BOOK REVIEW: THE MONGOOSE DECEPTION
Some days you just never know what you might find. That is what happens to Cornelius McPherson.
When an earthquake occurs, Cornelius McPherson finds himself trapped inside the Eisenhower Memorial Tunnel. The irony of it all is that Cornelius is a former highway maintenance man who helped build this tunnel many years ago.
At first, McPherson could not believe that he was still alive. The tunnel was filled with smoke and dust and he could see a jackknifed tractor-trailer. He also noticed what appeared to be a broken tree limb. He decided to pick up the tree limb and take it back with him as a final souvenir. McPherson soon realized it was not a tree limb. It was a frozen, well-preserved human forearm. He also noticed that there was something very recognizable about the forearm. It contained a tattoo that could only belong to one person – Antoine Ducane. The one thing McPherson could not forget is that Ducane told him one night that he knew who killed President John F. Kennedy.
A short time later, McPherson is murdered and sleuth CJ Floyd steps in to sort through the details. He has plenty of projects to sort through including CIA plots, mafia dons and Cuban conspirators. CJ then finds out that there were two previous plots to Kennedy – one in Chicago and one in Tampa.
Is CJ successful?
The Mongoose Deception is an exciting thriller with a different twist on the conspiracy theory of who killed Kennedy. There are several colorful characters to entertain the reader and the action is non-stop. This novel gives the reader an idea as to what was going on in 1963 with several different organizations. The book opens with the present time and then goes back to November 1963. It then takes up with the entrance of CJ Floyd. Be sure to add The Mongoose Deception to your reading list. I highly recommend it.
