A stand alone thriller but still in the similar style to the stories featuring Quinn. However, Wes Stewart is no Jonathan Quinn which is just as well; two Quinns would be one and half too many.

Stewart is just a cameraman caught up in the sudden appearance of a Navy F-18 on its last moments before it crashes into the Mojave desert, just where the film crew is in action. The story centres around the dead pilot in the aircraft who is not the same man seen by Wes and caught on film as he tries to effect a rescue before the aircraft explodes, compared to the pilot shown in the official Navy press release.

And so begins a stop-at-all-costs attempt to cover up the reasons behind the accident bringing Wes and his friends into a deathly conflict with the Navy hardmen. At the same time, because Wes is filming near his home town, a place he hasn't returned to for seventeen years, there are old scores to be settled, though, for a while, Wes is blissfully unaware that there is more than one person after his hide.

The first part of the book is a bit of a bore. Wes is too innocent, too trusting for his own good even as circumstances tell him he's going down the wrong path. Once he cottons on, however, the story picks up a pace and the action begins.

There are flashbacks to Wes's earlier life in town, where an event at that time plays a significant role in the whole story. I had the perpetrator twigged fairly early but certainly not the reasons why Wes was the target. As the story unfolds, the author keeps up the speed and the book fairly rattles along.

The denouement at the end is interesting. All the loose ends are tied up which makes for a clear-cut finale.

By Raven TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 22 Jan. 2013
Format: Perfect Paperback
Brett Battles is a new author for me and I'm always keen to discover new thriller writers, so was delighted to receive a copy of this gripping stand alone. Centring on the character of Wes Stewart, who finds himself embroiled in a military conspiracy, I fairly raced through this one, with its clipped chapters and cleverly measured twists in the plot to keep you thinking just one more chapter, just one more chapter...

I loved the cinematic set-up of the plot, with the story revolving around the desolate and sinister beauty of the Mojave desert, and the initial, seemingly foolhardy, approach by Wes, to the crashed fighter plane is edge of the seat stuff indeed. On his discovery that there is a conspiracy to conceal the pilot's true identity, Wes not only has to negotiate the threats to him and his fellow film crew, with his refusal to let things lie, but also finds some nasty secrets from his past life come to the surface as he retreads the familiar territory of his youth. The whole plot centres around the themes of trust and loyalty, as Wes hooks up with his former buddy Lars, now a naval officer himself, to uncover the conspiracy, but how far can Lars be trusted and who is seeking retribution on them both? As the net tightens in both strands of the plot, Wes faces some uncomfortable truths about his past as well as finding himself in increasing physical danger. It's a thrilling ride!

The characters are nicely drawn as the tale brings into juxtaposition the flighty world of Wes' TV crew and the diva antics of their presenter Monroe Banks, with the discipline and regimentation of the military protagonists.

This captivating page-turner is a pure delight and heart pounding extravaganza, which leaves you breathless as you become entwined within an absorbing tale. Fueled by fast-paced action and intense drama from the very first page, I was plunged into a nail-biting astonishing read that doesn't let go. Unable to put this book down for even a moment I was so impressed by an accomplished author who writes with such skill, assurance and sophistication as to send chills down your spine. Cleverly crafted containing such depth and substance, this spectacular suspenseful and fast-moving read is just outstanding! Dynamic and propelled by attractive, interesting characters this really is a powerful read and one that totally blew me away.

No return reads like a Linwood Barclay, with such breakneck pacing and as much action as a 007 James Bond film. The main protagonist Wes Stewart is thrown into the midst of a murderous conspiracy, as he survives a death-defying airplane crash, above the Mojave desert. Fifteen years later Wes finds himself up against the US military, the local police and a mysterious individual who is tracking his every move. During the plane crash he spent his last few minutes with the dying Pilot, who told him something of great consequence...something that could easily get him killed. As Wes tries to untangle a web of deception, lies and secrets surrounding the airplane crash, he doesn't realize that there is something sinister lurking within the shadows...one that he did not see coming.

This dizzying plot overflowing with innumerable, unexpected twists and turns certainly keeps you thinking! I was glued to each sentence as though my life depended on it, and was shocked by how remarkably inspired this book really is.
