Jack Emery #1
Steve P. Vincent
He who holds the pen holds the power.
When a corrupt think tank, The Foundation for a New America, enlists a Taiwanese terrorist to bomb a World Trade Organization conference, the US and China are put on the path to war.
Star journalist Jack Emery is pulled into a story far more dangerous than he could have imagined. Because the Foundation's deputy director, the ruthless Michelle Dominique, recognizes that whoever controls the message controls the world. And she will take control, no matter the price.
Enter Jack's boss, Ernest McDowell, owner and chairman of the largest media empire on the planet. In the midst of political upheaval, EMCorp is about to become the final play in the Foundation's plan. When Dominique traps the EMCorp owner in her web, Jack's the only one left to expose the conspiracy before it's too late.
As the world powers smash each other against the anvil of Taiwan, Jack will risk everything to battle the Foundation and prevent them from taking control amid the devastation of a global war.
If you like political thrillers, this book is for you! Secrets, lies, terrorism, murder and mayhem. It’s all there within the pages of a well thought-out, almost perfectly executed book.
With character development that will have you loving the villains as much as the hero, this story grabs you from the first page and never lets go. The world building was outstanding! I was completely wrapped up in Vincent’s creation.
The plot was daring to say the least. Vincent never held back. He killed off people I never expected to see go. He threw twists in that had me pacing as I read. To say this book was intense would be a huge understatement. I found myself talking to my Kindle on more than one occasion. (Not to mention the number of times I was this close to tweeting to him with my book rantings!)
But the thing that made this book was so damn good was that it was eerily realistic. I was shaking my head as I read because it was just too close. It made me think. I felt like looking over my shoulder repeatedly as I flipped through the pages. The giant game of political chess that was played by our champions and cheats was chilling. I freaking loved it!
This book literally made my heart race! 5 stars and pour a glass of Laphroaig. Sláinte!
