4.0 out of 5 stars The Brotherhood have achieved power and influence ever since the Second World War: now they plan a dramatic and terrible event.. 1 Sept. 2015

By darkenwolf - Published on Amazon.co.uk

Format:Kindle Edition

The Brotherhood is a broad scope thriller, which manages to weave together fast-moving vivid action into a time canvas that spreads from the Second World War to the present moment (or just beyond...).
The subtitle, Acquisition of Power, refers to a will and a vision that grew in certain powerful men of business, Nazi ideologues, to place people and acquire businesses over a period of decades, in order to exercise control and influence.
This is the second novel by Alex Blackwell, and continues the reader's relationship with key characters. Anyone who has read his first book - The Butterfly Effect - will know the quality of tender poignancy that he brings to the love between people, and how they deal with the vicissitudes of life. Such a reader will also look forward to being at sea; one cannot doubt that Alex Blackwell is an experienced sailor, indeed he is a captain, and the authenticity of his experience enriches the reader.
It is an exciting read, an interesting read, a heart-warming read...... And it ends too soon.
Don't miss it!


5.0 out of 5 stars Race for supremacy 12 Aug. 2015

By Roland Evans - Published on Amazon.com

Format:Kindle Edition

I wanted a summer read that would be fast, easy to read and with a sense of place whilst on holiday. I was not disappointed. Johan Beyer full of bitterness after his war time experiences vows to topple the USA as world power through the formation of the brotherhood. He is partnered for a while in this ambition by his son Wolfgang. They part company on methods however. Wolfgang assembles his team. by sea and by land evoking a wonderful sense of place as Argentina, the Caribbean and New York are vividly described.
Unbeknownst to the plotters, young Peter Blessingham a computer expert and student living in Dublin had hacked into the NASA computer system and the first faint clues of the plot are revealed. Peter is tracked by the American security forces represented by an old family friend Jack O' D anand agrees to co-operate.
The chase is on as a team is assembled by Wolfgang Bayer to topple the USA and another team is assigned to prevent it. The description and use of technology is impressive and the sense of timing finely tuned throughout. Take this book to a quiet spot and read in one sitting.


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

By John Joyce - Published on Amazon.com


If you 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.

Readers may have a challenge in the early part of the book as the story jumps between the past and the present but, as the momentum of the plot takes hold, they'll find it worth the effort. An incredible blend of ultra-detailed fact and creative fiction.


5.0 out of 5 stars Sincere, mindful and masterful.

ByAlly Bunburyon August 22, 2015 - Published on Amazon.com

Format: Paperback

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.
