Book Review: The Maverick Experiment

About the Book
Straight from the mind of a U.S. intelligence and special operations officer comes The Maverick Experiment, a novel that will bring readers closer to the duties and lives of our own special forces than any news story ever could. Breaking all the rules, a battle-hardened group of fighters confront Afghan terrorists on their own terms.

Join an independent team of American warriors on a deadly undercover mission. An experienced operative, well-trained in survival, evasion, resistance, and escape, Derek Stevens is the ideal candidate to lead a crew on a top-secret mission into Afghanistan to neutralize Taliban leaders. However, the mission turns out to be much more than even he had expected.

The Maverick Experiment is a fast-paced, well-plotted military thriller that is enhanced by the author's vast knowledge of U.S. Intelligence, the Special Operations community, and the psychology that drives terrorists.  The immediacy and accessibility of the prose, the conversational language, and the action-packed storyline will quickly engage readers and hold their interests throughout.

The first in a series, the book expertly lays the groundwork for further Maverick missions.

My Take on the BookThis book was a page-turner! From the beginning to the end you are on a roller coaster of excitement. Like many books that I enjoy reading (action adventure) this book kept me on the edge of my seat, anticipating the next move of the main characters and wondering where the plot would lead next.

This was a book that captivated me, and I found that I could not put it down. Typically a slower reader, this book encouraged me to keep going and I was done in only about two days. I probably could have been done sooner, if I had stayed up a bit later!   

The book has good character development and characters all-together and I found myself being drawn into the back story and intricate plot that the author weaved for his characters and for his readers!

As I mentioned above this is the start of a series of books and I for one am looking forward to the sequels!
