Mr. Blackwell is the next Tom Clancy. The Butterfly Effect is global in scope, brimming with local detail, fast-paced and imbued with a momentum that propels the story and reader forward. Bravo!!! Blackwell

Riveting fast paced thriller
By D. Conrad, September 23, 2013
Having lived in the vicinity of New York during the 9/11 crisis, I have been imagining what's next ever since. But The Butterfly Effect really puts it all together. By mixing facts with fiction, the author has created a story that is totally believable...and a real nightmare. Once I started, I couldn't put it down.
This thriller is riveting from beginning to end. The characters are complex and the story flows through time and across continents effortlessly. I got caught up in all the character's lives - both heroes and villains - all of whom started out so ordinary and were altered by circumstance. From the streets of Kabul to crossing the ocean on a small boat to deliver justice, the author makes you feel like you are right there in the thick of it. I can't wait to read the next one. There's gotta be a next one.

The author is excellent at keeping track of multiple characters/scenarios, in an exciting plot. He's also very good on technical issues, especially on computer development (e.g., the DEC series, a number of which I used long ago), and on nautical terminology and sailing.
Dan Brown meets Tom Clancy

If you like your heroes and heroines tortured and driven, your plots cleverly complex and your weapons described down to the last acronym . . . then you'll love this.
