My Rating: 4 stars!!!
Riley Covington has always played by the rules. Now he’s about to break every one.
Riley Covington’s comeback to football as the linebacker for Washington Warriors is cut short. First he gets in trouble with his boss and then he hears about a hostage situation involving Khadi Faroughi – the woman he loves.
Scott Ross, Director of the Counter Terrorism Division’s Special Operation Group Bravo and Riley’s former boss, doesn’t want Riley anywhere near the scene. But because it involves Khadi – and so many others – he goes anyway, with a dangerous plan to rescue them.
Considering I’ve read the first 3 books in the ‘Riley Covington Thriller’ series (Monday Night Jihad, Blown Coverage, and Blackout), when I heard there was going to be a new addition, I eagerly anticipated reading ‘Inside Threat’.
One thing I really like about this thriller is how the beginning of every chapter tells the reader what time, date, and location that chapter takes place. When books don’t provide that information, I sometimes will think ‘How many days later is it since the last chapter’, ‘Where are the characters now’ and so on.
I recommend reading the first three books in this series, but I feel that even if you haven’t read the rest of the series, you could still enjoy ‘Inside Threat’ because Jason Elam and Steve Yohn did a great job of filling in a lot of the background story.
‘Inside Threat’ starts out with just a hint of the suspense that’s to come and when you get about half way through, that’s when the main plot begins! I loved the story of redemption that was throughout the book.
The reason I didn’t give this 5 stars is because I found many moments in ‘Inside Threat’ very sad. I ended up getting teary-eyed a couple of times. There were also some gruesome scenes that I found a little disturbing.
I would recommend ‘Inside Threat’ if you love reading thrillers, but be forewarned – this is not a typical thriller.
