This review refers to "Catch" by Sean J. Quirk - kindle edition.

If you love action, adventure, shoot-outs with hi-tech weapons, a bit of sci-fi, heroes to cheer for and villains so evil you want to wring their necks, check out "Catch". Author Sean J Quirk gives you only a few pages to keep your heart rate normal and then Bam!- your heart starts pounding and it doesn't quit until nearly the end.

Catch Harris is a man with a past that has a hold of him and won't let him go. He has a guilt complex so bad that he has sentenced himself to a life of seclusion. He wants to be alone and be left alone. So when a waitress tries to strike up a friendship with him, he turns up the rudeness level to keep her at bay. Hallie Baker won't have any of it and when she persists he stalks out of the restaurant in a huff.He seems as cold as the wind and snow he stomps out into. But like his two different colored eyes, there are two sides to Catch Harris.

His guilt gets to him and he turns around to go back and apologize. She is already gone. Back outside again, he witnesses this very same girl being dragged off by some very menacing looking men. After a short debate with himself he knows he must go after her and try to save her from what looks to be a very dangerous situation.

And so the action begins. There are many tense moments, car chases, explosive situations and a complex web of villains that seem to have all of the most not only up-to-date gadgetry, but some very futuristic equipment as well. It's spy vs. spy stuff, with Catch and Hallie caught in the middle. But Catch is not an easy mark, he is after all and ex-Delta Force operative and has a few toys of his own, not to mention his steely nerves.

I enjoyed this book and it definitely shied away from the idea I had in my mind when I first started it. I felt it was a good debut book though I do have some comments about it. I plan on reading the next book that is going to splinter off from this one and I am seriously looking forward to the young adult/ childrens book that is described on his author page. Insert little *squeee* here because I really love the description!!

On to my thoughts -
The book description only vaguely hints at the type of book this is going to be. I still have a hard time categorizing it. I guess I consider it a fast paced, action, mystery, not quite thriller, with touches of military, government and science fiction thrown into the mix?

The pros for me:
* I really liked the characters Catch and Hallie. The character building for Hallie was not as strong as Catch but hey she's not the main now is she?
* I liked the way the back story building took place in the second half of the book, this helped me get into the book - so for me this was well placed. If it would have come in the beginning portion of the book it would have been too much too soon for me.
* The action jumps right in shortly after the first few pages and sucked me right in.
* There was one part that really pulled on my heartstrings and I found myself just as upset about it as Hallie, the supporting character.
* I loved it that the character was ex-military and it captured really well how ex-military folks often times have a hard time adjusting to civilian life.

My cons:
* The first 15% of the book had much more descriptive prose than I normally like. I also felt in that portion there was an overuse of simile. This distracted me and aggravated me at times.

Fast passed thriller, which starts well. Generally well written, but the Kindle copy needs another edit. Keeps one entertained, though, the science fiction appearing at halftime disturbs the rhythm. I think the book would have benefited from a prologue that gave some background, and hopefully plausibility to the "power ball" idea. Sean is a writer with real potential who may do better by breaking away from the clichéd James Patterson style.
The book is a good airport read, so just about gets my fourth star for a début, but I would be very surprised if there isn't much better to come.

Catchy thing is this Catch book :)
I'm reading this "Catch" book and enjoying it mostly, however I'd like to point out some inaccuracies. Nikita is not a girl's name, but on the contrary it's a boy's name! And what about Peter Aleksei Federov? Russian names don't sound like this. It has to be Peter or even Pyotr Alekseevitch Fedorov. There's a misprint(?) in the family name Federov - it must be Fedorov. The name Emil is not common for Russians, it's mostly used by Jews or Tartar. A bunch of "inaccuracies" make the book itself not very realistic. I suppose the author needs someone to look through his future works on "Russian theme" badly, if there any. I mean some native-speaking insider. Just one more thing to say. You won't believe, but most of our people change their underwear on a regular basis and know good enough how to use soap and toothbrush, either they're miners or janitors. And I can't let the author go away with this: we drink vodka from small glasses (yeah, yeah, even those miners and janitors, who misuse alcohol), not from the bottles! :)
Best regards from Russia.
