Executive Order (Reeder and Rogers Thriller) - Max Allan Collins

Action? You want action? This book starts out with four of the top CIA agents in an area between two countries unknown to them that they are about to start a war. They can see tanks and other military vehicles from both countries on either side of them. However they are just sitting there. All of a sudden they start moving towards the agents and then Russian paratroopers start descending from the skies above. The war is starting and the agents are caught in the middle. They are, of course, caught in the middle and killed. No one in America knows that they are there. The head of the CIA does not know they are there. They president has ordered that no one should be there. Why are they there? No one seems to know. What is going on.

The Secretary of the Interior is suddenly dead. She has ate a sandwich that has sesame in it. She's allergic to sesame. Is it murder or just a coincidence?

This just the start of what's going on in this book. The president calls in Joe Reeder to help figure out what exactly is going on.

The action only picks up from here.

This is a book you definitely don't want to start reading at bedtime. I had to stop reading the book right in the middle of the best part and I was not happy. I went back and started again just so I could get my heart pumping and into it. Because, believe me, that's exactly what happened when I was reading this book.

I read number 2 in the series of this book and just like this book found it outstanding. A great read that I did not want to put down. The pages just by. The action was continuous. I was so into this book. While the ending did tie up everything, I still did not want it to end.

The characters of Reeder and Rogers are very likeable. They work well together and their relationship is more like brother and sister. I like that. The author did a great job with all the action that was going on in the book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thanks to Thomas & Mercer for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

 “Shane, you can’t see the future. You are human. We all know the risks of being in this line of work but we also know the rewards that come with it. Shane what we do, what you do is amazing. We protect those who can’t protect themselves and sometime Shane we are going to get hurt and sometimes we lose people but the important part to remember is that we win Shane, we get to see how this ends, we get to end it.”
 
Shane looked deep in to my eyes and let out a sigh, “How do you do it baby? How do you live through what you lived through and still see hope? How is it that you can look at the world and see so much and hope? And not only do you see hope but you spread it baby. You make me believe that there is a better tomorrow and that the world isn’t just shit. You are my light darlin.”
 
I couldn’t help the tear that fell down my cheek. I know Shane thought I was his light but he was mine and he was the one that showed me that the world can be a beautiful place. He is the one that showed me what love is, he showed me a world that I didn’t think existed.
 
“You know more and do more than you think Shane. You don’t even see how truly amazing and perfect you are.” I leaned over and kissed him gently on the lips, forgetting about my banged-up face. I flinched when Shane put his forehead on mine, I tried to hide it because I knew he needed this closeness but he saw right through.
 
“Shit baby I’m sorry. Let me take a look.” Shane inspected my face and made a growling sound from deep in his throat. His eyes filled with so much anger, I could feel it coming off him in waves. I placed my hands on his.

Stillwell: A Haunting on Long Island by Michael Phillip Cash

This is a relatively short, easy read. Given that the story revolves around a recently widowed man--Paul Russo--and his family, dealing with grief is one of the main themes, as is facing one's demons. In that manner, the tale is somewhat allegorical, although the vast majority of the plot plays out with Paul denying any supernatural involvement as he tries to move on with his life and his job as a realtor by selling a local mansion. "Stillwell", however, relied too much on horror tropes--lost loved ones who haven't moved on, haunted houses, good vs. evil--so the story was rather run-of-the-mill and not very memorable.

Fellside ★★★★☆
Fellside - M.R. Carey

The most fascinating thing about this book is the portrait of a secondary character, a nurse who joined the profession from a desire to help others. Starting with a struggle between duty and a legitimate anger over the crimes she believes were committed against a child, she gradually desensitizes herself to acts of negligence and violence that her self-righteousness allows her to justify, until there is little to distinguish her from the convicted felons that she tries to punish.

 

The main story was worthwhile, too, but the plot took forever to get moving. I enjoyed it overall, but this did not grab me and shake me the way that The Girl With All the Gifts did.

 

Audiobook, borrowed from my public library via Overdrive. Finty Williams provides excellent narration.

I Wish You Missed Me: A thriller set in California (A Kit Doyle Mystery) - Bonnie Hearn Hill

This was my second book by this author and with Kit Doyle as a character. I had a hard time with one of the characters in this book not trusting Kit. The author never really said why, I guess it was covered in another book.

Anyway, Kit's friend, Farley, is missing and no one has heard from him. He was supposed to go surfing but all of his surfing stuff is still at his house. So Kit is looking for him. She also has a cohort named Virgie who gets the laughs in this book. And for mystery, we have a van following Kit around. There's also some strange characters living off the grid.

I found the book to be entertaining and other than the trust issue with Kit, I enjoyed reading it.
