Resurrection Express by Stephen Romano
Posted by Krystal Larson at 12:54 AM Thursday, September 20, 2012
Quickly drawn into the epicenter of a secret, brutal war between criminal masterminds, Elroy is forced to run for his life through a rapid-fire labyrinth of deception, betrayal, and intrigue— where no one is to be trusted and every fight could be his last . . . and the real truth hidden beneath the myriad levels of treachery may be too shocking to comprehend. . . .
Looking for a true suspense novel? Resurrection Express will deliver a heart-pounding, action-packed story. The reader will open the first page to a fight scene and a graphic one at that. Elroy, the main character, will both shock and fascinate the reader. He holds nothing back and fully allows the reader into his mind. He acts as the reader's guide through an almost surreal plot.
Elroy ends up in a jail cell. He can't do anything that he loves: hacking, cracking codes, fighting, etc... His anger at his belief in the death of his wife is overwhelming. When he receives an unusual visitor with an unusual request, he has no idea of the journey he is about to embark on. Elroy accepts the deal his visitor offers, especially when he learns his wife might still be alive. However, when Elroy is released from prison to begin his part of the bargain, he finds that the characters he meets and the adversaries he is up against just might get the best of him.
Overall, Resurrection Express kept me up till the late hours of the night. This book was impossible to put down; the scenes seemd to fly by and the plot constantly changed. The reader will not want to miss one minute. Elroy's character is not particularly likable, yet this does not detract from the story at all. Instead, he fits the setting and plot perfectly. The other characters are not any more redeemable than Elroy; many of them seem purely evil, perfect for a suspense novel. Stephen Romano has a way of writing that can give the reader the chills. This book is recommended to adult readers.
