A superior self-contained-world thriller, "Storm Surge" not only delivers swift-paced excitement in a uniquely spooky environment -- a southeast American island sealed off from the rest of the world by a Category 5 hurricane -- but it takes the time to develop interesting, fully dimensional characters without missing a beat. Max Chase is an antihero with a conflicted past in the Jack Reacher mold -- yet very much his own man -- who is surprised to discover that he has a soft spot for struggling single-mom waitress Sharon and her sullen yet spunky teen daughter, Glory. All three are fully realized characters that the reader comes to care about as they weave in and out of the clutches of a gang of hardened professionals criminals bent on using the storm as cover to keep a hidden secret from slipping into the wrong hands. The prose is taut, artful in places, and

If I had any quibbles, it's that I would have liked to have seen author J.D. Rhoades raise the stakes for the reader by giving the bad guys just as much backstory and breadth of character. When you care almost as much about the baddies as you do the good guys, it creates a delicious moral ambiguity that makes it much harder to see the black hats go down -- as, inevitably, they must. But "Storm Surge" still satisfies on just about every level, and it says something deeply unpleasant about the publishing industry that it took a pass on this highly commercial story and forced Rhoades to put it out himself. Fortunately, for us, he did, and at $[...], it's one of the best book bargains I've ever come across.

If you want a book filled with horror, graphic depictions of human life scavaged by all kinds of critters, then this book is for you. I found, however, it was well written, but I had to stop reading. I was having nightmares, which is unusual for me.

Fantastic!!

Heaps of action, great characters, one wild rollercoaster of story: this is how thrillers need to be written!

I hate to admit it, but lately thrillers have been disappointing me. Too many wooden characters. Too many contrived plot twists. Too many doomsday devices threatening to destroy too many major cities, etc. Storm Surge is everything those try-hards are not: it's fresh, original and bloody great fun.

Thank you JD Rhoades for doing such a great job!

This one hits the ground running, fast-paced from the first page. Killers come in all shapes and sizes, and J.D. Rhoades apparently finds something to like in most of 'em, which makes for a real rock and roll theme park ride. We can relate to the good guys, the bad guys, and most all the folks in between as they meet head on in a confined location during a massive storm. Great fun.

Well, another Rhoades novel sits on my top shelf. In deciding which novel of his to read next, the synopsis of "Storm Surge" grabbed me since I live on the coast of the Atlantic. Been through several Cat. 3's, so, this was up my alley.
This hurricane is expertly described. The characters are perfect for their respective roles. The action is non-stop. And...the plot is on the money.
The premise of this story could actually come from the headlines about today's politics, since many sneaky things go on behind closed doors as power is sought by greedy men. However, I like the main characters and their desire to see right win over evil. This is one of those novels you can't put down until the solid ending releases you.
I'm expecting a sequel to this one...no need to let three, possibly four great characters sit on the bench. I highly recommend this novel for anyone enjoying suspense and payback. "Nice writin', Dusty. Keep it up and keep smilin'..."

Excellent character and plot. Jack Reacher type with two strong females and a cast of treacherous foes in the midst of a hurricane. Violent,but a really good read. Finished this and immediately ordered more.

I loved Storm Surge - I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. The characters are well-written, the suspense is just right (not too much or too little), and the setting was a creative one. I've bought other books by this author based on how much I enjoyed Storm Surge. You won't regret buying this book if you enjoy suspense.

When it comes to good and bad, "bad" is a relative term. When the bad guys come for you, what if your hero wasn't exactly a good guy himself? This is the underlying theme of this story.

And it is an enjoyable tale. The action is gritty, well written and easy to visualize. The setting is harsh- an island in the midst of a hurricane. The characters are well fleshed out and the dialogue is solid (even if the teenage girl sometimes speaks in a way that I consider out of character.) And the ending is gratifying.

The nice thing is there is more to the story than that. I almost gave this 5 stars, to be honest. This is a character-driven action story, and for myself that makes all the difference in the world. The details of the story are less important for me that the fact that the characters are interesting and are worth caring about, and on that count this story was really entertaining.

Highly recommended for fans of gritty action, especially those who enjoy a good Jack Reacher or John Rain novel.
