4.0 out of 5 stars Great escapism, 9 Feb. 2013
By 
This review is from: The Roswell Conspiracy (Paperback)
The Roswell Conspiracy immediately caught my attention with it's title. I love conspiracy theories and have read quite a lot on Roswell having spent my teens watching The X-Files.

Happily this didn't disappoint. It is a big-action blockbuster of a book, charging from action sequence to action sequence with explosions, shoot-outs and car chases galore.

The main character of Tyler Locke is the typical rich, good-looking, smart action hero you'd expect of such an adventure. His comic-relief sick-kick is similarly good-looking and smart apparently. Plus they both have military training making the plot points a bit more plausible.

But lets face it, this isn't a novel for believability or accuracy. The basic outline of the Roswell event, Easter Island and ancient Peru are taken and the plot is tagged along them taking what is needed for the plot and leaving what isn't. It's pure escapism in a book. You don't need to know anything or even really think to enjoy this novel.

The female characters are happily more than two dimensional and this did endear this story to me somewhat, there was a bit of depth and backstory behind the rollercoaster of action.

I would recommend this but only if you are looking for something light and enjoyable. I enjoyed it immensely and will definitely be reading more books by Boyd Morrison.
