BEACON NEWSPAPERS REVIEW:
The fast paced page-turner Daingerfield Island is a spy thriller with all the elements of that genre. It’s a riveting read replete with dead bodies, shootings — fatal and otherwise, a terrorist plot, car chases and pileups, disgruntled exes, coverups, courtroom drama, police and investigatory double dealings and a denouement at the airport with authorities in pursuit of a fleeing suspect. The plot picks up steam as the mystery deepens and the characters are fleshed out as the story unfolds. John Wasowicz, a resident of Fairfax County, Virginia, uses his familiarity with the local geography to great effect in his storytelling. His more than three decades as a practicing attorney lend credence to the plot lines.
Personal grudges, betrayals, ruthlessness and hypocrisy are described with great panache and, given the nature of recent headlines, these duplicitous dealings don’t seem that far-fetched. The villains are more than overshadowed by the good guys and gals, some of whom reach the end of the book vindicated but, alas, others lose their lives along the way. You’ll have trouble putting this book down between chapters, so plan on reading it in one sitting. Time will fly by as you follow the twists and turns of the ingenious tale.
