Ransomed Earth

Les Coalson's new thriller goes international! The unfairness of American politicians to bow to the pressures of special interests and big business at the expense of the environment becomes too much for Professor Alber Greene after Senator Jared Kerr slips language into a bill that deeds environmentally sensitive land to a friend who owns interest in mining companies. Dr. Greene assumes the persona of Ina Maka (Lakota for ‘Mother Earth Spirit’) and convenes a band of guerilla activists on three continents to simultaneously kidnap children of high government officials. Either parents support environmental laws or their children may die. Follow this timely tale as the Vice President attempts to comply with ransom demands in order to save his only child...

Available now on the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, kobo books, Gardner's (UK), eBookPie, Baker and Taylor, and Apple's ibookstore.

AMAZING read! Best thriller I've read in a long time! Author really knows environmental issues and brings them to light in this entertaining book. Once you start reading you cannot put it down. Can't wait for his next novel!

 

5.0 out of 5 stars A thriller that should be made into a movie, October 19, 2012


I found this book to have the action and intensity of a Tom Clancy novel, but with a story that is unique among thrillers.

It has environmental underpinnings, but it is also about US and international politics, crime, corruption, and character development of people. The lead characters are likable, but with flaws and conflicts, and are shown struggling to grow through difficult situations of life and death. It is well researched and detailed in the descriptions of international cultures, complex environmental issues, and geography.

The plot and characters are believable and relevant to our present time, and the dialog makes the characters seem real. The book has a series of story lines that are complex but interwoven in a way that kept me wanting to read on to learn the next twist and turn.

I could see this book becoming a movie as it has a unique story line, thrilling scenes, believable characters, and issues that are relevant today across the globe.

Coalson is able to bring environmental issues to light in a mystery/thriller that keeps you wanting more until the end. You will not be able to put it down. Coalson continues to surprise and entertain us with his third novel.
