Read the Reviews
I appreciate all reviews, feedback and criticism. Some of my book reviews are listed below.
I am hooked on Marcus Diablo can wait for the next one!!!!
Wow! This is indeed a powerful thriller. From a simple family camping trip to horror involving terrorists and so much more. I neglected jobs in the house, dinner was late and I was sleep deprived while desperately turning the pages.
We are taken on a breath taking ride from the moment Anne went missing. Once Mark Diablo went searching there was no stopping him. There is so much I could say about this book but I probably wouldn’t do it justice.
Will Mark find Anne? What happens next? You really must read it for yourself. Absolutely a book to be strongly recommend. Story telling at it’s best. Can’t wait to read more by this author.
A thoroughly enjoyable page-turner. Plenty of twists and turns to keep you engaged to the end. The unimaginable is rendered believable in the author’s hands. Kind of reminds me of David Baldacci’s style. Characters are well-developed and situations credible; nicely crafted writing. I’m wondering if there’s a sequel in here somewhere as I’d like to get my hands on it.
Zip & Turn…Pages turned SO FAST…Reads Like a Movie!
When I picked up the book I thought I’d just glance through the first chapter and see what it might be about (this book belonged to someone else)…but it caught me from the start and I did not want to put it down. I got hooked and I bought the book right away.
The main character, Marcus Diablo, comes to life immediately and shares that life, takes you in, allows you to feel his loves, devotions, passions…and then his frustrations and pain. He convinces you he is “on a mission” that won’t stop till he gets his revenge…his, perhaps a bit too brutal, sweet revenge. You can’t help but root for him…and even though he seems a little superhuman at times…you believe in him. I can hardly wait for the next book. This would make a real sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat type movie. Amazing achievement for first time author. Great job Mark Shaff.
The action never lets up in this absorbing thriller that makes us wonder what we would be capable of under similar circumstances.
Shaff delivers a high-speed thriller that was nearly impossible for me to put down.
… a riveting page turner chock full of thrilling twists & colorful detail. A wonderful accomplishment for a debut novelist, looking forward to more.
