Jamie Strachen is visiting Scotland for the funeral of his brother in law Bob Ferguson whose death seemed a tragic accident but what was the meaning of Bob’s final words for Jamie and was his death more sinister than it seemed.
On Tyneside, Detective Chief Superintendant Clive Patterson is called to attend an incident on a passenger ferry from Amsterdam, but it is a different passenger on the ferry that catches his attention.
When another near fatal accident happens to Jamie and his nephew Nick, Jamie begins to wonder if it is just coincidental or is there a more sinister explanation for what is happening.
What is the connection between all these events? Who is the mastermind behind them and can a plan with devastating results against humanity be thwarted?
So, we begin a thriller with an amalgam of fascinating characters, both good and evil, plot twists, murder, kidnapping, heart in the mouth moments and multiple storylines that all come together to bring this thriller to an exciting conclusion.
The Strontian Factor is compulsive reading and once started is hard to put down.
I loved this novel and would highly recommend it. Another great novel from author, Mason Forbes.
I found our protagonist, Jamie Strachon to be a very dynamic and fully developed character the readers can appreciate for his talents and liked for his charisma. The language is sophisticated, but it keeps moving at a rapid pace - keeping along with the high-stakes nature of the storyline. There were several climactic moments where I felt like I needed to get through reading before I put the book down - but that only lead me to another high point. Settings and emotions were expressed vividly by the author, lending to his expertise as a meticulous writer who never neglects the details. I enjoyed every page of this novel - especially the unexpected turn of events toward the end of the book. The Strontian Factor is definitely a hit and does not disappoint!
The gritty and rousing atmosphere of the story is often juxtaposed with thoughtful character sketches that compel us to either love, hate, or fear the well-developed personalities that leap off the pages. In addition to his unrivaled character development, Forbes deftly crafts a taut thriller that overlaps with an obsessive mystery to create an unparalleled intensity of emotion.
This is the first book I've read by Mason Forbes, but I guarantee it will not be the last.
