The Osiris Alliance by Jack Ford

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Description: In “The Osiris Alliance” federal prosecutor Adam Stark and journalist Megan Delaney learn of a stolen journal containing surprising links to the infamous Lindbergh baby trial that may reveal answers to the nuclear arms puzzle. As the journal’s powerful owner tries desperately to retrieve it, witnesses involved with the case begin turning up dead. Racing to find the journal and solve the nuclear mystery, Stark and Delaney are confronted with a series of murders and a betrayal that could make them the next victims.

I am always a big fan of conspiracy theory books and Ford puts together an action packed story that really makes you wonder about some of the things our government does without the every day person even knowing it.  Stark and Delaney work well together and neither comes off as gratingly overbearing or helpless.  They help balance out each others strengths and weaknesses although I have to admit there were a couple parts where I was thinking if they could really be so clueless.  One of the major questions being asked through out the book was who was the inside leak in Stark’s investigation and I have to admit I guessed the answer almost as soon as the question came up but that did not take away from the enjoyment of the story and watching Stark eliminate his suspects one by one.  This book keeps you wanting to read until the last page.  I would have to say the only down side for me was the romance between Stark and Delaney.  I did not feel like it was really necessary (and yes this is coming from a person who loves a little romance in her books).  Still, this book is a wonderful roller coaster ride.

    LOL. Yeah, the title reminds me of a Tom Clancy book. I’m picturing a young Harrison Ford in it.
