Having found this book on a shelf in a private cottage in Tobermory, I was pleasantly surprised. I’d never heard of Steve Thayer, although he’s reportedly a N.Y. Times bestselling author.
For anyone who is looking for suspense thriller that’s not a cookie-cut tale like many of Patterson’s, this novel is a good read.
The story jumps back and forth from Nazi occupied Germany to the Kennedy assassination era, with a Deputy Sheriff from Wisconsin narrating the tale.
The characters are interesting and the plot keeps you guessing until the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Edmond Gagnon‘s review

The may be no light tomorrow, but there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel waiting for these two young authors.
Although I’m a big Star Trek fan, and I am open minded when it comes to space and the supernatural, I don’t read much science fiction.
Having said that, I truly enjoyed all but one of the stories in Christian Laforet and Ben Van Dongen’s No Light Tomorrow. The material was fresh and thought provoking. I particularly enjoyed Digital Heaven, and how it’s implications showed just how gullible the human race can be.

Edmond Gagnon‘s review

I picked this book up in a small store in Italy, one of only a few English books there.
It was a pleasant surprise and a good read…a bit slow to start, but once I had an idea where the plot was going I had to finish it. The author was a real-life sex crimes prosecutor, who draws from her own experience to tell you a good story.
A very good read.

Pursuader – Jack Reacher

If I could only get the vision of Tom Cruise out of my head when I’m reading Jack Reacher novels. I like his work, but surely they can find another actor who’s at least a foot taller. And Cruise is returning for another Reacher film.
Anyway, I enjoyed the story in Persuader, and Reacher’s usual antics. My only complaint with Lee Child’s writing is that he goes overboard with details. I don’t need to spend two pages finding out how someone exited a car door.
Being a writer, I have to wonder how he gets away with run on sentences, with no punctuation, for up to a whole page at times. Fame and style I guess.
Enough said. The book is a good action thriller that has me looking forward to my next Reacher escapade.
