The Watchman of Ephraim (Cris De Niro, Book 1)

The Watchman of Ephraim (Book Club Edition) - Gerard de Marigny A successful hedge fund entrepreneur is on his way to meet his wife, who is pregnant, at the twin towers. Disaster strikes as two planes crash into the towers killing his wife and unborn child. He makes the decision that this can never happen again and decides to recruit the elite from the marines, secret services and government to set up an independent agency to ensure the terrorists never succeed again. Whilst setting up the agency, an Iranian businessman along with a Mexican drug cartel infiltrate the new agency by buying one of the board members, but when an undercover agent, from the agency, goes missing, then turns up dead, the bribed board member panics. What is the real reason for the link between the Iranian and the drug cartel? Can the agency find out who has betrayed them and discover the link? Is it a question of National Security? Can they react in time to save the country? For a real page turning thriller with twists and one which keeps the reader hooked, read this book. Billed as a thriller and page turner, the book definitely did not disappoint. The story kept me on the edge of my seat with no idea which way the plot was going to turn, which is exactly the type of book I love. The storyline and research shown throughout the book was first class, you really feel the emotions of all the characters and really getting a real gist of how both sides felt. The writing style used was very easy to follow and digest, therefore adding to the excitement and tension that was created. The storyline is a very topical one which will provoke discussion to whoever reads it. I believe this is the most important part of any novel, the discussions afterwards, and I believe this is a book which will be wildly discussed which will in itself builds a good novel and one which will live on and on. I can imagine each and every character as the author brings every one of them to life and you can imagine yourself in the background, whether it is the boardroom scene or when he is describing the ranch the hero owns, again first class and superlative. This is a book I will be definitely recommending, as a debut I found it to be absolutely amazing. I think I could read a lot more of the authors writings. A first rate, excellent and up to date thriller, which will, and should, cause a great debate about the issues of the storyline for a long time to come.
