REVIEW for White Sleeper

Thank you to PhenixPublicity.com for sending me this book.

TITLE:                      White Sleeper

AUTHORS:               David R. Fett & Stephen Langford

GENRE:                    Thriller

RATING:                   4 Stars

Okay, I have basically stopped reading thrillers because I found them to be boring and slow.  Well, with White Sleeper I need not worry.

This storyline moves at warp speed and I really enjoyed every minute of it.

One of our main characters is having a rough time and his career may all but be over.  However, he has a chance to redeem himself when the CDC sends him to Arkansas to look into some mysterious developments - which could possibly involve some bio terrorism.  He quickly teams up with FBI Paula Mushari and together, they are desperate to track down these diseases and prevent them from their deadly spread.

The author has chosen a white supremacist and bio terrorism, two extremely topical subjects that work very well in setting up a storyline that, frankly, at times, made my hair stand on end. I think what is the most appealing (and scary) aspect of this story is that it is completely plausible in "real life". 

As the "good guys" fight for control of the situation, the action gets more crazy and I found myself completely engaged in the "one upmanship" that was going on.  I was so frustrated, at times, with Paula and Dave who always seemed to be one step behind the "unsub".  Of course, this also means that I was completely clueless as to how this book would end - which is something I SIMPLY ADORE when I am reading a thriller.

White Sleeper is a keeper - I loved it because it is a wild ride and you have no idea where you will be getting of (or if!).
