About the Book:

Charlie Giles is at the top of his game. An electronics superstar, he’s sold his startup company to a giant Boston firm, where he’s now a senior director. With his dog, Monte, at his side, Charlie is treated like a VIP everywhere he goes.
Then one day, everything in Charlie’s neatly ordered world starts to go terrifyingly wrong. His prestigious job and his inventions are wrenched away from him. His family is targeted, and his former employers are dying gruesomely, picked off one by one. Every sign, every shred of evidence, points to Charlie as a cold-blooded killer. And soon Charlie is unable to tell whether he’s succumbed to the pressures of work and become the architect of his own destruction, or whether he’s the victim of a relentless, diabolical attack.
In a desperate struggle to save his life, Charlie races to uncover the truth, all the while realizing that nothing can be trusted — least of all his own fractured mind…

My Review:
Okay, ya’ll know I love to do honest opinions but HATE giving bad reviews. So, my honest opinion is this: this novel, this debut, by a surely talented author, was okay. Simply okay. But, that is just this one reader’s opinion. I can’t really pinpoint what it was lacking for me. The characters were great, the plot line was very intriguing. But, there was just something missing.

That being said, I will not discourage anyone from reading this. The psychological, edge-of -your-seat thrills is definitely there, if you love that kind of novel. The use of the language is there as well, but if you love this kind of novel, it would be easy to over look.

All in all, this is a 3 star novel that I encourage everyone to try. It just wasn’t my taste. I know that there are lots of readers out there who will sit down, open this debut novel, and be so completely pulled in, they will feel a part of the plot as if Daniel Palmer wrote it for them!
