What seems like a fantastic birthday present -- a trip in a hot air balloon with her wimp of a boyfriend -- turns into a nightmare when bullets start ripping through their airborne chariot. What had they done to deserve this unscheduled event? Incredibly, they had witnessed nefarious deeds -- murder? torture? gang rape? -- taking place within a leafy garden in England's green and pleasant land. Was that a knife glinting in the sun? Erica's boyfriend Paul is busy with his camera.
Well, whatever is going off, someone is not pleased to have witnesses. From the death of their balloon pilot to the end of the book, murder, torture, mayhem follows Erica around like a whiff of bizarre perfume as she is chased through air, and across land and water -- in ever increasing danger of meeting a horrible death. But her feisty spirit never flags. She trusts no one, and, so it appears, rightly so. Her ingenuity and courage are beyond measure. Often stirred but rarely shaken, she battles to escape both evil men and wild waves to make her way to freedom and so expose the murderous gang after her blood.
Who can she turn to? Unfortunately, those who help her tend to come to a sticky-bloody end. But who is this gangster who saves her life and gets under her skin? What is he really after? Apart from sensuous sex, that is. Many questions, from beginning to end, keep the reader anxious to know the answers. A good dusting of erotica along the way alleviates some of the chilling horror scenes. Mix with suspense, intrigue, humour, and full-blooded characterization, and you have HOT AIR!
We read most of the Thrillers by top authors, Geoff Nelder's Hot Air ranks easily among them.
One thing that is very important to me in reading fiction is whether I care about the main characters and what happens to them. Hot Air passes this test easily -- Erica is a most engaging character, and her succession of odd adventures keeps the reader (a) wondering what the heck will happen next, and (b) hoping for the best for Erica.
If you love the English language, and occasional wordplay, and nuances of meaning and expression, Mr. Nelder is the author for you. If those aren't particularly important to you, then just enjoy Hot Air as a fine, well-done novel.
