Operation: Hail Storm by Brett Arquette

My review today is on the Techno-Thriller, Operation: Hail Storm. This book was sent to me as a complementary copy. I wasn't required to review it. It isn't my normal kind of book. I usually review Christian fiction but this is definitely not a Christian story by any stretch of the imagination. There is some foul language but but not excessive. There is some sex but not in a descriptive way. I did like the story; it is well written, well researched, and full of technology that I assume will one day be doable.
Marshall Hail lost his wife and twin daughters in a tragic international event called The Five. These last two years he has centered his life on business. He has removed all of the nuclear waste from the United States and has found a way to harness it and made a Wave Reactor. In this process he has made a vast fortune. He has also built several ships to carry the waste. In those ships he has made them totally self-sufficient. He has taken in a lot of young kids that were effected by The Five. He provides school for these kids. Together they have built a system of drones to do anything that they need to do including executing the men and women of the FBI top ten terrorist list. When his team successfully assassinate the number one terrorist and he asks for the twenty five million dollar reward he comes on the radar of the President, the CIA, FBI, and military. The President asks him to perform a task for her; find the missile part that was sent from Russia to North Korea and destroy the nuclear missile parts before they can build nuclear missiles to send to the USA. He is willing but the CIA insists he must take a CIA operative with him. They name the  mission Hail Storm.
CIA Agent Kara Ramey is an extremely beautiful. That is why she has risen in the CIA. She uses her beauty and sex to get information from a Russian Operative. This information is what has caused the CIA to use Marshall Hail and his team. Kara's boss believes Kara will be able seduce the man so he places her with Hail on his ship. Hopefully she can get information from the man
A struggle of power and trust. Everyone holding back vital information from the others. Politics at it best. The CIA, FBI, and Military all decide they need a back up plan if Hail Storm can't deliver. Watch what happens when they get involved in the operation.

Credible Threat by Heather Woodhaven

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Credible Threat. I really enjoy Heather's work and this is an excellent example of her books. This story is well written, action packed and full of suspense. Heather's faith is woven through out the story. Don't you just love that? You will fall in love with her characters; well not all of them.
Rebecca Lynn became an accountant because of all the threats that surrounded her family because of her grand father being a federal judge. Her father moved them far away from their home and made her promise to stay away from law enforcement; so when she is attacked in her grand fathers home everyone believes it is because of her grand father's job. A US Marshall is assigned to protect her. Why did he have to look so good and attract her like he did? She feels that someone's trying to kill her is due to the audit she is working on, not her grandfather but she can't seem to make them believe her.
US Marshal Kurt Brock is sent to find out who wants Rebecca dead and to protect her. He had just finished a case but was unable to get any rest. Exhausted Kurt is informed that he must keep his relationship strictly professional but to do whatever it takes to protect her and find the killer. Could this killer be from her job and not her grandfather? Why would anyone want to kill an accountant? How is he supposed to stay away from her when he is so drawn to the feisty little accountant?
A great struggle to keep one step ahead of the killers. Both Kurt and Rebecca have a lot of baggage to deal with but the attraction is almost overwhelming. God has a plan for these two, a good plan and not for evil. God has a plan for you too, a plan for a hope and a future. Give Him your heart, trust Him, and watch Him turn your life around.
