Item description for 3 Wise Men by Stephen M. Buckler...
The power is not in the Congress, the courts or in the Whitehouse. The power is in the hands of the men manipulating them...it's in the hands of the "3 Wise Men". Evil lurks within politics but explodes within the sanctuary of religion. When the lust for power intersects a plan to destroy the world in the name of God, who can stop the lunacy? Only one man and he is running out of time and not sure who the enemy really is.

Amazing May 31, 2007
I won this book from the author on his myspace page! He signed it for me and it is one of my prized possessions now! This book has you from the beginning. A real page turner! The chapters are short so you can put down and pick it up many times and never be lost. But let me tell you, it is a hard one to put down! When is the next title available SMB???
Great Writing Feb 17, 2007
I got to meet Mr. Buckler at a book signing at the Mall in Sierra Vista, AZ and he is a great person. I really enjoyed the book, meeting the author before reading the book was interesting for me because most books I read I don't get to meet the author. This book had a lot of action, it kept me glued to the pages turning one after another. I read the book in two days which is pretty fast for me. I highly recommend this book, it's a good read and well written.

Conspiracy theorists unite! You have found your Rosetta stone.
Stephen M. Buckler, in his exceedingly contemporary novel "3 Wise Men", has woven together the most notable conspiracies from the motivations behind the Soviet Union in Afghanistan to the attack on the Twin Towers. His story creates a modern era "Bayeux Tapestry" with the parts of William the Conqueror and Harold II portrayed by the lead character, Senator elect Jack Marshal and his collage partner, Terry Branch. With each plunge and rise of his literary needle he tells the story of how these two men and their rise and fall of fortune is commingled with events greater then even they understand at the time. Soon the reader is drawn to turn the page, unroll more of the images woven intricately together until they see before them the entirety of the world's plight; at least the Author's version of it.
Stephen M. Buckler (SMB) has produced a work that was slow to capture my attentions but once the picture of his linking the characters to greater events was established it was hard to put down. The well versed manner in which he defines the causal inception, course and resultant outcome of each sub political plot makes even hardened non-believers take a moment and go..."Hmmmm." For my liking I would have wished for as much time and effort in a greater development of the characters. I was left with the feeling that the story was more important than the characters created to carry it to the reader. In the end I believe I have a greater understanding of the underlying villain, Hamdan, than of the Hero, Senator Jack Marshal.
"3 Wise Men" is a story that is taken from a merely entertaining read to a conversation topic at your next social gathering where you can drop the line "...You know, I just read something that offered me a whole new perspective on the world and the events in the Middle East..." Surly a sentence that will bend ears your way with the current heightened levels of unrest seen in today's headlines. If you look to add ammunition to your war chest of random conspiracy theories, this is your book. If you believe Jerry Falwell is the single hope of the world, spend the money on a new vinyl cover for your King James Bible and save yourself the assault on your perspective of the world. If you, like me, enjoy reading for the escape and entertainment of the mind, this will keep your interest. In the end, just remember, you found it in the Fiction Section.
If you only buy one book this year, buy this one! Mar 12, 2006
As the title above says, this book should be read by everyone. It's gripping from page 1 to the final page, and at times I actually found myself holding my breath. I'm so impressed by it that I created a page on my personal website for it. Stephen M Buckler (SMB) is a master of the art of suspense, and I sincerely hope that this book will be made into a film. An e-group has been set up for discussions about "3 Wise Men" at MySpace, and I'm sure that SMB will soon be given a place 'up there' with the likes of authors such as Dan Brown.
