Chaos Above the Sand: A Special Projects Unit Adventure by Bruce Thomas is a war story with heroes who know exactly what is at stake if they fail. Special Projects Unit Director William Eddy, a.k.a. Wild Bill, and Assistant Director Mark Jones, a.k.a. Vector, have their work cut out for them. Iran is hell-bent on taking control of the Middle East, and there aren’t many enemies trying to stop them until the Special Projects Unit gets the wind of it. It is now up to Wild Bill and Vector to figure out how Iran is getting all the necessary information to formulate those attacks and make the job easy for the enemy. However, before the duo knows it, they are surrounded by liars and traitors. Things become even more complicated when secrets from a past deadly global war are exposed and may be used against the SPU by the enemy. Can Wild Bill and Vector stop Iran before it is too late?
Chaos and complications are the two “c’s” that explain Chaos Above the Sand very well. This brilliant novel is a true mystery, and that alone makes it a one-of-a-kind read. Readers hardly find a genuine mystery novel anymore, and that is sad. However, Chaos Above Sand is a fresh break from it all. The story is fantastic. Author Bruce Thomas handles two timelines expertly while also maintaining the integrity of the story. The story opens with action and with a bang, which instantly earns my approval. From there onward, the author maintains the momentum and gives the reader a complete cinematic experience. I didn’t like Wild Bill at first because I didn’t understand him. But as the story progressed, his character developed more, and I experienced his growth from my front-row seat. The secretive second timeline (I will not reveal what it is) was just the right touch to make the story even more interesting. I loved it and highly recommend this book to mystery enthusiasts.
