My impressions: intelligent, idealistic, unwavering, high principles, tenacious.
Solomon Bull – Rebel, embraces challenges, proud of his Blackfoot heritage.
Cal Barrett – mysterious catalyst for Federal Government change.
What starts out as a bet between friends to lower the poll standing of a US Congressman turns into a passion to destroy his career publicly. When Solomon learns the man is a pedophile brutalizing a young Blackfoot boy his original stunt becomes a full-blown passion.
At the same time, Solomon has been training for weeks to win Desert Dog; a brutal one day endurance race in the 110 + degree Arizona desert. In addition to the fit male competitors he faces a team of five Amazons who will inflict pain and injuries on anyone who tries to keep them out of first place.
One of Solomon’s reasons for entering the race is to learn what happens to previous winners who have all disappeared from public view. The mysterious and enigmatic Cal Barrett sponsors the once yearly race from his compound in the desert. Finally, Solomon learns Barrett’s goal and how he plans to return government’s power back to the state level.
The editing is not bad, but there are a few word errors.
Sentence structure is good and character development is good for the two main characters plus several sub characters to a lesser degree.
Research is evident in the details relating to endurance racing and the history of the defeat of the American Indian Nations by despicable white men.
The plot is fresh and complex in spite of the pages spent on Solomon’s self-introspection and American Indian history.
The writing style is wordy and preachy.
There are many characters in the story but only two of them really impact the plot and the ending.
I recommend Solomon Bull to readers who enjoy action adventure and detailed accounts of endurance training and other physical activities.
