GRIPPING, PAGE TURNING COMPLEX PLOT
on 19 August 2014
Jack Gregory lies dying in a hospital in the slums of Calcutta. his terrible wounds inflicted in the savage fight he’s had with Carlton “Priest” Williams, the person he holds responsible for the murder of his brother. Sister Mary Judith came across his body and dragged him back to her very sparse clinic and watches as his life drains away.
Jack has always heard about the white tunnel that one passes through when dying, but his tunnel is more like a grey fog - he’s given a chance to accept Anchanchu, a brain worm, (who had occupied many people like Caligula, Nero and most notorious of all, Jack the Ripper). He gives Jack the chance to accept him and return to life. Jack decides that he’ll take the offer, (not fully understanding what this will entail in his future!)
In the year since his “rebirth”, Jack has taken on several clients with problems that needed sorting. His latest client, Rachel Koenig employs him as she’s convinced that Vladimir Roskov, leader of a Russian Mafia, has a hold over her husband, Rolf, a brilliant scientist building a machine that is intended to help look for minerals on the moon and other planets, bringing untold wealth to all who have bought into his scheme.
Jack very quickly discovers that not all is as it seems and finds that he’s facing enemies from all sides including a rogue group within the CIA. (His ex-employers)
I’m struggling to come up with a description that will push you into purchasing this book. I wanted to describe it as sipping a beautiful cabernet, but somehow with so many dead bodies, thought it would be inappropriate!
Normally I’m a fast reader, but I found myself re-reading some sections just for the pure enjoyment of the words the author had written. I was completely drawn in to this amazing plot, and felt like I had become intimate with each of the characters.
Thank you Richard Phillips for writing this brilliant, complex story. I’m sad that I have to bid farewell to Jack Gregory and his reluctant partner, Janet Price and can only hope that there will be another book in this series in the very near future. - Treebeard
