If the truth dies... He'll kill her all over again.
I was drawn to the book as soon as I read this part of the blurb. The contents definitely lived up to intrigue that was created, The Killing Grounds was action-packed and full of energy and excitement.
The book started off well as I found myself absorbed in the opening scene at sea with Cooper, Jackson and Ellie. The descriptions of the heart-pounding scene were vivid and I found myself holding my breath as the events unfolded.
The rest of the book was just as exciting, although I felt that some parts didn't need to be as long as they were, however this didn't stop me from wanting to continue reading.
I liked the exotic settings of Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo and USA because I felt like they gave the book a uniqueness and an edge.
There were lots of characters and although their relationships were complex, the important theme of PTSD was brought up through Cooper.
Reading it, I could definitely tell that a lot of research had gone into writing the book which I appreciated.
Overall, I'd give this book 4 out of 5 stars. The first book in the Thomas J Cooper series, it was packed full of twists, politics and adventure and I would definitely read the rest of the series.
