‘An Imposition” Okay for a first try….


impositionFrom the Back Cover:  “An Imposition is the first in a series of books based on events at the Department of Energy’s top-secret Monroe nuclear weapons laboratory during the boom years of the Reagan Administration.”

“An Imposition” is about spies, murder, cover-ups–all during the nuclear weapons mindset of the 1980s.  Finding a mole and a murderer in a nuclear weapons facility is nearly impossible.  It is a unique environment with extenuating circumstances that make retrieving evidence impossible.

The plot is unique.  The characters, though not particularly likable, are believable under the circumstances.  The author didn’t complete the story so there will be at least one more book.  With the exception of some obscene language (used at least twice), the book is not too bad for the author’s first try.  I think he could have been more concise and added more humor–one scene in particular stands out as humorous which added an interesting element to an otherwise tense story and I wish there had been more.  I would have also liked for the author to have left out the offensive language, but that was his prerogative.  It seemed that since it was sparingly used anyway it could have been left out altogether.
