Book Review: Killer Moves

Book Description from Amazon.com
Bill Moore already has a lot, but he wants more . . . much more.

He's got a lucrative job selling condos in the Florida Keys, a successful wife, a good marriage, a beautiful house. He also has a five-year plan for supersuccess, but that plan has begun to drag into its sixth year without reaping its intended rewards. So now Bill's starting to mix it up—just a little—to accelerate his way into the future that he knows he deserves.

Then one morning Bill arrives at work to find a card waiting for him, with no indication who it's from or why it was sent. Its message is just one word: modified.

From that moment on, Bill's life begins to change.

At first, nothing seems very different. But when things begin to unwind rapidly, and one after another, people around Bill start to die, it becomes increasingly clear that someone somewhere has a very different plan for Bill's future. Confused and angry, Bill begins to fight against this unseen force until he comes to a terrifying, inescapable realization: Once modified, there's no going back.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed this high stakes action packed thriller. At first I was not exactly hooked, but I think so much of this comes from the difference between YA and adult books. YA novels always(almost always) suck you in instantly with something right away while adult books take time gather steam.

Once I got going in this book I was so involved with the plot that I had to find out the ending. I was not going to let this book just sit around while I did this and that. I sat down one night,  hunkered in my chair, and discovered what was in store for Bill Moore.

I found the plot line exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat. When things started to unravel I was quite interested in the events and how everything would be tied together. It reminds us how powerful people can be whether we like it or not.

If you are looking for a great action packed thriller this book will satisfy your cravings. These used to be the type of books that I read all the time. I got away from them over the years, but this book has reminded how much I enjoy a good action laced romp. I am glad I was introduced to this author and like most great books I have a feeling it will only be a matter of time until this turns into a movie.
