OK. Crossroads does not belong to the genre of choice for me, but I've come to know Steven Nedelton and I had to admit, his book sounded interesting, so why limit myself, I thought. So here's my take: This is a plot-driven, fast-paced, spy thriller that seems to incorporated a lot of research and keen literary skill. I'm very glad I picked up this book, and thanks to Nedelton, I'm in the market for an occasional thriller. To recommend this book, I have to resort a reviewer's cliché: I couldn't p

What if you had the ability to control someone’s actions and thoughts from a distance and they would be none the wiser? What if you could connect with another person from a distance telepathically and know what they were thinking, doing and what their inner-most thoughts were? What would you do if you were a major player in a government’s plot to find out the strategies of other countries at war and you were capable of controlling the outcome?

Prepare yourself for an exciting ride. Steven Nedelton writes a thrilling novel about espionage and twisted stories. With interesting and dark characters such as Tallman, Tatiana, and Mikhail, Nedelton writes a plot-filled story about spies during the Cold War.

Giving too much of the plot away will ruin the suspense that lasts throughout the entire novel. Therefore, a brief outline of the back cover plot is all that should be given to first-time readers.

I started reading this book a few months ago and put it down, which I really don't like doing. Once in the right mindset, I picked it up again and started over and couldn't put it down! Nedelton spins a very believable spy story; one that most likely could be true or still be happening today.

Can you imagine being able to hypnotize someone to carry out a murder plot from the other side of the world? I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great spy novel!

Espionage/spy thriller stories are not my preferred genre, but "Crossroads" sounded interesting and I decided to give it a read. I was not disappointed. Mr. Nedelton obviously did a lot of research for this book and delivers all the action and intrigue the genre calls for. Mind control (scary!), the Cold War, spies and cold-blooded murderers make this a must-read for espionage fans.

Steve Nedelton leads you through a suspenseful spy thriller that unmasks the danger and threats that made the Cold War so scary. It moves back and forth between Russia and the US like a well planned chess match. It is filled with suspense and intrigue- a page-turner that should not be missed.
Steven Nedelton writes awesome books. I would highly recommend this book to readers!!!!!!!
