The author clearly has a strong grasp on modern military matters. The story of a wounded warrior's return home is one that has always seemed to strike a chord in many, especially these days. The book explores Alton's feelings of inadequacy and frustration stemming from his injury.
The story does have some issues with pacing. There were moments in which too much emphasis was placed on story elements that didn't commensurately contribute to the plot. Moreover, stretches of the book go on for a bit too long, making it feel a little tedious at times.
All told though, it's a good read.
But the real strength of the story, to me, lies with the characters. Alton Blackwell, the Army Communications Captain whose life is changed after an explosion shatters his leg, is someone I related to immediately. His physical damage is matched by his psychological damage, and I was rooting for him every step of the way as he attempted to navigate through circumstances he never thought he would have to face. Along the way he meets Lieutenant Mallory Wilson and together they uncover a dangerous conspiracy while at the same time developing a strong personal bond. It is this bond that is the most engaging aspect of the novel, and with the promise of a series arising from Nefarious, it is a bond I hope will continue to develop. I will certainly be reading.
I really enjoyed this one.
Perkins had a wild youth as his mother pursued partying with abandon. Now as adult he squandered his income in similar hedonistic pursuits.
Colonel Drake, in an effort to prevent terrorists escaping their stronghold during the war in Afghanistan just prior to a drone attack, made a tactical mistake in sending in his troops to attack just before the drone attack was due to commence. Several soldiers died. He hid his mistake by blaming a senior. Now he is again hiding the weaponization of a cure for rabies.
Then people start dying and it is up to Alton, the cryptoligist and Mallory, the FBI agent, to combine their talents to uncover a web of conspiracy.
I quite enjoyed this suspense thriller. Happily I also have the next in the series to hand and can continue reading of the exploits of Alton and Mallory.
