Author: Felix Timothy
Genre: Suspense/Political Thriller
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 it’s 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 is 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 America’s 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.
Wow. Seriously, wow. I just finished reading this book, and now I have to take some time to put my thoughts together.
I’ll start by saying that this book was amazing. If TV runs out of good scripts for television shows (sometimes I think they already have), they should aquire this one. It would mek a great supsense series. As a book, it gives a mix of riveting action, original main characters, and a complicated plot. The descriptions are so clear often it read like a TV show, and I could clearly picture the characters and scenes come to life.
Trey’s wife gets murdered, and he’s the number one suspect of what FBI detective Brett thinks is a simple case. That is, until he finds out Trey’s ex-girlfriend, who had a car accident and was brought to the hospital, mysteriously disappeared from the hospital. On top of that, Trey’s lawyer gets murdered as well.
The uncomplicated case becomes complicated as Brett becomes a wanted man in two other murder cases. On the run as well, he and Trey have to combine their knowledge and know-how if they want to get out of this ordeal alive.
In the middle of all this, is Ionshaker, a nuclear device that could devastate the entire world.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read an indie book that offers so much. The writing was great, the plot left me breathless, and the characters pulled me in. This is a riveting, fascinating story that will leave you at the edge of your seat.
