Warren & Bailey Make A Great Thriller Team
4.5 out of 5 stars
A plane crashes in the desert – we’re not sure if anyone survives (we’re told that a major player dies on it). The plane is also carrying much-needed medicine to a disease-torn area. On top of all this, there was something even more important on this crashed plane – a data stick that could bring down some high up people and ruin a major political relationship. Since dropping out of the sky, anyone who has seen the crash or the dropping plane has been kidnapped or murdered. The US sends in Thomas Caine, overall BAMF, and current assassin to try and find more info.
Sandfire is not my first Caine book, but it is my first book co-authored by Aiden L. Bailey. While talking about the upcoming release, Warren mentioned that I should be excited about Bailey (and now I can see why). Sandfire was a blast from beginning to end. A Bourne-like thriller where Caine is able to get in and out of situations that you’d never expect.
The writing is fast-paced and allows for little or no time to think about what is going on. Warren and Bailey keep the pacing fast to allow for a quick story without losing out on the important stuff. In yet another “Caine before he was betrayed” book – there is a further insight into his past and more about who he really is as a person. I love getting that background info and learning that Caine is a deeply good man who is forced into bad situation after bad situation.
There is trickery and deceit and lives are at stake. Terrorists will have their heads roll and Caine will do everything he can to keep his promises.
A fun read from beginning to end that I flew through.
For some reason I love this line:
