If you read this as the kind of novel the real-life writers Rick Castle is based on are writing, it's fine as an action-adventure thrill ride with a bit of relationship drama to add spice. It's not deep, the villains' motivation is about as nuanced as Pinky and The Brain's, and its view of geopolitics would be right at home in the Reagan Eighties or Bush Aughts - but it keeps moving and is done before you're tired of it.
A Review by Anthony (Tony) T. Riggio of "The Tesla Secret" by Alex Lukeman
I read this book a couple of years ago having downloaded it for free from Bookbubs and read it and then forgot about it. A couple of days ago, I brought it to the screen on my Kindle and started reading it (again) having forgotten my first reading. by the time I realized that this was a re-read, I searched Goodreads and Amazon to see if I listed the book. Since I hadn't, I continued reading it.
It is a faced paced read with lots of action and predictable action heroes and a predictable plot involving new weaponry science though there was nothing complicated about the believability of the weapons power. It involved the technology of Nikola Testa (the inventor of Alternating Current and other things like the Tesla generator). The story involves the machinations of a criminal group of power movers in several countries bent on ultimate control of the world.
Fighting against this group is a small government organization (possible connections to the CIA). The members of this group are all super heroes and warriors extraordinaire.
It is well written, in spite of the simplicity of the story line and appealing to those readers that like "Bondish" adventurism. I was between reads and needed some diversion into relaxed reading. It is a quick read and one is able to read it in a couple of hours or during a transcontinental flight.
I did enjoy the work but will reserve judgment as to reading the previous works in this five book series but then again, I may need some relaxing adventurism.
I gave it 4 stars out of 5 and it did satisfy the need for relaxing reading, albeit this was an action thriller.
The missions are always exciting, suspenseful, full of action, and with tons of rear end kicking, and somehow de Golia keeps his enthusiasm up during the whole thing. I also love the way he portrays each character as, it is easy to tell them apart even from the start.
This book pits the American team against their Russian friend and some of his counterparts when they are to work together to in Russia on a case, only to find out that their objectives are very different, who will win out? Where is Selena? Heck where is Burps?
