Mesmerizing story of trying to help someone, when they really need help.

When a friend is in need, Amy reaches out with help. Without realizing it, she is soon in way over her head, and in need of help herself. As the friend continues to take advantage, the situation spirals out of control.

This story is meant to be read by mature individuals. It is the story of abuse, and includes violence. Unfortunately, it is a story too often repeated in real life. It is based on a true story, one which many of us will see ourselves in. For me, it was difficult to read to the end, and it is even more difficult to write a review without emotions running rampart.

This story was written in hopes of helping other victims of abuse. It was not easy to write, it is not easy to read. Unfortunately, it is too often true. If you know of someone needing help due to abuse, please read this book. If you are helping those who are victims of abuse, thank you.

Fifty percent of royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to WEAVE (Women Escaping a Violent Environment)

If you know of someone needing help due to abuse, please read this book. If you are helping those who are victims of abuse, thank you. I know I said this is an Adult book, but there are teens and others who would benefit from this story. They are the ones without hope today, who really need someone to say “It can end.”

Disclosure: I was given my copy of this book by the author as a review copy.

Action, mystery, suspense, all rolled into one really good story.

A technological thriller, this is the story of how one man hoped to make a difference. What do you do when you have invented life-saving surgery that someone steals. How do you cope when the most important person in your life dies, because bureaucrats in government decide to help the thief?

I found this story particularly intriguing considering much of what is happening in United States government politics today. It is as much the story of “doing the right thing” as it is the story of government gone wrong. I love the persistence of the hero in this book, Hank Rangar. He never gives up, which would be so easy to do under the circumstances.

To be able a write a story of the latest or possible in the future technology and keep it in the modern age must be very difficult. The authors never state this technology is even plausible in today’s world, but the reader is so drawn into the story that they might have difficulties separating fact from fiction.

If you enjoy modern technology fiction, this book fills that need nicely. It is fast paced, well written, and yet leaves enough to the readers imagination to hold their interest. I am looking forward to the next book by these authors.
