Douglas Misquita’s latest book, Trigger Point, is the third in the ‘Luc Fortesque’ series. It follows Luc as he’s hunted by the world’s oldest espionage agency. The crazy sequence of events unfolds a hooking thriller that definitely transports a reader into the world of Luc. There is wild action and the author has made a fair attempt to serve it in generous amounts to the readers.
First, I haven’t read the previous parts of the series and so, I was a tad bit confused with the world-building. But as I read ahead and things transitioned from simple adventure to intellectual high, I began getting a hang of the story. Yes, the build-up does take some time but it’s done well. Second, the pace is crazy. If you end up missing a line, you’re lost. So brace yourself tightly if you’re on the ride to reading Trigger Point. It would demand your undivided attention. Third, I simply loved the writing style. It is wonderful for a thriller book that needs its rush and ferocity. I cannot emphasise enough how well-written the book is! I fell for some enlightening conversations on religions and the world. I truly did because the entire narrative goes on to show the meticulous research of the author. It is commendable.
With a lot happening in the book and due to an overwhelming number of characters, it was a bit tough for me to keep a track of things. Sometimes, it got too fast for me to process the events and make sense of it. Now, this can be a good or bad point, depending on the reader. For some, the plot might happen to appear complex because of frequent action-packed sequences. Moreover, brilliant writing with sophisticated vocabulary might pose a challenge for beginners. However, it would suit those who have a liking for fast-paced action thrillers.
If you’re one of those who’d kill for a nail-biting thriller that keeps you at the edge of your seat, read Trigger Point!
