This review is over ‘Screenshot’ by John Darrin. This novel was published April 1st 2009 by Kunati Inc.
James Patterson’s “cookie cutter serial killer” meets Tom Clancy’s Net-Force!
What do you get when a reporter, an F.B.I agent, and an eccentric scientist walk into a serial killers lair? WOW! Fast pace action, harrowing twists and turns, and a nice vacation from reality! Against his own will, Reporter Seth Mathias is mysteriously invited by email to attend the live streaming video execution of a reported drug trafficker. As the F.B.I and the nations news media becomes involved the serial Killer who calls himself “screenshot” begins to terrorize America through his various machinations and psychopathic methods.
Finding myself sometimes rooting for the bad guy it was interesting to see the author use today’s technology to drive a psychopaths agenda. A great read to pass the time of day and immerse oneself in Screenshots world. Even though the story evolved around one key figure it was refreshing to see the duties of a hero juggled between a few individuals throughout the story. These unlikely heroes kept me guessing on who might stop screenshot which in turn added suspense and mystery to the plot.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a new author. John Darrin pens a refreshing look at the techno thriller genre with fast-pace action and roller-coaster dips and dives.
