I have always loved reading thrillers because I am wheelchair bound and unlikely to ever see the places I read about. Very pleased to find a new author to pull me to and through another geographical setting. This was so exciting! It mixes travel and adventure with historical possibility. I sure hope Lars Guignard has a few more novels in him as I look forward to this mix.

First things first, the cover is in very bad taste. Yes, Michael and Kate are on a quest to discover a Nazi aircraft. Would you then project this symbol on a book cover? If I had not been asked to review the book and had stumbled across it, I wouldn't have bought it. Maybe, it is a gimmick to sell more books. Maybe, it is the author's attention to create controversy. Either way, and in my humble opinion, it's an extremely low blow.

Most parts of the book are very well-written and each character is able to captivate you and hold your attention. But there are also many sections in the book which appear rushed as if the writer ran out of words / descriptions. I did love the fact that the writer drew on his personal experiences to bring the book to life. It made most pages almost real.

In so many ways, this book was like the fresh, cutting edge style of Jason Bourne who crosses paths with James Bond and I could have almost loved it. But then, we're back to the cover ... so ...

Would I recommend this read? If the symbol is removed, then maybe. If not, not really.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4/5
Editing: 4/5
Formatting: 4/5
Pacing: 3.5/5
Offensive content?: PG13 to PG15 mostly for descriptive scenes that younger children may feel uncomfortable with.

Entertaining, quick changing with several twists, thoroughly enjoyable and quite well written. First experience of the author, unlikely to be the last, recommended.

Set in a world of espionage and gap year travellers, crossed with high tech and high stakes. An entertaining romp with twists and turns to keep you guessing ... who is on which side, how many sides are there? Well worth a read.

3 things I liked about the book ...
The foreign locations, Michael & Kate's relationship and the element of mystery. To be honest, it was the foreign locations that actually kept it going for me. The mystery and thriller parts came were very cliche and the writing style seemed forced.

Favourite character(s) ...
Michael Chase, of course. He seems driven by the intense need to get to the bottom of his father's death. He is strong in so many ways and yet, you feel as if he needs someone (this is where Kate comes in) to keep him going.

Favourite location / setting ...
Haven't decided between Hong Kong and Yengshao. But both locations are given adequate descriptions.

Favourite scene ....
When Ted and Michael are talking about Michael's father. It seemed a bit sad and yet this is where most of the mystery unfolds.

Favourite quote ... It didn't matter how good you were, it didn't matter how much you practiced, without that will, without that raw determination to put the other guy down, none of it was worth anything

Although I did like the story, I felt there was a little too much techno stuff in it that could put readers off. Some of it was, of course, necessary but it tended to go a little too deep. The hero was believable and a good character to follow. The double plot was very well done, also. I did manage to spot the traitors and wasn't too surprised with the ending. Made me want to read the follow on, which I will do. Recommended. (bill franks at: billfranks.co.uk)

The plot of Lethal Circuit revolves around a bi-axial set of events, a see-saw of action and consequence of which our main man Michael Chase is heavily involved in and crucial to the outcome of. We are introduced to Michael whilst he is backpacking in China, near to the place where his father mysteriously went missing and was presumed dead just over 6 months earlier. Michael discovers via a meeting with some extremely unsavoury characters in a mens bathroom that his dad may not be dead afterall, and also may not be who he's always maintained to be - one of the bosses of a leading American sportswear brand manufacturer. Indeed, it quickly turns out that Mr Chase Snr was in fact a senior CIA agent, tasked onto an investigation into locating some missing World War II Nazi aircraft technology, that is also of interest to several other secret service organisations and criminal gangs around East Asia.

Simultaneously, a satellite with the power to wipe out a very large area indeed is currently locked onto an uncontrollable collision course with the East Coast of the USA. Michael must find a way of stopping the satellite by finding the details of the missing aircraft technology, and along the way discover exactly who he father was and what happened to to him - including if he is still alive or not.

Promising, intriguing and compelling, the praiseworthy accolades unfortunately indicated rather more than what what I felt Lethal Circuit actually managed to deliver. As a regular reader of the thriller genre, Bond and Tom Clancy books in particular, I expected a gripping, exciting and fast paced tale full of twists, turns, shocks and surprises.
