Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Hold On! Tomorrow

HOLD ON! TOMORROW (Superheric/SF/Thriller)
By Peter Darley
Price $3.49
378 Pages
Rating 5-Stars

“The Action Never Slows Down.”

Twenty-six years after the death of Brandon Drake, his son B.J. dons the armor of The Interceptor. Brandon had died fighting his inner-self, The Scorpion, but now B.J. is called upon to resurrect Brandon’s good side, The Interceptor when an end-of-the-world cult, the Children of Tomorrow, cause worldwide disasters of apocalyptic horror.

 The first three novels were written in Saturday Matinee cliffhanger style, each story ending with a thrilling cliffhanger (think Commando Cody). But this story is a stand-alone novel. Still, the novel is awash with the old matinee action and sudden danger to our hero and heroine. The suit is equipped with jets in the shoes, lasers in the hands, and robotic strength and speed. B.J. doesn’t have the hang ups that hampered his father’s Dr, Jeckle-Mr. Hyde (Interceptor-Scorpion) situation. Although he feels that his father is within him. This time the world must come together in support of The Interceptor if the planet is to survive, for this time the religious cult has technology on its side, and is as powerful as the world’s mighty superhero.

Call it comic book prose, or pulpy fiction, if you like, but this novel has the making of a good action movie, as well as a graphic novel series. In fact, we are told in the story that movies and comic books resulted from Brandon Drake’s earlier career. Plus we even have a song written for this latest book. And whatever you call the book, you have to admit there is never a slow down in the action. Highly recommended.
