The Hunt for Danger based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Hunt for Danger by Peter G Bailey is a brave international thriller, dealing with age old popular conflict between the United States and Russia. I had always enjoyed political thrillers, as they make for very interesting stories and extremely twisted plots. The way the author did this, you can almost see it unfolding in front of your own eyes in real life. In addition to that, having read another book by the author in the past, I must say that I am a big fan of his style of writing. Now as for the book itself: it starts of strong with the President of the United States, Roland Bannerman, already in the middle of a tight situation. Aside from the intriguing newspaper headline that is the source of his current anger, we see a background of his personal enemies. We also see the lengths they go thru to contain a story that provided an unflattering view of the current US government. Although you see some of the major characters in the beginning, we don't actually hear of the protagonist Simon Vivian Denchfield until towards the end of Chapter 2. But then it will be explained that, you actually have already heard of him but under a different name! But regardless, you will continue to follow Simon's footsteps and see through some decisions he had to make to destroy a weapon that can wipe out the entire world. I like the length of the chapters; the book itself isn't as lengthy as other books, but it does possess a strong storyline. In my opinion, deep thinkers and political activists will especially enjoy this book because of its deep political roots and because of all the technical aspects contained herein. It doesn't make for a light, easy read - but a very enjoyable one nonetheless!
