Book Review- Allan Folsom- The Hadrian Memorandum

Allan Folsom- The Hadrian Memorandum (Tor Books 2010) 4.5 Stars

Sent to a small African country in the midst of rebellion and massacres, Nicholas Marten must meet with a priest who has photos that could anger some very rich and prominent people. He has been sent in secretly by the President of the United States, John Henry Harris. The president wants to know what is going on there, and wants the killing stopped, but the people behind it don’t want the photos found and will stop at nothing to see that they end up on top.

This book took a little more to get into, but was quite fast-paced in many parts, including the whole last half. The introduction gets the reader right into the middle of things and makes the reader curious about what is going to happen. The plot was really good; action packed and full of twists and turns. It was kind of predictable at parts, but not so much so that you weren’t surprised at least in part. The characters once again were good, fairly strong with some background information included. The setting was interesting as it was always changing as they raced around the globe, running for their lives. I look forward to seeing what else this author will come up with in the future.
