Synopsis:

Zero Slade is not a bad guy—he merely plays one when saving children’s lives.

During his seven years on a team fighting child sex trafficking, Zero’s become quite good at schmoozing with pimps, getting handcuffed by cops and pretending not to care about the Lost Girls he liberates. But the dangerous sting operations are starting to take their toll on his marriage and sanity. His affinity for prescription painkillers isn’t exactly helping matters.

When the youngest girl the team has ever rescued gets abducted from a safe house in Cambodia, Zero decides to risk everything to find her. His only shot is to go rogue—and sink deeper into the bowels of the trafficking world than he’s ever sunk.

It’s the biggest mission of his life. Trouble is, it’s almost certain death.

“A truly original and enthralling novel. Levin’s blazing prose and acerbic wit capture the madness—and the humanity—of working undercover in the darkest corners.”
Radd Berrett, former Jump Team member, Operation Underground Railroad

Can a psychologist, still grieving the loss of her husband, save a traumatized war veteran who is planning his own death? Stories Untold explores the devastation of loss, the struggle to find meaning in life, and the enduring power of love that transcends boundaries between past and future.

They’re both strong and fearless, determined, relentless.
He’s a decorated war veteran and he wants to die.
She’s a prominent psychologist and she won’t give up on him.

When a suicidal client seeks her help, Dr. Angela Blackwell cannot turn him away, despite the fact that he isn’t seeking the kind of help she normally provides her clients. The man, who won’t fully identify himself, wants the distinguished psychologist to stand witness after his planned death in six months’ time, ensuring his wife will not be charged as an accessory or be hindered from collecting the death benefit he carefully provisioned for her. He calls himself DJ and won’t willingly share anything about his past.

As Dr. Blackwell is struggling to reconstruct her own life after the loss of her husband, she recognizes his unusual request as a subconscious cry for help and embarks on a relentless effort to guide the reluctant stranger in uncovering the trauma that has permanently altered the course of his existence. Playing a deck of cards stacked high against her and rushing against time, she has no other option but to intervene, pushing the ethical boundaries of the doctor-client relationship and refusing to give up.

An astonishing, vibrant story of human strength and frailty, of love lost and love found, the Stories Untold saga will captivate as few stories ever do, with unexpected twists and turns, leaving a lasting memory ingrained into the essence of the reader’s being.

Book Review: The Steps


51i6kp0cl2l

Buy “The Steps

The Steps by Iveta Redliha is a thriller story. I have not read anything by a Latvian author before but I have read a few Russian novels and enjoyed them similarly.

The way that Redliha weaves together the story of several interlocking lives is masterful. I began to figure out the secrets each life held, but not entirely until the end, and even then there was a major part I could not have guessed. The characters are complex and interesting and there are no holes in the plot that I could see.

Essentially, the story is of a young free spirited woman who contracts to be a surrogate mother for a childless couple, to earn money to change her life. Whether you’ll take the side of Leonora, Kurt, Nelly, or Greta is up to you. All display an unsavory side each in their own way. It’s exciting to enjoy their escapades vicariously in this story of what can happen when things don’t go as planned.

Book Review: Family Illusions


Buy Family Illusions now

Family Illusions is a thriller romance by Bess George about a young woman who finds out many mysterious things about her past, her mother, and her family. After her mother died she was forced to work at whatever jobs she could find to support herself, and she lived with her best friend Jasmine who did the same.  A chance meeting with a handsome man brought about a great change in her life and even put her in danger of losing her life. Charlie, as she was called, didn’t think that she was romantically attractive because she was a larger woman. She made frequent comments that men only looked at her when she was with her thin and attractive friend Jasmine. In reality, before the adventure was over two men were both interested in her. This sent a nice message to voluptuous or full-featured women that they too can be desirable.

Family Illusions contains some racy content but more in the sense of thoughts and words rather than actions. It was an interesting read with lots of twists and suspense and I enjoyed it.

Book Review: The Ego Cluster

Ethan is having a bad day. His girlfriend has moved out to be with someone else and his job is not working out. The Ego Cluster is a thrill packed conspiracy novel like no other, and it’s set in breath-takingly beautiful Australia. Ethan and Amelia are research scientists who are looking for a behavior altering genetic makeover. Just on the verge of discovering a world changing serum, they are told to work on a different project instead. A series of inexplicable circumstances occurs leaving them fearing for their lives.

Robert Cole has developed likeable main characters who fight hard for their cause, and equally bad guys who stop at nothing to prevent it. If you liked The Firm you’ll love The Ego Cluster.

I received The Ego Cluster in exchange for my honest review.

Book Review: Eyewitness


Eyewitness

Buy Eyewitness

Eyewitness by Christian author Eugene M. Koon is a departure from the typical thriller story. A newsroom jumps to life with the news of hostages and gunmen at the local bus station. They send a crew to the scene and the worst happens; there are grave injuries of the news crew, and then one of them is even taken hostage along with the daughter of yet another staff member. God is at work calling the shots as the devil begs for leniency, his minions attempt to gather souls to their side, and hostages are switched out. Watch how God’s purpose is served even when the situation appears to be a lost cause.

Especially intriguing to me was the conversation and appearance of angels behind the scenes, and the observed answers to prayer.  Koon makes the spirit world come to life with realistic dialogue and convincing scenarios. I look forward to reading more by this author.

Book Review: The Goldfinch


Goldfinch

Buy “The Goldfinch”

The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt, is one of the best books I have ever read. I immediately liked young Theo, the main character, who lives with his mother, who is taking him to the MOMA to kill time before an important meeting at his school to discuss his recent suspension on unfair grounds. He loves the museum and the art, but that day his attention is caught by a young girl about his own age, with a man Theo supposes is her grandfather. Unbelievably, his mother leaves him momentarily to run to the gift shop while he continues to look at the art, and at that moment a bomb goes off, killing several people and gravely wounding others. The girl’s grandfather is one of those who die on the scene, but before he dies, he and Theo have an exchange which will determine the course of the rest of Theo’s life. Chaos then ensues and he does not know whether his mother is dead or alive. He pesters the rescue personnel and they cannot give him any information. Eventually, he walks home, and it is a few days before he is told his mother has been confirmed dead. This begins his life of being shuffled to different caretakers. Without giving away the plot twists, Theo always manages to land on his feet despite suffering from depression stemming from his mother’s untimely death and also that of some close friends.

Donna Tartt is a masterful storyteller, making the unbelievable events of The Goldfinch believable. You honestly cannot guess the ending from the beginning, and it’s an entertaining tale, suitable for a long snowed-in weekend curled up on the sofa. I also found it interesting to learn about how various pieces of antique furniture can be faked and how valuable artworks can be used as collateral in drug deals, something I had never realized was being done. I would rate this book a 5, and there are some scenes regarding disturbing topics but they are not graphically portrayed. I especially enjoy Theo’s reflections on life and art and the human condition.
