Overview

In this superb achievement by a master storyteller, a New York City police detective caught in a web of international terrorism and global intrigue becomes the central focus of an expertly told story that's so exciting it may actually make you sweat.

Chain Reaction features scenes rich in gripping narrative, striking action and punchy dialog in a plot armed with superweapons and power-mad bad guys who rival or exceed any encountered in real life. This amazing thriller offers a feast of surprising twists and turns that suddenly appear with mind-boggling rapidity that make it a milestone in the annals of thriller fiction.

Carried along by a strong, clear and powerfully cinematic prose line that benefits from extremely accurate portrayals of all the elements of the cop's, spy's and soldiers' trades, Chain Reaction is top-notch writing and a great reading experience. The opening and closing chapters go off like a shock and awe campaign, and nothing in between gives readers enough time to even catch their breath. The cumulative effect of Chain Reaction is overwhelming in the sheer impact of the powerful prose and the slick, commercial, though uniquely original plot and style.

You've read about the cop going after the evildoer before, you've read about the killer being tracked down and caught at any and all costs. Sure, but you have never read a story this exceptionally good. I am willing to bet on this. Based on a lifetime of reading thrillers I am hardly an easy to please guy. So when I tell you that this book knocked my socks off, you had better believe I'm telling you the truth. I don't personally care whether you read it or not, but I do strongly recommend it.

Five big stars for Chain Reaction by David Alexander. This was an impressive thriller. Built from the ground up with a concrete foundation of solid suspense authorship, Chain Reaction rose up from the street level of New York City's Midtown Manhattan to scale the heights of novel writing as it took off on a global hunt for a master terrorist by a conscience-driven cop. Jack Keller, the NYPD detective who pledged to bring to justice those responsible for a major hit on New York, risks his life and puts his career on the line to see that justice is done, no matter what cost. There was blood, sweat and tears on every page of this unforgettable novel. I just couldn't stop reading. Every time I put it aside, I found myself right back again, eagerly awaiting the next turn of its incredible plot. Here is a title that belongs on every true thriller -lover's shelf.

Just read this gutsy, crazy good thriller. So driven, so utterly driven, was this story that I actually started to cry at one point because I got so caught up in the struggle and pain Keller was going through in his chase after Vanesco. Let me just say one thing -- you don't shed tears because the book sucks. I think that says it all.
