White Jade brought me into the world of The Project. I loved meeting Elizabeth Harker, who has the `ear' of our President. She leads a small group of dedicated people at The Project. At our first meeting with her I knew what she stood for: Truth Justice and The American Way...Sound corny? No not to me.
Nick Carter has a second sight. This was left to him from his Irish Grandmother who had it as well. His left ear itches to warn him of trouble. It comes in handy for the line of work he is in. Nick lost Megan, the love of his life, and still hasn't come to terms with this. His infatuation with Selena Connor has been the first awakening of feelings in him for long time.
Dreams of war and bombs and death keep threatening him. Selena has lost her family and was raised by an Uncle who was brutally murdered in White Jade. She has now joined The Project team. Elizabeth Harker, her assistant Stephanie, Ronnie and now a new comer The Shadow, Lamont have their hands full in this newest attempt stemming back to Adolph Hitler.
Mr Lukeman takes the reader from one end of the globe to the other, taking on the FBI, the CIA, Senators, Judges, and possibly even in the president's cabinet. I remember mentioning in my review of White Jade, the action was so real, the descriptions so clear, I saw it as a movie in my head.
This book did not disappoint either. Not to give any spoilers but for example picture this: the President is giving a speech in the Middle East. He is doing it outside, all eyes are on him. Nick is close by as his bodyguard. The ground explodes from beneath, as a bomb has been implanted in the ruins and tunnels below. The ground gives way becoming a cavernous hole. Nick peers down and slides down to aid the President below wiping the dirt off his unconscious form. From above at the top of the hole, a man with a machine gun is shouting something about ALLAH and is shooting down at the President into the pit, while Nick throws his body over the President and begins firing shots up with the gun he carries ever ready... Helicopters are circling from CNN... Can't you picture this??? Don't you want to read what happens???
Alex, you take your readers on a wild ride. Your sense of humor is great... For example: Lamont is called the Shadow (for folks of my age who listened to Lamont Cranston every Sunday as the Shadow on radio) your sense of timing is wonderful too. Just when I need to catch my breath you let me.
But the message of this book is an important one to me as well. Being of Jewish faith I can only feel fear about Hitler, Himmler and the Third Reich. To think that this hatred had continued to grow and this filth continued to be fed for all these years brought my fear to the forefront. It was an excellent, page turning, heart churning story... Excellent read. Do you think I liked this book? WOW!
I await your 3rd release The Seventh Pillar to see where the gang goes from here.
Review by Gloria Lakritz
Sr Reviewer and Review Chair for the Paranormal Romance
'The Lance' is the spear that pierced Christ's side long believed to hold special powers in the occult. German high commander, Dieter Reinhardt takes the stolen lance in the final days of WWII and transports it to special storage in Anarticia. Reinhardt leaves his son a legacy of knowledge except for the location of the lance. Men who hunger for power build a network of spider into the government waiting for the discovery its discovery.
Nicholas Carter and Elizabeth Harker (his boss) for the Project must protect the president. Each step they take is covered in death before they can learn the truth.
Money, death, brillance, fear, and doubt all play a roll in the romance of Nicholas and Selena, but a few obstacles are moved out of their way. In the spy world there are no guarantees all will ever be smooth sailing.
Fast paced, tight threads, big surprises, and a strong plot keep you reading long after midnight. Before you've reached the last page you are anticipating the next installment in this outstandingly written thriller.
Nash Black, author of SANDPRINTS OF DEATH
In these days of character driven thrillers, few stand out. While often the stories are appealing, the lead characters lack that edge which begs for more books featuring him or her. Happily that is far from the case in The Lance by the wonderful Alex Lukeman. Nick Carter- no relation the famous radio detective of years past!- has been so well "word-painted" by Mr. Lukeman, that his strengths and weaknesses- and there are several as a person- not a character!- are deeply felt and appreciated by the reader. This is not an easy feat - yet a writer as skilled as Alex Lukeman seems to pull it off perfectly.
Thrillers should excite- and THE LANCE certainly succeeds in that- but it also educates and informs- about different cultures and locations- and that is quite a bonus for a book that is already quite a success as a thriller. The information gleamed about the Holy Land is a facinating addition to a must read novel. Very highly recommended for those who love their books exciting yet substantial!
