    Great action thriller!

    During the nightmare that is coronavirus, I stared at this cover of this book and thought, should I read this or will it terrify me? I’m an illness chicken and fear everything at the moment but this book was ace and I am fond of a medical thriller. I’m so glad I read it! It’s a fast-paced and punchy action adventure starring lead, Jake Parker and his sidekick, Eliza - the scientist. With a new lethal illness attacking people coming to the USA, Jake is brought onto the case. I enjoyed the American setting as much as the characters. Great backstory for Jake and I loved Eliza with her guts and dedication. If you seek a book that is filled with action with a race against time, then Containment will be a right thrill for you. The second half moves like lightning and the end is a shocker! Just in case you were wondering about the deadly disease, it’s yuck inducing but not graphic. Even the most squeamish of reader will have no trouble reading this. It’s all about the action and the race to solve the mystery. It’ll have you on the edge of your seat. Great read! Definitely recommended for action thriller lovers.

    Fast paced action packed thriller

    BLOG TOUR REVIEW Review for 'Containment' by Nick Thacker Read and reviewed via NetGalley for Bookouture publishers and Bookouture anonymous Publication date 10th September 2020 This is the first book that I have read by this author. It is also the first book in the 'Jake Parker' series. I was originally drawn to this book by its interesting and intriguing blurb. I also wanted to take a break from my typical genre of crime thrillers and this book seemed to fit fit the bill. It also seem quite apt to read this during the coronavirus pandemic. I must admit I was also biased due to the publisher being Bookouture. I have yet to read a book published by Bookouture that I haven't enjoyed. Hopefully this won't be the first... Watch this space! (Written before I started reading the book). This novel consists of 65 chapters which are short to medium in length so ideal to read 'just one more chapter' before bed...OK, I know yeah right, but still just in case! This book is written in third person perspective and one of the main protagonists is Jake. I enjoy books written in third person with several protagonists as it let's you see the bigger picture of what's going on and you get to know more characters. This book is based in the US. I'll be honest and say this wasn't quite what I expected from the blurb. However, that isn't to say I didn't enjoy it. It was definitely different to what I normally read and I think it's expanded my interest for more of this type books. The storyline was quite unique as well as completely action packed, gripping and non stop. The storyline gripped my attention from beginning to end. It was very wel written making it quite a smooth read. The characters were all well defined and from very different backgrounds which made them more intriguing. Unfortunately, I can't say I was surprised when one of the people involved was revealed. However, I was quite surprised by the rest of it. I must congratulation Nick on the fact that it is quite obvious that alot of research went into this which is always a bonus. I'm always put off by books when it is blatant the author has done no research at all. I enjoyed the fact that some chapters ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger although this did become a problem when it was late at night and I just had to see what happened next!! Overall a very fast paced and action packed thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat in suspense! Genres covered include Thriller, Action and Adventure. I would recommend this book to the fans of the above as well as fans of pandemic novels. 315 pages. This book is £1.99 to purchase on kindle via Amazon which I think is a good price for this book!!! Rated 4 /5 (I enjoyed it ) on Goodreads, Instagram, Amazon UK and Amazon US and on over 30 Facebook pages plus my blog on Facebook.

    Fast paced thriller

    Well written and fast paced thriller. Jake, former Army and former ace detective, is called upon to investigate when an unknown disease shows up at an ICE detention center. When he finds out it is man made the stakes are raised and the danger escalates. He must find who is behind the attack before many, many more people die. Jake is a great lead character with a strong sense of right and wrong and great instincts. I can't wait to read what happens next for him. Thank you Netgalley and Bookouture for this ARC.
