A pulse-pounding, page-turning thriller involving corruption, secrets, and lies at the very deepest levels of government and media.
Late one night, investigative journalist Jack Logan receives a surprise visit from U.S. Senator Malcolm Phillips at his New York apartment. Disheveled and in a panic, the senator swears that he’s about to be murdered and pleads with Jack to protect his wife Taylor, who happens to be the only woman Jack has ever truly loved.
Days later, Phillips is found dead in a hotel room in Micronesia, the apparent victim of an allergy attack. While the nation mourns, Jack and Taylor race to find the one man who knows the truth. As they’re pursued by unknown assailants, their desperate hunt leads them to the Institute, an immense facility shrouded in mystery that has indoctrinated a generation of America’s political and media power players. Led by the enigmatic Damon Crosse, the Institute has its tentacles everywhere—but Taylor unknowingly holds the secret to the one thing that Crosse needs to carry out his plan.
Taking readers on a thrill ride from the back halls of Congress to the high-rise offices of Madison Avenue and a remote Greek island, The Network is a provocative, pulse-pounding novel that dares to ask the question: who’s really in charge?
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
Move over, Alex Cross and Stephanie Plum, Jack Logan is here and he’s absolutely amazing! L.C. Shaw has absolutely caught me, hook-line-sink with this one! From start to finish, I was wrapped up, wound up tight, and taken on a thrilling roller coaster ride of politics, death, who’s, what’s and why’s. That was a fabulous time! And, let me tell you. If you are like me and read this in one sitting, you’ll be kicking yourself for doing so because NOW I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MORE!
I love the way Shaw created Jack Logan. His character was absolutely awesome. I felt myself drifting into his shoes, becoming him, with each new page turn. The way he raced against time to piece the clues together, the way he uncovered the truth to the death of a Senator, was fantabulously done, and I loved every second of Logan’s action packed story. Let’s not forget Taylor, Logan’s former love. The emotions there, well let’s just say that it wasn’t hard to feel them as your own! Taylor’s character was also created beautifully and perfect for her role of helping Logan piece the puzzle together on what really happened to her husband.
I gotta say this. If you love Liv Constantine writing duet, then you will love L.C. Shaw. She’s one half of the Constantine duet and is magnificently stunning on her own! This book is filled with so much, from the twists and turns of corruption, to the ups and downs of politics, to a network of unforgettable thrills. If you are looking for a novel that will have you gripping the book with white knuckles, sitting on the edge of your seat, and wanting that glass of Jack Daniels because you just don’t know what’s going to happen, then this is a novel you don’t want to miss!
