Book Review: Full Black by Brad Thor

Book Review: Full Black by Brad Thor

With each terrorist attack on U.S. soil, Americans gave up more of their rights. Harvath was reminded of the line, paraphrasing Benjamin Franklin, that those who trade some of their liberty for a little temporary security deserve neither and will lose both. The wisdom of the founders never ceased to amaze him.

After tracking down a deadly terrorist cell, former Seal Team 6 and current Carlton Group member, Scot Harvath formulates a plan to infiltrate the cell to stop a string of deadly attacks on American soil. After the mission goes horribly wrong, and more attacks are launched in the heart of America, Harvath must go Full Black to uncover those responsible and bring them to his brand of justice.

Thriller Thursday: Dominance by Will Lavender

Thriller Thursday: Dominance by Will Lavender

Dominance is a novel about a puzzle game about a novel. Sounds confusing, but it’s not. And it’s not just any game, it’s a deadly one. One that Harvard professor Alex Shipley will have to solve very quickly before the killer catches up to her.

Fifteen years earlier, Alex was part of a night class called Unraveling a Literary Mystery, taught by famed professor Richard Aldiss. Aldiss was teaching the class remotely from his prison cell where he was serving time for the brutal murders of two female grad students. The women were killed with an axe and their bodies decorated with the novels of reclusive author Paul Fallows. The night class’ assignment was to solve the mystery of Paul Fallows’ identity using his novels as their map. The way to follow the map was through a mysterious game called The Procedure.

Book Review: Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

Book Review: Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

I’m an avid Stephen King fan, and I can honestly say I’ve read every book he’s written. I always like Stephen King’s long stories. While they lack the satisfying caramelly-nougaty goodness of his longest novels, they are no candied popcorn, either.

This time, King explorers the human mind and takes on the conscience. Each person does or ponders something of questionable integrity, and each action is something all of us have considered at some point.

Thriller Thursday: American Assassin by Vince Flynn

Thriller Thursday: American Assassin by Vince Flynn

Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a particular affection for thrillers. And I can think of no better way to share my favorites with you than with a Thriller Thursday post!

For several years now, I’ve eagerly anticipated the release of each new book in Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series. Mitch Rapp is an All-American guy who just happens to know over a thousand different ways to kick some serious behind. And he puts his skills to good use by fiercely protecting the U.S.A. He has travelled all over the world uncovering and stopping nefarious plots that the public will never know about and he does it with brutal efficiency. Rapp is definitely the guy you want on your side when the fighting starts!

A gifted college athlete, Mitch Rapp was recruited by the CIA after his college sweetheart was killed in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. And he only wanted one thing: Retribution.
