The Land Lord by Cheryl Colwell (Political Suspense)

My thoughts:  This is my first occasion to read Cheryl Colwell's work. She writes an interesting story and weaves suspense and intrigue that is mind-consuming and perplexing.

Firstly, using names of Chinese individuals past and present made the read a bit difficult for me to follow. My problem, I am sure, since I'm not familiar with these names. Also, it seems some of the characters actually have two different names which further complicated my ability to follow the thread of who is doing what and where.

This is a multi-layered story involving political scenarios past and present, scientific achievement both past and present, complications within a specific political ideology, etc.

Basically, it is a conflict between two superpowers - The United States of America and China. But not actually governmental - more underlying currents of political ideas and movements.

The "Land Lord" concept is quite interesting and the revelation at the end of "The Land Lord" is intriguing. Land and the possession of it is complex across the globe and this book brings this to the reader in an intriguing and somewhat baffling way.

The book is published by Inspired Fiction Books which I assume is self-publishing for Ms. Colwell. Well published though it did contain a few editorial missteps. I will most likely read future books by this author if given the opportunity for another interesting political read.

About the book:  Land lords: China’s most threatening export yet. Incensed at the economic takeover, America’s ethnic populations are killing each other. Bombs are blowing up buildings, buses and businesses. The President knows someone in his White House is manipulating the hatred. But who?

He recruits Secret Service agent Dain Ryder, who served under him in the Marines, and Lian Chen, the mysterious woman from the People’s Republic of China, to join a covert team in a race against his enemies to find the answers. The winner will determine the fate of the President, and the fate of his nation.
