I tend to read thrillers that take place in the here and now. This one flashes back to biblical times, and then works its way forward to all of the technology, science, medicine, and bio-ethics of modern times. If not, imaginatively, future times as well! I found it to be a masterful blend of historical thriller and religious ...more
The characters are well developed and believable, although the antagonist gets a bit extreme at times in behavior and speech. The plotline has twists and surprises which should catch the reader unexpectedly.

“The Network” was a highly disappointing read, due to the many tropes of novels in the political thriller and psychological thriller subgenres. After truly loving “The Last Mrs. Parrish” by Lynne and Valerie Constantine of the pen name, Liv Constantine, I had been disappointed by their second thriller, “The Last Time I Saw You”. L.C. Shaw is an additional pen name, created by Lynne Constantine. I had been interested to try out this novel, ...more
This book takes a Dan Brown turn, and it's unexpected. The Network has themes of good vs. evil, but more literally in the book, Satan vs. God. It is a Christian-ish bent, and it becomes central to the story. I think it will take readers by surprise, and not ...more
