We will have an Excerpt and Review later but first, let's meet the Author! 


A. F. Ebbers, a journalism graduate of Ohio University was a reporter/writer for major newspapers, ad agencies, and in public relations for Cessna Aircraft Company.  He also graduated from Army Flight School and flew for the Ohio and Kansas Army National Guards. Later he was called to active duty and served two flying tours in Vietnam. After retirement from the military, he flew for corporations and for regional airlines. A dual rated ATP pilot, he has written for numerous national magazines, Sunday supplements and trade and travel magazines and has written screenplays and short stories. Today he lives with his wife in the Austin, Texas area and, when not writing, enjoys tennis, flying and piano. Dangerous Past is his debut novel.
About writing.  I write realistically about what I have experienced.  Most of the places in this novel are real because I’ve been there: from Vietnam to Europe to Asia to Washington to Texas and most places in-between.  I create characters using a combination of real and imaginary personalities.  My motto for writing fiction is always write what you know.

Synopsis: 
Airline Captain Frank Braden and his wife Nicole are suddenly stalked by professional assassins who have a deadline to make their deaths look like an accident or a suicide. And the couple doesn't know why they are being targeted. They don't realize that they stand in the way of a deadly conspiracy. Little by little they are pulled into a dangerous web of intrigue by a murderous criminal network that deceptvely offers the pilot his wife's life if he will concede to their demands. This is a thriller that rocks the highest levels of Washington.\








My Rating:


My Review:
Be prepared to be on the edge of your seat from the start with this book! It definitely starts out with a bang. 

The best part about Suspense novels is trying to figure everything out with the characters as they go along, and I was definitely engaged in the events of the story! 

If you know anything about the Vietnam war, you will be very impressed with the way Ebbers includes a variety of events and details in this story. The added historical element fit perfectly. 

There were parts of the story that were a bit slower and I wanted information a bit faster than I got it at times, but overall a great Suspense novel!

EXCERPT

Airline Captain Frank Braden is being stalked in his hometown of Austin, Texas, by professional assassins who must arrange his death to look like a suicide or an accident before a specific deadline. Braden's surgeon wife, Nicole, saves his life twice from ground assailants. Both of them don't why people are trying to kill him.

Later, he receives an unsigned message warning him not to attend a forthcoming Senate hearing in Washington. If he agreeds he will receive a million dollars and his wife's life. When Braden turns to the FBI and local police for help, they doubt his stories since they have been led to believe he is schizophrenic and suicidal, exactly what his assailants want the authorities to think.

DANGEROUS PAST is a story of a man who must choose between doing what ought to be done or keeping his family alive by allowing a murderous and powerful VIP to escape his past.
