Reviews of Redemption Day (2012)
Review by michael a draper (2012-04-21)
"Redemption Manner" presents a puzzle that is written in an intelligent manner that catches the readers attention from the exciting beginning.
Supreme Court Justice Silvio Caprelli is kidnapped by a group of right winged militarists called Posse Comitatus. They are intent on creating a massive incident that will lead to the reshaping of the United States.
Nick has been a terrorism analyst for the government but is fired just prior to the kidnappng.
A co-worker calls Nick and tells him that a sheriff from West Virginia has information for him. Nick and the sheriff agree to meet at Nick's home but when Nick arrives, the sheriff has been killed with Nick's weapon making Nick the main suspect. He feels he has a better chance to prove his innocence if he investigates things himself so goes into hiding.
Tension mounts as the story moves back and forth from the members of the group, to Nick and the officials trying to stop them. Kidnappers are alerted that Nick is on their trail and he becomes a target of them also.
It's a noble thought to see what one man can do when faced with tremendous odds and Nick demonstrates that for us.
The action is well described and as the terrorists close in on their objectives, the scenes are described with cinimatic excellence.
This is a wonderful novel with excellent, well developed characters and a compelling plot.
