    Loaded With Action & Suspense!

    I did not realize that this book was the third in a series and had not read the previous two. While Matt Wells, the main character, spends a large portion of the story trying to figure out who he is, I was just as confused as he was. This made for an engaging, if not somewhat strange, read.

    The stuff I enjoyed: This book is nonstop action and suspense and kept me on edge most of the way. The characters are intriguing and made me want to keep reading to find out what happens to them. The plot unfolds slowly, keeping me as much in the dark as the main character.

    The stuff I didn't enjoy: The extent and reach of the conspiracy theory aspect stretched believability a little far for me. While the pace was quick, the plot stretched out and took its time. Then, at the very end, everything sort of spiraled and happened at once, with the ending summed up in an epilogue. Some parts of the writing irritated me to the point that I'd stop reading. For instance, every single character says, "I reckon...", never "I think...", "I assume...", "I believe..." etc. I grew up and spent most of my life in New England and I'm quite familiar with the areas this book took place in. Never once did I hear someone from that area say 'reckon'. It's one of those regional words that does not belong in every character's vocabulary. This is a small matter and wouldn't likely bother most readers but I have a pet peeve for dialogue that is appropriate for each character.

    One of the best books I've ever read!

    It's a fast paced action thriller! It takes on multiple viewpoints and is filled with never ending excitement in each chapter. Not only will you not ever want to put the book down, but you will never guess what could possibly happen next.

    Action packed thriller!

    MAPS OF HELL by Paul Johnston is an action paced thriller set in today's America. It is well written with detail and depth. It is fast paced, action packed and will keep you spell bound and up at night. It is packed full of supsense, action, betrayal, brain washing, mind control, torture and survival. The hero must struggle to survive, clear his name of three grusome murders, elude the enemy, and try to find his beloved who is 5 months pregnant, missing, throught to be dead and under mind control also.He also is trying to regain his memory and figure out what it all means.This story is not for the faint at heart for it is full of mind bogging details. It is of why, who and what. If you enjoy action packed, fear seeking thriller you will not be disappointed in the book. This book was received for review and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and MIRA books.
