5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Tom Clancy, you'll love this. 15 July 2015

like your background facts detailed and precise, your plots fast and furious
and your prose clipped and exciting, then you'll love Alex Blackwell's second
novel in the 'Butterfly Effect' series. Based on the premise that events from
the past have a profound effect on the future, 'The Brotherhood' follows a
driven and embittered survivor of the German battleship 'Bismarck' in his quest
to build a business empire and establish a Teutonic dynasty. Alex Blackwell
uses his detailed knowledge of the sea, his experience of sailing the Atlantic
and his love of Ireland to add depth to the story, which climbs in pace to a
plot to hijack the missiles of a US nuclear attack submarine equal to anything
in a James Bond movie.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sincere, mindful and masterful.

Alex Blackwell is a story teller with respect for the past and intrigue for the future. His writing is sincere, mindful and his masterful plots surprise and leaves one wanting to know what happens next ... after everything, what will happen next, what can happen next? The Brotherhood is our holiday read of choice this year. Three cheers for Alex.
