    Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

    30 Days Hath Revenge begins with a man’s death in Buna, Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa. Colin Murphy and Ma’mum Khawaji were watching from a distance. They discussed the release of a disease as they watch the man convulse; Murphy was disappointed that the disease did not spread as fast as he’d hoped. At this point author, C. Kevin Thompson moves his tale forward in time four years. FBI Supervisory Special Agent Blake Meyer planned to retire in just a few short months. He looked forward to more time with his family. In Puerde Anapra, Mexico, are two men, coyotes, and gathered families that wanted to cross the border into the US. This was easy: men from the Middle East paid them to bring the families to the border but the coyotes did not have to take the families across the border. Each child was to have a dog collar in their hands. In Romania, Dr. Nicolescu was in his laboratory checking his experiment; he recorded in his notes the “contagion appears to be the most deadly when airborne versus previous testing.” When the CIA caught wind of the terrorist plot, Meyer was called in because of his past experiences and expertise. Would Meyer live long enough to retire? Would Dr. Nicolescu find a way to stop the exploitation of his work? How many would survive the plot to destroy the USA?

    C. Kevin Thompson is a master-mind at creating a story that holds readers captive throughout the entire book. I could not go to bed without reading every last word of 30 Days Hath Revenge. This tale is relevant to today’s society; one only has to listen to the news or read a newspaper to know the USA is the preferred target. This book has it all: terrorists, bioterrorism, guns blazing, and explosions. This is one you will not want to miss.

    High stakes are critical to good thrillers. They don't come much

    High stakes are critical to good thrillers. They don't come much higher than what you'll find in "30 Days Hath Revenge" by author C. Kevin Thompson.

    FBI agent Blake Meyer is looking forward to a career change. He's spent his time in the field and is looking forward to a nice, quiet desk job and time with his beloved family. But a murder in London changes everything. The victim was a former IRA member, someone Blake knew from the past life he'd hidden so well. Worse, the information trickling in suggests that someone knows about Blake's past and the operation he was involved in fifteen years earlier. This is information only a handful of people had access to. Is this murder a message to Blake? Who knows about his past? Why bring it up now, and for what purpose?

    As if things weren't complicated enough, intelligence points to an impending terrorist attack on American soil. Blake's desk job will have to wait. He's thrust back into the field, spearheading the effort to foil this attack and calling on all of his knowledge and connections. It's a race against time to stop a devastating plot that it may already be too late to prevent, and other than a few proven allies, Blake isn't even sure who he can trust.

    The terrorist plot itself is intriguing and reminiscent of Ted Dekker's "Circle Series" and Robert Liparulo's "Germ." It's biological terrorism at its finest. The simplicity of the plot is amazing, yet it promises a body count beyond comprehension. A very well conceived idea by Mr. Thompson.

    The action accelerates throughout the story as Blake pursues different leads, trying to track down the shadowy figures behind the attack and save untold millions. The ending is explosive, and right when you think everything is going to wrap up neatly, Mr. Thompson adds an unexpected twist that raises the stakes even higher.

    Characters are well-conceived and believable, with layers to their personalities. We see heroes with flaws, villains that are sympathetic, and Mr. Thompson's characters become living, breathing people that the reader can care about.

    Dialogue is solid and believable. Characters talk like real people. Always a plus.

    The plot is compelling and moves along at a crisp pace on multiple levels. Mr. Thompson has done plenty of research and it shows.

    I think theme is always open to readers- people pick up different messages- but I picked out thoughts on the power of a promise, the value of life, and questions of ethics and morality. How close would you get to doing wrong in order to do right? How close should we get to that line?

    I should mention that this is a Christian thriller, without profanity, bedroom scenes or excessive gore. Please DON'T let that deter you from reading it. Mr. Thompson has written a well-crafted thriller that is not preachy by any means. It's simply good food for thought in an entertaining package. If you haven't tried a Christian thriller, I challenge you to read this book. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

    "30 Days Hath Revenge" was a silver medalist in the Readers' Favorite 2013 International Award Contest and is well deserving of the honor. This is a very well-written book, worth reading and adding to your bookshelf.

    Five stars. Hands down.
