Robert Ludlum's The Cassandra Compact (Covert-One Series)
Robert Ludlum

Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Covert-One, the president's personal, super-secret agency formed after some recent virus-driven chaos (The Hades Factor, cowritten with Gayle Lynds), is staffed by an unknown number of international covert operatives, including Dr. Jon Smith, late of the USAMRIID. And a good thing, too, because someone's helped themselves to Russia's share of the world's last two stores of the smallpox virus, an eradicated yet hideously deadly bug with no ready vaccine.

That the pox was nabbed and who nabbed it is clear enough early on. Why such a seemingly large and disparate cadre of global citizens (keeping the players straight puts one in mind of Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First" routine) chose to pinch the bug and for what end are the novel's driving questions. Freelance Serbian uber-nasty, Ivan Beria, is among the...

Babylon Rising: The Europa Conspiracy
Tim LaHaye

September 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From AudioFile
Dr. Michael Murphy, prominent archaeologist, is drawn to the Middle East in search of Noah's Ark and the ancient Philosophers' Stone. The global plot to take over the world and kill Christians, with its blatant salvation message, makes for a poorly plotted, contrived, and preachy novel. The author portrays Murphy as an Indiana Jones knock-off, fearless and hard-driving, but Jason Culp's delivery does not match the action. Culp handles a multiplicity of characters, with a variety of ages and genders, but the overall delivery sounds old and tired. The cliff-hanger ending leaves the listener feeling betrayed. It's all very disappointing from the likes of Tim LaHaye. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Audio CD ...

Book Review
Sibling trilogies are fast becoming Nora Roberts's forte. Sea Swept tells the tale of three brothers--all former juvenile delinquents adopted by Raymond Quinn and his wife, Stella. Cameron, Ethan, and Philip are as different as can be, but they are bound by their love and respect for their adoptive father, who has recently passed away. On his deathbed he asks his sons to look after their most recent brother, 10-year-old Seth, who--if the rumors are to believed--just may be Ray's biological son. Of course, the brothers don't know anything about caring for the young boy, and if social worker Anna Spinelli has anything to say about it, they won't. However, the sparks that fly over the fate of Seth are nothing compared to the romantic sparks that fly between Anna and Cameron. Nora Roberts once again proves why she is the...

Trail of Feathers: Searching for Philip True: A Reporter's Murder in Mexico and His Editor's Search for Justice
Robert Rivard
158648222X
October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Philip True was the epitome of a reporter's reporter, at least as described in this moving account of his murder in a remote corner of western Mexico, written by his editor at the San Antonio Express-News, for which True was the Mexico City correspondent. In December 1998, despite a lack of editorial interest, True set off on a 10-day expedition into the canyons of the Sierra Madre, hoping to write a story on the region's Huichol Indians. Rivard's book follows the agonizing six-year-long process by which he and others worked to find out what happened to True. First, there was the discovery of True's hastily buried corpse (which Rivard helped dig out with his bare hands); then, the tortuous journey through the opaque Mexican legal system. Rivard thoroughly fleshes out True, a California hippie with a troubled...

Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
Jason Culp depicts Michael Murphy, biblical scholar, archaeologist, and professor, as an action figure reminiscent of Indiana Jones. LaHaye is the author of the wildly popular, and recently completed, Left Behind series. The second book of his new series features Murphy going up against his nemesis, Methuselah, who taunts the hero with clues that require him to repeatedly defy death in his search for Noah's Ark. Using flashbacks, Culp also portrays Noah, his family, and their journey on the Ark with a sense of adventure and innocence. Culp's taut reading style and brisk timing lead to palpable suspense. Although well done, the story's flashbacks demand attention, several subplots are unresolved, and the ending is too quick.
