This was a first-read free book. The book is scheduled for publication

Initially, this seemed to be a run-of-the-mill thriller. All the expected ingredients are there; covert government agencies, executives with questionable motives, the millionaire industrialist with a villainous drive, the reclusive tough guy hero with a misunderstood past, the professor and his assistant who are in over their heads, double-crossing insiders, etc. After the set-up in the first part of the book though, things really get interesting. I won't divulge any of the details, but it is a good story about an Amazon expedition that goes a bit haywire. The group is on a quest for a treasure that could change the world, but meets resistance from a variety of enemies. The story is a combination of adventure thriller, horror and sci-fi, and it's well written, with nicely developed details of archeology, Mayan history, bio-tech, etc. I'm looking forward to the sequel, which is apparently in the works.

Tracey How do you like Black Rain so far?


Mark It's shaping up like a Dirk Pitt adventure with a female protagonist, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. So far so good....
