In my reviews you will often find mention of the characters who
populate the story. A good tale well told is, of course essential.
But to me, just as essential is good company. Avid readers will agree
I think, that good characters will stay with you for a long time. They
become like old friends.

Any thriller requires a certain suspension of belief. This is one reason
I enjoy reading them. An escape to somewhere where someone is having a
worse day than I am! Or just a spirited romp through a place I will never
see, in circumstances I hope to never experience. But, I do like to be in
good company. Will Dresser provides this

Wes Franklin, Rouzbeh Aryana, and Ashley "AJ" Jordan are allies in the
fight against evil, not just here in the United States, but around the world.
They are a finely tuned machine, but also share an abiding love and loyalty.
We learn that Aryana has already nearly given his life for his friend Wes, actually
taking a bullet meant for the other man. Wes and AJ are not only partners in the
avocation they share, but they are kindred spirits and lovers.

Books about terror and terrorists are a dime a dozen these days. This one has its
share of terrorists, and a cool breeze of politics blows through. Sometimes cool
enough to send a chill down your spine.

Dressers book is a thriller, but it is so much more. Wes is far from average,
and this shows in everything he attempts in both this book, and the second book
in the Wes Franklin series, The Methuselah Man.

I strongly recommend this fast paced book book. But when you finish reading it, do yourself
a favor and read The Methuselah Man. You will meet the team from this book, in an even more
fascinating and electrifying adventure. I look forward to book three in this series. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805986812, Paperback)

Dr. Wes Franklin - one-time child prodigy, now a member of a clandestine international intelligence network called The Cloister of Akhenaten - is summoned from his San Francisco home to the Netherlands for the funeral of a friend and colleague. Upon arriving in Amsterdam, Franklin learns that several other colleagues around the world have suddenly died; all of seemingly natural causes, and all Cloister members. Franklin's friend at The Hague believes these deaths are somehow linked to a series of cryptic-but threatening letters his office has received from somewhere in the Middle East, and needs Franklin's help to solve the mystery.

Then, in a near-fatal confrontation withi the henchmen of powerful Syrian businessman Osman Ghazi, Wes Franklin learns of an ungodly plot to unleash an unprecedented wave of terror in Europe, and Franklin and friends enter a race against time to discover how and where Ghazi will deliver his Sacrament of Fear.
