    Could not put it down.

    I took the book with me, when I traveled from Edinburgh to Montreal. I read it during the whole flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. During my five hour stop in Amsterdam, I sat in a coffeeshop and read the book.
    I only put it down for the check in for the flight.
    During the eight hour flight to Montreal, I didn't put the book down ONCE. I was so zoned in that the time passed that I didnt even noticed we were landing, until the stewardess told me we are landing.
    It was just that good.
    Wired Kingdom by Rick Chesler shouldn't be missing in ANY library.

    I am now reading it for the second time.

    Great book. Very suspenseful and very well written. I was captivated by the story within the first couple pages wondering where this story was going. The story is very well paced and kept my heart racing.

    I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys thriller novels.

    Immediate Involvement!

    I read the first two chapters of Rick Chesler's Wired Kingdom in a pre-release sneak preview and knew I had to read the entire book. I ordered it immediately and actually received it four days prior to its release date. In spite of a heavy workload, I read this book in one week.

    Although there are several characters in the story, Mr. Chesler does such a good job of defining each one that I never once had to check back to an earlier page, wondering, "Who is this, again?" Each character has their own 'story' but each story is perfectly entwined to the entire book.

    The main character of the story is actually a Blue Whale, to which an attached web cam allows internet and television viewers access to the seas. Even if the reader does not have a marine background, Chesler gives such perfect definition of the massive mammal and its environs, it is easy to imagine oneself in the water watching the story unfold.

    In a world in which murder has become all too commonplace, Wired Kingdom brings a new angle to solving the crime, a murder at sea caught by the web cam. The research done by the author was obviously extensive as every bit of technology is described so well, the reader has no problem understanding just how it works. The story's end, while surprising, makes perfect sense retrospectively. Given the characters, I can't imagine it any other way!

    Personally, I look forward to more novels by Rick Chesler. His first is so enthralling, I have already purchased several more to give as gifts. This book was the perfect way to start my summer reading!
