Whether it's about Navy SEAL training or what a body does as it dies, when the extra steps an author takes to make sure his facts are as accurate as possible is obvious, it's a special thing. There's always the other side of the coin, making sure the reader is not flooded with too much superfluous information, but I greatly appreciated the authentic voice. For me, it showed absolutely showed this author is serious about his craft, and he means business just like the main character Thomas Highway ...more

Highway to Vengeance by Brian Springer is a fast-paced and gripping action thriller. Well written and with a solid plot, it's a perfect read for long summer evenings with a cuppa coffee!


The protagonist of this story, Thomas Highway is an ex-Navy SEAL. He decided to join the Navy ranks after the 911 attacks, but was forced to drop out not long after finishing his training, due to a life-threatening health issue. The story starts with Thomas and his wife, Josie, having their weekly lunch at a BBQ

This book woke me up to the idea that there must be oodles of undiscovered hidden talent in the Indie book industry. While Highway to Vengeance is in the hardboiled mystery genre, it participates in none of its cliches, while, at the same time, feeling comfortingly familiar. I don't know how Brian Springer managed to give me the feeling that the story was an old-school classic, and at the same time, that it was incredibly modern and timely, except to say that the author is one masterful storytel ...more

In the past I have read a lot of books by authors like Jack Higgins and Colin Forbes but got a bit tired of the same stories rehashed and the slightly dated feel to a lot of their back catalogue. As such I eased off of novels in that vein. However the synopsis for this book sounded current and interesting I was hoping a new author and characters would perk me up.

Thomas Highway is a former Navy SEAL who is hellbent on revenge after the murder of his wife. She is killed in a set up hit and run acc

My uncle was a Navy SEAL and there was always this mystery surrounding what it was like, so I was especially intrigued by the training information. It was captured with such detail that it had me re-reading the author’s bio to see if he had indeed participated in the training. Highway to Vengeance is fast paced, it is thrilling, it is about revenge, and it will leave you racing to the next page to find out what happens.

Brian Springer did a great job writing a solid plot. The main character Tho

Article first published as Book Review: Highway to Vengeance: A Thomas Highway Novel by Brian Springer on Blogcritics.


Vengeance is often sought and yet does not always leave you with a better feeing after your revenge or of who you have become. Anger is often what drives it and yet the ends do not always justify the means.

In Highway to Vengeance: A Thomas Highway Novel Brian Springer has delved into that very subject. Thomas Highway, known to his friends as Highway is an unassuming man. He is in

I really enjoyed reading this book. Brian Springer did an awesome job. From page one the conversation flowed smoothly and continued throughout which made the characters seem so real. I loved the training sessions because it tied in so well when it was time to activate the mission and made things plausible. None stop action. A great read. I recommend it.

The story line had promise. What I lacked in reading was the suspense and climax at important moments. I felt there was not much lead up, and then the author just handed over the information.

This was a good story, it took off quickly and maintained a fast pace. I was a bit disappointed by the end, as it seemed as though the author was just trying to finish up the project. Overall I'd recommend it. I wish the author would use the word "magazine" rather than "clip". While the words are often used interchangeably, they shouldn't be.

Don't mess with a navy seal. Simple plot with twists and turns. A little crass for me but a quick read. Somewhat ended quickly.
