to make a buck.
Dreams and schemes come together in the mountains of Colorado, and are played out in the upscale town of Aspen. Opposites prevail, and visions become reality.
Old airplanes, fishing trips, old and new morality, the truly ugly and the beautiful all contribute to the final outcome of this story of diverse individuals and their somewhat bizarre human ecology.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
'BEGINNING', an aptly named first novel in a series, which brings protagonist Bill Hanson into the middle of intrigue involving some very unlikely (and unwittimg) co-conspirators. The book opens with the theft of a deadly virus which, when unleashed on the general population will find its' way to the very seat of the United Staes government. Follow our hero as he flies his vintage airplane cross country in search of elusive answers to his quest of truth, justice, and the answer to a dream which has been haunting him for as long as he could remember. The daunting amount of research it has taken to bring this book to fruition is at once apparant as the reader delves into this fast paced thriller.
