“The Alberta Connection, a Ryce Dalton Novel” by R. Clint Peters, a Review by Reynold Bowen

Review: The Alberta Connection, a Ryce Dalton Novel Author: R. Clint Peters © 2011 by R. Clint Peters ISBN-10: 1479258849 ISBN-13: 978-1479258840

This book is an adventure for men. It begins when Ryce Dalton has taken an observation post position near to a cabin in northern Montana. As he watches, he thinks about his military career, and how he came to be in law enforcement. Then, 4 men approach the cabin, and are brutally murdered by some of an unknown group residing in the cabin. Ryce knows that he is outnumbered, and much too far away from the cabin to intervene, so he does the only thing possible. He quietly leaves his position, and when he is far enough away, he reports his findings. This starts an interstate search for the occupants of the cabin, and a group of stolen laptop computers that are suspected to be in the hands of these people. With every page of the story the reader finds more information about just how important these laptops are, and also more about the group from the cabin.

R. Clint Peters uses a style reminiscent of a military report, while the reader knows that it is not a report. Different, private, romantic scenes are included to show how human Ryce is, while the military style allows the author to include a abundance of facts, from the exact models of transportation used, to the types of weapons, and ammunition used by the different groups. He even describes what type of memory card is carried in the digital cameras, as those facts are important for the story. By the end of the book, the reader is finally given a glimpse about how complicated the criminal organization actually is, and while massive coordination is required on the part of the law enforcement agencies, the multinational, criminal gang thinks that international borders are but a minor inconvenience. This story lets the reader know just how difficult it is to enforce the law, and it ends with a bang just to keep everything interesting.

The Alberta Connection, a Ryce Dalton novel is a good action novel, made even better by the author’s attention to detail.
