Out of seven billion people, one man has declared war on Mother Nature and plans to bring it to its knees.
Out of all the criminals in Los Angeles, he’s the number one target being hunted by the LAPD tonight.
And out of the entire LAPD, one officer is hell-bent on helping him complete his mission.
Frantic is the word I’d use to best describe this short tale as you are thrust into the action from the first page.
What I really enjoyed about this tale was how detailed of an image you were given as a reader. At times I did feel a little lost as it is a fast paced tale but this detail made it an interesting read
The plot itself was very original.. I’ve never read anything like it and I liked the idea one officer alone is trying to bring this man down the right way when the rest would most likely shot first and ask questions later.. it certainly raises questions on what your viewpoint is on things like this.
Did the book work? For me yes..yes it did. I did however feel I would have preferred a slightly longer tale so everything wasn’t so fast paced.. did this take anything away from the tale for me? No..no it didn’t
If you fancy a short read that will leave you contemplating mental health, police procedures & moral standpoints then give this one a go. Certainly not the usual book you’d pick up and that’s definitely not a bad thing.
My thanks to the author for allowing me to read/review your work
