American, Die. A Philip Eckstein Thriller
American, Die. A Philip Eckstein Thriller - Falko Rademacher In ‘American, Die,’ Philip finds himself caught between his conscience and what turns out to be a not-so-crazy story when a man claiming to be pursued by the NSA comes into his office. What starts off as just another job for the private detective, soon becomes a tangled web of cover-ups, spies, and government agents who won’t stop till they have Philip’s newest friend, Sam.

Falko Rademacher’s realistic and complex characters never fail to entertain, and thriller enthusiasts will not be disappointed. There is also a good amount of humor and twists that will keep you turning the pages and guessing what happens next. I found the conflicts between German and American norms that Philip faces to be highly entertaining as well, as the author brings a humorous light to the many differences between the two. Rademacher’s 'Philip Eckstein' series is one that is proving to get better with each installment, and I look forward to reading the next book!

review SPOILER ALERT! 2014-06-30 12:30
End of Enemies by Grant Blackwood
The End of Enemies - Grant Blackwood

An action-packed war novel with Briggs Tanner as the protagonist and hero. An international political drama for the drama seekers.

A few quotes from the book:"As a child, the surest way to get Briggs to take on a challenge was to tell him it was either impossible or the answer was a mystery."

As an agent of one of America's numerous government agencies, Briggs stumbled upon a man getting murdered in his presence. By probing the murder, he comes across an international crisis , instigated by a World War II secret, waiting to happen, with various countries involved, including Japan. The epicenter of the planned Doom's Day is Lebanon.

"For decades Lebanon had been the world’s chosen surrogate battlefield. Superpowers played their spy games, tested their weapons, exercised their tactics and strategies, and Lebanon paid in blood and ruination." 

"We’ve a better grasp of how funds are transferred from sponsor governments to the command structures of terrorist groups. Money is the key. We can’t dampen a terrorist’s fervor; we can’t cut off their source of training; and we can’t hope diplomatic measures will curtail covert support of these groups. "

The many typos hindered the story, but for readers interested in this kind of book, it is still a familiar and hopefully satisfying experience. It answers to the need for high-speed action, typical of modern war fare movies. It can become a good movie for war junkies indeed.

An easy read, text flowing smoothly along, characters well developed and the story line strong. It won't disappoint.
