This book begins with the sudden appearance of a black pyramid in a field in rural Black Hawk County in the Midwest. With no record of this mysterious black tower having ever appeared before, the authorities get ready to explore why the pyramid had suddenly appeared and what is inside. The story continues from this point on and, without wishing to give any of the plot away, it twists and turns quite cleverly and ends with a nice and neat conclusion. It was nice to read a book that had a concise ending, allowing the reader satisfaction in knowing what happened to each character.
What a read! Once I was past the initial first few chapters, I was hooked. The story line kept twisting and turning which made one rather exasperated at times, but the book always made you want to come back for more. I have to state here that there is quite a lot of violence within this book and it doesn't hold back its punches. For example, there is a lot of testosterone flying around at time, but whether this is a strength or a weakness is totally dependent on one's owns preference.
The initial chapters are very fast paced and a lot of colloquial language was used which I found confusing. However it is not long before you understand the mind set of this book and quickly settle into the story line. It is a good book and a really good read. The main characters are mainly all male and the author's skill in describing them gives readers an insight that lasts throughout the book. The author had just as much talent describing the environment as the individual characters. So the book flows nicely, keeping your interest, and you'll be wanting to come back for more. The story line is clever and well thought through. Characters are well rounded and likeable and I would certainly read another of Collette Jackson Fink's books.
