The Land Lord, by Cheryl Colwell, is a very fast paced political thriller. The story focuses on current day Washington D. C. and a threat to over throw the president. In 1948 China’s landlords were killed by peasants and the Communist party took over their land. Now in present day USA, the Chinese are buying up land and businesses at an alarming rate. The United States is being controlled by more Chinese than Americans. The President has turned to Secret Service agent Dain Ryder and Lian Chen from the People Republic of China for help in finding who is behind this. But who can they trust?
I enjoyed reading this story. The suspense and intrigue was very intense and kept the story moving very fast. I did have a little issue will all the characters who just showed up without good introduction. Once I figured out who they all were, I really got into the story. Some of the things in the story that stand out for me are; Lian grew up in China where the Christian faith was not practiced. She is now meeting with the President of the US and he is helping her understand. Another is that Dain’s family members were missionaries to China. His grandfather was killed and father was severely hurt. Dain is now having to put his feelings toward those from China aside and work with them to find who is trying to take over the United States. I think anyone who enjoys political thriller will enjoy this story. There is so much action and suspense to keep the readers interest, yet there is also a touch of romance to make the story lighter.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through BookCrash. This is my honest review.
