Book Readers Review
Patriot by A.S.Bond is a winner of an Honorable Mention at the San Francisco Book Festival 2014. A well deserved award. Bond's novel is a thriller full of intrigue, conspiracy, and suspense. An ambitious young reporter takes a dangerous and terrifying journey to the remotest parts of the world. Brooke Kinely receives information from a source in the Pentagon of a high ranking businessman's part in terrorism. A sophisticated weapon wipes out a U.S army patrol and Brooke tries to uncover a traitor and stop a devastating attack on America.
The author throws you straight into the action, which continues and even gets more exciting. The main players are authentic and technical aspects are obviously well researched. Bond’s creativity leads the reader to conjure up pictures with just enough descriptive writing without being too bogged down with detail. I love conspiracy theory, spy, political espionage, action, and suspense. All of these are in this book and more. Add a little personal experience and travel of A.S. Bond to the exciting mix. I give a rating of well earned five stars. Patriot should be on everyone's book shelf, read and even re-read.
