Book Review - Wrath

About The Book
First in ‘The Deadly Sins Series,’ Wrath (Sterlinghouse Publisher) by Robert Santoro, introduces Jake Chase; derring-do, adrenaline junkie, part of the FBI’s anti-terrorism unit.  Don’t let his boyish good looks fool you - behind the innocent face this man has the fearless heart of a giant and will stop at nothing to crack a case.  On the fast track to success, Jake reports directly to the Deputy Director, his friend and mentor, and has one-on-one conversations with the President of the United States.  The only thing more important to Jake than the FBI is his beautiful wife, Diana, and fitting into her world of wealth, inherited when her corporate raider father was murdered two y ears ago in his palatial Malibu beach home. 

After an attack on Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, the worst since the tragedy of the World Trade Center, everyone assumes it was an act of terrorism – everyone, that is, but Jake Chase.  Hundreds are presumed dead or missing, including several well-known celebrities, and various terrorist groups have claimed responsibility.  So why doesn’t the LAPD have a single lead?  For Jake, the evidence isn’t adding up, but one thing is becoming uncomfortably clear – the more he uncovers, the more he doesn’t like what he’s finding out! 

On a manhunt that takes him from Los Angeles to New York, Dubai and the Cayman Islands, and with time rapidly running out, Agent Jake Chase knows he has to work fast to thwart another attack.  Jake is realizing it doesn’t always pay to be the best at what you do - but what he doesn’t know is how the outcome will implicate high ranking members of the Bureau and could cost him his family, job, and yes, even his life.

My Take On The Book
I am always looking for action packed books that leave you on the edge of your seats and this book does not let down. It was a great read, being both fast paced and intriguing, making me want more. The plot was strong and held numerous twits and turns that left you guessing. With this book being the first of a series, it definitely set a good tone for the others to come.

I will say that you will not be bored and the author does a good job at connecting the reader with the main characters within the book.

With how fast paced and action packed this book was I am expecting that the ones to come will only follow suit, and I would not be surprised if a movie deal gets cut at some time in the future as well.

Overall a great book and one that I would definitely recommend the book as it will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more!
