ForeWord Magazine Raves About THE DEVIL'S PITCHFORK

November 18, 2006
ForeWord Magazine gave a long review of THE DEVIL'S PITCHFORK. I'm too lazy to type up the whole review, but here's the last two paragraphs:

"Writers are often advised to write what they know. This author, a microbiologist with experience in tissue and cell culturing, has done that with frightening effectiveness, promising sleepless nights for his readers. Reminiscent of recent terrorist acts in the news, Terry's tale stirs together a sense of imminent death and destruction for thousands across the globe, a conspiracy that involves people in the upper echelons of government, and discord and disagreement between the very agencies, like the FBI and the military, meant to help save the world. He keeps the nightmare real and personal as Stillwater fights his own panic attacks before each exposure to a bio-hazardous situation, and an attractive scientist who participated in the creation of Chimera fights for her life after inadvertently infecting herself with the virus.

"Terry is a freelance writer, editor, and novelist (his previous books include Dirty Deeds: A Meg Malloy Mystery and a collection of novellas). Here, he successfully writes a truly scary scenario, but what's even more frightening is that the events are all too possible, including the terrorists' plan to spread the virus by means of soda cans carried on to airplanes heading to different countries. It makes the reader wonder--and worry--about how much fact is in this author's fiction, and just who has control of the devil's pitchfork."

Best,
Mark Terry
