Red Talon—the second book in the Dax Hunter Series—sees our hero thrust into the eye of a global storm.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
With a nod at the author’s obvious talent, noted British historian Ricky D Phillips says Gary Albyn is “fast establishing himself as master and commander of his genre.”
High plaudits indeed.
With Berlin in ruins and the Allies about to overrun the city, Hitler’s Head of Gestapo engineers his timely escape. In British-controlled Palestine, a Zionist guerrilla is hanged for attempted murder and sabotage. Thirty-five years later, Argentina invades the Falklands Islands.
As the author knits together a series of seemingly unconnected world events, the reader quickly understands the source of Phillips’ praise.
Teaming-up with CIA agent Apple Lacroix, Zimbabwean pilot Dax Hunter finds himself in a race against time to stop the calculating ambitions of KGB prodigy, Vladimir Putilin.
When asked what genre his books fit into, Albyn says it would be imprecise to categorize the Dax Hunter Series as being historical fiction. “A more appropriate genre would be faction: a portmanteau of the words fact and fiction,” he added.
Spanning several decades and several continents, this skillfully-crafted plot launches the reader into a roller-coaster ride of murder, intrigue, betrayal and shadowy Cold War dealings.
Gary Albyn sizzles with his latest offering. In the hands of a skilled director, this book surely has the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster.
