See Glass by Ido Graf

Sea Glass - My best fiction books 2020

The book See Glass by Ido Graf, is a fast-paced action thriller which has been described as having a style like Tom Clancy.  I agree with that but I would also say, Frederick Forsyth as both authors researched their novels in great detail,  as does Graf. They all intertwine fact with fiction giving novels of profound insight and realism.

Sea Glass is a contemporary thriller set in various exotic locations such as North America, Europe and the Middle East.

The story begins in a small Andalusian fishing village when a redundant reporter meets a former Foreign Legionnaire by chance. The story he is told appears to be fictitious, but as the journalist begins to dig deeper  …the boundaries between fact and fiction begin to blur and the danger increases.

A top story for men and women that encompasses secrets, spies, hidden Nazi gold and politicians across the northern hemisphere.

The new book See Glass by thriller, adventure, spy story writer Ido Graf has all the twists of a Nelson DeMille bestseller novel. DeMille’s Plum Island is one of my best fiction books of all time. See Glass is one of my picks for best fiction books of 2020.

Another great fiction book writer I have read recently is Ben MacIntyre. His book The Spy and the Traitor is a riveting book and another of my top fiction books to read. It’s the sort of book that would make a great contemporary film or TV series.

Many new streaming services have appeared in recent years. Film production companies  such as Metro Goldwyn Mayer and Paramount Pictures have been joined by others such as HBO, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Studios, Sky TV, Crackle and Disney+.

See Glass by Ido Graf is available now either as a paperback or as a Kindle eBook on Amazon. I understand that this novel will also be available on Audible as an audiobook in the coming two months.

The Racketeer by John Grisham

The Rackateer by John Grishm

The Racketeer by John Grishm

The Racketeer thriller by John Grisham tell the story of the life of Federal Judge Raymond Fogletree and his sudden and mysterious death. It’s surprising that these Judges don’t run into more difficulties when considering the enormity of the cases they deal with and the, sometimes, severe sentences they have to hand down to very dangerous individuals and organisations.

John Grisham states that in the USA only four active Federal Judges had previously been murdered, someone had just increased it to five.

The Judge’s body, along with that of his young secretary had been found in his lakeside cabin in the basement. The FBI had found the bodies after being alerted to the Judges disappearance by his law clerk. The clerk had become worried when the Judge didn’t turn up for Court on the previous Monday morning. The FBI checked the crime scene and found no forced entry and no indication of a struggle. Only the bodies showed evidence of a crime and the FBI felt it was someone close who had committed it.

The storyteller did not know the Judge but he did know why hhttps://www.idograf.com/bloge was killed and who had done killed him. The only problem, a fellow lawyer, he now languished in prison.

The Racketeer is a piece of murder, mystery fiction which has a dark Noir feel to it. As always a tense and clever plot which has strong currents flowing through it. Well worth a read. Well done Grisham!

Spennutryllirinn Racketeer eftir John Grisham segir frá lífi sambandsdómara Raymond Fogletree og skyndilegs og dularfulls dauða hans. Það kemur á óvart að þessir dómarar lenda ekki í meiri erfiðleikum þegar þeir taka tillit til mikils mála sem þeir fjalla um og stundum þungra dóma sem þeir þurfa að dæma mjög hættulegum einstaklingum og samtökum.

John Grisham fullyrðir að í Bandaríkjunum hafi aðeins fjórir virkir alríkisdómarar áður verið myrtir, einhver hefði bara fjölgað þeim í fimm.

Lík dómarans ásamt líki ungs ritara hans höfðu fundist í skála hans við vatnið í kjallaranum. Alríkislögreglan FBI hafði fundið líkin eftir að lögregluvörður hans var látinn vita að dómararnir hvarf. Afgreiðslumaðurinn hafði orðið áhyggjufullur þegar dómarinn mætti ​​ekki fyrir dóminn á mánudagsmorguninn á undan. FBI kannaði glæpavettvanginn og fann enga þvingaða inngöngu og engar vísbendingar um baráttu. Aðeins líkin sýndu vísbendingar um glæp og FBI fannst að það væri einhver náinn sem hefði framið það.

Sögumaðurinn þekkti ekki dómara en hann vissi af hverju  var drepinn og hver hafði drepið hann. Eina vandamálið, samstarfsmaður lögfræðings, hvílir nú í fangelsi.

The Racketeer er morð, leyndardómsskáldskapur sem hefur dökka Noir -tilfinningu. Eins og alltaf spennuþrungin og snjöll söguþráður sem hefur sterka strauma sem flæða í gegnum hana. Vel þess virði að lesa. Vel gert Grisham!

Plum Island by Nelson DeMille

Plum island nelson demille thriller

Nelson DeMille fiction Thriller

An NYPD homicide cop John Corey who was wounded in the line of duty is convalescing in a rural part of Long Island.  A young couple he knows are shot and killed on the family patio. They had previously worked as biologists at Plum Island, a research site which was said to be an incubator for germ warfare.

This double murder has terrifying global implications – and forces Corey and two incredible women into a perilous search for the secrets of Plum Island. A superb thriler.

DeMille himself, has had a very interesting life spending three years as an officer in the First Cavalry Division of the United States Army. Between 1966 and 1969 he saw action as an infantry platoon leader during the Vietnam War eventually being decorated with the Bronze Star, the Air Medal and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry.

Plum Island by Nelson DeMille is gritty and atmospheric fiction novel and I would thoroughly recommend it.
