The China Conspiracy by P M Terrell is an awesome political thriller that kept me reading beginning to end. I can see why her stories are so good. Take a gander at her bio and you will see what I mean.
The ominous opening and a bang bang has me riveted to the pages. P M Terrell wasted not ime in sharing the action and mystery.
Bu the time I got to Chapter 5, all the red flags are flying, waving madly. Am I right to be so suspicious of…well, you didn’t think I was going to tell ya did ya? lol
P M Terrell’s writing sets a pace that draws me so deeply into her world, I sometimes forget I am reading fiction.
Kit’s husband, is he a bad guy? Well, definitely not in the way I thought.
I love the way Kit handles her personal situation. Strong, dignified and FINAL! Have I made you curious yet?
It is P M Terrell’s ability to create such wonderful characters, with the writing and dialogue, that makes me feel as if I know them personally.
Danger, politics, conspiracy, traitors, greed, power hungry politicians, rigged elections…it almost makes me feel as if I am reading current events, even though it was published in 2003.
I am on page 323 of a paperback and my heart fell. Was her trust misplaced? Was he duped? The book is 349 pages and I wonder how P M Terrell is going to end the story in a way that will make me happy. BUT, I have no fear…well, almost no fear. She has never let me down.
If you are a conspiracy fan, which I sure am, this is a must read. I also take it as a dire warning of current and future events revolving around our most basic right…the right to vote.
P M Terrell kept me going from beginning to end. It was white knuckled reading that not only blew me away and scared the crap out of me, it pissed me off. Now that is what I call a great book. Emotions bubbling to the surface as I read through the pages…what more can I ask for?
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The China Conspiracy by P M Terrell.
Kit Olsen has fallen into a routine as a 17-year veteran programmer/ analyst for the CIA, wife to an increasingly absent husband, and mother to 16-year-old Tim. Then two of her fellow programmers are abducted and murdered, and her son is kidnapped. The ransom: a program written in Mandarin that was covertly intercepted by the CIA. Now in an effort to ransom her son, she is swept into a dark underworld filled with crosses and double-crosses, where no one can be trusted and nothing is as it seems. Kit knows the answer lies in breaking the Mandarin code, which leads to a political bonfire that she never could have imagined.
