Review: “The Phoenix Egg” by Richard A. Bamberg

Posted on Updated on

Caitlin Maxwell is on the phone with her husband when he is involved in a highway accident. At first, totally distraught over the fact that he might be dead, she doesn’t make the connection between his accident and a subsequent attempt on her life in the expensive, high-security apartment where she lives. Thwarted by the apartment security officials, and viewed with skepticism by the police officer who comes to investigate her assault complaint, she strikes out on her own. When another attempt is made on her life, she turns to the enigmatic John Blalock for help.

Caitlin and Blalock quickly find themselves pursued by agents of the U.S. Government, Japanese industrial spies, and a French security official; all seeking something Caitlin has. Unfortunately, she doesn’t know what she has. Blalock has to use all his wits to keep them alive while they seek answers.

This is the way The Phoenix Egg starts; searing action from the first page; action that continues to climb page after page, reaching an explosive conclusion. Richard A. Bamberg has crafted a well thought out thriller, with action, suspense, and romance that devotees of the genre will appreciate. Formatting in the e-book format is a bit distracting, but, only mildly so, as are some of the long flashbacks, which, while being action-packed themselves, disrupt the flow of the current story a bit.

These two minor flaws are the only negative things I have to say about The Phoenix Egg, because it’s a must-read book that, the flaws notwithstanding, won’t disappoint.
