The Judas Game: A Shepherd Thriller by Ethan Cross @TheStoryPlant Review



The Judas Game: A Shepherd Thriller   Coming October 1, 2016
by Ethan Cross (Author)

When a correctional officer climbs to the top of his watchtower and opens fire on the inmates and guards, federal investigator Marcus Williams and serial killer Francis Ackerman Jr. must join forces again to unearth the truth behind the incident. What they find is a serial killer using the prison as his hunting grounds. But the Judas Killer's ambitions don't end with a few murders. He wants to go down in history and has no reason left to live.

With Ackerman undercover among the inmates and Marcus tracking down the mastermind on the outside, the team must learn the identity of the Judas Killer and stop a full-scale uprising that he's orchestrated. But the more they learn about what's happening at the prison and why the more enemies they must face. From inside the overrun facility, Marcus and Ackerman must save the hostages and stop an elaborate escape attempt while trying to determine how a rival corporation, the leader of one of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations, and an inmate with no identity only known as Demon fit into the Judas Killer's plans.

Launching a bold new cycle of novels featuring The Shepherd Organization, The Judas Game is searing, mesmerizing fiction—it's Ethan Cross at his very best.


Bestselling author Steven James says, "Ethan Cross is one of the sharpest emerging writers on the thriller fiction scene today.” Bestselling author Anthony J. Franze concurs, saying, "Ethan Cross is one of the best d*n writers in the genre.” They're not alone. Others have compared this international bestselling author to James Patterson and Thomas Harris. Ethan Cross's work is an unforgettable combination of high-intensity thrills, memorable characters, and complex scenarios. The Bookworm called his first bestseller, The Shepherd, “a thrill ride that takes off from page one,” and that’s the experience you can expect from everything Ethan Cross writes.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  You can read this as a standalone.  If you like the author, then reading the series from book one, will be the best option so that you have time to get familiar with the characters and previous storyline.  You have to really enjoy the genre because this book is similar to many out there.  It does have its own appeal and a good amount of thrill level.  This is not recommended for children.


A Red Dotted Line by Simon Gervais Review .@TheStoryPlant

(The second book in the Mike Walton Thriller series)
A novel by Simon Gervais

Terrorism became personal for Mike Walton on his last mission―a mission that resulted in triumph...and devastating tragedy. Now the stakes have been raised again.

Mike and his wife Lisa―both covert assets of the International Market Stabilization Institute, a privately funded organization operating outside official channels to protect North America's financial interests―are sent to Russia after an attempt on their superior officer's life. It is a mission fraught with peril and one that becomes exponentially more dangerous when their covers are blown within hours of setting foot in Moscow. Now, they are being hunted down by the Sheik, the terrorist mastermind behind the kidnapping of Mike's father, Ray Powell, and to the treachery that turned Mike and Lisa's lives upside down.

To make matters worse, there are clues that Biopreparat―the former Soviet Union biological warfare agency―has been resurrected and is about to launch a strike against the United States. This forces Mike and Lisa to make the most difficult choice of all. With Ray Powell's life hanging in the balance, and the slightest mistake potentially igniting the next World War, nothing is what it seems.
And the line between friend and foe is blurring.

A stunning experience by one of the hottest voices in thriller fiction, A Red Dotted Line takes readers on an unforgettable ride.



Simon Gervais is a former federal agent who was tasked with guarding foreign heads of state visiting Canada. Among many others, he served on the protection details of Queen Elizabeth II, US President Barack Obama, and Chinese President Hu Jianto. He has also protected the families of three different Canadian prime ministers. Prior to this, Simon spent five years in an anti-terrorism unit and was deployed in many European and Middle Eastern countries. As you can imagine, this makes his thrillers stunningly real.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Yes, you are getting a remarkable book with a blend of great details and suspense.  I think the author wrote such a new take in the realm of thriller fiction that I was able to read the book without thinking hmm, this sounds familiar.   This is a book for the grownups.
