Last Breath

Three days. Three shootings. By a sniper. And if the pattern continues, Washington DC is next. A Washington DC that is engulfed by riots and has a school shooting just hours after Sam Archer arrives in the city. He’s there to visit his niece on her birthday, but that’s only his cover. He’s there to stop the sniper and quickly tracks him down. The sniper was an old colleague. But things aren’t what they seem and Archer is soon confronted by something much bigger than a sniper. And much more dangerous. <!–more Continue reading my review of Last Breath–>

Last Breath is the eighth book in the Sam Archer series. The scene is quickly set and the relentless action gets underway. If fast-paced action thrillers are your thing, this book is an essential and enjoyable read. It’s been the best action thriller I’ve read this year.

D-Boys

An American system has been hacked into and Mike Brown, a computer expert, joins a SWAT team on a regulation mission to apprehend the culprits. Moments later, he’s the only man left standing. They’ve stumbled upon something bigger and Brown is soon assigned to the D-Boys, an elite unit that is unknown outside of those who need to know. Brown joins them on missions around the world, but it seems as though an online game is the key. Terrorists are able to communicate in secret and practice against targets. Power cuts in America are followed by chemical attacks. When it appears as though things can’t get any worse, it is discovered that in the game missions have been undertaken against a nuclear weapon storage facility. This was only a rehearsal and in real life, the facility is stormed and there’s a nuclear weapon on the loose with the West Coast of America the target…

D-Boys is an excellent thriller that moves along at a fast pace throughout. With the online game as well, it can almost be described as a thriller within a thriller. The action is frequent throughout and takes place at a frenetic pace. It’s well worth a read.
