A week after uncovering the secret of what really happened at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, history professor Matt Conroy was lying in a morgue with the back of his head blown off.
SFPD homicide inspector Tom McGuire, a long-time friend of Conroy’s, volunteers to assist the FBI in hunting down the killer. The FBI, however, is ordered to stand down for “national security” reasons.
They all thought that would be the end of it. They were wrong.
Tom McGuire refuses to stand down. Not for the FBI, not for the Pentagon, not for anyone. That decision puts him in the crosshairs of one of the world’s most secret and dangerous organizations – an organization whose rich and powerful members will stop at nothing to make sure their 142-year-old secret remains hidden.
Drawn into a labyrinth of conspiracies over a century old, Tom McGuire has just walked into his worst nightmare.
Review: I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading The Custer Conspiracy. I was quite taken by surprise. This is a modern day mystery murder full of action with some startling twists and turns. What I liked most about the story is, just when I thought I had it all worked out and was waiting smugly for confirmation, thinking it’s all a bit too predictable, Koller turns it in a new direction… I love that!
The book is a very easy, relaxing read, and very well-written. You can also tell that he’s done his homework when it comes to power rifles, snipers, and ammo. Lots of specs are covered and explained during conversations between characters which is an excellent way to cover it rather than being ‘told’.
I give it five-stars for well-written albeit, simple prose with high entertainment value. I could honestly see this story as an action movie.
