51syjkzq1kl

Book Review – “The Bid” eBook was published in 2017 and was written by Adrian Magson (http://www.adrianmagson.com). Mr. Magson has published twenty two novels.

I received a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I categorize this novel as ‘PG’ because it contains scenes of Violence. The story is set in the contemporary US. The main character is Ruth Gonzales, an investigator for Cruxys Solutions.

A client of Cruxys Solutions has turned up missing and Gonzales is tasked to investigate. She begins her investigation in the UK, but soon heads to the US to find the client. Before long she finds herself on the trail of terrorists intending on using drones in some kind of attack.

She is teamed with former partner Andy Vaslik as they follow the trail to their missing client. Gonzales proves to be a strong female character. Not only do they find terrorists behind the abduction, but the terrorists are allowing various groups to bid for the right to claim responsibility.

I enjoyed the just short of 9 hours I spent reading this 360 page Mystery / Thriller. I had not read the first book in the series, but this one read well on its own. This was not the most exciting book, but it was a good story. The cover art selected is approprate for the story being told. I give this novel a 3.7 (rounded up to a 4) out of 5.

My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).
