Blog Tour: The Shepherd
About the Book:
Marcus Williams and Francis Ackerman Jr. both have a talent for hurting people. Marcus, a former New York City homicide detective, uses his abilities to protect others, while Ackerman uses his gifts to inflict pain and suffering. When both men become unwilling pawns in a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of our government, Marcus finds himself in a deadly game of cat and mouse trapped between a twisted psychopath and a vigilante with seemingly unlimited resources. Aided by a rogue FBI agent and the vigilante’s beautiful daughter -a woman with whom he’s quickly falling in love- Marcus must expose the deadly political conspiracy and confront his past while hunting down one of the most cunning and ruthless killers in the world.
This book was very well written and fun to read. I enjoyed delving into the mind of a madman..a killer, to see what was hidden under the surface. The action was actiony enough that I think that even the most hardcore fans of the genre would simply devour this one!
This is one complex book. There are so many layers to this plot that it would take a huge post to explain! This is GOOD! This isn't some fluff piece. This is a excellent example of the aciton-thriller genre! Ethan Cross is very adept at creating interesting characters that make you think and want to keep reading! This book was basically crack for me, which is weird because this genre usually doesn't have that type of hold on me.
I definitely recommend this book! Do not let the (I'm sorry Mr. Cross) cheesy looking cover fool you! The story inside is marvelous!
