Praise and Reviews

~~A summary can in no way prepare the reader for the tension that builds inexorably in this tense thriller. Yes, there is time for some light moments and some romantic moments, but the story, once started drives itself to a fascinating denouement. Ulma Kellerman may be an unfamiliar name at present, but should she follow her bliss we will be hearing much more about her. Grady Harp, August 14

 

~~As an expat from South Africa, I could not put down this contemporary thriller set in the land of my birth which I know so well. The author, also a native of South Africa, is uniquely placed to write about her homeland, its people, their customs and the distinctive English spoken there.

This exciting tale was at the same time a nostalgic trip 'back home' for me. However, the plot holds a great deal more than mere nostalgia - and I am sure will enthral readers of all nationalities with its intrigue, suspense and very believable and likeable characters, realistic South African dialogue and the well-researched contemporary medical and political issues involved.

The events that Tyler, Madeline, their friends and families experience are very real and probable in the current political and global climate of corruption and the search for wealth at all costs. Madeline, a dedicated medical researcher, is a counterbalance to the evil, proving that there is indeed hope for humanity and some people who care.

Without revealing too much about the plot, I urge all lovers of contemporary thrillers to read "Covert Ops". If you are like me, the characters will live in your memory long after reading the last page. You will also learn something about life in present-day South Africa, as well as enjoy an exciting visit to the Czech Republic and Russia.

I eagerly await the sequel of "Covert Ops" to learn what transpires in the lives of these very real people - PEARL HARRIS AUG 2014
