A Book Review for Michael Davis' Tainted Hero


Tainted Hero is the story of Eric Emerson, a man who’s been to hell and back; he has seen firsthand the underbelly of society and lived to tell about it. His experiences as a Army Ranger in SpecOps taught him much about himself while reaffirming choices he’s made which most people would find morally ambiguous. Eric speaks his mind and is so firm in his beliefs that even a preacher walks away rethinking all that he’s been taught about religion. He’s a fixer with a sense of justice but the only thing he can’t fix is his failing marriage.

Samantha Cassidy is a woman with a deep secret. She and Eric have been friends since being classmates together years earlier in Monterrey. As a single mother and Major in the army, Samantha finds it hard, at times, to reconcile her top secret work with the demands of a nine-year-old son.

When circumstances bring the two of these main characters together to work on a government project, things begin to escalate – not only between Eric and Samantha but between two factions of government officials on opposing sides of how to handle the terrible destiny foretold in the Osiris study.

When you sit down to read Tainted Hero, make sure you have several hours and a box of Kleenex nearby because you won't want to put it down until the very last page. Davis does a splendid job of developing his characters and bringing together several intricately intertwined plot points. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you will definitely be left with a new perspective on recent global occurrences which Davis has eerily foreshadowed. Eric Emerson is definitely a hero, and he is definitely tainted by guilt and the scars of actions past, but you’ll find yourself rooting for him and his survival in this engrossing and action-packed tale.

I highly recommend Tainted Hero to any reader – whether you love the romance, action, mystery, or nonfiction genres. Its appeal is universal and it has something compelling to offer anyone who reads it. I loved this book and I can’t wait to read Davis’ next offering, Forgotten Children.

Tainted Hero can be purchased in either digital or print format from www.champagnebooks.com and other sites where e-books and print books are sold.
