I have read many electronic and self-published books in my time, either as a fresh set of eyes for final proofreading or as a courtesy to those who’ve asked me to tell them what I think of it. Sometimes it’s to review here, as is the case this time. Honestly, many self-published books, especially ones going to electronic publishing, are not very good. Once in a while, though, one comes along that you could swear was the e-version of a best-seller.
Dangerous Times is one of those books.
It’s a slow-starter, but somehow hooks you in anyway. It has a way of moving on to a different character’s perspective during the timeline right about when you’re wondering when the current one is going to actually do something. This has a way of keeping you hanging and keeping the story fresh at the same time.
Obviously, this being a thriller, there are no shotguns left on the shelf. Waiting through the suspense is well worth it. Not that it’s difficult.
The author, Phillip Frey, weaves the characters around one another and keeps the suspense going by creating a world where you know the people are as real as it gets, which makes the action, when it comes, as sudden and harsh as it gets. All thanks to that suspense leading up to the final explosion.
Deifinitely a good read, Dangerous Times is a great book. Make sure you have plenty of time when you open it up, though. You won’t put it down. You’ll find it on Amazon at this link and on Smashwords at this one.
