Title: Kill Devil
Author: Mike Dellosso
Publisher: Tyndale House
My rating is 5.
Jed Patrick thought that Centralia was behind him. He and his family had moved on and changed their identities to start a new life, but there were those in high places that found them. With his wife and daughter threatened, Jed was put in a position to commit an unthinkable and desperate act, but what choice did he have if he was to save his family? In this sequel to Mike Dellosso’s Centralia, Kill Devil proves to be even more suspenseful and action-packed than the first novel. And this time, the stakes are higher as the protagonist is manipulated through mind control by a rogue CIA agent who has plans to undermine everything that America stands for.
Mike Dellosso’s second suspense thriller revolving around former Army Ranger Jed Patrick continues the adventure and suspenseful mystery that made the first book, Centralia, so well received. The characters are realistic and well-developed. The story is superbly written. And the action is fast-paced. It was hard to put this book down once I started reading. Not all sequels live up to the first book of a series, but that is definitely not the case with Kill Devil. Dellosso nails it and drives it home with an exciting resolution that leads Jed and his family into a new life. Although the novel ends with the dismantling of the Centralia project, the arrest of people in high positions, and the promise of a new life for Jed and his family, I wouldn’t be surprised if a third Jed Patrick book would be available in the near future. If fact, I will disappointed if Delloso doesn’t write another in this series. I highly recommend this novel and look forward to more by this author.
