Product description

About the Author

Lowhim served in the US Army as a Green Beret Engineer and graduated from Columbia University. He's been published in LA review of LA, Nine Line Anthology, and Afterwords. Born in the bubbling cauldron of Tanzania, where he picked up his first pen at the age of two and chewed. He's progressed much since then. He wrote his first story at 5, a knockoff of all the prince-saves-princess stories he'd read at the time. Life did not rest. It took him to India, then frigid Michigan. The shock, according to parent-sources, was a character building exercise. Lowhim, however, only remembered clenched fingers trying to write. Shorts about teen angst kept him going. Soon he was hitchhiking the mountainous American West where the outlaw locals kept his journal full of color. It wasn't long before he joined the US Army where the detritus of Babylon only furthered his literary ambitions. Iraq wasn't done with him. He would return, an engineer in 5th SFG. When he returned from this trip, he finished his first novel. Released upon the world, he attended Columbia University. He spent his free time writing and working with other authors. He graduated and has since been penning some of the most ambitious novels this side of that Pluto rock. Lowhim currently lives with his girlfriend in the Bronx. You can visit his blog at: http://nelsonlowhim.blogspot.com/ And you can sign up for book deals here: http://eepurl.com/DX2In His novels are: When Gods Fail (the series), The Struggle Trilogy, Tree of Freedom, and CityMuse

Format: Paperback
A "terrorist thriller"? Admittedly not my normal "cup of tea." In fact, the whole "action" genre, the cowboys with the white hats and black hats, well, I gave up on that a number of decades ago. However, I had been quite impressed with Nelson Lowhim's The Struggle Trilogy: 1. Lowhim was an American soldier in the Iraq War (well, one of them), and what impressed me was his thinking and depiction of those who opposed American efforts. Instead of the all-too-often abstract distillation of pure evil, the author presented many "gray hats," on both sides - just like in real life. And thus when this work came to my attention, I decided to step outside my usual "genre box," and see what he had to say.

And in many ways I was not disappointed. Lowhim stays true to his "gray hat" world-view, even in a genre not known for it. There was also the additional pull that much of the action takes place in a country I once visited as a tourist, and know I never will be able to again: the Yemen, or what the Romans once called "Arabia Felix," the happy part of Arabia because it was so green and fertile. One of the three principle characters, Ali, is a Yemeni. Lowhim depicts him as so very many of them are: fierce and proud, even though poor, and willing to die to defend his honor. Ali represents a people who were never (really) colonized, despite a few in-roads at Aden. The second principle character is the ironically named Justice, a CIA operative on the way up, he hopes, if his own reservations about what his Agency does - does not get in the way. And the third principle character is Dr. Noklar, not just any Pakistani, but the "father" of their atomic bomb.

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

A slightly different take on the "terrorist" thriller but a good one. Justice was a character you could really get behind he felt human and vulnerable in a way that most action characters just don't. Goes to places you would not see coming and felt like the author really knew these people and their stories.
Highly recommended.
