A high school English teacher without a clue inadvertently picks up a piece of paper while walking. On it is written a cryptic web address and odd login credentials. Curious?
Or cautious? Which would you be?
A couple is murdered in their home; a home located a few yards away from where the note is found. Connected? Or not? How could he know? Ninety-nine times out of a hundred, it would not have mattered.
But now, suddenly it does matter; and as the cliché says “curiosity killed the cat”- or curious English teachers.
Told in the first person, the main character finds himself at the mercy of unknown antagonists seeking to kill him. Through flashbacks, readers know our hero has an unhappy family past; the operative question being how is his past germane to the current story? The author is gifted at telling two seemingly unrelated parallel stories and kneading them together when appropriate. A reader may begin the suspect the perpetrator, but may not suspect the whole story until it is revealed at the end. Throughout, the main characters are sufficiently developed to fulfill their roles in a believable manner. In the case of the main characters, readers can easily empathize with their circumstances.
Assassin’s Web is teeth-gnashing entertainment from a writer of fine suspense novels and will take its place among his best. It should be enjoyed by any reader of suspense, thriller, police action, murder mystery, or other adventure novels.
Going to the police (with only a partial story) brings the police back with a warrant for the search of Alex’s house and confiscation of his computer.
Top news story tells the hunt for Alex is on, but is he the perpetrator or will he become the next victim in a series of murders? Tension builds as the action of each day is accounted for interspersed with memories from 25 years earlier watching his younger sister being abducted.
With well defined characters, believable tense situations and a great twist ending this book certainly earned all 5 stars.
Alex Parrott was almost a witness to a terrible crime. He was also almost a murder statistic.
On one of his walks, he finds a scrap piece of paper. Not until later does he unfold it. The paper shows a website, as well as user name and password.
Giving into temptation, he enters the information and finds a site that deals in contract killing...an assassin web.
Now someone wants him dead . And they're willing to do whatever it takes to eliminate him. Six people have been murdered in this quest. The police have him branded as a pervert and as a prime suspect in the grisly series of murders. His family has been destroyed. He's running for his life.
Unsure of who to trust ... if anyone .... how does he stay alive long enough to uncover the truth and clear his name?
This thriller grabs from the very first page and retains the suspense until the explosive, unpredictable ending. The action moves at a pace guaranteed that the reader will not want to stop reading. The characters are outstanding and the story premise is excellent.
Curiosity killed the cat, and it was one such fated day when Alex decided to be curious on one of his walks where he found a piece of paper with a website, user name, and a password. Giving in to the temptation, he entered the Dark Web and realized the site was for contract killing. An assassin web, and he was caught when someone followed his digital footsteps. The hit men soon chased him, the cops branded him as a pervert and murderer, involved in 6 murders, too were hunting him down. His family was destroyed. How would he get out?
My first book by author Richard T. Burke and it was mind blowing. A thrill a minute. The author's writing cast a web around and left a trail of crumbs for me to follow deeper into the tangled mesh where I knew resisting was of no use. I just had to follow the story till the last page. I was too caught up in the intriguing narration.
The book did not allow the main character to rest too. He was walking, running, limping, hopping, and at one point, traveling in the bumper of the car to stay one step ahead of the killers. But all was not lost. The author added a good Samaritan to the team, an assassin turned protector, who helped to save Alex's life. The book took some deep twists and turns and there were times I was barely holding on.
The writing was fluid, with a atmospheric feel of a race against time. Short snappy chapters made the pages fly. What a rush!!

The ending was good - everything explained, no loose ends. Recommended.
The tensions builds making it a real page-turner and I didn't see the twist. 5/5
