    The US President has become a President for Life, and the country is run by Unionist loyalists. Those insurgents opposing this new world are hunted down and sent to prisoner camps in remote Western states.

    Warren Linder, a 38 year old Journeyman CIA case officer, has a history as a self-starter, but he is now disillusioned and filled with regret with what his life has turned into, including escapism through alcohol, and chronic nightmares featuring the people he had targeted

    I thoroughly enjoyed this spy adventure/thriller set in the world of the dystopian “Forty Days at Kamas” of a post American Civil War II. Follow Warren Linder, a former CIA agent now working for the DSS (Department of State Security), in a gripping spy adventure of betrayal, love, and the desire to make reparation. Follow Linder into the icy Yukon Prison camps and travel a near- impossible 2000 miles towards a hoped-for freedom and to fulfil a promise and find a lost love. The book is well writt ...more

    I have read all three of the Kamas Trilogy books. Other reviewers will certainly summarize the story for you so I will pass on that. What I want to address is one of the things I use to rate a book. I feel that the development of characters is central to how much I enjoy reading. Mr. Fleming is first rate on this score.

    That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this book as well. I had read the other 2 books in this trilogy and I believe this one is the best one. The story takes place in the future after the Second Civil War and the elected President names himself President for life.

    Exile Hunter is the best Fleming book to date. Well researched and craftily written, this book takes the reader from Beirut to the Yukon Territories on an adventure that is much too short. Describing the woes that the President for Life is handing us by slowly removing our treasured freedoms, this book engages the reader's psyche and won't let go. Stay tuned as Fleming grabs your interest and rockets you into the world of espionage as you gasp for the breath of freedom.

    This story is all about the AFTER like all the stories in this set. Set in a Post Revolutionary State the United States has become a scary place to live, no longer are we the land of the free, but the free to be charged, imprisoned and whatever else the President for life deems he wants to do! This story is about a man that is an agent with a conscious. Linder must find what he needs to make his life what he wants it to be to free himself from the self torture he has begun.

    [Preston Fleming] is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. With the third installment of his Kamas Trilogy he again kept me up reading late at night. [Exile Hunter] was the strongest book in the trilogy and that is saying a lot since I loved them all. Also in my experience trilogies third book is usually the weakest.

    The intertwining character relationships kept you wanting more. I also like how what you read about in the first two books was reinforced and the story truly continued.

    This is a very perceptive novel. Conceived possibly with the idea that when people allow government to do for them what we should doing ourselves we lose all our rights.

    Words That Touched My Heart <3 

    The phrase "banality of evil" came to mind, bringing into focus how tyranny was not the product of tyrants alone, but also of ordinary people who accepted the premises of state power and obeyed unjust orders with the attitude that their behavior was perfectly normal.

    Title: The title makes one wonder what the story might be about. It perfectly suits the story as its a story about a hunter who was sent to exile.

    Not your usual ‘in the future book’. Not so far in the future 2023. The US has a president-for-life, and they have annexed part of Canada. For a while I thought the book was going on for ever. Especially after the hero walked out of the Yukon all the way to Utah to help a woman he met when a teenager at a dance class. But it was fascinating and very real. Can’t explain it all here but worth the time, looking forward to other books from this author. Vivid imagination!

    During the early 2020s, Warren Linder, approaching middle age, is an intelligent, honest, but narrow-minded spy working for the Department of State Security (“DSS”). He recently joined the DSS following the end of America’s Second Civil War. The war had drained America’s military and economy, and a series of other ill-fated skirmishes—notably with the Chinese in Manchuria—had damaged America’s military reach. In an effort to save resources, Linder’s previous employer, the CIA, was folded into th ...more

    Exile Hunter is the third book of the Kamas Trilogy - however, it can be read as a stand alone book. I did not read the other two books in the series and based on the descriptions of the other two books, the story lines are autonomous and the characters do not cross. What does seem similar is the theme of rising up against the odds through sheer personal strength, optimism, and fortunate opportunity. Another similarity is the time period (2024-2029) during a very turbulent time. The US is not th ...more

    This is a dystopian novel about a one-time intelligence officer/operative in a new United States. There has been a second civil war, and out of this emerged a President for Life, an impoverished US, a strong Beirut. In these circumstances, the ex-CIA operative, Linder, agrees, as a member of the Department of State Security, an amalgamation of the CIA, military assets and other intelligence services. At their directive he goes to Beirut after a wealthy insurgent to secure him and his assets. Unl ...more

    A timely story of a possible future for America if we take our freedom for granted. Initially, it took me a chapter to really get into it, but the story line is gripping and I didn't want it to end.

    This book takes place in the near-future. The government has been seized by the Unionists, any propaganda that the US is still a free country has long since passed, and the hunt is on for any insurgent who committed a perceived crime against the homeland. Warren Linder, a former CIA agent now working with the newly formed DSS, hunts these exiles, whether they are in the US or abroad.

    Although this is the third book in the Kamas Trilogy, it is a prequel, set in the period prior to and overlapping forty days at Kamas. And can be read as a stand-alone book.

    Through a deal through Amazon, I downloaded this ebook onto my reader. The blurb sounded interesting. I discovered, much to my chagrin, that this was the third book in a trilogy by the author. Although it made a valiant effort to stand alone, it truly needed much of the background presumably provided by the first two installments. The premise was good, and the characterizations of the players was excellent, but there were too many unknowns that got in t

    This was the last book of the Kamas Trilogy. The first part of this book was very gripping and interesting, probably due to the fact that it is set out in Beirut and not in the future of the US. The living and the plot is more to the lovely Mediterranean live style. Everything is slowed down, food and drink have a greater importance and how to talk and to negotiate with each other is different but nevertheless amiably. When the plot moves on to the US, the style changed completely. It was gettin ...more

    This was a long book. I had a kindle edition, and it felt like 500 pages. The good news is; I was never bored from the first page to the last. Linder is such a well conceived main character, and the story offers the perfect amount of flashbacks and flashforwards to really flesh out his character. I especially enjoy the author's storyline tie into his other books, such as his book 40 Days in Kamas. I love references to other books, it makes the experience so much more personal.

    Discretely tied together

    I read all three Kamas books concurrently.... at some points I wasn't sure if I may have "overloaded" on the series.... BUT... each time, I got more and more engulfed.
    I really loved how they truly are stand alone books, yet the subtle hints of things cleverly dropped in that I've read in the others is very well done.
    Each book starts with a lot of foundational and backstory. Then it seems that the 2nd halves of each book seem to ramp up and magnetize to my hand. I can't

    I would have given this book 4.5 stars if I could.

    I really enjoyed this book. It had a wonderful plot line which moved along at a good pace. The characters were well developed and I cared about what happened to them. The ending was well done. It wasn't predictable enough to know what going to happen, but I had closure when it was all said and done.

    My one concern is whether someone who has never read 40 Days at Kamas will completely understand the post CW II world that Flemming has created. Ther

    I picked this book up from a promotion at Bookbub and I'm so glad I did. I have not read the previous books in this trilogy so this review is based solely on this book.

    I found I soon got involved with the storyline and although this is the third in a series, it stands alone as a readable story on it's own. The characters I found to be rounded and full if at times the story became a little stretched with 'deja vu'.

    Overall a very enjoyable read. I will certainly be coming back for more from this

    Stretched out

    A very good story...there were times while the main character was imprisoned that I felt like I was serving time with him cause it took so long to describe some of the events at the time. But other then that it moved along well with some surprises and a satisfying conclusion. Thanks to Mr Fleming for not using any harsh language and not going overboard on any intimate scenes.

    Excellent in every way

    There are those books that are meant for a way of passing time and then there are those books that make you forget about time passing. This book is the latter.
    A novel about historic future, a warning about where America could be headed as told by those looking to correct the mistakes of the past, and change the future. Perhaps a warning to those of us who refuse to believe that freedom comes at a cost.
