“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.
Reading went very smooth with no errors that I could remember. And the ending left you wanting more and wanting answers. I couldn't put the book down. That’s the way a good book should grab you. I give the author 5 stars for writing a story worth reading.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to enjoy a story and be challenged to try and stay ahead of the plot developments.
Thriller, suspense, FBI procedural, political intrigue, dark crime story—this book weaves threads of each into its plot. The characters are composed of an FBI task force assigned to bring down a psychotic killer and the killer herself. Although the book drops you smack into the action and rarely lets up, character development is given equal attention. The crimes are heinous and the psychological elements cleverly done.
Were it not for the head-hopping that takes place throughout the book (and some wonky formatting), I would probably rate this 5 stars. The POV issues may not distract other readers, but I’m stickler as a shift usually throws me out of a scene. That aside, ACTS BEYOND OF REDEMPTION is an adrenaline-charged and carefully-plotted thriller. I look forward to reading the remaining books in the series.
