Bullet Rain by Robert Swartwood First, you do not have to read “No Shelter” (currently available on Amazon for kindle at only $3.99) in order to follow the story, but I will warn you, if you are not already familiar with book number one, this book will leave you with a couple of gaps. Not, in themselves detrimental to the enjoyment of the story, but if you have read the first book; you will get more out of this one, too. And, come on, this is Robert Swartwood; you should read book one just because of the great job he does on crafting his characters and stories. In this one, it starts off with what could easily be the beginning of a horror story, two tires flattened by a shooter a few miles out of a small town in the middle of nowhere, with no cell phone reception. It quickly grows into a criminal enterprise that James Bond would have been pleased to thwart, complete with a pretty girl in over her head. The title of the story “Bullet Rain” is very accurate and after reading the story, you will understand that phrase and why it fits so well. This is fast paced and clear, without the over simplification that often occurs with action stories (and movies). Tis will hold your attention, but I will admit, I was a little sad (even while understanding) when Nova killed his car.

I enjoyed this book very much. It turned me on to this author, and I bought more books by Swartwood.

A real thriller, Nova, what a man!

If you enjoy fast-paced adventure stories with just enough mystery to keep you wondering, this is the novel for you. It opens with our hero, Nova, getting the tires shot out of his $100,000 sports car but not knowing anything has happened other than that he got two flat tires. He hikes back into town and gets himself into some trouble with the locals which he manages quite handily. It’s not until the next day when he tries to get his car towed that he begins to figure out something is wrong. His car has been stolen and he very quickly figures out that something in this extremely small desert town is very out of kilter. That’s when the action goes into high gear and it doesn’t stop until the very end of the story. There’s nothing deep in this book, but the plot holds together very well and I resented it every time life intervened and I had to stop reading. If you like a book ala the Executioner but with a much better plot and slightly more realistic action, give Bullet Rain a try.

Book was good, but the pages stuck and wouldn't advance.

I would love to write a review, but after I paid for the book, it never appeared in my library. This is my second bad experience with B&N. It's an ebook!! What's the big secret? Send it to my library...or just email it to me.

The whole storyline is so improbable as to be laughable. Don't waste your time on this sillly story.
