Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
When a person is on the road to self-destruction, an inability to remember the past does not help matters. Eric Caine, War on Terror veteran, is striving to get back control of his life following a traumatic car accident, but just when he thinks he can start anew, Eric finds himself pursued by CIA assassins in Henry Mosqueraâ€™s new thriller â€œSleeperâ€™s Runâ€ (ISBN 9780615505442, Oddity Media, LLC, 2011).
Eric Caine, War on Terror veteran, finds himself wandering the streets of Miami after a car accident that leaves him robbed of his memories. Alone and suffering from PTSD, Eric is on a one-way road to self-destruction until a chance meeting in a bar presents an opportunity for him to begin anew. That opportunity is a new job that relocates him to his homeland of Venezuela. At first, things go well with his new job, but soon his life takes an ominous turn when a catastrophic event threatens the countryâ€™s stability. Now Eric must escape an elite team of CIA assassins as he tries to uncover an international conspiracy in which nothing is what it seems.
Henry Mosquera has created a non-stop action thriller filled with layer after layer of conflict that keeps the book moving at breakneck speed; along the way, readers will enjoy plenty of romance, deception, intrigue, fascinating characters, and numerous international thrills. As a native of Venezuela, Mosquera does not settle for typical Latin American stereotypes but â€œgets it rightâ€ in terms of depicting his homeland. â€œSleeperâ€™s Runâ€ represents the international crime thriller at its finest.
In a recent interview with Reader Views, Mosquera described his desire to create a believable main character and story. â€œThe [thriller] genre is dominated by national, ethnic-centric protagonists who have limited worldviews. These characters are usually proficient killing machines that we might fantasize about, but with whom we really canâ€™t relate. I wanted Eric to be fallible, to have a sense of humor, to experience awkwardness, fears and confusion just like the rest of us. I wanted a guy who watched the same movies or listened to the same music that readers have watched or heardâ€¦.More importantly, I wanted to show a world that is a little more complex; where there are no easy answers, cozy resolutions or well-defined sides. In short, it is a world closer to the one we live in.â€
Reviewers are raving about â€œSleeperâ€™s Run.â€ Kirkus Reviews proclaims, â€œMosquera weaves a tale of suspense through a clandestine world, crafting an engaging read thatâ€™s not easily put down.â€ A Goodreadsâ€™ reviewer declares, â€œnon-stop action from page one to the very last page.â€ And Richard R. Blake of Reader Views, still trying to catch his breath, exclaims, â€œthe rapid pace of the action was so intense I had to take breathers; however, I found myself quickly drawn back into the mêlée. If you like super-heroes, non-stop action, and intrigue and suspense, you are destined to become a fan of Henry Mosquera.â€
