This modern novel confronts a contemporary reality of tolerance, prejudice, and violence in American society.

I am through with this dishonest author!!
In Book 1 of the Brent Marks series, A Patriot's Act, author Kenneth Eade said in the end note that US citizens had died while being held at Guantanamo. Only one US citizen was ever held there and that was for only a few days until he was determined to be a US citizen. He did not die there. The author's statement was outrageously dishonest. In this book during jury selection the author has the protagonist implying that a policeman in an actual case in the US had murdered a civilian. Both federal and state investigations concluded that the shooting was a righteous one. This author is being driven by apparent political motives to make outrageous false statements (lies) about two different actual cases in two different books. Readers of fiction are properly asked to suspend disbelief. In the case of author Kenneth Eade he has now lied about two actual cases in two different novels. It is disgusting! He is disgusting!

This could be right from current headline news...
If you could sum up Unreasonable Force in three words, what would they be?
Racism, bigotry and ignorance.
Have you listened to any of Shawn M. Saker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Never heard of Shawn Saker before but thought he did a wonderful job.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extreme reaction, it's just sad to that racial profiling is still going on today. In a society that professes so much tolerance we really have very little.
Any additional comments?
My only complaint about this author is that his books are too short! He writes a very good well thought out coherent plot that is very easy to follow. His plot is concise and his messages are loud and clear. If in doubt, the author does a commentary following the conclusion of each book citing facts used to back up fiction.
As I said the stories are great and they move very quickly. Entertaining and thought provoking. For me what's lacking is character development. It the little intricacies that flesh out and transform the writing into people I can "see".
Anyway, I definately recommend and would like to see more from this author.
