A heart thumping sequel I am blessed to have an opportunity to read Mr. Peter Riva's book The Berlin Package. It is a heart thumping sequel from his previous book Murder On Safari. Just like the first book, I loved reading this book as well. The first few chapters are slow to prepare you for the real thrill as you read along. The adventure never stops until you reach the last page of the book. I love the twist and turn of this story. It is never a dull moment once you are in the best part. The book is hard to put it down. From Africa to Germany, the author blown me away with his travels. It feels like you are part of his adventures and the characters of his book. I highly recommend this book. Mr. Peter Riva never stop to amazes with his trailer and suspense book which I loved to read. Disclosure: I received the paperback copy of the book in exchange of my honest review.

I enjoyed the first book in this series and was curious where the author would take it next. Pero Baltazar, a film producer, thinks he’s going to be producing a film in Berlin. What he doesn’t know is, he’s been drawn back into work for the CIA and State Department. He’s to deliver a dangerous package. Failure to deliver will be his death. Peter gives you great characters. They have depth, are emotionally compromised, and he throws them into situations no one could be prepared for. The action is like shots of speed. Fast, violent, and intense. At any given time, someone could die. Bringing back old characters and introducing new ones, The Berlin Package has you deep in a thriller with ties to Nazi gold, dirty bombs, and danger around every corner. What I most enjoy about this author is his ability to write visually. I could see so many scenes like they were on the big screen. I even found myself trying to choose who would play the different characters. The intrigue starts right away, then the story slows a bit while you are given some pertinent details, and then picks up speed as events unfold. A thrilling read right to the end.

Peter Riva in his new book, “The Berlin Package” Book Two in the Pero Baltazar Series published by Yucca Publishing gives us another adventure with Pero Baltazar. From the back cover: A film producer, a handsome star, and an African safari guide must race to protect themselves and the world from a terrorist nuclear trade. Film producer Pero Baltazar thought he was taking a Berlin filming assignment. He needed the work, needed to get back in the saddle after fighting off a life-threatening experience in East Africa—al-Shabaab had attacked his crew, intent on a much larger terrorist attack. Suddenly he finds himself under orders from his part-time employers at the State Department and the CIA when he is handed a mysterious package. It’s an assignment he doesn’t want. The problem is, it’s a job contracted by mysterious patrons who are prepared to kill him if he doesn’t deliver. Pero—now in far too deep—turns to friends, old and new, to help him unravel the mystery of the package, uncover connections to Nazi concentration camp gold recently sold by the US Treasury, and thwart the ex–Stasi chief, now head of a powerful banking group. In this fast-paced sequel to Murder on Safari, Pero calls on Mbuno, his friend and East African safari guide, to anticipate the moves of his enemies as if they were animals—dangerous vermin—who have kidnapped both the film star and director. Mbuno’s tracking skills may keep them from getting killed—provided Pero can rope in more help and keep the CIA at bay. Pero Baltazar is trying to recuperate from his first adventure, “Murder on Safari“. You wouldn’t think that he could get involved in another global threat but that would be so wrong as the CIA want him to deliver a package to Berlin. Mr. Riva has given us a fast-paced thriller filled with action, and great suspense. “The Berlin Package” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Pero, Mbuno and all the rest of these characters are quite interesting and they hook you so that you want to read more about them. This book is going to take up all of your attention so start reading early because once you get started you will not want to put this book down until you actually finish. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from IRead Book Tours. I was not required to write a positive review.

The Berlin Package by Peter Riva is probably my favorite his books that I have read. It centers on the character by the name of Pero Baltazar. Pero thought he was going to Berlin for a filming assignment but he was in for a surprise. He is handed a package from the CIA, which he does not want. Who would want to be in his shoes? Especially since people are prepared to kill him if he is not able to deliver this package. This is a wonderful fast paced novel filled with adventure, action, and great adventure. I honestly did not want to but this book down. It was a wonderful thriller. This book was full of suspense. Just what a thriller needs. The characters were well developed and easy to relate to. For the most part the book is clean. It does have some language to it. Mostly it uses the words d* and h*, so not major words but these words I still consider foul language. It does use the Lord’s name in vain some. This I particular do not like. No doubt this is a five star book. As previously mentioned this book was so difficult to put down. This book had everything in it to make it a great thriller. I highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those who love a good thriller. He could be the next great thriller writer. I cannot wait the to read the first book in this series. This series can be read out of order. Peter Riva is a great writer. I hope he continues to write because he has a gift. I received this from iReads book tours for an honest reveiw
