A Thousand Suns - by Jim Haberkorn

About the Book: 
It's not easy being an out-of-work spy---especially when you're on a hit list or two. When Rulon saves a Russian agent from a gang, he has no idea that the consequences will be the deadliest he's ever faced. With the help of his Swiss punk wife, Rulon must once again save the world in this thrilling adventure.

My Review: 
It's not often that I read a book worth RAVING about, but A Thousand Suns blew me away! The bags under my eyes testify that I read all 320 pages in less than 24 hours - good thing my kids can cook, because I couldn't put this book down. I love action, adventure, suspense... unfortunately, most authors seem to think those elements also involve profanity, and, if you're familiar with my reading taste, you know I hate profanity. Haberkorn's writing is so ingenious he doesn't need to stoop to harsh language to portray his story. I loved the witty interchange between "Cowboy"(Rulon) and his sassy wife Yohaba. We have an alter-ego "Boris" that lives at our house, and he came to life in this book. My only regret is that I didn't read Einstein's Trunk, the first in this series, first. I will now be reading it, then I will pass both onto my husband and teenaged son! 

A Thousand Suns   and Einstein's Trunk are available on AmazonBarnes and Noble, and other online bookstores.  

About the Author: 
Jim has lived on three continents and conducted business in over 40 countries. Brooklyn is his birthplace, but he has lived in California, North Carolina, Washington, Idaho, South Africa, and Switzerland. He still has a home in Boise and loves both Idaho and Switzerland. No wonder his hero, Rulon Hurt, had roots in Idaho, graduated from Boise State University, and lives in Zurich - very similar to his history. Jim currently lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland with his encouraging and ever-resourceful wife, Kim.


  1. Thanks for the recommendation. I am always looking for great books.

  2. These two books can be recommended to anyone who loves to read good and thrilling stories. I have read both, I can recommend both whole-heartedly, and I would recommend to put them on the bestseller list. The only bad thing about it is - you probably don't get much sleep until you are finished reading, as it is almost impossible to put down the books once you started with them. THEY ARE BOTH GREAT!
