The Coalition: A Novel of Suspense by Samuel A Marquis



“The Coalition has a lot of good action and suspense, an unusual female assassin, and the potential to be another The Day After Tomorrow.”—James Patterson, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

“Reminiscent of The Day of the Jackal…with a high level of authentic detail. Skyler is a convincing sniper, and also a nicely conflicted one.”—Donald Maass, Author of Writing 21st Century Fiction

In this second thriller in the Nick Lassiter-Skyler International Espionage Series, the beautiful female assassin Skyler takes center stage and continues on in Book 3 of the series, The Fourth Pularchek. As the book opens, she calmly watches a procession of black Lincolns from the fiftieth floor of an office building in Denver, Colorado. When the motorcade pulls to the curb in Civic Center Plaza, a prominent leader steps from one of the vehicles and takes the stage to make an important speech. Moments later, a loud BOOM echoes through the Plaza and the man slumps to the platform like a stringless marionette. The mysterious sniper Skyler, whose very existence is unknown to the international law enforcement community, has just assassinated U.S. President-elect William Ambrose Kieger.

In the aftermath of the shocking political crime, she escapes and a Task Force is swiftly assembled, headed up by Special Agent Kenneth Patton of the FBI’s Denver Field Office. A ten year vet in Domestic Terrorism, the unconventional Ken is driven to solve the crime by both professional and personal motives. His search leads him to not only the elusive female assassin who is a master of disguise and impersonation, but a secret society whose diabolical and far-reaching plot threatens the very highest levels of the U.S. government. Yet the group’s motives, secret membership, and ambitious plans remain elusive. Can Ken and his team uncover the plot in time to save the day? Can they beat the countdown on the clock and catch Skyler and the shadowy group in the background pulling the strings? Or will time run out?

Well developed characters. Interesting story. Made me miss my home state of Colorado even more.

Overall, I enjoyed the base story of catching/stopping a mysterious assassin. I thought it was intriguing in that regard. However, the anti-Christian and anti-conservative biases shown by the author robbed the book of anything resembling realism,especially concerning many of the main characters. In fact, I found the assassin to be the most human character in the whole book. Welcome to LaLa Land. I cannot recommend this book.

Spoiler alert - kind of. Super right wing religious organization with a hitman on payroll that has serious fetish/religious issues decides to hire a private hitman who just happens to pray for her victims to kill a right wing president that isn't radical enough and tries to frame green peace for it. Uber liberal reporter who just happens to have suffered severe emotional abuse by her father in the name of righteousness and is now undercover at the religious organization that ordered the hit bumps into her now FBI agent ex-boyfriend running the murder investigation, takes a half hour to explain she dumped him and gave up their kid under pressure from her father at the age of 20 and they immediately get back together. Several additional random plots also take place and several more start and get dropped. Convoluted. Really unnecessary overkill on the softcore porn. I'm not sure if the author was trying to relate severe sexual dysfunction to excessive religion and it's various repressions and repressors but he did; at least in my view. I can't recommend this book. I usually love a good conspiracy, I couldn't get into this one.

Began very well until the authors agenda took over. Constant harping against Christians which are cast in unrealistic and negative light. Stopped. Dont waste your time.

The Coalition: A Novel of Suspense by Samuel Marquis is one that you'll have to be sure that your seatbelt is on. You're goin on a ride for a fantastic read and you may not be sure that you'll come back. Once you begin reading this, you won't put it down until you finish it. It is a fantastic political thriller and is truly unique. It would make a great addition to your bookshelf. It would make a great gift to give at anytime of the year. This book is one that is a must read. It's 5 starred but deserves more and I highly recommend it to all.
