I am going to do something new with my blog, and I am going to have #WriterReviewWednsday as a way of paying homage to my favorite indie and traditionally published authors. I will be posting it to Goodreads, Amazon, and this blog as well as my #ReviewsforWriters blog.
*I did receive and ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
The first one is going to be on Ionshaker Desparate by Felix Timothy.
Here is my review:
5 out of 5
I enjoyed the book especially since it was a believable thriller that made me want to read more and more to find out what happens next. I loved the fact that it was in multiple viewpoints, and you can see the overall events unfold in the story. There are car chases, and people getting framed left and right all because of a program the FBI invented.
The many twists thrown in were pretty clever, and the dialogue was realistic and funny between the detective and his partner. I loved the manhunt going on since the guy the detectives were hunting is really smart in evading the FBI. As you get more involved in the world you start to see the bigger picture, and why the characters do the things they do.
I had fun reading the novel because of the intricate character relationships involved, and it made me want to read thrillers more too since this is the first thriller I have read all the way through. I loved the cliffhanger at the end, and I look forward to seeing more of Felix Timothy’s work. I cannot wait for the next book.
And it is free today from Amazon:
Here is the description, and the link:
Trey’s wife, his wife’s shrink and his attorney are shot dead. His ex-girlfriend narrowly escapes death, gets admitted in ICU in critical condition, but mysteriously disappears from the hospital just a few hours after being admitted. The four of them are connected to Trey.
Brett (the lead FBI detective) pursues Trey (now the sole murder suspect), finds himself framed for two new other murders, becomes a wanted man and starts running like Trey, after learning that its not Trey but Al Fakir (an Al Qaeda splinter group) that is killing anyone with the knowledge that Al Fakir has stolen Ionshaker (a cutting edge universal nuclear management device).
Al Fakir’s intention with Ionshaker are not very clear but it is obvious that the country that possesses Ionshaker possesses all world nuclear power on its finger tips because the device can control any nuke on earth. It is suspected that either Iran, Germany, China, Russia or Pakistan could be behind Ionshaker’s disappearance and in the event that Ionshaker actually leaves American soil, then the U.S automatically loses its dominance, security and stability. Worse still, if Al Fakir’s imagination is to detonate American nukes, then their best imagination will be Americas worst nightmare.
In response, the President sanctions a covert mission led by the only two people that can stop Al Fakir: Trey (an ex CIA) and Brett (now ex FBI) to repossess Ionshaker from Al Fakir before the device leaves the country. Before things get better, they will first get worse as people will die, scandals will be exposed, and America will be desperate. The mission is called Ionshaker Desperate.
