Tension immediately starts to build, and a few minutes after take off the plane is hijacked by Arab terrorists. Harrison’s character build-up is so strong that the reader can’t help but get involved in each aspect of the story. Deals are made, and broken, as tension rises. Told from different points of view and bolstered by different back stories, each chapter took my breath away as I tried to walk in the shoes of individual characters. The action became too intense for me in parts, and I ultimately had to put the book down for a bit before attacking it again.
The story bounces from Washington to New York and Karachi, and from offices to airplanes, cities and deserts, while the search for these terrorists who are hellbent on finding vengeance by destroying the western world, continues. Some parts were a bit too unrealistic, even for this genre, but my emotions were bouncing around too much for me to care. Sometimes all we want is an exciting story, and I guarantee that State of Vengeance is that and a little more.
I, for one, am planning to catch up on this author’s past work while waiting for his next novel.
