This was one bumpy ride. I couldn’t believe the speed at which this book read, 3 hours, and I was done. Amazing
Curiosity killed the cat, and it was one such fated day when Alex decided to be curious on his walk where he found a piece of paper with a website, user name, and a password. Giving in to the temptation, he entered the Dark Web and realized the site was for contract killing.
An assassin’s web, so to say, and he was caught when someone followed his digital footsteps. The hit men soon chased him, the cops branded him as a pervert and murderer, involved in 6 murders, two were hunting him down. His family was destroyed. How would he get out?
My first book by author Richard T. Burke, and it was mind blowing. A thrill-a-minute readathon. The author’s writing cast a web around and left a trail of crumbs for me to follow, deeper into the tangled mesh where I knew resisting was of no use. I just had to follow the story till the last page. I was too caught up in the intriguing narration.
The book did not allow the main character to rest too. He was walking, running, limping, hopping, and at one point, traveling in the bumper of the car to stay one step ahead of the killers. But all was not lost. The author added a good Samaritan to the team, an assassin turned protector, who helped to save Alex’s life. The book took some deep twists and turns, and there were times I was barely holding on.
The writing was fluid, with an atmospheric feel of a race against time. Short, snappy chapters made the pages fly. What a rush!!
I devoured this book, and then politely asked the author to release me. And he did!! Well, here I am writing this review!! 😂
NEVER SWITCH OVER TO THE DARK SIDE. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED BY AUTHOR RICHARD T. BURKE!!
I received a free ARC from Caroline and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
