    Investigate This

    A very quick and short read, the concept of the Conspiracy series has great appeal to me and excellent potential. It's very 24-esque - meaning there will be twelve books over the course of the year each covering one month in the life of Callum as he attempts to solve the mystery of the Ormond Singularity.

    As is the case with most mystery stories there is a bit of violence. There are mobsters and any number of nefarious individuals all chasing after Callum and inevitably friends and family get in the way. The level of violence and criminal activity in the story are befitting the plot it is not overwhelmingly excessive or needless.

    One of the downfalls of this story is that it was extremely predictable. What I can't decide is if that predictability is included in the plot as a way to deflect the reader from what is really going on. Will we find out in hours two or three that what we were told or thought in hour one is completely false? There are still eleven books worth of story to tell so it can't be that everything is going to be laid out before us in book one. At least not if the author doesn't want us to get bored and abandon the series, that is.

    At this point, it's certainly, intriguing enough to want to stick with it to find out.

    Where did the book excel? The author did a great job of creating a cliffhanger ending that has readers on the edge and wanting answers that may be provided in book two. Having said that, I think it's safe to make some assumptions on at least one of those answers. The story would be considerably altered if the immediate resolution didn't go a certain way and the reader will know that as they put book one away and wait for book two.

    One of the other elements I enjoy (and the one I liked most frankly) about this story are the relationships Lord built between Callum and his best friend Boges as well as his relationship with his mother and sister. Callum has such love for them that he's willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good of seeking out answers. And Boges has personality galore. He could turn out to be my favorite character in the series. I'm just hoping he is who he says he is!

    While this isn't the most suspenseful book I've read I believe that it's compelling enough to continue the series. I do want to know how it progresses and where all the loose ends get tied up. I also believe that it's target audience (older pre-teens and teens) will likely enjoy the fast paced atmosphere and action based plot.
