Tall, dark and silent?
I am always looking for a new author – someone to keep me on the edge of my seat while entertaining me. Alex Berenson has good reviews and this book ‘The Silent Man’, was OK. It’s the third in a series and unfortunately, we do not have the first two books although if I was really hooked I could probably order the previous two through the interloan option at the library. It’s an easy read, but I felt a little disjointed coming into a series on the third book and I think I missed a lot of relevant information regarding the characters.
The hero is a little dark. He seems to have rebounded from being on the ‘wrong’ side of the law regarding terrorism and the mind-set of the ‘baddies’. I think he may grow as the story advances and this makes me want to keep reading. This particular story involved a believable storyline and the simplicity of the wrong people getting hold of weapons that could end civilisation. Especially now, I can believe that the fanatics of any religion could cause maximum damage with a few lucky breaks so it’s not so farfetched as some thrillers. I’m looking forward to reading the next in the series, mainly to see the growth of the main character.
