Denison Hatch has done it again. The second in the Jake Rivett Series is as riveting as the first.
As breathtaking, as heart-hammering and as page-turning, but there is also the skein of a love story threaded into the fabric as well. I’m sure this is not the last of jake Rivett, so it’ll be interesting to see how that develops.
As an undercover cop, Jake lives in the Underbelly of New York, and as an adrenalin junkie, that suits him, but his readers have to somewhat be that way inclined as well, just to follow him without getting serious cardiac probs! For me, nothing is as suspenseful as Undercover crime fiction, if the protagonist is a friend of mine. As any writer worth their salt should make him or her.
The plot – a handful of Xtreme Xplorers, from right down in the noxious sewers of the city to up on its towering skyline, involved in targeting the mega-rich properties of a ruthless land baron – is credible and gripping. The characters live and breathe, the flow is continuous, but the suspense modulates like waterboarding with rests…
This frank review is thanks to the eEdition sent me by the author.
