5 Stars from Novels Alive!
What seems like a standard investigation into the murder of a police officer soon morphs into a hunt to eliminate an international espionage threat. Author William McGinnis rolls out an action-packed thriller in Slay the Dragon.
With Adam Weldon on the case, the author delivers a storyline that uncovers another country’s stealth tactics to try and take down the United States. Although a work of fiction, the events packed within the pages have a strong scent of truth. From interfering in elections to corruption, this high-octane thriller takes readers from the streets of Oakland to an interrogation cell in China.
It’s a fast-paced thriller featuring high-tech weaponry and surveillance equipment. Weldon is in top form in this installment of the Adam Weldon Thriller series. He takes on master spy Gong Dongfeng and gets a peek into China’s strategy of unrestricted warfare. The conversation between the two characters, as Dongfeng details the lengths China was willing to go to in the assault on America’s democracy, proves to be quite chilling.
The conclusion adds a perfect twist to the story, effectively tying up loose ends. Weldon and his team of experts serve as rich characters ready to take on the next challenge. As a side note, the author includes a helpful character list at the beginning of the book.
Slay the Dragon takes readers deep into the world of espionage with events ripped out of the headlines. The author has successfully delivered another adventure for Adam Weldon fans.
