David Chance was not born with an extra sense. He admittedly would be the last person to possess it. When he began receiving messages, he thought he was having serious mental problems. But when their warnings began happening as stated, he became driven to follow each lead with the hopes he could prevent the first message from happening: the assassination of the President of the United States.
Having the secrets of intrigue dropped on him planted him and his family into harm's way. When the messages began leading him closer to home, he had to sort and balance where he put his trust. Who could best protect his family while he is bearing down on the perpetrators? Were those he shared his messages with truly the ones he could trust? And, of course, will he be able to navigate through it all in time to save the President before he got himself killed?
Hileman expertly kept the tension through the last chapter. Very good read.
This book just tried to do too much. Hectic twists and jerks in the storyline doesn't make a book into a thriller. I would suggest the author ask too question in future books, (1) does that actually seem logical?, and (2) would this character really do/say that? In this book, there were far too many times that I said no to both. Be consistent. This book was just too jerky and unrealistic to take seriously. (My apologies to the author - sorry for the negative comments.)
Hileman's characters are fully developed, as are time and place, he doesn't spend too much time going over the same thing again and again, moving scenes along at a nice brisk pace. I couldn't find any issues with the plot, subplot or characters. Hileman has created a niche in an already narrow paranormal mystery niche market, kudos to him. He knows how to write, obviously has editors/proofreaders/cover artists and so forth, which all work together to create this easy read. That is no small feat.
I easily give 4 1/2 stars to Messages.
What could have been interesting became sickening, and I erased the book from my Kindle. The story might have improved, but I wasn't going to hang around waiting for it to happen.
