Race Amazon grips the reader right from the very first pages with the main character, James Pace, going through a traumatic and life threatening experience. He is then catapulted from a rather mediocre existence to stardom fuelled by media interest in his selfless, heroic act.
His near-death experience and subsequent superstar status gets him involved in a challenging but worthwhile cause for charity to race in the Amazon but ends up instead, racing for his life.
This book is full of non-stop action and heart pounding suspense, plot twisting turns that keep the reader riveted and believable characters that you get to know well and care about.
The author, Andy Lucas, is an exceptionally talented writer with a vivid imagination and a writing style that keeps the reader captivated. His descriptions of the Amazon made me feel as though I was actually there. It is obvious that a lot of care, effort and research has gone into this book as there is meticulous attention to detail together with an extensive knowledge of firearms and aircraft.
A seriously exciting read with a riveting storyline. Action, murder, assassinations, double-crosses, suspense and more. An exceptionally well written and cleverly plotted book which culminates in a roller coaster of a resolution. A real page-turner by an extremely talented and creative author.
I highly recommend this book and can't wait to read the next installment of James Pace's adventures, Skeleton Gold.
