Picking up a few months after the conclusion of Evening Wolves, Luke Taylor’s Shatterpoint Alpha follows the story of Henry Morell. In post-crisis Crescent City, Morell is seeking a change of scenery from Homeland Security. Offered a position at the prestigious Tidebender International, a private security firm, Morell is certain he’s leaving behind the tumultuous life of Homeland Security for good. However, on what is meant to be his first day, one of the clients of Tidebender International is murdered in such a way that Morell suspects old enemies are about. Paired again with his colleagues at Crescent PD, Morell must confront a demon from his past, while trying to evade accusations against him. Will he solve the case before another client meets a deadly end?
Welcoming back familiar characters, Shatterpoint Alpha by Luke Taylor does not disappoint. It’s almost as if you’re watching a film, with all the political and crime drama unfolding before your eyes. The subtle twists and turns of the novel will keep readers hanging on to find out what happens next. There were moments where I found some of the character plot lines hard to follow, but as you read on, those seem to fall nicely into place. I particularly liked the point of view of the assassin antagonist, but I will not say more so as not to reveal any details of the plot! I adored the tie in with old, Russian traditions and mysterious organizations. Again, Mr. Taylor has impeccable descriptive talents, something sure to draw the reader in from the start, and even though there is a bit of a cliffhanger, it’s certainly worth the read. It’s never a dull moment in Shatterpoint Alpha, and I look forward to the story continuing in Shatterpoint Bravo.
