Review: Ask The Fire by Dennis Paddie (Lethe Press)
ASK THE FIRE is the new novel by poet/playwright Dennis Paddie. It is an ambitious piece of myth making. Paddie blends a unique spiritual vision with the high octane action of a spy novel and reimagines the mysteries of the Knights Templar in a new, daring way. Add to all this the free loving of the 60s, a secret history of homosexuality and the horrific 9/11 attacks and you get a fascinating book; I read it and then read it again (thus delaying this reviewer's post), it was that compelling. This is a new kind of thriller and I look forward to more of the same from Paddie. If you enjoy fast paced action, conspiracy theories and intrigue, this novel will definitely whet your appetite while it adds new dimensions to the thriller genre.
