An obscenely wealthy businessman, who has a strange relationship with his adult daughter, is running for President of the United States and intelligence agencies fear that he may be a Soviet puppet. Sound familiar? No, these aren't the Trumps. But in 1971, author Tom Ardies saw the future in a wild, political spy novel that has now become the perfect thriller for our time.
A conman in Mexico gets ensnared by a sexy model in a scheme to uncover an ancient, anti-aging potion hidden in the Mountains.
Tom Ardies is the nearest thing to Ian Fleming and Mickey Spillane that we have...Pandemic is tautly written, adequately complicated.
An ingenious plot and non-stop suspense in a novel of the all-too-near future.
Pandemic is great. The suspense builds so fast, that this is a novel to be read in one sitting. The macabre situation in which Sparrow gets entwined is so chilling that it can send shivers the spine of a reader on a sunny afternoon. Ardies has written a thriller that manages to be exciting, funny and sexy, all at the same time.
