A very good book and great condition.

Authorities on overcoming fear advise people to get closer to their fears. That advice taken to extremes can lead to some pretty dangerous activities. That's the premise of Days of Drums which takes the daughter of a slain senator working for the U.S. Secret Service protecting other politicians, including Senator Charles Westbourne.

When a deadly assassin targets Westbourne, Holland Tylo finds herself in the cross-hairs of a plot that threatens her career, more lives, and to reveal ugly secrets. The assassin's clever plans put Tylo at a disadvantage . . . one from which she has a hard time recovering.

The plot is pretty straightforward, and the action's pace is fast. If you are like me, you'll find this book to be an enjoyable way to pass the time during an airplane trip or a long wait.

The opening scenes in the book are the best parts. The book ends up being less interesting at the end than in the beginning. Those who enjoy reading about investigations will enjoy the solving-the-crime aspects of the story. Character development and intriguing insights are at a minimum.

This is a fairly entertaining thriller following the current trend of male authors in which the protagonist is a female spy, cop, detective, etc. In this case our heroine works for the Secret Service. There is some unintentional hilarity in this book: The author has serious problems with similes and metaphors. The author has our gal lying in bed. Does a sensuous word picture describe the scene? Not really. He has her lying there "curled like a shrimp." Ideas take hold of her like fishooks lodging in her brain. She senses events "moving on the horizon, arranging and rearranging themselves the way a lava flow crushes and mutates the landscape." Here's an experiment for you. Fill a manila envelope with photographs. Hold them up in the air and dump them out on a desk. Do they fall out like "butterfly wings?" Mr. Shelby thinks they will. Later, our sweet heroine finds that her,"mourning and guilt had been cauterized, like a white hot iron pressed against an open vein, leaving her swollen with contempt." Light continually "crawls", sometimes through the window at dawn, at another time over tinted glass. There are some even better ones, but they have faded from memory. I would have rated the book a "4", but upped it to a "6" because of the humorous similes and metaphors; Days of Drums is worth reading just for those.

There was a good book here somewhere, but it was hidden behind too many inconsistencies in the plot, in the characters actions, and in implausible events. Many times you find yourself wondering how, or why something happened because when you think back to other events it just makes no sense. And some of the events are very implausible as well. The murders at the start of the book are a good example of this if you really think about it.
On top of this, the writing isn't particularally good either. He jumps around with multiple viewpoints in almost every scene for starters. And many sections are not really clear either, you end up reading over parts twice to figure out what is happening. Still, the book isn't that bad. It is definitely readable if you like this kind of thriller, but there are a lot of better options. It will probably make a good movie someday.

This is the first book of Philip Shelby's that I've read...and it won't be the last. Every part of the book kept me turning the pages. I liked the entertaining blend of action and thinking. With rare exceptions, the plot stayed a step ahead of where I expected it to go.
I found Shelby's name through Amazon.com. I like many of David Morrell's books, and Amazon "suggested" that I would probably like Shelby. "Days of Drums" does contain a number of bloody scenes with graphic descriptions. Readers averse to such scenes might want to choose a different book. This characteristic, however, does not dominate the book. Compared with Thomas Harris' books, such as "Red Dragon," this book is mild in this respect.

I first read 'Last rights', in which I thought was a great book. I then picked this one up. Well this one is even better than 'Last Rights'. The intrigue of each character made the book more and more intresting, made you want to know what was going to happen next. Holland Tylo wanted to know what really happened at Westbournes estate, she has to set the record straight because she does not want to be the scate goat. I will not give away to much, all I will say that is you will enjoy this book for its shear brillance. It is action packed, fast moving and gritty. What else do you need in a good book.

Excellent story line with intrique and interesting characters. Holland Tylo,the woman in the book is intellegent and strong. Some of the violence is graphic but you can read quickly through those sections and find yourself caught up in the twists and turns that are probably a realistic look at the Secret Service.
First of Phillip Shelby's books I have read. Will read more. He is very good with his twists and turns and a lot of mystery. I also enjoyed the end were he explained everything out and you could see where you had guessed incorrectly. I will read more of his writings.
