it was amazing

When the Reaper Comes Like watching it play out on the big screen in full Technicolor and Dolby, the action from the beginning of "When the Reaper Comes" by John DeBoer was so well laid out, it was difficult to hit the pause button until the last scene played out. I do enjoy a good thriller and have read my share of both military and political themed novels, including stories that include the present day battle with ISIS. So much of the philosophy zooms over our heads and is usually far enough removed off our own soil that it is fairly easy to stick our heads in the sand and try to pretend it isn't happening. Unfortunately, it is, and America is no longer the isolated and protected country it once was. The concept of being infiltrated from within isn't a new one. Our protagonist is a former Navy SEAL, Adam Taylor, who, along with his partner receives a temporary assignment in Adam's hometown in upstate eastern US. The two are to help protect a rock star giving a concert who has made some dangerous and inflammatory errors concerning the Islamic State. As with any good cinema, the reader can be the proverbial fly on the wall in the terrorists' group planning sessions, as well as the NSA members responsible for the discovery and execution of their own plan for capture and custody of the antagonists. Adam also enlists the aid of boyhood friends; now law enforcement. As the intrigue develops and Adam is able to keep one step ahead of Khouri, the plot moves faster and faster. Can he continue to outwit the men with the IED, weapons, and plan for escape? The dialogue runs so real, you could almost join the conversation. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a review, and I must say it was a very good bargain! Recommended for any thriller fans as well as those looking for a very topical revelation of the current conflict. John L. DeBoer
