A Diabolical Plot – Clandestine Meetings – Political Corruption – International Intrigue and Realism in the genre of Fiction
Repercussions were felt around the world within hours of the news flash of a nuclear explosion at the American Civil Liberties Union holiday fundraiser in San Francisco, California. An estimated 500 or more ACLU leaders, supporters, and innocent bystanders were killed in the blast.
Members of ACLU Headquarters top executives in New York City, and Staff members of the ACLU office Washington DC are in a state of shock. Pope Benedict in the Vatican sets plans in motion to discredit rumors of scandal among the hierarchy of the Catholic Church.
The President of the United States feels the pressure of an ongoing barrage from the news media; pressing for an immediate update on what government agencies have uncovered, competing for headlines, generating a tirade of hatred through groundless insinuations, under the guise of the public’s right to know the facts.
As United States Attorney General, Tom Owens is in charge of the investigation. Owens calls on a personal friend, Blake Elliot, a brilliant and successful former attorney, to review the evidence. Chapter by chapter the international intrigue thickens as a sinister complex plot become more far reaching.
Dolezal understands the important building blocks of a good story. He delivers a well-crafted, fast moving, action packed plot, filled with diabolical conspiracy, and hair raising suspense. I found myself reading into the wee hours of the morning, a definite page turner. Richard has created a master piece of political corruption, diabolical evil deception, and fictional realism.
Author Richard T. Dolezal skillfully weaves into his story insights from his experience working in the Department of Justice as an Assistant United States Attorney. Dolezal’s “The Fourth Vow” is destined to attract fans from the political, legal, and suspense genre of adventure thrillers. I am looking forward to more from Richard Dolezal
