Book Review: The Tangled Web - an international web of intrigue, murder and romance by J.P. Lane
|4 stars, 1 review|
J.P. Laneabout this book: The Tangled Web is an international thriller that takes you on a ride from one side of the Atlantic to the other and lands you on a Caribbean island where danger lurks behind the postcard facade. It's the story of four patriots who take extraordinary measures to rescue their country from the clutches of a powerful international drug trafficking organization. It's also about a man and woman caught in a web of political intrigue that threatens the survival of their love. I use images of Jamaica where I was born and raised to describe the island in the book, but this story of love, assassination and political intrigue could be about any Caribbean or Latin American country touched by the far-reaching tentacles of the narcotics industry. The characters are fictitious and so is the plot, but there are true incidents and real people woven into this web of fiction. Readers who remember the cocaine wars of the 1980s will recognize them. Those who don't will know who they are soon enough.
Most people associate Jamaica with rastas and reggae and I wanted to break outside of that box by showing readers a slice of Jamaican life seldom seen in fiction. In The Tangled Web, I take you behind the closed doors of the island's elite and on the next page, walk you through impoverished city slums where violent drug posses rule. Do I take you to the beach? Of course, but not before I show you the beauty of the mountains rising to over 7,000 feet on the eastern end of the island. These are the mountains of my childhood memories, the mountains where the world-famous Blue Mountain coffee grows.
