Overview

A California senator is brutally slain. But that is only the beginning of the increasingly macabre murders of members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. The CIA hire their termination specialist, Tyrone Quade, an ex-Weathermen infiltrator and current jailbird, to find the killer.

Quade has to be pardoned from federal prison in Los Angeles, where he is doing time for blowing up a passenger jet--a charge he denies. In his search for the killer, he becomes a target for Mafia henchmen and a Colombian cocaine cartel, among others, and starts to doubt his own innocence and even his sanity as his investigation keeps spiraling him back to his alleged bombing of the jet.

To his consternation, Quade discovers a covert trail that leads him to the upper echelons of the United States government, where an unholy alliance will do anything to prevent him from uncovering the truth.

I was reading the reviews for Max Payne, on DVD, and the author of this book was one of the reviewers. I checked up on his book, this Fete of Death, and look what I found: 1 review, 5 stars, from anonymous. Big surprise.

The review is a laugh, as after I read it I flipped over to the Read an Excerpt.

The first sentence alone is a prime example of bad writing.

Listen, Bryan Cassiday, instead of trying to get people to read your poorly written, cliche-ridden mess, maybe actually TRY writing. Just because the words come to you doesn't mean you need to use them. I'm not saying every syllable needs to pack a wallop, but geez, show some effort.

Trust me, effort is a visible thing.

And the excerpt I read showed none.

This isn't a pissing contest, it's just my opinion of your writing. And since I'm sure you check this site, and every other site on which you have your book available for purchase, daily, I hope this message gets to you quickly and sinks in.

The writing of your Max Payne review was of a higher caliber than your book.

"Fete of Death" is a high-voltage thriller about the CIA hit man Tyrone Quade who investigates the murders of US Senators in Los Angeles and becomes ensnared in a conspiracy rooted in Washington, DC. He discovers an explosive cover-up at the highest echelons of the government that could bring down the current administration. Marked for death by bloodthirsty conspirators, Quade must stay alive long enough to expose the conspiracy, forestall it, and save the lives of the next victims on the conspirators' list. A pure adrenaline rush of a book, "Fete of Death" hurtles forward without letup.

Mr. Cassiday should spend more time in writing workshops and less time trying to pimp his awful book through B+N reviews. It's shameless self promotion, but it won't come as a surprise to anyone who filps through his book. He really will have to fool people into buying this trash. And I also suspect the lone positive 5 star review was written by the author himself. How patheitc...

This is a thriller that packs as many punches and plot twists as any penned by Robert Ludlum. It's a careening locomotive of a book that doesn't quit. Cassiday has a fine sense of pace, and the suspense is relentless. And one more thing: this guy can write!
