"An insightful and masterful diagnostic of the world we live in.
This novel is a pleasant surprise for me-
This is a very contemporary story of profound immorality permeating social and political structures at the expense of basic ethical and above all Human values: worth striving for, making our existence meaningful. Corporate power reducing the space of citizens to the criminal level. I am pleased how author used Rwanda and The President story /author's real life experience, as a Lawyer/- building subtle cohesion with current events."

"Canadian Christopher Black has chosen to tell a series of interrelated narratives from the all-seeing perspective of the omnipresent third person and this works better than the first person – which is more traditional for the genre -- given the multitude of hard-boiled but very knowledgeable and sometimes sensitive main characters who accompany, support and sometimes double-cross Johnny Eiger on his dark journey. Their dialogue is fast-paced, wide-ranging and understates the yawning danger that confronts them.
In addition to being a writer, essayist and poet, Christopher black is an international criminal lawyer whose experience closely resembles that of Johnny Eiger. If Beneath the Clouds is his way of suggesting that our institutions are not all that they seem to be, then we, as proud Canadians who see our Western traditions as glorious and free, should be profoundly troubled."

"Christopher Black is undoubtedly drawing from his own experiences as a lawyer when he wrote this book. The realism of the storyline and the characters, makes this second to no other crime thriller I’ve ever read before. It is a captivating read that will either reinvigorate or galvanize your faith in humanity.
Needless to say, I highly recommend it!"
~ James Cook
"A great page turner read of how forces in today’s world are really at work if you try taking them on. The author ,from the life he has known ,has truly experienced such similar events so to make them seem very real . A great exciting read for those who wonder what is happening under the surface to make the history making of today’s events when protection of the official line has become the paramount task"
