This was a short but delicious book, each word perfectly plucked and inserted with passion and will to tell a good story. I was completely mesmerized the whole time I read it, in fact my heart ached every time I had to put it down and always, there was deep anticipation when I got back into it, of what was going to happen next, I simply adore books such as this one, the reader is sucked in and given a whole world to swim in, with growing conclusions that will change as the novel progresses. I felt triumphant when I finished and was right about some clues and stunned by others, I had to go back and re- read some parts, seeing how they fitted with the end, and they did! Roy Connors is obsessed with getting the new prestigious job at a highly paced technology company, and nothing stands in his way until he exasperates himself and finally lands the job. Few sweet months into it he starts to notice the strains of trying to stay at the top and the one thing that gave him money and confidence is starting to oppress him and eat away at his sanity. His constant relying on a good coworker only makes him spiral out of control more when his buddy starts to focus more on a new love interest rather than helping Roy out, the distraction of the pretty female distances the men and that's when things go form bad to worse. Flashes on madness sweep through the couple as Roy appears to be hot on their trail during their island getaway and the incoming dark storm that is capable of whipping all life form it gives them even more to worry about. When emotions are on the line the men must find a way to salvage not only their friendship but also their lives as the storm threatens everyone even more than the truth they don't want to see. I don't want to spoil and say more, but I simply loved this story, it was on my mind for a long time after I got to finish it, I would revisit passages and chapters and get lost in the deeply scientific, psychological and physical world that Roy lived in, in fact not so different than our own.. the story had an air of magic through it, a force that kept stirring and rousing everyone once in a while and it gave everything a spicy kick that I enjoyed. I hope to see more form the author in the future, the man can write and his love for it shows on every page. - Kasia S.
