Ford's a former naval intelligence officer, and also a "phenomenal psychic, unparalleled lover, and a true Renaissance man. He can see into the future and even into the distant past using his psychic powers to assist special clients who are in crisis."
In other words, the same old hokum dressed up in new-age mumbo-jumbo. In his first book, Ashes to Ashes, he's hired by a beautiful heiress in dire need of a sexual surrogate. aliens, ghosts, Satan worshippers, UFOs, dolphins and other assorted cosmic and supernatural conspiracies... Pendleton left no pulp cliche untouched.
Thanks to the miracle of POD and iUniverse -- and later, e-books, most of his books are now once again available. No, don't thank me.
Don Pendleton was one prolific dude, if nothing else. A Navy vet who served in WWII and Korea, he wrote mystery, action/adventure, science-fiction, crime fiction, and suspense novels, as well as short stories and non-fiction. he also wrote comics, poetry, screenplays and poetry. But he'll always be remember for creating the Mack Bolan: The Executioner series, which became the definitive Men's Action/Adventure series. But somehow, he also found time in there to create private eyes Ford, Joe Copp and Stewart Mann, who actually was a bit of a dry run for Bolan.
STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE'S, UH, MOUTH
