Devlin is a man who has just been pushed over the edge. His employer, Representative Henri Edwards—initially considered his mentor and savior—turns out to be nothing more than a sheep in wolf’s clothing. The Congressman is the mastermind behind a research program seeking to prevent gun violence through the surveillance of at-risk individuals. However, the program uses unethical methods to get results. Up until this point, Devlin has been a CIA pawn in Henri’s dangerous game. But now, the ex-Army ...more

What do you do when a crooked Congressman is caught in an unspeakable act of victimizing young virgin women with disabilities? Well for Devlin McConnelly, a former US Army Colonel turned CIA operative in the H.E.N.A. program, the answer was simple. Expose his boss--Congressman Henri Edwards--to the world and expose the equally perverse and clandestine project he heads.

But stopping a powerful Congressman with direct access to the President and the powerful resources of the CIA make that very sim

Devlin McConnelly, an ex CIA agent, decides to quit his job after he catches his boss/senior mentor/ guide/ best friend, Henri Edwards, in an intolerable act of stealing the virginity of a blind minor girl who is under the impression that she is pleasuring her lover Maurice (who resembles Henri in structure).
After this new development, Henri views Devlin to be a threat to his secret and his reputation as a congressman and labels him an enemy of America.
Meanwhile in Mexico the chief cartel rece

The cover of the book is what first caught my attention. The cover spoke a thousand words before I even opened the book.

When I did begin reading, She is Risen sucked me in from page one.

Each page turned made the characters come to life and the suspense was so thick you could cut it with a knife.

The story flows seamlessly and each page pulls you in deeper. I love thrillers and CIA thrillers rank even higher.I was sitting on the edge of my seat numerous times and found myself thinking about the s

This is a fast paced story that is centred on gun control and gun violence. The author takes a look at both sides of the argument through his well -written and very captivating story which is full of twists and turns and exciting scenes. You can almost feel yourself being totally immersed in all the scenes. The suspense is intense; I found myself wanting to know what would happen next and at the same time not wanting the story to end. This is a well written story that would appeal to anyone who ...more

I loved the cover! This book had a very unique plot as I have not read a book with this sort of topic. The book was well written and the characters were well developed. I found it confusing at times as they were going from character storyline to another. After a few chapters as a reader and listener you catch on. I have to say that the storyline disturbed me. To think that the CIA would watch individuals they deemed high risk on cameras and try to control the outcome disturbed me immensely. The ...more

I won a copy of 'She is Risen' through a Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

'She is Risen' is a political conspiracy thriller about a congressman and his team who are performing a case study on gun violence. I thought it started off a little slow but really picked up the pace a few chapters in. I thought the plot was a very interesting and engaging idea. The book had a good balance of action and political narrative.

I enjoyed the plot, characters and writing style. I liked how th

I won an autographed copy of "She is Risen" through the "First Reads" program, and I'm glad I am one of the lucky winners as this was one hell of a fun ride.

To be absolutely honest, the only thing I didn't like was the use of the present tense which happens to be a real pet peeve of mine but, apart from that, "She is Risen" is a flawless novel which could be easily made into a movie. There are twists and turns aplenty, conspiracy, a bit of supernatural here and there, and witty dialogues that R

Mesmerizing and captivating, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. It leaves a lot of questions in the end, mostly about the nature of this mysterious woman (that appears out of volcano?). Who is she? What does she want? Justice? Vengeance? How does she choose her victims?

It's clear why she chooses her final victim though, because the man has been using people left and right, a nasty character who deserves what he gets. The experiments conducted under his guidance are terrible, drivi

Just did my usual trawl through the kindle marketplace for something a little different and found this little Gem by Travis Adams Irish. I must admit the cover enthralled me to purchase and boy was I glad. I feel that the story is a brilliant political thriller and as usual i got caught up in the characters. The two main characters Henri and Devlin relationship is developed very well what with gun control issues and the supernatural edge it will leave you not wanting any more and enjoying it fro ...more

Travis Adams Irish has presented to me the greatest conspiracy thriller ever in this magnificent read "She Is Risen". The
story is so fast paced that I couldn't leave it down and read it in a day. The settings are so well laid out and

believable that I lost myself in the whole issue of Gun control and obliviously the Supernatural elements. The characters

are brilliantly developed in particular the two main characters Henri and Devlin relationship is explored magnificently.

A must have for all cons

Like any good story Travis Adams Irish (Author) has got it right from the start with a worrying yet interesting story line. Amongst others the character May finds herself caught up in a government study on the how and why people and guns often results in violence. Unfortunately nobody's told poor May and ensuing effect on her life left me hoping this doesn't become a true story. All and all a very modern look at what can happen when politicians and their government agencies take their power a st ...more

Rating: 8.0/10.0

Review: I'm a fan of conspiracy books, and this thriller definitely had me thinking after putting it down. I was impressed by the composition of the storyline and the character development. The author definitely put a lot of hard work into putting this together seamlessly. I'd definitely recommend this book to any thriller/conspiracy fan.

It's a different book from what I'm used to read but I must say that I found it interesting because of the topic. I was wondering all the time about the human nature, not because of those potentially dangerous of simple folk but those who have some power over others and use it to damage and destroy...

Very creepy. I'm still in a bit of a state of confusion as this is just one volume of the story, but would like to know how everything ends. I look forward to reading the second volume.

I'd rather not bore you with the typical biography. I was born...I got older and uglier. My most significant struggles have had to do with occasional battles against madness, and the diligence that it takes to remain grounded in a sometimes shockingly callous society. At age nineteen, I ventured out into the world; a troubled young man with obsessive-compulsive habits, a wrath of god temper, and a ...more
