Two arrivals for me this week, one the old-fashioned way and one via email, both for review:
NO REMORSE by Ian Walkley
His best friend’s daughter, Sophia, has been abducted. Not an ordinary kidnap for ransom. But then, Lee McCloud is no ordinary man. Having witnessed his sister kidnapped when he was fourteen, this is McCloud’s opportunity to deliver some badly needed justice. But things don’t go as planned. Desperate to save Sophia at all costs, McCloud finds himself forced to team-up with Tally, a computer specialist in a secret organization that targets the mega-rich sponsors of terror. Tally wants nothing to do with McCloud either, but quickly they find themselves on a collision course with Sheik Khalid, an exiled Saudi whose ruthless ambitions feature a key role for Sophia. With time running out for Sophia, and their haunted pasts catching up, McCloud and Tally begin to realize where the evidence is pointing, only to find they’re trapped in an even bigger conspiracy. Hunted by enemies on both sides and conflicted by their feelings for each other, they must be willing to trade their lives to save Sophia and stop a horrific plot that will have devastating consequences for an already unstable world.
SNAP: NEW TALENT, #2 Kandesky Vampire Chronicles by Michele Drier
Ian Walkley is a local author, his debut thriller No Remorse has received great reviews and the action-packed synopsis has me intrigued.
I am not normally one for vampire novels – if I’m honest, not so long ago I thought I would never read one – but last year I read the first instalment in Michele Drier’s Kandesky Vampire Chronicles, SNAP: The World Unfolds, and I found it a fun escapist weekend read and a nice change from my regular literary fare. Variety is the spice of life after all…. Looking forward to finding out what new mayhem Maxie and the Kandesky clan get up to while running their celebrity media empire.
