4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, March 29, 2014
By Omoni "koreamom" (Chantilly, Virginia USA) - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Survival of Thomas Ford (Kindle Edition)
This book was absolutely mesmerizing. I couldn't stop reading it. The characters were so well drawn and I have fantastic visual images of all of them that carried me thru the book. I felt as tho there were times that I was looking right into the face of evil in more than one of the characters. The book was fast paced, well thought out, and moved with a rapid pace right up thru the end. It was not tied up in a neat little bow and I was left to decide for myself what happened to some of the characters. Certainly not an uplifting book but some goodness did shine thru. I would definitely recommend the book.


Thanks very much, Omoni, and thanks very much to everyone who has downloaded!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hitchcockian he-story expertly wrapped into a she-story, May 10, 2014
By Scriblerus "Scriblerus" - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Agency Woman (Kindle Edition)
One reader's notes about this book say:

Brilliant. A Htitchcockian he-story expertly wrapped into a she-story.

Uncertain moral framework, goals, purpose - in keeping with the incomprehensibility of modern life.

Absolute sureness of style ... Language honed: polished steel.

Not as much stabbing, shooting, bleeding, etc., as in The Survival of Thomas Ford ... no sooner had I written that and returned to the book than there was a smashed skull and dangling eyeball, on my very next e-page.

Funny, self-mocking.

Horror less unbearable than in TSoTF because the Highlands setting is setting is so marvellous to imagine.

V. good on fugue states, altered states, hallucinatory states, ... fevered brain ... etc..

Kafkaesque in the mysterious ness of the 'they'.

Pacing is almost uniformly excellent.

Not as lyrical as TSoTF ... Action is all, in this book, though it can be more internal than external.

... My five stars are for the quality of JAAL's prose and for the insight in this book into the evolution of relationships between men and women, about which I have written here: What John A. A. Logan, master of the literary thriller noir, adds to startling revelations about the gender dance ...

*********************
A lost, wandering and damaged man finds himself drafted back into the world he thought he had escaped, when the local branch of a powerful, international Agency needs a mysterious job done in the remote Highlands of Scotland.
The new companion who leads him out of disaffected early retirement is a seductive, young, novice female agent, but could there really be far more to her than there at first seems?
They find themselves in a world of natural beauty, mountain and beach, which they will only contaminate with extraordinary rendition, abduction, bloodshed and torture.
The modern bureaucratic world of paperwork and subcontracting will mean that no-one actually knows which government or country is behind the operation, but one man will soon remember why he left Agency work like this and why he hates it so much, even though it may really be love that has dragged him back into it all.

A dark, Scottish tale of conspiracy, espionage, murder and terrorism, with an existential edge, and the spirit of an ancient mountain looming at its centre.

***********************
"Immense depths" Ignite, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

"Poise and power in a dramatic Highland thriller" C. U. Usher, Amazon reviewer

Hope everyone enjoys, and Merry Christmas!
