D.L. Wilson takes his readers on an unparalleled journey, the likes of which they won’t soon forget. Not only does he create a fantastic group of characters, the plot of Sirocco is also gripping and draws readers in from the get-go. Reading through the novel itself, trying to guess what could possibly happen next as the characters become more developed and the end draws nearer. WIlson makes his readers wonder if he knows something that his readers don’t about what’s really going on in the world ...more

This novel is a winner in both the fields of characters and plot. I would not be at all surprised to see this come to theatres soon; all it has left to do is be discovered. The vibrant people that come to life in this book felt like people that I could meet any day, and the character of Brett proves that sometimes the hero can really be a decent person-not all heroes have to be recovering from a dark past or making amends, which is a trend that I feel we see too much of today. Brilliantly ...more

I recently finished reading Sirocco and enjoyed it immensely. The story gripped me from the first page to the last. I am normally a slow reader, but once I began to read this book I could not put it down. I am an avid reader of James Rollins and I would put this thriller alongside any of his books. The best stories draw you into the page and allow the reader to develop a relationship with the characters. For me, this was one of those books. My wife loved the book also. This well written novel is ...more

Sirocco was an amazing read, one that I won’t soon forget. The novel itself, comprised of vivid and well-written characters, was easy to read as I felt like I was racing through the pages to find out what would happen next. There wasn’t a single moment in this book that I was bored. The book itself is written with the scene-changing tactics of modern films, where a viewer looks into multiple different perspectives, trying to anticipate how everything will come together and what the final twist ...more

The true strength of this novel is based in Wilson’s writing skills and his research. Creating a theme that chills readers isn’t easy, and keeping it in the spectrum of potentially “real” isn’t either...Wilson manages to do both by incorporating his knowledge of the areas of bioterrorism into what becomes a fast-paced, terrifying, and ultimately, very thrilling novel. The work itself is not something that can be easily written off as fiction-in fact, I found concerns that something similar could ...more
Jul 22, 2013 Elise rated it it was amazing
This book does something that I haven’t felt in quite a while-it makes me believe that this type of book could really take place. Something that should be written off as fictional has crossed over into the realm of wondering if it could potentially happen in real life because D.L. Wilson pushes the very boundaries of logical action, propelling his characters to act in ways that are just far-fetched enough to be brilliant while still possible. Overall, the changes in direction of the action and ...more

Sirocco is one of the only novels I’ve read in quite a while that does the thriller genre justice. Its plot will keep you guessing as to what’s going to happen next, and all the while you’re trying to piece together people’s minds and actions. It utilizes the tactics of showcasing certain aspects and hiding others in order to keep the reader going, trying to divulge information and find out what’s going to happen on the next page.

I thought it was an okay book. It was a lot about government and biological warfare. I didn't understand a lot of what they were talking about with the biology part of it. Overall I thought it was an okay book and it wasn't a bad read. There was enough action that it wasn't dragging. I could still understand what was going on and the direction of the book. There was also a surprise at the end that I didn't expect at all.

Sirocco weaves its treacherous way from North Korea to Washington, D.C., to London and Palestine, and through the underbelly of NYC. A well-written, thriller where the beautiful villainess, Sherifah, is just as intriguing and multidimensional as the hero, Brett. Let this cautionary tale of bio-terrorism surprise you with its twists and turns. A good read by D.L. Wilson.

What a page-turner! This thriller kept me guessing what was going to happen next throughout the entire novel. Don’t be surprised by twists that you never saw coming! I was also really impressed how Wilson was able to write about some really heavy issues, most prevalently bioterrorism, but in an entertaining way. I highly recommend this book!
Aug 22, 2013 Zaw rated it it was amazing
What a thrilling book! I really enjoyed how D.L. Wilson managed to put so many details into his book. He must have done a lot of research to get things to be so realistic. It was crazy thinking that something like this could potentially happen in real life...D.L. clearly has a brilliant mind when it comes to creating new plots.
Jun 14, 2013 Danielle rated it really liked it
Wilson does what so many other writers fail to in keeping the secrets safe until the very end. A motley cast of characters subtly foreshadows a climactic ending...but you don’t know what’s a clue to the ending and what’s a red herring up until the very end. This thriller aptly deserves its categorization because it kept me thrilled as I was reading.

Twists and turns truly define D.L. Wilson’s Sirocco. I’m typically not one for thrillers and I certainly don’t typically write book reviews but this was a must. This fast paced novel is one you will be sure to never forget. Pick this up now and read!

The subject matter was interesting and I stayed interested in how the story would end. My only small complaint would be that the way the connections discovered clues and connections was often a bit far-fetched. Other than that, not a bad read.

How can a novel this good not be number #1 on the best seller list. I was absolutely floored at how well this novel was written. I love the plot and every characters was unique and important to the story. Not a word wasted. The twist at the end was completely unexpected. Another great read in 2012.
