Just finished The C Factor by D A Ramirez. A spy novel set in Russia during the Cold War era. Lots of twists and turns plus an evolving romance. Entertaining, educational and well researched. Could hardly put it down...
An action packed intelligent thriller. "The C-Factor by D.A. Ramirez is a thriller that meets all the requirements for an action packed novel. First, there is intrigue. The main character George Taylor, a high profile research doctor, is recruited by the US government to analyze a mysterious crash of a Russian transport jet in Greenland. Second, there is suspense. George uncovers a deadly plot while in the Ukraine involving a Russian General that could affect the whole world. Third, there is a love angle. George's actions get him entangled with Maria, a smart and tough doctor, who he helps unravel the mystery of the "unknown" soldiers under her care. Fourth, there is action and a lot of it. George and Maria are thrown into a battle between two nations to cover up the truth of nuclear proportions. Ramirez is a talented writer who is very detailed oriented. You can feel that the author has extensive knowledge in all the areas that he writes. With that, I found that there was an excess of information in some starting points that slowed down the pace of the novel. Ramirez finds his stride a quarter into the novel and increases the pace with a logical timeline that follows historical events in the ‘80s. He weaves the main characters and the various sub plots effortlessly to a climax that would rival many best sellers. The C-Factor is an intelligent thriller that had me thinking, was that the true story or fiction?" TBR-TopBookReviewers
