In a post-9/11 world, Fenly Aquino must act fast to stop another terrorist attack against New York City- and time is running out. Stationed in Madrid, he partners with Spanish Security team member Raquel Lopez to follow the trail of money in a laundering scheme they believe is being used to purchase weapons of mass destruction. But the perpetrators are elusive, using prostitution as a front for their operation. Will they catch the suspects in time to stop the attack? And can they handle the truth they uncover when everything is said and done?Believe me, this book will keep you hooked until you reach the very last page. Tom Milton is an excellent writer with a fluid, natural style that is all too easy to lose yourself in. I loved his portrayal of the main character, Fenly, as a flawed person who strove to overcome what he was, and to become a better person. In the book, Tom brings you back and forth from the present to the past to give the reader a sense of who Fenly really was and why he was doing what he did for a living. In a strange sort of way it was an inspirational book that also dealt with the very dark and personal subject of 9/11 and the impact that it had on Americans.I also loved how the author gave the reader a sort of taste of the region of Madrid, culturally as well as culinarily (…is that a word?). Food and books have always kind of meshed for me anyway, so it’s always fun when an author incorporates food into their writing!I did have one small gripe about the book, however. The pace of the story seemed perfect to me, until I got about 3/4 of the way through, and then for some strange reason it seemed like the plot became hurried or even a little forced. Without giving away the ending, I feel like there was a certain part of the book that should have taken a bit longer to play out in a more natural way, but maybe that’s just me hoping for a sequel. Either way, I still really enjoyed it, and if you like a good international crime/thriller, I think you will too.I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.Check out this review on my blog: EpicBookQuest.wordpress.com
Infamy was a Giveaway Book from Goodreads.This story kept me coming back for more. I wanted to know more about the characters and where the story was going. I was happy to learn more about Fenly, the central character, who had been rescued from a criminal path as a youth and had turned his life around to try to help others. The novel (really a novella) is very short which didn't help the story to develop as much as it could have. Fenly and Rachel are on a race against time to prevent a tragedy with global implications, and a longer work could have lent more literary justice and style to the action and adventure. It also cut short a predictable love story between Rachel and Fenly. I'm ok that it was predictable, but a little more demonstrable chemistry between the two would have made more sense. Instead, their love line seemed more logical and academic.I was not let down at the end of the work but I was not lifted up either.
I won this book through Goodreads First Read program.Milton uses the vechile of historical fiction to voice his political views on the government's reaction to the terrorist disaster which was 9/11. I personally don't agree with his synopsis but to each his own.It is an entertaining story about a homeland security agent who goes to Spain to investigate the threat of another terrorist attack originating through a money laundering scheme in Spain. In Spain Feny meets Raquel who is an anti-terrorist spanish agent. They work together to try to prevent another attack on New York City.A quick and enjoyable read that people need to remember is complete fiction. In the splintering political world in which we live in, where both sides visciously attack the actions of the other, this book pours gas on the fire.
I received this book for free from goodreads.com. The timing was perfect with it being the anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers. I found myself remembering how I felt; the fear, anger, loss and the hope that someone would be found alive. The plot line is exceptional. The characters are well developed and in the corse of the story, you learn why they are making certain choices. My heart ached for the young girls being used in such a horrible way.I will be passing this story on to others to read.
I won this through the Goodreads First Read Program. I personally loved this book. The plot was full of action and conspiracies, and I ended up staying up very late in order to finish it, as I just couldn't put it down. It's just the right length, and the characters and the plot really draw you in. I'd recommend it to anyone! :)
I won this book in a free Goodreads giveaway and I'm grateful that I did. I thought this book brought another aspect to the post-911 era to the front. How terrorism is an international concern not just an American concern. The flash back scenes could have been distracting if not written properly but I found them to be helpful and helpful in fleshing out the main character. An enjoyable read.

"Infamy" By Tom Milton Tells story of a union of America and Spain working together to stop a terrorist plot that seems to be targeting New York City once more.The characters are believable and the plot intence. Makes for a good read!
Milton makes great use of conspiracy theories to create a novel around the 9/11 and 3/11 attacks around the world. His combination of suspense and a love story hits the mark.I truly enjoyed this book! I hope to see more by Mr. Milton.
