Review: A THOUSAND EYES by Junior Burke


I totally loved this novel! Riveting, engrossing, compelling--I couldn't turn away. The author has a gift for understanding human nature as well as corporate nature. I immediately found my side and took my stand. In small-town Colorado, sheltered under the Rockies, the only industry has ever been a sole cement plant, progeny of the founder. Seven years ago, a new manager arrived, as the plant is now under ownership of a multinational. Suffused with greed, h

I read the Kindle edition.

Ned Haddock is the mayor of Lynton, Colorado. It is a small community. He is arguing with Lowell Felker, manager of Mentex Colorado. Ned wants to pull out of a deal for rezoning. He cites the death of a recent town resident named Frank KIncaid. He says the man was poisoned through Mentex’ carelessness. Ned privately believes that agreeing to Mentex’ demands would be selling out the community.

Cinda Rigg is a local police officer and animal control officer. She is

A Thousand Eyes' is a tale from both the human and animal viewpoints -some in accordance and some at discord.
The wild is taking this new threat "into their own Paws"! An elderly Native American mediator has tried to reason with them. Innocent people are dying. He wants no part of it.
Before leaving the area, he leaves a short note for the one person he feels might be able to help.
This is a graphically violent story of human's, sometimes, negative affect on the animal kingdom.
Although this review

"A Thousand Eyes" is an interesting "nature fights back against evil corporations" type of book which is actually told from both animal and human points of view.
Todd Wendt is at a very low point in his life when he is sent to a small town to work with a corporation he discovers to be shady and corrupt as are many of the townspeople. At the same time, Todd becomes aware of a series of vicious animal attacks that are aimed at the company and also himself as well.
I enjoyed the novel though found

In a fascinating hybrid one might call a “paranormal environmental thriller,” A Thousand Eyes wraps the tropes of a nail-biting “Dear God, what’s that behind the fog?!” horror story with a clear and sharp statement about ecological responsibility and the intrinsic value of clear air and water.

Bringing in Native American mysticism, the interconnected telepathy of the animal kingdom, and well-worn notions of human greed and narcissism, the story isn’t afraid to mix this unusual brew to both make

Animals can take revenge too.

When a series of strange deaths connected to a near cement plant occur, Todd Wendt is asked by the company headquarters to investigate why these deaths are happening.

While investigating, he discovers that the plant has some secrets that are harming the community and the wildlife in the area. He and many others could become the next victim, but who is doing these horrendous killings? And can they be stopped? Should they be stopped?

This book is excellent. It is an ecol

This novel was somewhat tossed off by the author. It pretends to be a kind of B-movie horror story where the animals (set in the Boulder Colorado area) start murdering people who are connected with a company that is polluting the environment. Parts of it (very effective) are through the eyes of the animals. It also delves into the local music scene (Burke is an accomplished songwriter and performing artist) and there is a horrific sub-plot where a young innocent guitarist suffers a terrible inju ...more

A story that builds perfectly, and daringly raises questions we out to ask, all in the guise of a mystery. Everyone should read this book.

A Thousand Eyes is a new thriller with the subtle implications of something supernatural set in a small town in northern Colorado town where man and nature collide.

This author has a lot of promise and has definitely taken some serious pointers from Stephen King, as King's influence and style is obvious and clearly strewn throughout the novel. The characters and their motivations are shallow but clear, and the cast fairly bland as a result; complete with mysterious individual of First Nations des

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This was a very unusual book--nothing like I was expecting. I loved that the point of view shifted between the people dealing with the situations (that some of them caused) and the creatures trying to rectify them. This perspective initiated a fresh new opportunity for me to think about the impact of people on the Earth and its inhabitants. (One piece that was maybe out of place was some of the Native American c ...more

Poison is being spewed by Mentex concrete plant. People are dying from both. In this thriller from Junior Burke, we find a town that is dying from a concrete plant that no one wants to talk about. The guilty won't walk away and the innocent may not get out soon enough. There are plans within plans with almost ...more

I am reviewing this book for Junior Burke, John Hunt Publishing Ltd, and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review.
This grips you from the beginning and you soon want to find out more. It’s nothing like you have read before. A great storyline.
