The Second Coming of Angela

"Less than two weeks ago, I was just a working guy, doing my job and going home tired every night. Since then, I’ve discovered that someone I thought had been dead for five years had actually been kidnapped and that I was the one who had to rescue her. I’ve been back and forth to Brazil twice, stolen a dead man’s identity, ripped off a violent Brazilian criminal for a quarter of a million dollars, involved Canada Customs in a scam, been held prisoner, escaped and been on the run throughout Brazil one step ahead of Carlo, a man who wants me dead. Why wouldn’t he? After all, I also ripped off his bank account for a million dollars. Oh, lest I forget, I managed to get myself on the hit lists of two violent criminals. As for how tomorrow goes? Well, tomorrow I could have the blood of a lot of people on my hands. Or I could die. I’m Thomas DeAngelo. You can find me in the pages of The Second Coming of Angela."

This is a very entertaining and well-constructed suspense thriller. The protagonist is put in a perilous situation where he must risk his life to save the life of his ex-wife, whom he believed to be dead. The story comes with a full description of travels in Brazil which is entertaining on its own. Each chapter provides a discrete scene, but I found a constant desire to continue reading. It has a very satisfying and complete ending but still leaves open the possibility of taking it further in subsequent novels. But it doesn’t trick you.

This was an interesting read. You also find out at the end that the author didn't get it published for 17 years, having sat with it until someone they knew pushed to read it and encouraged them. This has a lot of twists and turns and was enjoyable for a thriller read.
