Chain Reaction by Richard Hacker was a great book. I read the 2nd book in this series and if you happened to miss that review you can click here to read it. Anyway let’s get on to this review. This book didn’t let me down. I love this series of books and the authors writing. I loved that I knew more of what was going on in this book and knew more about the characters this time around. I have to say parts of the plot of this book made me smile because I could never see it happen but even knowing that I still had to know what happened in this book and to the characters. This author does a great job of writing and I hope there will be more books in this series.
About The Book
When Nick and his partner in love and business, Theresa, take a client caught in a grudge between competitive bass fisherman, they soon discover he has unknowingly entangled himself in a plot by healthcare magnate, Bruce Reynolds, to take over Texas and secede from the Union. Hoping to pass the case to the Texas Rangers, Nick is instead recruited to head the Governor’s special task force. He learns Governor Fran Adamson’s major campaign contributor and secret lover, Reynolds, has a plan to resurrect the Republic of Texas. Faced with Reynolds’ hit woman killing enemies of the Republic and a remotely controlled drone air force destroying strategic targets across the state, Nick and Theresa make a desperate attempt to prevent civil war, the destruction of the Governor’s political career, and Dillon’s murder, while keeping their love intact. In his scheme for glory, Bruce Reynolds didn’t plan on Nick Sibelius, who wants the wannabe secessionist to know, when he says don’t screw with Texas, he damned well means it.
