Publisher's Summary

The Amazon Charts bestselling series continues as ruthless ecoterrorists, heavily armed miners, and cold-blooded drug smugglers clash in the Appalachians, where air marshal Seth Walker is investigating a mysterious plane crash.

A commuter flight has fallen from clear skies over West Virginia, its wing sheared off at twenty thousand feet. Air marshal Seth Walker is called to the mountains of Appalachia to investigate. But what he stumbles into is a ground war as unpredictable and combustible as a mason jar full of nitroglycerin. 

Before he can even start searching for what might have downed the plane, Walker finds himself caught in the confounding - and deadly - cross fire between drone-deploying ecoterrorists, unstable frackers, ruthless drug smugglers, and armed miners pushed to the breaking point. 

The escalating mystery takes a personal turn as Seth gets closer to the truth about the money, power, and politics motivating everyone involved - including those Seth believed he could trust. Can he dodge the danger lurking in every hill and holler long enough to discover what may be the biggest threat of all?

New Seth Walker Book is a Fun Action Read

This thriller is full of action sequences and characters that kept my interest through-out the entire book. Plus, I got to learn a lot about drones that I didn’t know before.

Thoughts:

False Horizons is a book full of action and perfect for those who enjoy tense moments. I’ll be honest, when I first started reading I only expected action toward the end and maybe a moment in the middle, but was pleasantly surprised when the action started fairly early on and continued through-out the entire book. Each action sequence was descriptive, well thought-out, and unique, but there are also moments in between the action where the characters regroup, rethink, and discuss what may be going on and what their next step may be providing a moment for your heart to stop beating so fast. However, all this action can also come at a cost and not every character is always safe.

The characters, both main and secondary, are well written. While the main character is Seth Walker, my favorite was Sheriff Heather Simon, who was capable, resourceful, and likeable. It’s easy to write a sheriff as someone difficult the main character has to work with or someone who puts up roadblocks, but in False Horizons Sheriff Simon is a person you would like to know in real life, someone with a neighborly demeanor who treats everyone with respect.

My only issue I did have with the book was at the beginning when the story referenced events or people in Seth’s life without any context. For example, in Chapter 1, someone named Emma is referenced, but we aren’t told if she is his wife, daughter, or past client. I started with book 2, so my knowledge is limited to only False Horizons. However, none of these events or individuals play a major role in this book so once I got past the first couple of chapters this issue did not pop-up again for me.

Thank you to the author and GoodReads for the opportunity to review the book, which I won in a GoodReads Giveaway.

Twisted plot, but still a satisfying mystery

Coal mining, oil fracking, protesters, corruption (imagine that), super-smart drones. There's a lot of death in this book, so set your teeth and get our armor on. Not sure what the title means, possibly about flying, possibly about politics. Seth is a good character, and he learns some important lessons here besides solving the mystery.

A Good yarn and race against time thriller

Our electrical engineer hero. ( Mcgiver with
Radio Shack help) is once again in a race to
stop the perpetrators of evil. This time it is the
evil application of high tech drones. Likeable characters and a nice narration effort make the journey enjoyable.

Better than the first

I thought that the first story in this series was great. But False Horizon was even better. Plenty of action with first rate narration. There is just enough explanation of the technology involved to make it interesting without it becoming boring. The author also keeps the plot moving along at a quick pace. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
