PARADISE ISLAND

When an anonymous e-mail alerts UpLink Technology's operatives to suspicious activity on an exclusive island resort, Pete Nimec goes undercover to investigate.

I have read literally thousands of books but this one is a new one on me. Half way through the book and i am hopelessy lost with so many quick location changes combined with many more characters i have actually become confused. I am sorry but this one bombs out for me.

I wouldn't recomment this "novel" It is not written by Tom Clancy even though his name is displayed. Plot an characters not well developed and a big disappointment all the way around. I love this author, but only when he writes, not when the book is written by some unknown hacks. Don't waste your time or money!
