By: Jason Elam and Steve Yohn
Admittedly I was only interested in this because because I’m a hardcore football fan and it’s author Jason Elam was a football player (even though he played for the Denver Broncos and I’m a Kansas City Chiefs fan). The authors clearly did a good job of writing in an easy to follow way and developing the plot but their are a few drawbacks. Inside Threat is billed as a suspense thriller yet it really won’t keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s also part of a series and having not read the previous novels it’s somewhat annoying reading all the references to what happened in the previous books. What’s more, the book, like most fiction books, seriously lacks the element of unpredictability. There were no real twists or curves that will surprise the alert reader and the ending which was probably meant to be a shocker could be seen coming from miles away. Overall though it’s not a bad read. It’s just pretty average as far as novels are concerned.
