They believe his daughters disappearance is linked to the party incident so they start to investigate and snoop around for clues. Very quickly things develop beyond the normal murder investigation. Translated from German this is a very good thriller, a little predictable but very easy and exciting reading.

Missile Game by Glenn Shepard

The Missile Game (A Dr. Scott James Thriller Book 1)The Missile Game by Glenn Shepard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got what I hoped for - a fast paced thrilling book easy to read. However what I did not bank on was the main character Dr Scott James a plastic surgeon getting involved with terrorism and drone warfare. Don't worry I have not spoiled it. The plot is fairly straight forward but the locations and characters are not, adding a little mystery into this very exciting all action thriller. The subject matter is very up to date with drone with war and terrorism in the Middle East. Alpha Charlie is a U.S. contractor making a fortune from his hobby, a gamer at heart but now zapping real people on demand. You ask yourself the question how can a plastic surgeon get involved with all this? You will have to read it to find out.
