The Beekeeper’s Secret: A Max Ford Thriller

By Sally Fernandez

LISA McCOMBS, Readers’ Favorite, 5-Star Review  The Beekeeper’s Secret is a serious novel of intrigue an political crime. Pitting sister against brother in a fatal moral dance between the proverbial good and evil, Sally Fernandez pens a fast moving, thought-provoking story of disturbing information that could easily morph into the next conspiracy theory; this time related to Big Pharma and the possibility of proven holistic medical treatments. As an individual living with an incurable autoimmune disease, I easily relate to the conflict of holistic medicine versus Big Pharma. Fernandez’s use of timely details keeps this novel contemporary and relatable to the current generation, yet entices the veteran reader of criminal espionage. The Beekeeper’s Secret races to the top of my favorite books and this reviewer is anxious to read more from Sally Fernandez.”

GRANT LEISHMAN, Readers’ Favorite, 5-Star Review  “Fernandez writes with clarity and with evidently well-done research as she fleshes out a story that has scientific undertones. Her ability to clearly elucidate scientific research to her readers is definitely a winning hallmark of this author’s style. The plot twists and turns with surprising regularity as the story races to its final conclusion, yet still leaves the door open for the next book in the Max Ford series. I enjoyed this read and would definitely put Sally Fernandez high on my list of excellent thriller writers.”

JACK MAGNUS, Readers’ Favorite, 5-Star Review  “Sally Fernandez’s sleuth mystery novel, The Beekeeper’s Secret: A Max Ford Thriller, is an intriguing blend of environmental thriller and hard-boiled sleuth detective story. Max Ford is a grand throwback to the old school of hard-core detectives who toss back the hard liquor both to forget and to keep the gray cells actively considering the newest mystery to solve. Her sidekick, also a former spy, Sam, complements her perfectly, and watching as the two detectives untangle the mystery behind Senator Lance’s death is marvelous fun. I especially appreciated the major role that advances in alternative healing plays in this absorbing story. The Beekeeper’s Secret: A Max Ford Thriller is most highly recommended.”

MICHAEL DeSTEFANO, Award-winning author of The Composer’s Legacy  “Twist and turns abound as Fernandez precisely knits facts with imagination to entertain and to educate in a genuine page-turner too irresistible to put down.” Read More […]

TOM WYSMULLER, NASA Apollo Era (Ret.), VP Medical Claims Operations, Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance Company  “Relentless tenacity couples with a ‘Never Give In; Never Give Up’ attitude, driving Max to detective stardom. The same intrepid attitude that got us to the Moon and back permeates this heroine’s achievement!!! The reader gets into multiple missions and locations, absorbing each challenge connecting new dimensions of intrigue wrapped in skullduggery! Prepare to get launched into spatial excitement!!!

DR. MICHELE BENOIT, Chiropractor   “As an alternative practitioner, I am thrilled to see this book available. Knowing some of the people involved, I am looking forward to reading and sharing The Beekeeper’s Secret.”

GENE BRANDI, Gene Brandi Apiaries, Past President of American Beekeeping Federation  “Sally Fernandez has written a fascinating novel which revolves around the honey bee and the beekeepers who are working hard to keep them alive and healthy. Even though this book is a work of fiction, it is intertwined with a great deal of factual information about honey bees.”

DONNA POST, Banking Consultant (Ret.)  “Max Ford is a wonderful character brought to life in all her glory by Sally Fernandez, an author who weaves intrigue, mystery, drama, and lighthearted repartee into a well researched book which addresses an issue that impacts all of us. The Beekeeper’s Secret is a must-read—a fast read—and a read I would strongly recommend.”

KENNEY DeCAMP, Physician Assistant, Chef, Producer, Mime  “Again, I am astonished by a Fernandez thriller with such amazing and authentic research that keeps my mind reeling with suspense while continuing to be educated. As a devotee of alternative medicine and a lover of nature, The Beekeeper’s Secret must be revealed.”

ANN E. HOWELLS, Wine Consultant  “Another eye-opener with dangerous consequences. Max Ford does it again, using her tenaciousness to shine a light on the self-serving manipulation from those who espouse to protect us. Max exposes how our freedom of choice is being sacrificed in the name of greed. This book should have been written long ago, but better late than never, because you will not want to put it down.”

ALFREDO S. VEDRO, Media Production Consultant  “The fun thing about reading thriller-mysteries or mystery-thrillers is connecting the dots. A good storyteller keeps you guessing with bits and pieces of plot line that don’t seem connected, and then drops in a hint that sets you off in the right direction and then surprises you with yet another turn. As in her earlier novels, Sally Fernandez does it again with The Beekeeper’s Secret — a crisp, fast read built on intriguing, clever, contemporary issues that make you think a lot, with a dash of humor here and there.”
