The Evil That Men Do
Robert Gleason paints a dark and grim portrait of a world where greedy corporations rule. In his new thriller, The Evil That Men Do, the world as we know it is coming to an end. Vast income inequalities and corporate greed rule. The oligarchs are seizing power from democratically-elected governments. J.T. Tower, the President of the United States, Mikhail Putilov, President of Russia, and Wahid al-Waheed, the Saudi Ambassador to the US, have all colluded and have designs to rule over the world. Meanwhile, the people have had enough. They are tired of the vast corruption and greed and begin to rise up and pressure the UN to do something. However, Tower, Putilov, and al-Waheed will not go easy. They hatch a diabolical plan to detonate nuclear weapons in the United Nations. Only three people are brave enough to stop this conspiracy: Jules Meredith, an investigative journalist, ex-CIA agent Elena Moreno, and ex-Special Forces operative John C. Jameson. They must work together as a team to stop the oligarchy and prevent a nuclear holocaust.
Robert Gleason is a master of his craft. An expert on nuclear terrorism, he brings quite a believable scenario. His writing is taut, with lots of action, and it leaves the reader guessing until the very last page. Character development is also a very strong suit of the book. Both heroes and villains are extremely smart and cunning, with the only difference being the way they use their wits. Gleason’s book is especially relevant in today’s state of the world.
I enjoyed reading The Evil That Men Do and would definitely recommend it.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
