This book grabs you on the first page and doesn't let you go until the very end. A thriller that takes you through the streets of Dubai at a break neck pace, every twist and turn leaving you on the edge of your seat. Torture, terrorism and DNA all come together to form an intricate plot, peppered with great characters, including one very special cat. If action, suspense and intrigue are your cup of tea then take my advice and grab a big old cup sit back and take a sip. I think one day I'll be watching it on the big screen. I'm definitely going to read more Jack Hayes.
Warning - may cause sleep deprivation from not being able to put the book down.

Stealing Power - Bo Brennan
This novel was hard to put down. The carefully constructed case was a roller coaster ride and it had me guessing the whole way through. Sometimes that's the best you can hope for when it comes to a good mystery. If that had been all Mr. Brennan had provided in his book I would have been satisfied, but he also created two incredible main characters, that are very lovable despite or maybe because of their many flaws. AJ Colt and India Kane seem like oil and water, but they are more alike then they realize. They both carry around great pain. It isn't any wonder that their chemistry is sizzling and so were some of the scenes. The case they work on is personal to both of them for different reasons and they will do anything to catch the guy. I didn't like to put the book down and it caused me many tired mornings from staying up too late to read just one more page. I will definitely be buying the next book in this series.

Everyone Burns is such an amazing book. The mystery has so many twists and turns that guessing the ending was impossible. Just when you think you might have all the pieces of this intricate yarn put together he adds another skein. I was guessing the whole way. Mr. Dolan has a sharp wit and the books main character, David Braddock, is a pleasure to get to know. I think I may have fallen in love with him a little. I love a character with flaws and David Braddock has his share, but he is also funny, intelligent, insightful and always trying to do the right thing even if he doesn't always succeed. I like a character who is lovable despite their weaknesses much better than one who is lovable because of his many virtues. David and many of the others in this book fit that bill. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery. If you do be prepared to be transported to the tiny Thai island of Sumai. Have fun I know I did.
