BOOK REVIEW: From The Ashes by due May 15


Review by Ryder Islington

High praise for this fantastic voyage called From The Ashes. Call it a mystery, suspense or thriller, the story keeps moving forward with page turning prose. I was hooked from the prologue. This story is right up there with Hunt For Red October and The Sum Of All Fears. Look out Tom Clancy.

 When Jonathan Rickner’s brother, Michael, dies while working on a research project, cops tell Jonathan that his brother committed suicide. But Jon knows better. He, along with Mara, his brother’s fiancé, must find the truth. What they learn is an unbelievable tale of historical, political, financial intrigue involving World War II, Hitler, John D. Rockefeller, a secret governmental agency called The Division, and Operation Phoenix. It is an incredible story. A scary story, mostly because it is a believable story.

 Jeremy Burns is going to be a force to be reckoned with. I have not seen this kind of writing for a long time. Granted, I have not read every book published in the last decade, but this book is evidence of high caliber writing on the rise from Mr. Burns.

 I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, as well as those who love thrillers. Set aside some time for this one. You won’t want to stop reading.
