Given To Me For Review Billy Phillips has what is needed to save the world and he doesn't want the responsibility. Make sure you have your seatbelts on because you on about to go on a wild adventure with some mystery and a few twists and turns. As you read you'll find yourself being drawn in and becoming a part of the story as you root Billy on. During Billy's adventure he loses his girlfriend, his home and then his job. Now what? He is on the run ... Can Cavendish really want to help him open the box out of kindness? What is in the box that everyone wants? This book was a great read. Trying to figure out the answer as I read. It would make a great addition to your bookshelf an a great gift to give anytime of the year. I gave it 5 stars but wish I could give it more. I look for more from william Burnette.
This review is based on a free copy obtained directly from the author but reflects my own opinion. Bill Philips has recently had his girlfriend breakup with him. He works on a kitchen remodeling project and starts knocking through sheetrock. He finds a box embedded in the wall behind the sheetrock. There does not appear to be any way to open the box, which has symbols on it that look like jellyfish. Bill starts to push the jellyfish in and is able to open the box. All he finds inside are what appeared to be a long dead jellyfish and two rings. He puts the rings on and closes up the box thinking nothing of it. Apparently, the box had some kind of weird radiation and it is detected by the NSA. They send a team to investigate and the team gets overly aggressive with the assignment, killing Bill’s girlfriend (she just happened to come back to his house for some of her things) for which the police will suspect Bill. They then try to take down Bill but the mysterious rings seem to have a power that helps Bill escape from their clutches temporarily. They will stop at nothing to get back at Bill. Pretty soon life is hell for Bill as he is not only a suspect in a murder but the NSA is also after him thinking he is a spy with a new weapon. Jack has to go on the run. One of the NSA agents, Jack Cavendish (or just Dish) is totally against the way the NSA team is handling things and decides to work separate from them. Dish later learns that Bill may be an innocent pawn in something else and it will be up to Dish to help Bill and protect him from those that wish him harm. The book works because Bill and Dish are both very likable guys that the reader gets really absorbed in. Things happen without the usual results that the reader was expecting. There are also some strange personalities with Presidential names that have the same rings that Bill found (Harrison Tyler). The author does a good job of setting some tense scenarios. The book was perfect but it was fairly good and I give it a four stars.
