This novel is the sequel to The Inner Circle. It can be enjoyed without reading the first book, but the reader will have a better understanding of the characters if the books are read in order. This plot revolves around Beecher and the Culper Ring who investigate a killer who is imitating the assassinations of previous U.S. presidents. It’s fast paced, enjoyable with a surprise ending.
First one murder, then two, then three. Alex Cross doesn’t yet know how many serial killers are on the loose, but he does realize that unless he solves the crimes quickly, D.C. will soon be the capital of mayhem.
This is the latest novel featuring Jack Ryan, his son “Junior”, and John Clark. This is a frighteningly realistic portrayal of the potential new threat of cyberwarfare. The novel is fast paced, exciting and worth the effort to read all 973 pages (in LP edition).
Harry Bosch, a detective in the LAPD open-unsolved unit, investigates the death of a Danish journalist occurring 20 years earlier during the LA racial riots. I really enjoyed how the author takes the reader on the case’s investigative journey. The reader gets to experience how a case unfolds from one clue to the next, and the need for a perceptive detective to understand the links. I had a hard time putting the book down.
This book is reminiscent of the DaVinci Code novel. An archaeologist, an American soldier and a Sanguinist priest seek a book written by Christ using his own blood. I enjoyed this action oriented adventure focused on the chase. It is the first of a planned series of novels.
