Rich Man’s War, Poor Man’s Blood by Mark Cusco Ailes is a thriller of epic proportions. America has gone wrong, very wrong. A total of 47% of Americans is unemployed, the papers are full of nothing but propaganda, and crime is on the rise. Stacy Anderson is a designer of military defense systems and drones. Her gut is telling her that something is not right. Why are people being secretly implanted with microchips? Has she given the military the power they need to destroy us? Her boyfriend is Lt. Benjamin Fox and when she calls to talk to him, all hell breaks loose. Stacy is on the run with a stranger, but can she really trust him? Lt Fox wants her back and he enlists the help of Stephanie and Bill. Trouble is, he doesn’t have a clue just how deep this evil streak runs, but he has to follow it to find the truth and save his girl – and America. Could this be the beginning of the end?

Rich Man’s War, Poor Man’s Blood by Mark Cusco Ailes is a thrilling read. It is scary in a way because we all know, deep down, that governments and some military departments do mess with nature and do try to control what is going on. This story just compounds the fact that we really only know what they want us to know. I was hooked from the start, drawn into a deeply written mystery. The plot was excellent with plenty of action with lots of twists and turns in it. The characters were developed throughout the story, giving me a chance to get to know them properly, and the whole story pulled together tightly. There were no loose ends left untied, no turn that led nowhere, and everything drew to a natural and well written conclusion. Excellent story, I'm looking forward to reading more from Mr. Ailes.
