Book #1 of the Dr. Scott James series
I have to say, this book was definitely fast paced and very hard to put down. I ended up not going to sleep because I couldn’t bear to put the book down and go to sleep. I had to know what was coming next.
I was intrigued about the title of the book, expecting more of a military-type novel than what it actually was. I certainly wasn’t expecting a plastic surgeon accused of murder to figure out a terrorist attack, so it was a pretty interesting read.
I longed for a bit more information on Elizabeth Keyes and on Dr. Scott James’s wife Alicia – I’d love to know what made her such a cold-hearted person toward her husband. Other than that, the characters that needed a lot of development had it, even if you didn’t get to see it right away.
All in all, the book was very well written and I can’t wait to read more of the Dr. Scott James thrillers!
I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
