Thank you for coming by and reading my review for Caged Lightning by Brent Rock Russel M.D.. 

About the Book:
Available on July 12, 2016.

“Like an arrow in the hand of a warrior, so are the sons of those who have been shaken. Hurl lightning bolts and scatter them. Shoot your arrows and rout them.”- King David, circa 1000 BC

Wyatt Striker hated to admit that he was nervous. A senator he had treated in the ER after a mountain biking accident had invited Wyatt and his wife to a party at his vacation home near Tijuana. Unfortunately, he did not mention that a dozen of California’s most influential people would be there, too. He knew he had faced far worse situations during his glory days in special ops, but he hardly thought his training would help with this one.

When he arrived at the house early, however, he was caught off guard by what seemed to be a two-bit burglar. The thief’s behavior, which included nearly putting a peephole in Wyatt’s cranium, suggested something much more dangerous.

Shaken, he returned home to find his sister-in-law tied to a chair in the kitchen, his son gone, and a ransom note on the table. As he attempts to connect the dots, he discovers that the captor is less interested in the money than in Wyatt. Confused and determined, he sets off to unravel the web of leads and players. Will his calm and careful mind and the resources he can muster be enough to outsmart the captor? Will he discover the deadly identity of his adversary before it’s too late?

In this fast-paced action adventure, Brent Russell weaves a tapestry of mystery, suspense, and good-old-fashioned fight scenes described in a uniquely thrilling voice.

My Review:
This book is so detailed with the gruesome bits which probably comes from the authors ER work. I really liked this ghastly aspect of the book. Now this book is not about the ER, but it is packed full of high adrenaline incidents just like an ER. The characters are developed and interesting. The plot is action-packed and full of twists. The mystery will keep you reading until you get to the last word on the last page and leave your mind reeling. Honestly, I am happy this book is going to be a series because I am not sure how the story will go which is refreshing. This is a well-crafted thrilling, suspenseful, and fast-paced mystery book that all will enjoy.
