Sinossi

A gritty lawyer uncovers an ancient conspiracy and the betrayal of a man and a nation. A thriller mystery of treachery, trust and redemption.
. . .
Every instinct I had told me to get out but I couldn’t, not now. This simple case would trigger repercussions that would unnerve the city, maybe the country. I was about to open doors that had been nailed shut for a lifetime. And the only path to the truth was through a labyrinth of deceit. I trusted no one, not even myself. My stomach tightened.

The ten years had slipped by like a century. I never thought I’d see New York again and now I find myself buried in its bowels, unsure of what I was after—but I knew I had to find it. I snaked through the city bureaucracy, historical landmarks and some of the most prominent properties in the city, all intricately linked. Nothing fit, yet everything connected and answers only bred more questions. Somehow it had all been mysteriously tied back to me.

I ventured into the darkest tunnel of all, my own. I realized then why I was chosen—why I had been the only one that could find this elusive document. Deep within a maze of deceptions and betrayals, I uncovered a massive conspiracy among the most esteemed organizations in the world—and the truth that had sent my life into a tailspin ten years ago was far from true. Suddenly, this seemingly routine assignment suddenly had enormous stakes and consequences. Now it was up to me to mend an ancient injustice and the fate of an entire culture.

4.0 su 5 stelle Great First Novel!! 9 settembre 2013
Di Doree J. Gerold - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book was written by someone who was my boss in corporate America many years ago. He is also the person who taught me how to write good/clear/concise documents, meeting minutes, memos, you name it. Ritch is (and has been since I met him in 1968) a very creative person - painting, photography and more. I do not think knowing the author biased me but it did cause me to be fascinated with his writing and to finish the book where I might otherwise have not. I am very glad I persevered..

I was amazed at how good this book was for a first foray into fiction. It was an interesting story and generally well told. I thought the second half was much better written than the first. Some of the writing and metaphors in the first 1/2 seemed pretentious. It was as if he had conceived a great line and was using it whether it fit or not. The writing in the second 1/2 - especially the dialogue - seemed totally natural.

My biggest negative was that I hate it when an author has his character acquiring lots of info but that info its not shared with the reader until way down the road. I think this is something the author could address in his next book. I do not think the twists and turns of the plot would be hurt by being more forthcoming with plot info earlier on.

His protagonist, Rick, was not a character I could really relate to. But the way the book ended had me thirsting for another in the series.

Great job, Ritch. Give us more soon.

5.0 su 5 stelle Lots of surprises 21 giugno 2013
Di RStaymates - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Rick Wallace awakens at his desk in his Tecumseh law office with the ever present bottle of tequila at his elbow and the taste of too much alcohol in his mouth. This time, he is not alone. Two men have come to his office to make him an offer, an offer that will save his business. But, may very well cost him his life.

Twenty five thousand dollars to track down a document. Instructions to follow.

How hard can it be? Get to New York, get the document, get back out. Easy money, and certainly something he can handle, even if he did promise himself that he would NEVER go back to New York again. EVER.

With every step that Rick takes to find this elusive document, he discovers more about himself, and about a past that he thought he had buried deeply in the bottom of a bottle. And the closer he comes to uncovering the truth about the document he is seeking, the closer he comes to losing his life, until it finally becomes an all out battle for his life, and his sanity.

This is a hard-boiled style thriller that has something for everyone. A very enjoyable read.

5.0 su 5 stelle A mystery thriller with a historical twist 18 giugno 2013
Di Brian - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Written in a first person, almost hard-boiled detective style, The Big Empty delivers on both the mystery and the thriller front. It's a very good novel that touches on a post 9/11 conspiracy (more interesting and well-drawn than most you'll find), which has reaches back into Native American history.

Wallace, a lawyer who has forgotten his past, and finds he has a part in a situation which he is investigating, must figure out if he is uncovering a conspiracy or playing a part in one. And the plot lets itself get discovered slowly which makes the reading all the more worthwhile.

"The Big Empty" scores on all points - it's worth more than a buck for the Kindle version, and the paperback would be worthy of a place on the shelf. The writing is clear and free of troubling syntax errors, and the characters are believable.

5.0 su 5 stelle A great suspense story with history sprinkled in 30 maggio 2013

The main character Rick kept me completely engaged throughout the entire book. I kept wanting to read more about his past relationships and couldnt believe how Gaiti tied the whole story together. Gaiti did a great job mixing historical facts about New York and the Native American culture with current day. I highly recommend this book.

I can't get enough of a good conspiracy book!

The Big Empty Delivers! Just when you think you have figured it out, you find yourself slowly cranked up for a series of roller-coaster rides. It's a great journey through the anatomy of power which truly shapes and dominates the greatest city in the world.
