This book was really, really good. It was action packed from beginning to end. I could hardly wait to finish and see what would happen.
Christian Laforet
When a group of men calling themselves the Sword Masters begin lopping off heads in New York city, homeland security director Robert Grimmson, is put on the case.

With no leads on who these men are, or what they want, he finds himself investigating a new arrival to the country, Alexander Suten-Mdjai. The thing that puts Suten-Mdjai on Robert’s radar? Nothing big…except that the man just imported thousands of swords into the country and calls himself a sword master.

Lest the Dew Rust Them is a pret

Enter the crime scene. It's a beheading and there are tripod marks on the floor in the blood. Terrorism?

The author smoothly, quickly and concisely paints each character and scene in the book so that you do more than read about them, you understand them. Rather than spend pages on character development this author effectively achieves the same effect within just a few paragraphs.

I LOVE how he switches between character perspectives at exactly the right time so you get the round-robin effected sce

What I first noticed about the book, is its unique title. It sure doesn't sound like an average book title, does it? Anyhow moving on to the story..

Reviewer: John
Rating: 3 out of 5 Fairies

The book has good & bad points; the concept behind it is quite good, especially in the light of the recent horrific event in the UK, with terrorists out to scare middle America with small scale atrocities, a series of beheadings. The group is not too well explained & appears to be a random mix of members, with no real political aim and a couple of them in it just for the kicks!

The book contains a number of historical references which actually take

Roni’s Rosebuz Review:
Overall: 3 of 5
This book had a lot of good features, but for me it could have been better with some basic modifications. The cursing and unnecessary use of the Lord’s name detracted to the story. I will say, though, that I was surprised at how well the story-within-story scheme worked with this novel. I am impressed. The characters were believable and the action was definitely not lacking. Overall, a good novel.
Family friendliness: 1 of 5

My Review: This one of the best suspense thrillers I have read in a long time. Homegrown terrorist take it new a new level in New York preforming decapitations on their victims and posting them on the internet. Homeland security is stumped and so are local police. Weave in a true sword master of ancient lineage and the Russian mob and things get dicey fast. This book had me turning the pages. I highly recommend this to anyone. It could use a edited as there are a few rough patches with extra wor ...more
