Silent Waters is filled with action, as the protagonists onboard the sub have their hands full battling the hijackers against formidable odds. And when the story shifts to land, the action doesn’t stop; it simply transitions to car chases and gunfights. What you won’t find in this book, however, is much suspense. It’s fairly clear to the reader what’s happening, almost to the point of wondering why the NCIS investigators don’t see it. But then, few would want to entertain this possibility in real life without some pretty overwhelming evidence.
There is one backstory romance and a second possibility, adding a bit of a respite from the action. It also helps to develop the characters, making each of the four principals a bit more real – a detail that doesn’t get covered in every thriller.
So, if you’re seeking intense suspense and clever twists as part of your military thriller, this is probably not your book. But if you like action-filled stories with a touch of romance, and especially if you enjoy sub stories as I do, Silent Waters is a recommended read.
This is really a two-part story. The first half concerns the hijacking of a fast attack sub by mercenaries, the second is about what happens after those hijackers are defeated. Both parts were well told but the second one was the more exciting half of the book, in my opinion.
I do have one minor and one big quibble here, however. The minor one is that while there was a resolution to the story line, it wasn’t the complete resolution I would have preferred. The big one is that over 10% of this e-book was excerpts from other books by the same author. I don’t mind teasers at the end of a book but that was entirely too much and none of it was of books featuring the characters in this novel. That makes me feel cheated.
Those quibbles aside, I would pick up another book featuring these characters.
