Levine’s characters are well developed and engaging. An absorbing and intricate mystery abounding with intrigue and government conspiracies.


In Eye of the Redeemer, self-described “average joe” Ray Silver is in the middle of a midlife crisis and a personal quest to justify his life when he finds himself on a sixty-year-old naval relic sailing for the Philippines—an accidental key player in a covert CIA operation. After he is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as a national hero, he tries to balance a budding relationship with finding out what really happened to his long-lost brother, Frank, who may or may not have been with him in the jungles of Luzon.

In Beyond Redemption, Ray's search for Frank continues, even as his new wife encourages him to surrender to the simplicity of their Hawaiian family life. But his innocent search proves deadly and he's not the only one interested in the outcome—especially when he enlists the help of a young investigative reporter. The more they dig, the more red flags arise—at the CIA, NSA, and with powerful San Francisco Congresswoman Francine Manetti, preoccupied with Frank and a package of documents he supposedly had.

Ray soon learns that Manetti, in her quest to become the first female Speaker of the House, is a force to be reckoned with—a painful lesson learned through congressional hearings and underhanded dealings alike.

Can Ray keep his family from becoming collateral damage? Is Frank Silver alive? Is Manetti willing to do anything to keep those documents from stalling her drive to become the most powerful woman in America?
