A good entertainment read. Fatal Network is billed as Book 1 of the Jake Adams series, but there were times when the author's depiction of relationships made me feel like I had walked into the middle of a movie. Not sure what had transpired in the past with many of the characters and Jake Scott. I thought that it was rather strange. Maybe further along in the series there will be more backstory with some of those characters.

This was my first Trevor Scott book and is the first in the Jake Adams series. This was a good first book and sees retired Military/CIA operative, now self employed, Jake tracking down computer espionage for Teredata International Semiconductors. The story runs on two fronts, Germany and Italy, leaving Jake to try and put the pieces together. The ending was a bit to clean and completed with very little fuss. I will be interested to see how the series builds.

Good mixing of diverse flows of mystery thriller stories from different approaches to make a truly unique series of solutions that kept me interested and just behind the author. I was able to see the scenes in my mind's eye which seems a sign of good writing. Recommended.

It is an O.k. book. My biggest complaint is that it seemed to end abruptly. It left me thinking why author spend so much on this or that to just end the story without ever explaining why this or that was important to spend words on. I suspect it had more to do with the publisher/editor than it did with the author.

Worth reading

I had never read this author but after reading some of the reviews decided to read one of his books, was really glad I did as thoroughly enjoyed the book and have already purchased a second book.

Intriguing read

At first it was hard to follow from the way it skipped from one scene to another. It did all come together in the end. By the time you are 3/4 through the book you will have the ending figured out.

Entertaining but plot was a bit thin

An interesting and entertaining read but plot and characters were not well developed. My first exposure to this author and I will probably read at least one more of his books. Did not like the many loose ends left when I finished the book.

This was my first read of Trevor Scott. The price was right and it seemed to be the style for which I was looking. Overall it filed the bill. I will cut some slack since it is the first book of the series. I expect the back story to fill in a bit better as the series continues.

Average spy thriller

Character development was weak. A bunch of details were either understood or just skipped over. I didn't hate it, but I wasn't drawn in by it. If I run out of everything else to read, I might continue on the series.
Pete Schrader

Not great not terrible. By the end I was thinking who cares which company ends up with the technology. I'll read book two and see if the series gets better.

Easy to read but the story wasn't really very good and it was hard to keep track of who was a good guy and who was a bad guy
not sure about these books i knew "who-done-it" half way through the book and am not sure if that was the idea or not!
