“Acts Beyond Redemption” is a five-star thriller that intertwines international drug deals, the United States government, a conspiracy that involves a horse competition in Afghanistan with catastrophic consequences, highly trained para-military undercover spies, the FBI, the CIA and a rogue group of government trained outcasts. It is a shrewd, masterpiece thriller written at a breath-taking pace and near genius in its plot.
The main character, Sheila Harrington, is a woman to die for. Her beauty, her cunning, her willingness to do things other women won’t are her arsenal for completing her missions. Is she working for the CIA? The FBI? Is she the serial killer the whole nation is looking for? What does she know, and who is she working for? These are the questions driving this story at high speed. Sheila Harrington’s beauty and talents lure powerful men at the highest levels of government, and seduce even the most hardened and dangerous men to get what she wants. Her power over the unwitting and unknowing draw them into her world of sex, bondage, betrayal and kill-or-be-killed survival. S. Burke creates such a beautiful—and dangerous—woman in Sheila Harrington, that I found myself wishing to be one of her “targets”.
Not for the faint of heart; so be prepared. When you sit down to read “Acts Beyond Redemption” you better have an extra cushion under your rump. The pace and the plot have you sitting on the edge of your chair. And just when you don’t expect it; wam! you are knocked to the floor—so you better have a cushion on the floor as well.
I can’t wait for Book Two (as promised at the end of Book One). I already have my cushions ready.
You will enjoy the covert operation scenes written with such credible believability in this thriller. The expertise adds to your feeling that you are inside the story and truly part of it. Perhaps S. Burke has a secret life other than just being an author!
She handles the characters in such an authentic way that you really want to know some of them better in real life. You find yourself identifying with them. Her character Sheila is quite memorable, but this woman is one you probably will not want to get to know better.She is a seriously scary person. Be warned-keep your distance from that woman. There are moments when you can almost admire this character’s cunning and ability to fool so many experts and prominent men of the world, but then her cruelty and inhumanity make you cringe. For a book however, she is an exciting character. Be prepared, as she will evoke a variety of emotions from you as you read.
Burke weaves a web of facts and lies to tease and seduce you until you are obsessed with rushing forward to discover the answers. Reading while offering you more insight into the amazing mind of Burke makes you even less sure of your deductions as to the conclusion of this mystery. She leaves you guessing right up until the end. Good thing there is a sequel. In several days look for the release of Acts of Betrayal at Amazon. Getting anxious to grab a copy of my own and continue this frightening but addictive journey.
They create an army of saboteurs and use it to cause mayhem on selected targets. Sheila, a masochist was the ace in the hands of these secret cartel. Young, beautiful, rich, and cold as a fish! Intelligent too, but I would say more cunning than intelligent. It is not intelligence when she always knows ahead of time what is happening, which allows her time to craft her reactions.
My question, though, is, why the author on two occasions described the power of the cartel as above that of God, or why Craig did not suspect Nigel when Nigel assured him he would get the CD from Sheila. Halliday remained an enigma until the end. The part that stumped me was when Nigel announced that Sheila has been cleared of all suspicion. That was the cliff hanger! And I am sure it is because the story continues.
A very well written story indeed, and a page turner. I recommend it!
