Harrison, an unmoralistic detective for the Pinkerton Detective Agency; who scans the train stations looking for wanted criminals. After getting a tip from the train master that Alec isn't who he claims to be, Sam decides to follow him and make his move when the timing is proper.
There are two things he hates in life, Alec and women and along the way, Alec manages to evade his capture. The same cannot be said of the people who get in Sam's way, many of those people end up dead. After Alec arrives in Spain, he is befriended by a Spanish girl named, Tamarah, with whom he falls in love with. Things don't turn out as expected and Alec is left emotionally and physically drained as he attempts to fight for the Spanish. After Sam catches up with Alec and begins to destroy his life, Alec has no choice but to disappear, but where will he go that Samuel won't find him and who has to suffer along the way?
I thought this was an extremely charged book and thought the plot was written with clarity and excitement. This book is not for the faint of heart, there is a good deal of graphics and expletives that may not be suitable for those do not enjoy over-the-top adult situations. However, most will enjoy the fast-pace of the narrative and the mystery surrounding the story, as well, the historical aspects dispersed throughout was equally enjoyable to read. I thought the characters and the plot worked great together. Samuel was a despicable man and he was written in perfect format with loathing and hatred, you couldn't help but dislike him and feel for Alec as he tries to out maneuver and evade Sam's tactics.http://convecon.xtage.com.br/16089-contactar-con-chicas.php
Tears in the Dust
I liked reading about the historic tidbits strewn through out and reading about Canada. I would give Tears In The Dust a four out of five stars, while I enjoyed the read and couldn't put the book down, I found some of the of the story was TOO fast-paced and somewhat abrupt and it just stole a little bit from the overall effect of the story, however, it is a worthy read and if you enjoy a good mystery adventure, then you will definitely love this one!
I look forward to reading more from the author, Chuck Waldron. Jan 16, Craig rated it it was amazing. This novel really had it all.

Travelling through Canada, Alec meets Seth who is also off to fight and the two become fast friends riding the rails down to Texas.
Unbeknownst to Alec, a very large, very ruthless, madman has begun a lifelong hunt for him mistakenly believing Alec to be his father Ian.
This madman is Samuel Harrison. He is a devout Pinkerton driven in his ha This novel really had it all. He is a devout Pinkerton driven in his hatred toward woman and communism. Harrison's obsession quickly becomes Alec and his family. Alec sails to France and joins the wretched fighting in Spain where he meets his one true love Tamara. By the end of the war Alec is weary, injured, and just wants to go home.
He returns and becomes a plant supervisor in a small town in Ontario. As the plant is gearing up production for the second World War Alec is unaware of his impending showdown that awaits with Harrison. Like I said, this book had it all: All of that and it is written very clean and direct with great pacing. Dec 26, Jamie Dubois rated it it was ok Shelves: This was a book I won and although a very good book, I have to say I would not have bought this myself.
It was interesting and full of some highs and lots of lows but it is not my style of book and took me quite awhile to read. It is a story of Alec Ferguson's journey to Spain to fight in the Spanish Civil War of and the desperate, unsuccessful attempts of Samuel T Harrison, to catch him. In the passing of time, Alec loses a best friend, a girl friend and both his parents.
If you are into w This was a book I won and although a very good book, I have to say I would not have bought this myself.
If you are into war type or military type novels, this is a great book to read.

Relive the red carpet now! Tears in the Dust Trevor Wallis is a very successful salesman, he works for a medium software company but one day his life changes forever. A well written storyline adapted for film and brought to life by the cast behind the brilliant cult sitcom Up North.
Steve Pollard really catches the eye with his chilling portrayal of the evil fraudster responsible for the drastic change in fortune for an entire workforce. The ending is pure joy, restoring faith in human nature and a tribute to good samaritans everywhere. I am so pleased the Up North cast have made it to the big screen, may this gem of a movie about fraud, deception, homelessness and redemption be the first of many true tales brought to life by this mercurial band of Northern actors, editors and script writers.
