This review is from: The Geronimo Breach (Action / Conspiracy Thriller) (Kindle Edition)
The first three chapters introduce us to our main characters; Albert `Al' Ross, a drunken, gambling, womanizer working for the State Department in Panama: Ernesto, The Cook, a Columbian working in Panama: and Sam Wakefield, also State Department based in Panama. The hero of our story is Al and he is a very unlikely hero. A drunk who smokes too much, weighs too much, and doesn't know a good thing when he sees it. You will find that it is hard to like him.
Ernesto loses his job, leaving with something that does not belong to him. He soon comes to regret taking it and then needs to get out of town in a hurry. Enter Al, who moonlights in the freelance transportation business courtesy of his diplomatic passport.
Things go from bad to worse to really bad.
The book is written in an entertaining style which is very amusing but never over-the-top or too much. I had trouble putting this book down. The Kindle formatting was excellent. The writing was excellent.
If you want to feel what it is like to be trekking through one of the most dangerous parts of the world without actually getting bitten yourself, get this book. Highly recommended.
(One note: the story ends at 87% on the Kindle because of two book excerpts.)
I read the Kindle edition (Manana Publishing, August 2011, 271p) which I downloaded for free during a promotion.
