A plot to kill a nation, hatched by a secret cabal of ex-cold warriors intent on finishing the war that defined their existence.
One man, who in a crisis of conscience, passes information about the plot to his brother, a shattered soul living on the edges of society.
When Kurt Vetter learns of his brother's murder, he has no idea how far he will travel, how much he will sacrifice, in order to uncover the truth. With the help of Amanda Carter, a shadowy figure from his brother's past, he races across the globe, staying one step ahead of a trained assassin, in a desperate bid to prevent the unthinkable from becoming reality.
Jennifer Shaw of Book Noise had this to say about The Patriot Paradox:
"Esmont can tell an action packed story like you wouldn't believe. The pace is set from page one and never let's up. I was concerned at first that references to the details of the CIA might get a little to detailed and cause me to lose interest but that didn't happen. Esmont definitely found a balance that allows anyone to pick up this novel and enjoy every page."
Leslie Wright of blogcritics.org writes "This is a great story by William Esmont, it is fast paced and gripping in areas. It is thought provoking and keeps you entertained. The characters blaze their way, and will be fun to follow in further works. If you like action and spy thrillers you will enjoy this rendition. Well Written, this book keeps you turning the pages. Once started I found it hard to put down."
Shelleyrae of book'd out Book Reviews and News said "Despite the non stop action, Esmont has taken care to develop believable characters, providing enough context for the reader to build a sense of their motivations. I did feel Kurt’s characterisation could probably have been stronger in that he seemed to move with the plot rather than direct it. His partnership with Amanda puts him in a passive role, particularly in the last half of the novel. I liked Amanda’s attitude, when Kurt brings her the information. She doesn’t hesitate to do the right thing and is smart and determined.
The Patriot Paradox is an engaging action spy thriller that has a great sense of timing. It’s a quick and exciting read, sure to satisfy the reader, especially at its bargain price of just 99 cents."
