Sinopse

I enjoyed Chasing the Fourth Horse enormously. The plot was brilliant and moved along with both excellent as well as educational facts that in many cases I was not familiar with. There was never a dull moment from cover to cover. The characters in the book were presented in such a way that they became more real than your neighbors. One could feel they knew each individual as though they were acquaintances with which you had personal interaction. D. L. Price has a knack for portraying the characters and the plot in a way that makes the book come alive and you actually feel like you are a part of the story being told. It was extremely well thought out and well written and certainly something I could recommend to anyone. Dr. Robert D. Dryden University Professor Former Dean of Engineering and Computer Science, Portland State University ****** Chasing the Fourth Horse is a winner! D. L. Price has created a fast moving, action packed, futuristic novel which exudes an eerie magnetism. I could not put it down. He masterfully weaves his expert knowledge of nuclear waste with the imminent threat of terrorism and a wholesome view of Christian eschatology. I resonated with his more-than-life characters and kept being reminded that this could happen today. The hoofbeats of the Fourth Horse will be heard in the not so distant future. I anticipate Chasing the Fourth Horse to be a bestseller. Dr. Ray Register (Dr. Register has authored four books on the Middle East. He lived there for thirty-nine years and is fluent in Arabic.
