Blown Circuit ....A Book Review

Blown Circuit

       A Book Review            


I have to start this review out with an apology, I know I know, your asking your self ~ what and why? The reason being is because it's late. Due to power outages and some sick kiddos I didn't get this posted as promised and that's just rude.  So I am very sorry this is being posted so late.

 Here is what I started seeing about this book before I even got the book to read....

 The Cold War brought the world to the brink of nuclear Armageddon. 
But it was also responsible for the development of a different kind of weapon.
The new device was stealthy, instantaneous, and absolutely devastating.
Fortunately, it was also lost. 
Until Now...
Michael Chase survived China. Barely. But now he has bigger problems. A pair of coordinates broadcast on an encrypted frequency have brought him to Istanbul where his father has left a message for him. Michael's mission is to find a device so immensely powerful that if it isn't located quickly, the global balance of power will shift forever. 
But nothing is easy and now Michael has enemies. He doesn't only need to find the device. He needs to find it before the Green Dragon Group hunts him down.
Michael and the Dragons aren't the only ones searching. Meryem Demir is a Turkish Intelligence Agent. She didn't ask for the assignment, and she certainly didn't ask to be paired with Michael, but choice is a luxury Meryem doesn't have. 
Together, Meryem and Michael form an uneasy alliance taking them from the crowded bazaars of Istanbul all the way to the lonely shores of the Southern Mediterranean in search of the lost device. Of course finding the missing weapon is only half the battle. Preventing its use is the real struggle and when an old acquaintance enters the fray, Michael must decide who to put his faith in -- his newfound partner or a dangerous ghost from the past?
If Michael chooses poorly, the weapon will be activated and millions of innocent lives will be wiped out in seconds. And if he chooses wisely, he may never see his father again.

    So you can see why I was excited to read it before I ever even got it!

    I love a book that won't give away the plot in the first 3 pages. Since I have not yet gotten the chance to read the first one I have to tell you that this one stands on it own very well, I have heard that it picks up right where the first one left off, in the story Michael explained some crucial aspects and points from the last book, things like what happened to him, how he got to Istanbul, and what happened to his father I plan on getting my hands on the first book and reading it very soon!

  This book has Michael Chase starting out in Istanbul, Turkey where things turn in the poo right from the start.  Nothing is what it seems, who can he trust? Does he really know who is true enemy is? Michael is the new guy in the CIA  and  when his dad disappears and is believed to have been abducted, he is the perfect person to track him down. It's not so simple though....

   Deciphering codes, hidden clues... these are the things he must do, find, go through in order to find his father. But not so fast... or easy, there are attempted murders, explosions, betrayal. Sound awesome yet ( psst it's because it is!)? The story continues on and Michael must find a destructive device that has been missing for 60 years, and must do so before a group of terrorists gets to it first. Can he do it? Who can he trust with it when and if he does get it? There are many twist and turns to this book that I didn't see coming, The ending shocked me ( which honestly doesn't happen very often!) If you would love a thrill ride this is the book to read! I hope that the story goes on and that I get the honor of reading it, regardless for a review or not! I just wanna read it!! HAHA

    I found myself very pulled in by this book from the moment I started reading it, I didn't want to have to put it down. I found it very irritating that at moments I would have to stop reading to go and be an adult and do Mommy things! I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. I promise you that this is a smooth and easy read. It wasn't hard to keep up with the story, which after dealing with kids and the house is a welcomed thing here! I am honored to of been able to do this review. 
Mr. Lars Guignard has a new fan in me!
