Peter quickl I was pleasantly surprised by the refreshing writing style and entertaining story told by Gordon S. Peter quickly evolves into a living, breathing man with a heavy weight on his shoulders as events transpire which change his life forever. Writing a character who grows and changes throughout a story is a challenging task for any author and Dr. Black does it well. The variety of story elements really drew me in and made this book hard to put down.
The twists and turns in the plot helped reel me in.

The inclusion of so many historically timely events and themes make this a compelling and enjoyable read. For that reason, I'll definitely buy the sequel when it's published. Give this book a try and you won't be disappointed! Apr 17, Trip rated it it was amazing. Quite simply, this is one of the most timely works of fiction I have read in quite some time - while it has significant political undertones, it is not at all about politics on the surface but weaves religion, special interests, intrigue, romance, the national mood and majority "factions" and down right great writing into a single novel - for which there should be a sequel.
