Androcide: the systematic killing of men, boys, or males in general.
My Impressions: brutal, well written, psychopath, intriguing characters, personal political viewpoint injected.
Sara Houston – Top of FBI wanted list, framed for murder of Vice President and terrorist activities, Intel 1.
Francisco Lopez – Defrocked priest, deadly member of Intel 1
Nader Zaringhalam – Double agent, hacker, member of Intel 1
Elaine York – President of the United States of America
Det. Tyrell Sacker – New York Police, alcoholic, wears a goofy Ice Topper Hat, suited for formal wear with a Tux.
P.I. Grace Gone – Handicapped, brilliant, Asian heritage. Also Biological research expert.
Androcide is an action packed thriller. It starts as two separate stories that begin to converge about halfway through the book. The three main characters listed first are members of Intel 1, a covert action group reporting directly to Elaine York, POTUS. They have saved the country from a mysterious group name Bilderberg. There are vague references to the second civil war and an atomic bomb exploded in Kansas. A terrorist named Nemesis is the last agent of Bilderberg and Intel 1 chases her to prevent her from reorganizing.
Det. Tyrell Sacker is assigned the case of dead, nude men whose genitals have been removed before they were staged about the city. P.I. Grace Gone wrangles her way into Sacker’s investigation against the direct orders of Sacker’s superiors.
All of the characters are larger than life and all have deep personal secrets that affect their emotions and performance. Only vague hints of these secrets are given, but from that I judged them to be extreme.
The editing and sentence structure are excellent.
Character Development is in depth for the main characters
Details are often sketchy or steeped in medical and research terms most readers will have little knowledge of.
The plot was excellent until the author injected his personal political view point and relied on exaggerations and outright lies to vent his opinion.
The author’s writing style is fast paced and full of medical and research jargon.
I was engrossed in the story until caricatures of current US politicians were injected and distorted by exaggeration and outright lies to fit the author’s partisan view.
