An intriguing, thought-provoking, suspenseful thriller. Very realistic, serving as a wake-up call.
Featuring a strong female protagonist and her male colleague. Well written and properly edited.
Definitely a page-turner.

I bought the book after virtually meeting the author on Twitter. My mom read it before I got to it. She started it yesterday and finished it today. She loves it. She said it was great from the start. She loved the characters and the plot. It was well written. She says it taught her many things that she didn't know, or if she did know them, she had forgotten them. Those are her words, not mine. lol As you know, Mom's know best, so go get yourself a copy. ...more

Very good story

This is an outstanding story of treason and constitutional law in the United States. It has murder, solders, intrigue, suspense, mystery, romance, friendships, and politics. In short, a very intense but enjoyable read.

As far as conspiracy theories go, 51st Directive is one of those that is quite realistic and full of contemplations.

Erica, an FBI agent has been sent to the basement for mail duties as punishment. This is when she comes across an anonymous letter, which gives cause for concerns. She decides not to ignore the contents and brings it to the attention of Gilliam, her boss.

Sam is a detective who is contacted by Erica to validate the source of the anonymous letter. Once Erica gets confirmation of who

What do you do when the enemy of the country is the President? But more so, what can you do when the President of the United States orchestrates the mass murder of the whole of the government? There is no stopping him, or is there?

Follow Erica and Sam, along with their crew, as they try to solve this puzzle. They have been warned not to trust anyone, and this advice couldn’t be more exact. I won’t spoil it for you, but you will be surprised!!

The action-packed suspense that Michael Agliolo brings

I received a copy from Voracious Readers Only in exchange for an honest review. I wanted to like this book, who doesn’t like a strong female lead? But it was somewhat lacking in that the main character was an attractive woman who tried her hardest to be “manly” if that even makes sense. The premise was very intriguing and with everything going on in the world , sort of plausible. But what really did it for me were all the typos, and not just spelling errors, but mixed up tenses, improper punctua ...more

I enjoyed reading this book. Full of conspiracy theories and one of the things that I loved about it is that the right wing and the left wing of the government both had crazy ideas and were equally off base. Lots of action. I felt like it bogged down in the middle. Good choice for a summer read.
Full disclosure: I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

If you enjoy spy-type thrillers then this is definitely for you. I enjoy a good thriller, however this kind of read is out of my norm. I am glad I took the time to read it. It does put into question....what if? Considering the power the government has over everything, it is a valid concern and this book will take you on a thrilling and scary journey of What If??
