Présentation de l'éditeur

It's a thriller right out of today's headlines, though it took place in the early nineties.

The theft of Soviet nerve gas weapons as the Cold War ends and the fate of a Special Operations helicopter mission to Iran set the stage for a thrill ride across continents as international chicanery gone wild seeks to restore dictatorial rule in the former Soviet republics. Can a disgraced Air Force colonel, a Belarus investigator framed for murder, and a spymaster suddenly left in the cold stop a disaster that will paralyze Washington?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Writer in the mold of Tom Clancy - Maybe even better! 29 avril 2014
Par Charles A. Ray - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Overture to Disaster by Chester D. Campbell is a post-Cold War political thriller that, in light of current events in Ukraine and other parts of the former Soviet Union, reads as if it could have been taken from the headlines or the lead story on CNN. I received a free copy for review, and found myself immersed in a story that rivals the best Tom Clancy novel.
This novel has everything – rogue former KGB agents who are determined to bring the U.S. to its knees through the use of stolen nerve gas with the help of the Peruvian terrorist group, Shining Path; senior U.S. officials who put profit and position before honor; and a few daring individuals, Russian and American, who are willing to put their lives on the lines to preserve peace and order.
Campbell’s knowledge of weaponry, tactics, and bureaucratic and political doings is first-rate, and he weaves it all together with characters that, while true to life, seem larger than life. The suspense is drum-tight, and the odds are astronomical, as a wrongly cashiered Air Force special operations pilot and a dedicated Russian criminal investigator race against time to prevent what could tip the world into a catastrophic confrontation with no winners.
Don’t even think about reading this book unless you have several hours to devote to it, because once you start reading, it’ll suck you into a world of betrayal and intrigue, and not let you go until the end.
I reserve five-star reviews for only the best of books, but if I could, I’d give Overture to Disaster six. Don’t let this one pass you by.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good read 10 juillet 2014
Par Terry L. Shoptaugh - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Having enjoyed success with his Sid Chance mysteries, and his series of Greg McKenzie novels, Campbell has in his last three books turned to the Cold War era. This book concludes a trilogy of thrillers in which Burke Hill, a former CIA agent, confronts crimes that cross international boundaries and endanger Americans. In this concluding piece of the trilogy, a Russian officer who wishes to reverse the collapse of the Soviet Union steals nerve gas and plans to use it in an attack on U.S. soil. Fans of Campbell's procedural-thrillers will enjoy the detailed unfolding of the plot, a step-by-step trail that leads from eastern Europe through South America and on to the story's climax at the nation's capital. Will the Russian renegade’s plot succeed in killing hundreds? Or will Burke and his compatriots save the day? Campbell’s fans will enjoy finding out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of Those "Can't Put it Down" Kind of Books 15 mai 2014
Par DJD - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
This is right up there with the best authors of spy & adventure novels (Tom Clancy, Joel Rosenberg, Daniel Silva....). I love these kind of books and this surpassed my expectations as I had never read this author. He is descriptive, draws you into the characters and keeps you from what you need to be doing because you keep reading wondering what happens next. I did receive this book as a freebie and to review it, but it did not disappoint me. I give it 5 stars and would like to read more by this author. I would have bought the book just from the description. Definitely worth it!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Toward the end it was almost a chore to read it was so implausible 30 juillet 2014

As political and spy type thrillers go, this had a lot going for it early on. A very believable story line starts out with Soviet era big wigs who do not like the new order plotting to return things to the way it was. Part of their plan involves stealing chemical and nerve agents from the Russian Army.

The first part of the book read quite well, but as it went on it got more and more implausible.

Toward the end it was almost a chore to read it was so implausible.

I like conspiracy thrillers, but I have to believe that at least at some level it is possible, even if it really can't be. This one started out quite good but just plain lost me along the way.

Two scapegoats on either side of the Atlantic team up to beat the odds and save Innocent humans from a horrible act of terror while seeking redemption for themselves. There is appreciable irony in that the paranoia of the Cold War survives into the post Cold War era. Nothing really changes for those coming of age and gaining wisdom during this time period except that the victims of the blame game and the doublecross become younger.
The author could use more memorable surnames to keep the reader apprised of the action, a la John le Carre, who most of the time picks outstanding names for his characters. Also, the novel would gain depth if there were greater use of spycraft techniques such as agent exchanges and "retraining" instead of blunt extermination.
Am all admiration for the author's experience and sympathy for the underdog, in spite of advanced years!
