Loved this book Was never any slow parts Action packed all the way I rate him with Brad Thor A great read Lethal Conspiracy author, Gary Fuller, brings an impressive pedigree to thriller writing Not only does he have a PhD,importantly, given the plot of his novel, Fuller is a retired U.S Air Force officer with military intelligence experience My guess is that Fuller combines his hands on experiences his bio mentions Iran and Iraq with extensive research to write about the current Middle East conflicts with depth and authority His grasp of military and political issues is the strength of his novel Which is not to say that Lethal Conspiracy fails to deliver action After introducing Dr Steven Grant, a Columbia University professor of political science and special assistant to the UN Secretary General, two events propel the story forward one, Grant is recruited by the C.I.A to identify a terrorist cell formed inside the United Nations, and two, Grant meets Samantha, a highly successful New York psychologist Character development, however, is not as skillfully done as plot or action At times I had difficulty keeping track of secondary characters More importantly, and why I did not to give the book five stars, Fuller makes two mistakes that weaken the novel One, upon introducing a character, Fuller inevitably gives the reader a biographical sketch, which has the feel of someone cutting and pasting from character bio notes Evenbothersome is the romance between Steven and Samantha The story hinges on the reader believing that after one date Steven and Samantha are so deeply attracted that Steven would risk his life for her, and perhaps in doing so, risk nuclear war in the Middle East Okay, I accept love at first sight I even experienced it once But the Steven Sam romance feels unbelievable here Even so, Lethal Conspiracy is good, and I recommend it to thriller fans. Lethal Conspiracy by Gary Fuller is an interesting blend of sophisticated dating alongside a terrorist plot In the opening pages, we are introduced to a new terror cell that has not only forcibly aligned the smaller terror organizations of the Middle East into one coordinated unit, but has also planted members into the hierarchy of the United Nations Their mission is simple destroy the Little Satan and the Great Satan Israel and the United States The method the group plans to take is muchdynamic and terrifying use the UN to force the United States to remove all troops from the Middle East while sparking a nuclear war between Iran and Israel that will wipe Israel off the map Caught in the middle are Steven and Sam Steven is a political science professor and consultant at the UN in New York Sam is a high level psychiatrist who uses her skills to help political figures The two meet through a discreet dating site and are whisked into a romance almost as fast as they are whirled into the lethal conspiracy.Lethal Conspiracy takes the reader from the war torn streets of the Middle East to the sky rises of New York City The story is very well researched and the writer has a strong understanding, not only of the desires of groups in the Middle East, but also of the fears that Americans face when thinking about terrorism It is a different story from others like it because it does not focus on a military organization of federal effort to stop a terrorist plot Rather, it takes a real character with real problems and puts them into an extreme situation I feel this is a fresh approach to the conspiracy story idea.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Lethal Conspiracy book, this is one of the most wanted Gary Fuller author readers around the world.
