  1. The author, Petersen, has clearly done his homework on the 2002 coup d etat attempt in Venezuela, the CIA and general information about the area at the time Unfortunately he wants you to know he has done his homework by cramming every single little detail of information into his narrative, to the point in which is slows to a sluggish pace This book did not feel like it was an 8.5 hour book It felt much, much longer.Similarly he has built in depth profiles for every single one of his character an [...]


  2. I met Alan Petersen at a meetup group in San Francisco designed to help authors make the most of and other book marketing tools He ran a great meeting, so naturally I decided to head straight for his thriller, The Asset, which is selling quite well After reading it, I say it deserves those sales and .Pete Maddox is a special ops vet with a bright CIA career ahead of him The book opens with an exciting Colombian anti terrorist operation which Maddox heads up and which goes without a hitch Next th [...]


  3. I didn t know what to expect from this read but I was pleasantly surprised I think I have found a new author to place in my goto bag The Asset was fast paced in all of the correct spots and detailed when it needed to be It took me a chapter or two to get used to the writing style but after that I was off to the races With myself being a writer my mind went crazy with a million different ideas for Pete Maddox and a million different endings I am glad to see that this has turned into a series and [...]


  4. Outstanding readOver the years I have read thousands of books I love a book that I can really get into, that will hold my attention until the very last page The Asset just did that The story line was totally believable Having worked for the government myself in a law enforcement capacity I have experienced the politics that goes on when an assignment goes sideways Mr Petersen obviously researched his work very thoroughly and produced a great read Thank you sir I am looking forward to reading of [...]


  5. I received a free e copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review It is very apparent that the author is very familiar with the political climate in South America, especially the reign of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and the CIA The characters and plot are well developed and this is a well written political spy thriller I found the book a little slow to start but once the story got going it was full of twists, turns, secrets, surprises, evil characters, and excitement Looking fo [...]


  6. The story was good, the characters pretty lively and a bit of romance got into it too The reason for 2 stars was the way of writing, no emotions, suspense only in your own imagination It was written like a grocery list or a to do list honestly, that is how i felt about it It was like the author wanted to be done, point by point writing it down and to be done with it Good story, boring to read


  7. Take out the terrorist Sounds easy enough for bad ass Pete Maddox until the organization he s working for messes with his woman To make things worse, the hellish secret police, The Sadist, are closing in Grab a copy and hang on The action is fast and tight.



  8. First time that I have read anything by this author and in my opinion it is OK If he writes , I will probably read it.
