I couldn't put this book down. The story line was realistic and made more believable by recent terrorist events. This was my first Larry Bond read, and now I am scouring the shelves for everything he has done. Like other techno-thriller novelists, Bond creates a scenario based loosely on historical facts, then winds us through a multi-tiered plot. Sure, the good guys win in the end, and yes the bad guys get what they have coming. But we expect that. The artistry is in the details. The characters are more than cardboard cutouts. We really do want to find out how they fare. In fact, we can hardly wait. Bond delivers.

Bond is one of my 'must read' authors. They write it and I read it and this one didn't disappoint. If you like a fast-paced thriller you'll like this book.

The second coming of Tom Clancy. A very detailed but inquiring story. Larry Bond has developed a sophiscated technique of capturing a readers attention from start to finish.

Henry VIII sits on the throne of England and has ignored the papal refusal to annul his marriage. He gets a divorce to marry Anne Boleyn and is in the process of setting up a church independent of Rome. His first step is to inventory the monasteries so that he could add anything of value to his treasury before he disbands them and sells the buildings.

One of his advisors, Nicholas Peverell is sick about the regal decision since the one nearest his manor home in Sussex was built by his ancestors and supported by him. The king is planning on visiting Nicholas on his way to Portsmouth but there is a conspiracy to assassinate His Highness. Nicholas doesn¿t know if the threat comes from, the defeated York supporters or a rebellious churchman but he knows he must keep his king safe if he wants to live.

Iris Collier brings the pageantry and culture of the era when Henry VIII ruled England to vivid life in her meticulously researched historical mystery DAY OF WRATH. The mystery itself is cleverly constructed and there are enough suspects to keep the reader guessing until the author is ready to reveal the killer¿s identity. The hero is a warm caring man who makes this work a touch above the well written sub-genre novel as the age comes alive as much as the who-will-do-it plot.

The book seems to me to be very one dimentional. The villians have no motive to be doing what they're doing. They fall for the simpliest traps that the heroes come up with. I am very disappointed in the way this book is done. This was my least favorite book that Larry Bond has done. This would be a good book to stay away from.
