I picked up this book a while back and I am so glad I did. It didn’t take me very long to figure out why it’s a best seller. It really is an awesome novel.
Scott Wolfe, a computer geek, security specialist and average Joe, finds himself knee deep in a quagmire of kidnapping, organized crime, murder, and international espionage when his ex-girlfriend is kidnapped abroad. Instead of fiddle-farting around and waiting for the CIA to find her, Scott Wolfe avoids them altogether, and with the help of some old friends and a gorgeous new friend, he sets out to find her himself.
Will he succeed?
This book rolls like a locomotive. Once it gets moving, it’s fast and non stop and all you can do is hold on and enjoy the ride. I loved the detail Shelton put into this story and am very impressed with his computer, military, and geographical knowledge. All of these things along with the ability to weave a fantastic plot, enhance the story and make this book a great thriller.
The characters feel real and are well developed, even the mysterious heroine.
The switch from first person to third person is difficult to pull off, but it worked quite well for this story and the author did a fantastic job. I really enjoyed this book and plan to continue reading the series to find out what happens next.
Overall, Waking Wolfe is my top read of 2015.
I give this one 5 stars!
