Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Lucifer Code by Charles Brokaw

Thomas Lourds’ linguistic talents land him in another intriguing mystery. A voluptuous colleague, a nubile IRA assassin and a secret society assist Lourds in solving a mystery of biblical proportions. The forces of evil marshal to thwart Lourds in solving a linguistic nightmare that purports to change the world.

As in the Atlantis Code, Brokaw paints vivid characters with strong characteristics. His main protagonist, Thomas Lourds, is a world famous linguist of immense sex appeal who unlike Indiana Jones attempts to avoid any physical confrontation outside of the bedroom. Lourds avoids being a caricature by being rescued from harm by his female companions. Although Lourds seems to be in good physical condition, he doesn’t seem to have any self defense abilities. Brokaw is often compared to Dan Brown in his story telling. Brokaw paints his verbal portrait with a broader brush and less detail. That does not detract from the enjoyment of the story. My only complaint is that he could add another 50 pages or so and add a little more detail.

As in the Atlantis Code, don’t anticipate a great deal of cerebral activity just lean back and relish the action.

I recommend the book.
