I was a fan of this series from the very beginning. S.L. Shelton’s first novel kicked off a wildly entertaining ride, and his story just keeps getting better and better with each installment.

In Danger Close, Scott Wolfe is working with the CIA again, this time in the Middle East. After he accepts an offer to take part in his first field Op, governmental security checks are put into place and questions arise concerning both of his parents. This causes issues, not only for Scott himself, but with

This book is rated five stars, because there isn't a sixth to click on.

The 3rd book in the series started with a mystery. Inserted as backstory throughout the duration of the book, it slowly reveals a secret...actually, several secrets. As exciting as that backstory is, it doesn't compare to what Shelton does with the rest of the story...which is mind blowing. For those who started with book one, the progression in intensity of Scott's life (as well as his attitude and skills set) makes you feel

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
This is the third installment of the Scott Wolfe Series and I have read the two previous books. Danger Close explores Scott’s strange past, his unique abilities to process information at an accelerated rate, and his growing interest in working as a tech op in the field with the CIA. Scott must decide his future as the story unfolds, though he already knows what he wants. His goal is to become a fully trained CIA agent, but he

Scott Wolfe has all the makings of a reluctant hero. He’s good looking, confident without being overly cocky and he’s got plenty of chutzpah along with an extraordinary ability to extricate himself from all kinds of trouble – and he’s got trouble in spades. Scott hears voices in his head, his family has a history of mental challenges and he’s finding out issues about his past – make that his family’s past – that should’ve stayed exactly where it was – in the past. The writing is tightly-wound an ...more

Scott Wolfe REALLY stepped up his game. The action is so clear and the emotion is so palpable...I honestly feel like I just got out of the movies the imagery was so powerful. I'm so thrilled (and terrified) at the direction Scott's life is taking. I'm ready for the next one please!

Scott Wolfe is a tech analyst who believes mental illness runs in his family. A huge portion of his childhood memories missing and his past continues to shape him in ways he can't possibly understand. One evening in September 1996, something happened that changed the course of Scott’s life, and he was started along a path that affects him and everyone around him. After a failed abduction attempt—thwarted by Scott in spectacularly violent fashion—CIA Agent John Temple whisks him away from threats ...more

Mr. Shelton maintains his personal style and unique perspective of storytelling here in Book 3, as he pulls the reader further into Scott Wolfe’s world. Every book in the series has been a page-turner. The series just keeps getting better and better.

Mr. Shelton pulls a one-two punch shaking up the unfolding plot. You won’t be disappointed. He writes in such a way that the story flows effortlessly. The knowledge that goes into his books is amazing and leads to significant accuracy. I appreciate h

"Danger Close" from S.L Shelton is the third installment of the ongoing "Scott Wolfe Series" and it is one hell of a read that continues not only the fascinating story about the fight against the mysterious organization "Combine", but also fills in some blanks in Scott`s past, which adds to my impression that Mr. Shelton has created a complex storyline that will become even more exciting with each new installment!

What makes this series so special is Scott's awesome evolution with each book. He w

The intrigue deepens...

We learn more about Scott Wolfe's history in this book, the third in the series, and Scott learns more, too.

He also faces a number of suspenseful moments, as would be expected in a spy thriller!

The bad guys become more cartoonish — a little too over the top, as far as I'm concerned — and the plot is clearly setting Scott up for a denouement moment in a future book.

But predictability aside, it's a fun ride. I'm not keen on all the killing, but hey, that's what you get in

Scott Wolfe is really hitting his stride - he is James Bond, John McClane, and Axel Foley in a tight package, lots of skills and lots of fun to follow. The complex plot stretches into wider conspiracy and you'll finally start to learn the WHY of Mr. Wolfe. The battle sequences are top notch.

If you are scanning the reviews before committing to book one: I assure you, Danger Close will leave you breathless and likely thinking two things: "Why did it have to end?" and "Why is it 1am again?"

Great, Great Series

And the hits just keep on coming! Each book in the series is as good, if not better, than the one before.
(My apologies for the cliches but Amazon requires that reviews contain a minimum number of words. If not for that requirement, this review would merely say "READ THIS SERIES!!!" )

Scott Wolfe Series Shaping Up

Shelton's books are improving as the hero matures in his role. This one is hard to put down and I am hoping that the next will be even better.

Fast paced

The story is fast paced and gripping through out. Revolving around a search for nuclear weapons, it will grip your attention from beginning to end.

Another plank added to this series foundation, providing background explanation.

Good background edition, the series seemed to stumble a bit here, pace slowed, as background provided, but thankfully, this chapter in this series closes strongly. I will continue as series seems to be speeding up again.
