Three Weeks in Winter by Joseph LeValley is a masterpiece of suspense, thriller, action, mystery, and heroism. The safety of America is threatened by the activities of a white supremacist group, POVO, led by a Russian spy who aims to wreak destruction on the United States. One man's determination to uncover the truth about the death of an acquaintance leads him into the world of terrorists, undercover agents, and subterfuge. His brilliance, resoluteness, and heroics in the face of danger ensure that the terrorists' plans are foiled, saving the lives of Americans. It is a tale of electrifying suspense and action. What do you do when the fate of your country hangs in the balance? To find out how Tony Harrington, a newspaper reporter in Orney, Iowa, saves the United States from a homegrown terrorist attack sponsored by foreign powers, then this book is a must-read for you.
I was captivated by the brilliant plot. The author's skill in crafting a suspense-filled action thriller is truly commendable. The narrative provides a full dose of entertainment while conveying the passion and patriotism that Tony had for his country. Despite not being a trained agent or part of any security agency, he took the security of his nation personally and remained committed every step of the way. The story beautifully captures the struggles of African Americans living in America, the sacrifices of security personnel ensuring national safety, the unity of a small-town community during a crisis, and the rapid response to security threats by the military and other agencies.
My favorite character is obviously the hero of the story, Tony Harrington. He demonstrated the inquisitiveness a good reporter should have, and his eagerness to solve the mystery of Deputy Sheriff Tim's murder is commendable. His persistence in seeking the truth, despite several attempts on his life and numerous near-death scrapes, is astounding. Darcy's commitment to her partner is noteworthy. Instead of watching from the sidelines while he risked his life, she chose to follow him and, on two different occasions, saved his life while putting herself in danger. Their love and commitment to each other are truly amazing.
There was nothing I disliked about the book, as it was brilliantly written. I enjoyed the suspense, action, the race against time, mystery, and the triumph of good agents over evil. The twist at the end involving Tony's sister is intriguing and makes for an entertaining read. The editing was done brilliantly, and the book was free of any typographical errors.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars for its ability to captivate readers and make it a real page-turner. I recommend this book to all lovers of action thrillers and anyone looking for a compelling story of an American hero.
