Render Harmless: A Josh Haman Novel by Marc Liebman will appeal to fans of military and terrorist thrillers. In West Germany, a mysterious group known as the Red hand is targeting Americans, British, and German citizens with car bombs. But there is more: Jews are being killed by the Germans, and the massacres look much like the handiwork of former Nazis. Josh Haman and an elite SEAL team are tasked to find the members of the Red Hand and to make them harmless by neutralizing them. The US government and its allies rely on Josh Haman and Marty Cabot with their team. But can they locate members of this elusive group, complete the mission and get out unscathed? The odds are stacked against them as the action takes center stage.
This is a novel with strong political and historical hints. Marc Liebman has taken the painful historical experience of the Holocaust and the fanaticism of the Nazis who want to create a Fourth Reich and transformed these themes into a compelling narrative with strong plot points and well-developed characters. I liked the fact that his characters are genuinely flawed. For instance, Marty is facing a painful separation from Ma’i, the love of his life. The author builds on the flawed humanity of the characters, infusing the story with realism and making them likable. Render Harmless: A Josh Haman Novel is written in gorgeous prose and I loved both the timely paragraph breaks and the well-crafted dialogues. Such are elements that make for an enjoyable reading experience. Marc Liebman writes great settings, with vivid descriptions of locales and the cultural and historical elements. It is a fast-paced, exciting story for fans of the military, one that is packed with action and intriguing plot twists.
