Pay to Play took my by surprise. I heard about it through the author on her podcast and was intrigued. The world Mrs. Williams creates is alive. It feels real, tangible, you become fully engulfed in it. It is full personal struggles and vices that the characters endure. You care for them and their families feeling the their plights as you go through the story. Overall, I was very pleased with the book and enjoyed it. There were some moments that were graphic and shocked me, but they lend to the authenticity of the world she creates. Would I recommend her book, yes. But be ready for a wild ride
You will be excited with insight of actual FBI procedures. That will let you to know what really goes on behind the scenes.
But also the emotion that a well trained Special Agent must experience, and try to control.
There are several wow moments in the book. I have been a truck driver for 35 years, and there were a few scenes in the book that even made me blush 😄.
Pay to Play takes you into a word that many people have never entered before.
This is a great read.
Enjoyed this book;narrator did a super job; highly recommend-loved the investigation details and suspense
I liked the main and supporting characters, they were believable as ordinary humans. The story was very interesting. I had already read the book simply because I love Jerri Williams’ podcast, but I enjoyed listen even more.
This debut was outstanding. Full of twists and turns which were unpredictable but believable! Every chapter brought a new angle to the thriller. Cant wait to see if this becomes a series with SA Wheeler and sidekick Hildebrand.
