Northfield by Calvin Fisher is set in a post-apocalyptic world and follows the life of a righteous man who is tested beyond his limits. When Mark Northfield lost his wife, he made a promise to live and not lose the best of himself to this crazy world. With these promises in his heart, Mark works as a mercenary with an organization called the Network. His usual missions are protecting people; however, his employers trick him into taking a completely different mission. Instead of protecting the person in his charge, he needs to assassinate them. If he fails to kill the person, Mark will be killed. His only option is to kill or be killed. But this is not how Mark works, and it goes against everything he stands for. What will Mark do? Can he find a loophole in this and save his life? Or is there something bigger waiting to happen, and Mark has no idea?
The suspense is thick in this story! Mark is one of those rare characters who are human in everything they do. Usually, the characters in science fiction novels are too far removed from humanity for the reader to make a connection with them. Not Mark. Mark is imperfectly human. He is stubborn, kind to a fault, and ready to fight for the ones who cannot protect themselves. Northfield is fantastic. I believe Calvin Fisher has done a phenomenal job of creating an environment that is perfect for the characters to thrive and drive the story forward. Mark remains at the center of the story, and that does not change as the story progresses. Reading this story was a very visual experience, and it is very cinematic. The steady flow of action and suspense hooks readers and makes it an adrenaline-inducing, absolutely perfect reading experience!
