Saving Rachel by John Locke

Title: Saving Rachel
Author: John Locke
ISBN: 97814401724
Publisher: iUniverse/2009
Pages: 147

Sam Case never imagined that his life would take such a turn in a space of few hours. He has just been with his mistress, and is kidnapped, witnesses two murders and then his wife disappears. He has to choose between his wife and mistress, which of them to save. Not a easy one for any one. A computer wizard, he has always led a good life. When crooks want him to give him the codes of the people he helped multiplied their money, he doesn't know what to do. Enter Donovan Creed, who is not what he seems to be.

What follows is a riot, and a ride where everyone is double crossing each other and only Sam seems to the good guy! He tries to keep his wits and when he discovers unknown facets of Rachel, his wife and Karen, his mistress, he doesn't know what to do. He doesn't wish for anyone to die and has to save his own skin too.

It didn't take long to finish this book, a definite page turner, and the ending is unexpected and very satisfying. This is the third in the Donovan Creed series and I got the other two too, thanks to the author, who sent me all three! I don't know what made me read the third in series first! Whatever the reason, I say go for it.

This sounds great, short and fast paced.

So you read this one by mistake first? lol

I am going to have a look at all 3 in the series now.

Amazon didn't have them as a series??? But all sounded extremely interesting, thanks for a great review.

Love the sound of this nail-biter, thanks for the great review. Do you think they need to be read in order?
