Présentation de l'éditeur

Detective Sam Reeves is barely seated in a cab when he learns that during his two-week trip in Southeast Asia, hate crimes have rocked his city of Portland, including one very brutal lynching. As the crimes continue, thousands of fearful protestors march the streets, clashing with police and demanding more be done to put an end to the escalating violence!

Reassigned to the Intelligence Unit following his “bad shoot” several months ago, Sam is quickly consumed day and night, trying to deal with his city’s horrors. When he finally gets some leads, he realizes that there’s one big problem. While the bad guys pack bats, knives, and rifles, Sam has a crippling fear about carrying a loaded gun!

One thing is for sure: Sam is about to confront violent haters—and his personal demons—in a showdown that will shake the very foundation of his city.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As Good As It Gets 14 août 2014
Par Charles F. Kartman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This series is as good as it gets. The characters are richly drawn and become people you care about, and the sense of place is completely authentic. The previous volume was exotically placed in Vietnam, with a cast of unusual characters and Sam's father very much in charge. I would have loved to read another book following up those events.

Instead, Sam returns to Portland and the police force, and meets some new, interesting characters. Mai soon joins him, but his father Samuel appears only in cameos, via Skype. This volume is more of a police procedural/urban noir, and some of its drama stems from Sam's inability to carry his gun ... thus, "Unloaded".

The bad guys/gals are white supremacists, and I can't say that there is much that is original in the plot. The characters and action, on the other hand, are wonderfully fresh. I won't say more about them lest I spoil things for you, but one of the things I most like about Sam is that he is regularly caught by surprise, takes lots of punishment, and suffers from demons that are all too human. So when good things happen to him, or he dishes out some pain to the other side, I was all the more pleased for him. He is a talented good guy, not a superman.

I marvel at Mr. Christensen's authentic dialogues and atmosphere, and eagerly look forward to the next volume.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Yet another amazing addition to the "Dukkha" series 1 juin 2014
Par Kevin S. Faulk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A third book in and Loren Christensen's turn at fiction writing gets more and more refined.

This book puts us back in the U.S. (from Vietnam in the last), and expect returning characters and the same top-notch martial arts action scenes. One of the best words I can use for this series is "authentic." Christensen has poured into this book a lifetime of experience in warrior professions (Vietnam veteran and retired police officer) and martial arts training.

I was recommending this series to a friend recently and told him that the best way I can describe the writing is by saying it's not up its own rear-end. You aren't going to find anything pretentious in here, the prose is grounded, gritty, and real. You won't regret the purchase. I can't wait for the next in the series!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This series just keeps getting better and better 5 juin 2014
Par L. A. Kane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Dukkha Unloaded is a fast-paced, riveting tale that deftly handles deep subjects like violence, PTSD, and race relations in a compelling yet unpretentious manner. Christensen’s experience as a soldier, law enforcement officer, and martial artist lends a gritty realism that’s sadly lacking in similar stories. It’s enthralling, entertaining, and consequential, so good you may not realize that you’re actually learning something when reading it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fast packed action thriller filled with hate crimes. 18 novembre 2014
Par Carolyn Injoy-Hertz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I received a free kindle copy of Dukkha Unloaded, A Sam Reeves Martial Arts Thriller, by Loren W. Christensen from NetGalley published by YMAA Publication Center, Inc. in exchange for a fair review. I gave it four stars.

It was action packed & fast moving. While this is the third Sam Reeves Martial Arts Thriller, I found it could stand alone. The author is clearly an expert in martial arts & demonstrates his knowledge in the telling of this story. Sam continues teaching his classes in the basement of an accomodating church since his building had been destroyed.

Following a shooting, Sam did not carry a weapon even though his job as a police officer required it. There were times he endangered himself & others by carrying an empty gun. Can he overcome his issues to shoot when it's necessary?

He was ironically moved into the Intelligence Unit gathering 'hate crimes'. Sadly he finds information about far too many of them. Dukkha translates as 'life suffering' & that is revealed even more in learning about hate crimes.

I liked the interaction between Sam, his father & Mai. They were fully fleshed likeable characters. There were times that Mai's 'accent' was overdone, I think for effect some of the time. Rudy was thoroughly likeable. Their chance encounter has potential for a long term friendship. Nate was also likeable but painstakingly troubled. He was a loaded weapon just waiting to explode.

The main villains were utterly despicable. One of the lesser villains was pitiful. For me it was a difficult book to read. The hate crimes & negative pejoratives that go with them pour off these pages with virulent intensity. It was hard to read because with the nature of hate, this could happen.

If you want a fast read, this is for you. It was a page turner that kept me up at night.
