This review is from: Chasing The Storm: An Assassination Thriller (Rygg & Marin Thrillers Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Chasing The Storm is like an action-packed movie that takes you on a fun ride with interesting characters, varied locations and a compelling story. There are a few twists along the way and some are easier to spot than others, but the ending is cleverly written and fits the tone of the book well.

The intriguing real life event involving MV Arctic Sea is fascinating enough for those interested in international politics and the fragile balance between various superpowers. The author adds a bit of mystery and action to the mix, along with a possible explanation that is chillingly plausible. Yes, there are a few cliches here and there that are unavoidable, but the story flows as it should and you are kept at the edge of your seat as you get closer to finding the truth.

Though the action is spread across many countries, I liked the slow paced chapters where we get to see what happens on the ship, through the eyes of the young cook. They were short, refreshing and full of tension. There are some beautiful descriptions of Egypt, Greece and Cyprus, along with a few colourful secondary characters and well written action scenes that greatly enrich the story. All in all, the book is interesting, fun and will be enjoyed by fans of the genre.
