Paul Shadinger's 347 Million: A Matt Preston Novel is an intriguing thriller that puts readers on the edge of their seats as they follow a well-rounded protagonist on a dangerous ride after a stolen fortune. When John calls Matt, asking for a favor, Matt knows it is something he can handle even if it is about a super-secret meeting between two dangerous people, Salvatore Zampuchini and Abdulaleem al-Zaman. But when things escalate to the theft of 347 million, which is supposed to be payment for arms headed for the UIAB, Matt knows he is in a dangerous game he never bargained for, and it takes him across countries as he tries to solve the mystery. Run-ins with the mafia, loose ends, and nonstop action are just a few of the hurdles he faces in this adventure. But can he find the missing money?
Paul Shadinger writes like a pro, and from the opening gambling scenes, the reader is pulled in by the strong drama and the interesting dialogues. The characters are rock-solid, including the leader of the United Islamic Brotherhood of Allah (UIBA), the President-elect of the US, and the head of the Italian mafia. Characters like John and Mousse are deftly written and they are quirky, deepening the humor. It is smart and suspenseful and twisty. The author keeps readers guessing, and this is a quality of the storytelling craft that elevates the entertainment potential of the novel. The suspense begins with the way John communicates his request, and it continues with plot points that keep readers wondering what happens next. Paul Shadinger's 347 Million: A Matt Preston Novel is an action-packed, imaginative story that offers a delightful reading experience.
