Reaping the Whirlwind

Dr. St. Clair claims that Mrs. Ida Johnson died from a heart attack, but her broken tea cup and tansy weed on her kitchen table tell another story. The apparently natural deaths of a homeless man, a congenitally disabled child, and others that followed right after her raise questions about what is happening in the town. Trent Tyson, the town’s deputy sheriff, struggles to disclose the cold-blooded murder while maintaining the peace during The State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes. Reaping the Whirlwind by Rosey Dow is a murder mystery rooted in the historical Scopes trial, in which a physics teacher is accused of teaching evolution to his class against the newly enacted law that prohibited the teaching of evolution in high schools.

Author Rosey Dow has done an excellent job of blending the fictional murder mystery with the events of the Scopes trial. The murder mystery is well-written and suspenseful, and it kept me guessing until the end. Unfortunately, there was no link between the murders and no motive strong enough behind them, and it spun my head around as to who could be the murderer.

It shed a lot of light on people’s lifestyles in the twentieth century, and I found it to be very similar to small-town culture today, with some differences. The concise and analytic representation of the trial indicates the painstakingly thorough research that Dow has done. The reaction of the residents and business community is well depicted and demonstrates their efforts to attract tourists and businesses to Dayton. The book’s clean romance between Trent Tyson and Nessa McKenzie is my favorite thing. However, this book could have been more fast-paced, but I enjoyed the introduction of all the characters, from boarding house owner Mrs. McKenzie to town gardener Elmer Bentley.

Reaping the Whirlwind is a captivating historical fiction novel and mystery story. Readers interested in the Scopes Trial of 1925 in Dayton, Tennessee, will enjoy this fictional take on the case of teaching evolution and the historical ramification it had on the US. Education system. Fans of the murder mystery genre will also find it amusing.

Could This Be Real?

D. W. Eamer Author Interview

The Satan Gene follows two people that are searching for the code that will rewrite human DNA before those that want to use it for evil get it first. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

Initially, my story outline was crafted to connect as many conspiracy theories together as I could, coupled with a foundational story behind the New World Order and their ultimate goal of controlling the world. Surprisingly (and scarily enough), I was able to connect many of the conspiracies together into what I would call a master New World Order conspiracy.

The heavy religious overtones came into play along the way as many of the conspiracy theories I studied touched on them directly or indirectly. From there came the idea of basing the story around the Book of Revelation, the Second Coming of Christ, and those who sought to bring it about in order to become supreme rulers.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

The core essence of the book is founded on the mission of exposing the secret plans of those who seek to attain control over humanity whether by consent or conquest. It’s, of course, fiction, but it applies to real world events we are living today.

What research did you do for this novel to get it right?

The research portion of the creation of The SATAN Gene was incredibly exhaustive because I wanted to be as authentic as possible, forcing the reader to ask the question at the end: could this be real? It took a better part of three years to get it all together, and then approximately two years to tie everything up neatly into a linear and coherent story that flowed well. I love doing research, especially anything pertaining to religion, history, and archaeology, so the process was not really labour-intensive for me. In fact, it was probably the most enjoyable part of the process as I touched on countless historical subjects and modern technology. It was definitely a wonderful learning experience. In the end, it allowed me to write the type of novel that I love to read.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I have two more planned that will be Gareth Blackwell adventures! Seeing as the research is quite daunting for both, it may take some time before the next one hits the shelves. At the earliest, I suspect the second one will be published in two years, although I am not a big fan of rushing to produce a book. I firmly believe that each story needs to be high quality, and I don’t think that fast-tracking a story just to capitalize on popularity is the way to go. I want to deliver a polished product. What can the reader expect? More codes, secret societies, diabolical villains, church mysteries, double-crosses, and surprising twists!

The seals of the Scroll of Prophecy are about to be broken, unleashing Satan on Earth.

A modern-day deep state European group with mysterious historical roots dating back before the time of Jesus Christ is urgently bent on implementing a diabolical crime against humanity in order to fulfill a two thousand year old biblical prophecy giving them the power to become the divinely chosen monarchs, ruled by a supreme god-man king on earth.

Tracked by the group’s merciless killer who believes himself to be a direct descendent of the leader of an ancient group of assassins that existed two thousand years ago, quantum biology doctoral student Abriana Stratton and former priest Gareth Blackwell join forces in a perilous race against the clock to find and decipher a trail of codes left by a brutally murdered government scientist.

Within his cryptic texts are the clues to the secret hiding places of the components from a stolen military application that could stop the apocalyptic events of an ancient prophecy.

Or bring them about.

The Dance Towards Death 

The Dance Towards Death, by Tejas Desai, is the third volume of The Brotherhood Chronicle. It narrates the story of some of the survivors in a criminal world. Among them, there’s the former private investigator Niral that is involved in drug affairs, and policeman Nat who’s looking for his son after having abandoned him and trying to understand what’s behind his parents’ death. Even being the third book in the series, it stands alone, and readers are given enough background in the opening chapters to not feel lost in this action-packed conclusion to the series.

Desai writes in a descriptive manner, taking readers to Thailand, India, Chiang Mai, and Queens, New York. Readers will experience the dramatically different cultures and ways of life from the images that Desai creates with his words. While experiencing the diverse cultures of the world, readers are given plot twists and suspense as the characters go through their thrilling adventures seeking to solve their own mysteries that have caused their lives to intertwine.

I really appreciated the insight into different cultures and religions, primarily focusing on different characters and their backgrounds from chapter to chapter. There are different stories that take place in different parts of the world, but they’re all interconnected. The respectful nature that Desai treated the different cultures and religions that he writes about is commendable.

The character’s backgrounds, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islamism, are integrated into the storyline rather than just thrown out as information that may otherwise feel out of place. This is important to show a clash of cultures. We also get to see significant social problems such as racism and homophobia. In addition to that, many Indian, Thai, Australian and American terms are frequently used, making it feel more authentic. Still, readers won’t be lost in translation as at the end of the book, there’s a glossary with all the necessary terms.

This action-filled novel will take some time to experience all the characters’ journeys and follow them on their search for freedom or for relatives. However, in my opinion, the most meaningful point of this novel is the focus on what the characters find along their path, not necessarily what they’re looking for.

The Dance Towards Death is a riveting novel that will have readers in suspense as the characters navigate the thrilling adventures around the world. Readers looking for an authentic experience with different religions and cultures will find this crime thriller the perfect escape.

The SATAN Gene

The Satan Gene is a historical fiction novel by author D. W. Eamer. It combines mystery and thriller elements in which the protagonist of the story, Gareth Blackwell, searches all over Italy for clues and specific USB devices. The information combined within those USB devices is going to wreck the whole world. They contain the coordinates of The SATAN Gene program launch codes. It is a program that modifies the human DNA and can activate certain biological phenomena by sending specific frequencies. The instruction and information for all the processes are contained in those USB drives. The dying professor Ashcroft hands over the clues and one piece of the device to Abriana Stratton, who later meets Gareth Blackwell to commence on this quest of solving the clues and retrieving the complete program.

It is a fast-paced mystery and escapes a thriller with a killer constantly behind them. They are later on joined by the DARPA chief and other officials, but as they begin to unravel the clues, more secrets tumble out.

The writing style of this book is interesting and fact-filled. The author has talked about symbols, motifs, and religious allusions throughout the book. The clues were also based on the symbols and motifs related to religion and several religious sects and cults. The protagonist Gareth Blackwell is well-versed in bringing out the historical and symbolical importance of a particular symbol or action. It is interesting to read about all these symbols while staying on a continuous chase that might destroy the world if gone wrong.

There are a lot of characters who remain in focus throughout the book. The special attention remains on Blackwell, shared by Abriana Stratton for a large part of the book. The DARPA chief also gets his fair share of attention in the plot along with the assassin Sicarius. How the author has interlinked the past information and the story’s parallels are brilliant. The story moves smoothly and is fast-paced while pausing to explain the religious and pagan symbols in great detail. The book reminds me of the writings of Dan Brown, except the intervention of local police or security remains minimal in this book.

The twists and turns in the story keep the readers on edge. The sudden revelations and the chase through Rome and Italy lend an insight into the beauty and religious relevance of the city. The symbols and clues solved by Gareth Blackwell provided deep insight into the overall religious history of Christianity. This book does contain some gruesome details about violence and murders that occur, with no lack of visual details. It might be upsetting to some readers.

The Satan Gene is a riveting novel that fans of thriller and religious mystery will enjoy. The action and adventure of the chase, the mystery of solving the clues, and the thrill of evading the killer will have readers on edge and looking for the next clue.
