This is the first book I have read by this author but it won't be he last. Imagine a drug more addictive than cocaine, it can drive its users insane and it kills, now imagine that the Colombians have that drug and want to distribute it throughout the United States. This is what Nathan is trying to prevent. This book captured my attention on the first page and kept me turning pages until I finished. This book has a lot of suspense and action and of course an underlying love story. It is a true ...more

Not too badly written.
A fast-paced novel, with strong characters that seem to have a helping hand too often by strange twists of fate that seem specifically-written to get them out of the trouble they get into.

Excellent .... well written and amazingly believable. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Would make a superb film as well. Action all the way through.

This book is action packed, starting from the very beginning. I couldn't put the book down. I read it in a day. Stopping only when lunch and dinner was served.

I was looking for something with an edge of bio terror, espionage and thriller to it and for the most part 'Black Coke' delivers. Seriously it has all the elements needed to keep you turning the pages even when you want to stop and put the book down, its almost like the writer knows what to do to grab you and pull you back in. There is the drug which causes some pretty devious ailments, is addictive and destructive as hell. There is the broken protagonist who fights for the cause despite odds ...more

The books I've read like this all have similar plots what get's you to read it and not want to put it down are the characters. Mr.Grenton has created a sympathetic hero that you can't help rooting for. You can't wait to see what obstacles will be in his path along the way, which of course means you can't put it down until your done.

A suspense/thriller dealing with the drug cartels in Colombia. Our main character (the hero) is part of a British organization fighting the drug trade. He starts to get too close to one of the heads of a major cartel and things happen.

The story tells how he brings down the bad guys and who gets hurt in the process.

Brutal Baddie

Story was fair...maybe 100 or so pages too long....and some of the events of the book I didn't personally care for. However, Amonite Victor is a CLASSIC "bad guy" step ahead throughout the entire story, other then allowing the hero too many second chances. If this was a movie the audience would be looking forward to this Baddie's finale....

A good read

This was an enjoyable book to read, it kept my interest from beginning to end. I especially love the idea of a woman being the bad guy and is just as tough or tougher than the average man, also she appears to be one step ahead of you and can out think the culprit.

Fast read

Not much time to really explore people and personalities, but the plot action is so fast and furious that that doesn't seem to matter. I enjoyed the book, it just didn't seem to be long enough.

This was a good book, but the one thing that really stood out the most was the amount of chapters! I'd read two pages, new two more pages, new chapter. I think there were close to 100 and it wasn't a long book really.

Horror of drug cartels but a good read

A new twist on an old story, good versus evil, money and power corrupt, etc. we follow the good guy through the story while he fights the war on drugs.

Very exciting. Be sure you have a day or two set aside because after about 50 pages you won't want to put it down. Very fast paced and really draws you in.
