I just finished reading this book and could not walk away from it. It takes you to different places like Paris, Buenos Aires, LA, Baltimore, DC, and Florida. There are a few intertwining stories that are going on, all linked together by certain characters. Most of this is edge of your seat kind of situations. Some of it is a guy just being a guy. It's fast paced and romantic, cloak and dagger and missed girl/guy signals. You think you know who the bad guy is, but then they are taken out of the p ...more

I love to read popular books, classic romance novels, mystery thrillers and occasionally will pick up a new writer just to see what's out there.

I had read some good reviews of this author on some of the Kindle blogs and I bought this author's other book, a romance novel (Love Letters) and absolutely loved it.

This ebook was the same price for my Kindle ($2.99) so I bought it this one as well.

This story had me hooked on the first page. There were so many twists and turns in this book that I stopp

I read the great reviews for this author on the Kindle blogs I follow and had to see what the buzz was about. I love thrillers from early on and I like this book, a lot. It grabbed me from the very first page. I loved the unexpected subplots and amazing twists that this author melds into his story. I was touched by the romantic scenes that were not overdone. Well done.

A gripping thriller about what could happen,so real I read it over a weekend. Chilling but I kept going back to it. I have read both of Bryan Mooney's books and can't wait for his next one. Great book.

This one was so bad I can't believe I stuck with it. But there are five star reviews here, so I couldn't believe it would not get better as the book went along, even though from the first few pages it was full of groaningly obvious grammar errors.

But it didn't get better, it got worse. Next came using one word which sounded like another, chauvinistic treatment of women, really bad dialogue, adolescent level pining and longing, run-on sentences; and I wonder in the cold clear light of day if it

In a world where no one is who they appear to be, a bereft FBI agent, Nick Ryan, sets forth to try and find his wife's murderer. On leave from The Bureau, Nick finds himself thrust in a political world where he ultimately ends up being hunted. In a world filled with infidels, terrorism, oil wars and plain old government corruption, Nick discovers the ultimate of national betrayals.

Nick Ryan, FBI agent, loving husband, devoted son, conflicted soul.

The Potus Papers is a good read for the most part. Unlike other reviewers, I actually enjoyed the four different stories at the beginning of the book before the main character was introduced. It showed like a movie, finding the reason for Nick Ryan to jump in and take charge. It showed the sleuth using his detective skills to flesh out the answers. And coming together at the end. Later parts of the book seemed written by someone

It's easy to like Nick Ryan. He's a hard-working, compassionate agent. Cares about his family, such as his deceased wife and ailing father.

He deserves better than the plot in this book. Some reviewer said there's a previous book starring Nick Ryan and that it's much better. Maybe I should give it a try.

The book seemed disjointed. Usually the agent in a thriller is front and center in every chapter but sometimes, even allowing for action to take place in other scenes to cause us to worry for the

Looking forward to the next one! Will be interesting to see where the story goes from here. Glad that I started the series.

This book was had moments where the action grabbed you but overall it was an average suspense book with a lot of killing. I did not like the end at all, it left me saying, "huh?" I did like the fact that it didn't jump around; I was able to keep track of all the characters.
