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

Crimson is a mind-bending action-packed science fiction novel filled with past, present, and future, historical conspiracies. This second novel in the Trinity Series is a deep rich crimson soaked story with a plot that twists and turns page after page. Technologically driven, this story is one 'hell' of a ride and contains the mother of all retrofits.

Petra is back in the second Trinity novel, this time she’s pitted against the Crimson Alliance, a group believed controlled by a Chinese Shadow organization. There is a lot happening in this one. First, the Guidestones in Georgia attract planes like a magnet, causing a great catastrophe with many dead and injured. Evidence leads Petra to Hawaii where she finds Dreama, the daughter of Ray Nelson. She is bringing her back to the mainland when she crashes in front of another cataclysm wiping half of California off the map, and making Nevada the new seacoast. Now duplicates of Petra are striking, killing anyone in their path and causing destruction across America. The president, with Ray Nelson’s help, device a military strike against North Korea and China.

This was another fun romp by the author of COBALT, a science fiction action yarn with humor and plenty of action. You don’t have to believe it, just go along for the ride. The author is enjoying himself, and you should too. I would be amiss if I didn’t say something about Captain Petra Kayden Dace’s aircraft – yes, she was promoted to captain at the end of the last novel. Also in that novel she acquired 8 drones she named after patriotic men: George, Joan Paul, Patrick, Benjamin, Thomas, Than, James, etc. They can morph into anything, in this case a P35B jet plane. I also called Petra the future Captain America last time, but in this novel she reminded me more of Wonder Woman and her invisible plane. One more comment I feel that I have to make; these books are being sold at cost, not for profit. If readers are looking for their money’s worth, plus a darn good read, these books are for you. Highly recommended.
