New Detroit

Standard

36257709

Chris is in Detroit to attend a function, however, when Kevin’s old friend comes stumbling in asking for help. His son had been killed and he believed the local mosque is to blame. Chris starts looking into the case, and quickly discover that the mosque is actually a cover for a home grown terrorist group. Chris works with his team to figure out who their targets are.

I had to sit on this review for a little bit..personally, I strongly dislike this book. I believe it’s because of the theme rather than the writing. This book was very action packed and fast pace. It’s pacing was excellent and there wasn’t a point where I felt that the story, was dragging on and the story wasn’t progressing. Though this book is the 6th book in the series it stands alone very well. The author gives just enough background to the characters to give new readers a sense of them while also allowing them to grow.

So for the reason, I disliked it. This is the first terrorist centred book that I’ve read, and maybe I thought this book would be more of a police procedural or a mystery book. However, it was like reading an action movie in novel form. Now I don’t know if because I work with a large number of Muslims that this book made me uncomfortable or the fact that extremists and terrorists come from all religions and ethnicities.

Given that I haven’t read any other book in this series, and maybe this book was just the wrong one to try, I’m not going back to read the previous books in this series. The writing style was excellent however this book just wasn’t for me.


I received an e-book of New Detroit through Voracious Readers Only in return for an honest review.
