THE LABYRINTHINE PATH TO THE TRUTH Finding themselves in the crosshairs of the same men who killed Michael, Jon and Mara must navigate a complex web of historical cover-ups and modern-day subterfuge, outwitting and outrunning their all-powerful pursuers as they race through the monuments and museums of Manhattan in a labyrinthine treasure hunt to discover the last secret of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., before their enemies can bury the truth – and them – forever.

From page one, the author pulled me into the story, making me feel a part of the intense plot line. From murder, to conspiracy, to amazing twists, this author takes the reader on one heck of a ride!

Jonathan Rickner's character is absolutely awesome. I felt a part of him instantly, and the wild suspense ride he went on, I was right there beside him. Finding out your brother is dead because of suicide just doesn't cut it for Jonathan. I totally was with him when he knew there was more sinister stuff behind the "suicide". Enlisting the help of Michael's fiance, Mara, Jonathan sets out to uncover the truth behind his brother's death.

In the 1950's you just don't get a lot of murders popping up, so what Jonathan and Mara uncover is just jaw dropping. The reason behind Michael's death will leave you stunned. It's a conspiracy of secrets, lies, death and so much more. But, for Jonathan and Mara, their time is limited, and running out fast.

Jonathan Rickner and his brother are very close but have not spoken frequently to each other because Michael Rickner has specialized in American history and Jon European history and when this novel opens, Australian. Michael says he has something to share with Jon, a something Michael never gets to tell because he is found dead in his apartment, although the crime has been written off by the police as a suicide! Which is it? Jon races back to Washington D.C. in shock and mind-numbing grief. The greater shock occurs when he hears from Michael's fiance and sees evidence that now leads him to believe Michael was murdered!

To say more would be a spoiler. But the mystery that slowly begins to emerge has to do with the relationship between German and America before the beginning of WWII, one that could shatter those who tell American history from a particular point of view. It's also one that a secret organization is racing to hide by finding and destroying the ultimate paper documents that would prove this to be fact rather than fiction. The Division will stop at nothing and will use any and all available persons to achieve their end!

But the plot goes awry when the head of the Division is faced with a terminal illness and one of the specially trained agents of the Division begins to "think" and "feel" about what his part is in this secret group who have more power than anyone could conceive.

How will what seems a straight-forward, simple plot be resolved? Fortunately, the simple becomes a complex, amazing plot that is fiction but could all too well be actual reality.

Jeremy Burns is a true espionage writer who knows when to ramp up the action and when to insert some provocative description in a well-balanced tapestry of historical, adventure-packed fiction. Well done, indeed, Jeremy Burns!

It is always amazing what history reveals about the deals our government makes in the name of "good for our country". This is the theme of this book. The search for the truth is the fiction part of the book. When the brother of a murdered man and the murdered man's fiance get together and start to unravel the truth, the part of the government who have been hiding the truth for over fifty years also get involved - again. Jon and Mara make a good team and, of course, uncover all the right clues and take the reader on a whirlwind tour of the Manhattan section of New York City as they uncover each new clue to the location of the dossiers, hidden by John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
This is a well-written book with some great characters who are extremely believable. As the reader, you want to warn Jon and Mara when the bad guys are watching them because the writer has done such a great job of making it all very believable. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys history and fiction thrown together in a way that you feel, "Hey, this could really happen!"

A political not a religious thriller, From the Ashes reminded me nevertheless of The DaVinci Code, in its message of old conspiracies, deadly secrets carried into the present, and lots of codes as clues. In this case, a graduate student Michael is killed when he discovers a political cover up from the days preceding and during WWII. His older brother Jon and his fiancee Mara find Michael's notebook with maps and notes and try to discover the secrets that led to Michael's death.

In the novel, the late John D. Rockefeller Jr. and the Hoover administration made decisions in he early 1930s regarding Germany and the emerging Nazi party. A secret arm of the CIA is hell bent on keeping these a secret and finding Rockefeller's revealing Dossiers, hidden among the buildings and monuments Rockefeller funded and built in the middle of Manhattan. Rather than the Vatican City as in the DaVinci Code, the setting the two protagonists rush through is Manhattan, where they discover clues that lead to other clues to the hidden Dossiers, which the Division is dedicated to find and either hide or destroy.

Lots of action, with bad guys hunting Jon and Mara as they try to work their way in and out of this political and historical maze. A very enjoyable plot- centered read. How much of the history, if any, might be truth or fiction is left by the author for the reader to decide
