Review The Demeter Code

The Demeter Code Review

The Demeter Code (An International Spy Thriller)

available at Amazon
By Russell Brooks

In the Demeter Code Ridley Fox is back working with Doctor Nita Parris attempting to find out why a man on the world’s terrorist list wants a hard drive. The hard drive and other operatives lead Fox and Parris to a newer bigger threat on America. But who and what their motives are is the biggest surprise for the agents, who must try to stop them before they kill again this time on American soil.
One of the criticisms I had of Russell Brooks’ first book in this series, which the character of Doctor Nita Parris needed fleshing out and you learn more about Nita’s background in this book and this makes the book more satisfying. Russell Brooks took the time to research and it shows in every loving, action detail. The weapons are believable and even scary.
I enjoyed reading this page turner and would recommend this book to those who enjoy a rich story with love scenes, combat and fight scenes as well written dialogue and passages.

Review Unsavory Delicacies

Unsavory Delicacies Review
Unsavory Delicacies
Available at Amazon

Two word  Review- Deliciously Good

In Crème Brûlée
Monique Beauvais attempts to romance a software genius to sell her technology that can control drones and will dispose of him once she gets it.
In Shashlyk and Morezhenoe
CIA operative Ridley Fox and his team attempt to get documents much like ‘Ethan Hunt’ in Mission Impossible in disguise. What Ridley finds is a bombshell.
In To the Last Bite
A food critic gets a surprise.

A lot of this book has deliciously dark humour that most readers will relish and add to the books enjoyment.  These stories are a delight and fun to read.

Review Pandora’s Succession Review

Pandora’s Succession Review
Pandora's Succession (An International Spy Thriller)
available at Amazon 

By Russell Brooks

Ridley Fox is an agent with the CIA; his worlds collide as he is sent to investigate the consortium Arms of Ares who is also responsible for the death of his fiancée. Arms of Ares has weaponized a deadly virus that if unleashed could end the world. Misinformed and hoodwinked at every turn Ridley must use all his abilities and intelligence to decipher the truth and save the world.  
Russell Brooks has created an action packed book that begins and ends with conflict. The book is well researched as details seem to ring too true. Reading the book the reader can imagine all of this happening especially given the recent Ebola news and how that is spreading. Mr. Brooks does keep the reader in suspense; the fight and confrontation scenes are detailed in such a way that I could picture them all and seemed very authentic.  I also liked the selection of names and the villain’s names specifically, but I would have liked more information on Doctor Nita Parris and a little more delving into her character so I could have understood her better.
A very enjoyable action thriller as someone who enjoys reading ‘Jack Reacher’ books and the ‘Bourne’ books I think readers who like those books would enjoy this one.
