Deadly Echoes: A Novel (Donovan Nash)
Deadly Echoes continues the story of Donovan Nash, this time facing an attack from the past. For those of you new to the series, our hero was born into a rich family but, for reasons which need not concern us here, he felt forced to fake his own death and continue life as Nash. Now a man who knew him in that previous life comes back for revenge, not just against the man, but also against the new eco-friendly organization he has created, and all his immediate family and friends.
The result is non-stop action building up to one of these climaxes you could well see Hollywood latching on to and doing with great style and an awful lot of CGI. To be clear, this is not a book you read for plausibility. It starts off with our terrorist-inclined villain videoing himself dismembering fishermen in an attempt to frame Nash’s organization for these deaths. More deaths follow as bullets fly, bombs explode, and general hand-to-hand mayhem ensues. In fact, as a thriller plot, this just keeps turning up the pressure until that great finish. My only reservation is the somewhat unlikeable quality of Donovan Nash. If you can get past that, this is a top-class thriller.
