Military Espionage Thriller For Review

Melody Hill
By Rick DeStefanis
Published: April 2015
ISBN: 978-1508742166
Pages: 359
Genre: Military/Espionage Thriller

Melody Hill is the exciting prequel to the award winning novel "The Gomorrah Principle." This is Duff's story as he goes off to war in Vietnam leaving behind his mother, sister and best friend Brady Nash.

Duff Coleridge has joined the military and heading to the war in Vietnam. With the instincts of a natural warrior the young paratrooper quickly proves himself a more than capable soldier and is recruited into the shadowy world of black-ops. Despite months of jungle fighting, Duff soon finds counter-espionage is an even more dangerous proposition when he is approached by a female South Vietnamese intelligence operative. Are her advances based on true attraction, or are they merely a means of exploitation? Is this beautiful French-Vietnamese woman, as his CIA boss claims, a Vietcong spy? Duff must depend on his natural intuition and instincts to know who is telling the truth. His CIA boss, who seems more rogue than company man, is dealing arms on the black market when he’s not delivering an arbitrary and ruthless justice to the local populace. Duff realizes he must get out before it’s too late, but only then does he discover he is already trapped in a lethal game of cat and mouse.

Second Life by S.J. Watson

"Before I Go to Sleep" was a story that really made an impression on myself.

So I was very excited to put my hands on a new story.
It was interesting but the characters were not strong enough. 
Worst: the more I was trying to turn the pages, the more I was losing interest in the story.

Very disappointed as I was really expecting to enjoy myself.

Seeing Evil
By Jason Parent
Genre: Thriller, Mystery
Review copies available in
pdf, epub, mobi, 232 pages

Fate in plain sight.

Major Crimes Detective Samantha Reilly prefers to work alone—she’s seen as a maverick, and she still struggles privately with the death of her partner. The only person who ever sees her softer side is Michael Turcotte, a teenager she’s known since she rescued him eleven years ago from the aftermath of his parents’ murder-suicide.

In foster care since his parents’ death, Michael is a loner who tries to fly under the bullies’ radar, but a violent assault triggers a disturbing ability to view people’s dark futures. No one believes his first vision means anything, though—not even Sam Reilly. When reality mimics his prediction, however, Sam isn’t the only one to take notice. A strange girl named Tessa Masterson asks Michael about her future, and what he sees sends him back to Sam—is Tessa victim or perpetrator?

Tessa’s tangled secrets draw Michael and Sam inexorably into a deadly conflict. Sam relies on Michael, but his only advantage is the visions he never asked for. As they track a cold and calculating killer, one misstep could turn the hunters into prey.

Glen Robinson is with a writer whose genres include middle grade, YA and Biblical based suspense novels. Not only does he write, he also teaches writing to college students and discusses the importance of editing. However, what I really found intriguing was his "Great Adventure Manifesto" or his belief system in why he writes. You can read the interview at
