28 Pages is billed as a ‘political thriller’ and it certainly is. The book follows Heather Grahl, a young DC lawyer who is investigating the Saudi Ambassador who has been accused of abusing young girls. She takes a phone call telling her that her sister has been murdered, and the regular recurring theme is that ‘The Saudis’ keep appearing in her discussions.

The book takes the backdrop of the 28 redacted pages of the September 11th Commission Report and discusses the links to Saudi Arabia. There
This is my first political thriller and I did not know what to expect. All I can say is that this book is absolutely riveting! I was captivated and spellbound by both the characters and the information. I know there is a lot more behind what *really* happened before, during and after 9/11. My late, beloved husband passed away in 2012 could easily see the ~transparency~ of not only our government and what is going on with other powerful countries and powerful people that are infiltrating the Unit ...more

If looking for a great read is sort of like a treasure hunt, finding "28 Pages" by Allen Mitchum is like having your newly-bought metal detector uncover a diamond ring in the sand at the beach. This terrific book, Mitchum's first novel, is as good a political thriller as you will find.

Excellent character development, a well-told storyline that keeps you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter to the last and realistic dialogue all work together to create a memorable reading experience. T

This was an OK thriller that was somewhat marred by poor editing/proofing and some silly typos ("Yea" is repeatedly used instead of "Yeah" near the beginning). I also found some of the conversations forced and unrealistic.

I found the overall plot quite intriguing, but the author has a tendency to 'info-dump' some of his ideas, and certain sections read like text books or opinion pieces rather than a novel. It would have had far greater impact if these sections could have been integrated into the
I was given a copy of this book by the author, who requested a review.

I thought the title of this book was strange and as I read, I kept wondering why the author picked such it because it's certainly not very catchy. It finally became clear, and when the reader reaches that moment, the title becomes a perfect one for this book.

I loved this book. Some minor editing problems aside, it's a well-written and well-told story that moves at a fast pace. It's not just a really good debut novel - it's a r

This book is a first rate political thriller brilliantly researched and flawlessly written. Heather Grahl is an attorney investigating allegations of abuse by the Saudi Ambassador. She gets a frantic call from her mother informing her that her sister has been murdered. When she travels to Bimini to identify her sisters body she learns of the suspicious circumstances surrounding the murder including a man who washed up on shore in Bimini with gunshot wounds and subsequently disappears from the ho ...more
This is not one of those quick, cute who-done-it. It is a very thought provoking novel. I will warn you not to start reading this until you have the time to finish it, because it will take over your life. It truly is that exciting.
So many reviewers today complain about the author's grammar or the formatting on the Kindle. Not one little problem with this well written novel. I loved the reader's guide at the back of the book, it made me rethink what I had read, and renewed the story. Thank you Mr

Allen Mitchum has crafted a political thriller that you can't put down. In a story that could've been pulled from the evening news, he's developed a story and characters that will keep you engaged until the end.

If you like Vince Flynn or Brad Thor, I think you'll like this book.

In his debut, Mitchum has set come out running and I can't wait for the next one
Excellent book. It was exciting and was based on 28 pages that are ommitted from the 9/11 commission report. While there really are some things ommitted from the 9/11 commission report, this is entirely fiction. Still good book. Only thing that I didn't really care for was that it seemed a little overtly islamiphobic. Other than that great book.
Beth Erwin
As a political thriller, 28 pages is light on politics, although political overtones exist throughout; the book provides links to Saudi Arabia, including the possibility of a 'soft jihad' in the West. The story is fast paced and well plotted, with believable, engaging characters.

Overall, this was a good read.
I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway.

This is a book that kept me guessing the whole way through. It was suspenseful and made me react while reading it like I would in a thriller type movie.

I would recommend this to anyone who like suspense and thrills.

Pretty good for a Kindle freebie!
