Silencing the Thunder
Susan Dax is coerced by the American Intelligence into not only aiding an unethical shady friend, who has been captured and imprisoned, but also to look into the theft of an undisclosed weapon. The developing plot takes her from the easy confines of Washington, DC, to Yemen, across the Middle East and the Mediterranean—ending with her being double-crossed, captured, and at the mercy of an extremist intent on poisoning and delving a crippling blow to the American public. The caper’s involving Stevenson Mukoro’s masterly creation of Susan Dax is a sexy English compliment to Lara Croft and Fleming’s James Bond. She and Mr. Seymour Krakauer have lost none of their influence and constant-moving action flurry. The ambiance of raw espionage and no-holds barred fight scenes come floating back like biting cordite smoke. The Susan Dax series of novels now number eight titles.
