Since Richard Finney wowed me with his release of Drawing Blood in 2012, I was naturally eager to read more of his stuff. I’m not a science fiction expert if the story or premise is complicated – worlds which are too rarified have intimidated me to the point where I just “haven’t tried them yet,” but this turned out to be a clear cut sci-fi theme for the everyday reader. Perhaps it helps that I enjoy a side of horror or chills with my science fiction. And while this one wasn’t scary, it does hol ...more
First of all, this author knows how to write. Each novel he creates is an adventure in itself, whether part of a series or not. Each one features different worlds, unique, interesting characters, and exciting locales. "Black Mariah - A Calling", the first book in his latest series is no exception.

Whether it’s an alien artifact located in a Brazilian jungle, a South Carolina Red Wolf Preserve, a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean, or a secretive government operative center in Washingto

I've received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

"BLACK MARIAH - A Calling" is the first book in the BLACK MARIAH series. Think of it as the pilot episode of a tv show. We get to meet the characters and plunge into the mystery of Black Mariah, the alien hero... who turns out to be not so alien.

This is the kind of book where I can picture what I read with clarity - it's like a movie in my head.
I found the writing style very "clean", just perfect for this stor

I really enjoyed this book. It had my attention from the very beginning and had me wondering what was going to happen next. I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

Okay. Not great. Short. I'd maybe read more. Or not. Weird.

“All I see is my father’s tax money being wasted on shooting satellite pictures of South America like you guys work for the Travel Channel.

-- Todd Dooley (BLACK MARIAH - A Calling)”
“My father and I used to watch a ton of old horror movies when I was growing up. ’The Creature from the Black Lagoon‘ was one of my father’s favorites and he was very excited for me to see the film. But after the movie was over, I told him that I was kind of bored. I said to him, ‘I’m sorry, Daddy, but I saw the zipper in the back of the monster’s costume. From that point on, I was really never scared at all. The point I’m trying to make is that I don’t believe someone intentionally tipped off the target. And I maintain that no one made some horrendous mistake, which I’m now trying to cover up. I believe what really happened with the operation was that our target ended up seeing the zipper. Orlo Kharms realized something around him wasn’t… real. And he was able to avoid the trap we had laid out for him.” 2 likes
