The Alarmists: A Book Review

About The Book:

This is the Way the World Ends...

Sociologist Brent Michaels' specialty is seeing order in the chaos of human interaction and he's just been given the most important assignment of his life. Joining a special Pentagon unit headed by Colonel Jameson Richards, they have one goal: Uncover why the world is rushing toward doomsday.

It's December 2012 and the world is approaching the brink of panic--the timing of which eerily coincides with the ending of the Mayan calendar. But, beneath the despair of fanatics and doomsayers, and amid a rising tide of both man-made and natural disasters, something far more dangerous emerges--someone is manipulating events, pulling strings, and only Michaels and the team have a chance at stopping the end of the world.

About The Author:

Don Hoesel is a Web site designer for a Medicare carrier in Nashville, TN. He has a BA in Mass Communication from Taylor University and has published short fiction in Relief Journal. He lives in Spring Hill, Tennessee, with his wife and two children.The Alarmists is his third novel.

My Review:

The Alarmist is the first novel by Don Hoesel I have had the opportunity to read, and it was a pleasure. From the opening scenes of chapter one to the very last page, suspense is all throughout this book. Within a well written novel and fast paced novel, you will find conspiracy theories abounding, mysteries to solve, well developed characters and the relationship between science and Christianity is explored in a lot of detail. It is very evident that the author did a lot of research for this novel and thus succeeded in putting together a great read.

A great read for this upcoming beach and holiday season that I highly recommend.

BUY IT: You can purchase The Alarmist by Don Hoesel at your local bookseller of Bethany House Books
