Action filled thriller that you can’t put down!55

Engrossing5 star

A well thought out plot that keeps you guessing. Strongly recommended.55



This was a bit slow all along with lots of jargon and religious attitude! Not my scene. Not a repeat performance either.45

Really good and well executed4 star

This pains me. The story is really good and well executed but it suffers from lack of fact checking and proofreading to earn a 5 star review. That said, if you're not a detail fanatic, you'll probably like it. It does create some heart-pounding tension. I received this book from eBook Discovery. This is my honest review, which I voluntarily post here.45

Keys hits it out of the park.5 star

Pulse-pounding international thriller that never lets up. Vivid descriptions put you in the center of the action, and the internal dialogue in the deepest parts of the characters' thoughts and feelings. My favorite part: Keys really hits on how lemming-like the masses can be, and how quickly public opinion can be molded. Well done! I received this book from eBook Discovery. This is my honest review.55

Exciting and terrifying at the same time. Reality-based and hopefully it will never come to fruition. I love this author, he never fails to entertain! Extremely well-written.55
