Captain Zack Adams is the only American who can identify an elusive terrorist, codenamed Chameleon. Disfigured during his Delta Force unit's failed attempt to neutralize the menacing terrorist, Adams is airlifted stateside. When he is reported missing from a military hospital, Pentagon officials fear Adams has been abducted by terrorists. Adams's wife becomes severely depressed when she learns her husband is missing in action, and their teenage son becomes incorrigible. Working from a secret military base in the Middle East, an unconventional C.I.A. counterterrorism specialist, Jack "Tarzan" Trzansky, takes matters into his own hands and masterminds a plan to neutralize Chameleon, locate the missing captain and restore domestic tranquility to the Adams household. Tarzan prefers working alone but he realizes his latest plan will require the assistance of a skilled operator. Her name is Mia.
Mia is a great story and will undoubtedly be made into a movie. Dr. Remakus has a talent for weaving complex and timely plots. He is a prolific writer and chooses his words well. He places you, the reader, into the action and soon you become one of the characters. As an author and college professor of writing, I would give him an A+. Terms like page-turner and must-read seem mild when trying to categorize this book. His writing is contagious, despite being prescribed by a medical doctor.
Mia is fast paced and a fun blend of romance and spy thriller, very much recommended.
There are a number of twists and turns. There's a lot of nice character development. The romance between husband and widow is especially nice. If you think that you have every permutation of the veteran-returns-home story, this one will definitely take you by surprise.
Mia is the story of a soldier who, due to a horrible accident, can only be saved through a gender-changing operation. The CIA then hires her to take down the terrorist responsible for the accident. The plot seems silly on the onset, but it somehow works, and works really, really well.
If Lifetime produced this as a movie, I'd watch. This is definitely a book that will keep you turning the pages. It's probably one of the more interesting stories one could read this year. It definitely shows the adaptability of the human spirit.
Dr. Bernard Leo Remakus can spin quite the story, as proven in his latest fiction work, Mia, an intricately woven tale sprinkled with controversial subjects.
