Review: FEVERS by Joel Homer. Tour.





REVIEW: FEVERS by Joel Homer

Wildly engrossing and unforgettable, FEVERS is a rocketing ride into the heart of the Amazonian jungle, the heart of darkness, and the heart of evil. At first akin to a fictional Stanley & Livingston saga as American expatriate reporter William Straw hunts for the elusive, invisible North American "messiah " to the Indio, the unidentifiable Michael Fevers--reportedly a strong leader, dedicated to preservation of the native tribes--the One prophesied throughout Native history in Latin America. With every twist and turn, on land an on the river, Straw's quest becomes a journey akin to Joseph Conrad's HEART OF DARKNESS: a journey of terror, heartache, terrible physical injury, indignity, and madness. I don't know that I will ever be able to forget this novel.

FEVERS is a novel unlike any you have ever read. Exotic adventure, white knuckled suspense, torrid romance, and a haunting portrait of three damaged individuals – one man who has turned beast, one who must confront the beast within himself, and the woman torn between them.

Rio de Janeiro. 1984.

There are rumors that somewhere deep in the steamy rainforest of the Amazon a man, once civilized, is hiding in green shadows. To the primitive Brazilian Indios, he is considered their long-awaited “pale-skinned messiah.” Others believe he is an evil god with powers to stir the native masses to a frenzied, killing pitch. And others suspect he might be Michael Fevers.

Into the lush tropics comes a troubled American, rebellious journalist, embittered Vietnam vet, desperate soldier of fortune. William Straw, who soon forms an uneasy alliance with a beautiful anthropologist, continues his tortured upriver journey-from jungle shantytown to opulent plantation, from explosive passion to brutal murder. Whether he is pursuing a story, an adventure, or a chance to finally exorcise his own inner demons, nothing will prepare William Straw for the sudden violence and bizarre cruelty of the one who is waiting ahead — Michael Fevers.

Praise for ‘Fevers’ by Joel Homer:

“Very engrossing novel. It felt a bit like reading a modern version of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. The plot moves quickly and smoothly. The excitement never ends.”- Gerald Loev, Amazon Reviewer
