Tremendous first effort. It is hard to believe that Falbey is not a veteran of the literary business. Unlike many writers of Thriller genre, Falbey develops six distinct and unique characters and personalities that despite their diversity work together on the execution of a not to implausible situation.
What an exciting, thrilling ride it will be. Falbey develops his characters with care, has them interact realistically, and builds suspense from the get-go. While the book reads well throughout, the last several chapters kept me up long after my flight had landed.
John's book made me feel like I stepped into a CSI episode with Tom Clancy as the director.

One thing you can be sure of is that A LOT of research has been put into the book. Are the theories plausible? I don't know, I haven't checked. But his writing style and presentation makes you confident that they are bound to happen at some point or another. Or have they happened already?
The ending comes as a surprise and I'm assuming will be further developed in the next part of the trilogy. Still, if you would like a non-series book, I think this book can stand by itself as well.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, to anyone who like action / adventure.
Offensive content?: R, language and adult themes.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.
As an aside, I have been to many of the locations Falbey uses and his descriptions are so realistic. While I never saw the characters he describes at any of the sites, Falbey clearly did his homework. Next time I go to any of these locations, you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll keep my eyes more wide open and won't turn my back--even for an instant.
