Infiltration

Infiltration: Consortium Book 4

Book 4 in the Consortium series arrived healthy and on-time March 1, 2021. So far, feedback is terrific. As of June 2021, Amazon reviewers ranking it 4.6 out of 5 stars. I’ve also received several direct messages to me on how much they enjoyed the book. You can read some of those comments below and on the Consortium pages.

One reader is constantly trying to figure out where to take the storyline and offering suggestion after suggestion. He’s got some good ideas, only I can’t tell him if he is on to something or not. That would ruin the surprise. What do you think?

Read it today and tell me what you think.

  1. Consortium books are the most disturbing books I’ve ever read. Some lines I skipped cause l could not stomach the linens. Hated the kidnapping, training, the abuse and extent of it and the killing, the way they killed. Hated the characters, could not find a redeeming quality in any of them, but read all 4 books in succession. I was hooked in my hate. Then #4 ended with no satisfaction and that is driving me crazy

    1. Ellen,
      Thank you for your honesty. I am of a mixed mind with the whole thing. The thing is, I firmly believe that this kind of behavior among our fellow man does exist. It’s what keeps me looking over my shoulder all the time, looking for that one individual who believes I’m too close. Book 5 is in development and I’m more than three quarters done. I hope to have it out this fall. Stay tuned. The action is really heating up with new characters, new investigations, as the hunters become the prey. I’m pretty excited about it all. Thank you for reading my stories. I appreciate it more than you could ever imagine.
      Richard

  2. I absolutely loved the consortium series, I can’t wait to see how it resolves. You left me hanging at the end of infiltration book four. I hope book 5 will be the conclusion because I am so hoping for some kind of happy ending. I hope it comes out very soon. Thank you so much for being such a great writer I really enjoyed your books

  3. Hello Richard,,

    ALL of your books so far have been abruptly shocking, intriguing, dark yet strangely compelling. So why stop there? Next on the list I can see an illustrated series. Perhaps even a look from the kitchen staff side and their association with each other. What goes through their mind as they prepare a fellow collegue for dinner after conversion or anyone else for that matter? Then there is the common object in all kitchens, the cook book and meat preparation. That subject alone would have the gourmand salivating.

    You might also show the education of your ‘Younglings’ and there learning the commonality of their ultimate conversion.

    And yes, that’s poetlaryat rather than poetlaureat. A take on an old family joke (comes from my own writing background).

    Cheers

    1. An interesting idea. I have often thought about what goes on in the mind of those working behind the scenes as they perform their duties, knowing that they too, will one day be slaughtered. Food for thought. Thanks for the suggestion.

      1. I even have a title for you:

        ‘The Conversion Cookbook, A Gourmand’s Journey From The Stable To The Table’.

        You might include individual cuts such as chops,, roasts, loins,, filets, spices, vegetables, sauces, basting techniques, etc. Of course, to make readers really squirm illustrations are a must.

        E joy your journey, Richard.
