With terrorism being such a terrifying but also fascinating concept, and is executed very well in this novel by John L. DeBoer. This was a book recommended by a friend of mine who knows I’ve enjoyed books by authors such as Tom Clancy is the past. I have to say even though I hadn’t heard of DeBoer previously, When the Reaper Comes did not fail to deliver. The writing is pacey and punchy, much as you’d expect in an action thriller, and the plot has enough twists and surprises to keep you in that ‘just one more page’ mindset, so that I slept in for work one day after reading too late the night before. I suppose that in itself is a ringing endorsement, so make sure you allow enough time before embarking on this page-turner yourself.

DeBoer started WHEN THE REAPER COMES off strong. Immediately I was taken in. Terrorism is definitely a relevant topic for readers this day and age, especially when the terrorists are American citizens plotting an attack in New Jersey. I like that the reader is given a well-rounded picture of all the different agencies involved in scenarios like this, even the POV of the terrorists. I think by allowing the reader into the mind of the terrorists, mostly the team leader, it makes them more human. Then again, it felt like it gave the reader too much and left no real meaning to when Adam and the rest of the team realize what is going on. But I was absolutely compelled to keep reading, no matter how sleepy I was. As for the actual violence in the book, it wasn't as in-your-face violent as I expected from a terrorist book, but that's a compliment. Violence actually shown and not just talked about was in minute instances until the big stand-off. All in all, a good read.

Disclaimer: You know it; don't make me type it out. When the Reaper Comes, authored by John L. DeBoer, is an exciting action/suspense/thriller pitting American security experts against American born terrorists. The bad guys (that would be the terrorists) want to make a statement while killing a popular musician who said things about terrorists that they didn't like. The good guys are the security agents assigned to protect the musician. A lot of supporting characters (on both sides) come together in a compelling chess game. Advantage shifts between players continuously, each trying to guess their opponents next move. Both sides are smart so the story shifts back and forth keeping the reader hooked. Like a chess game, targets come and go with the flow of events. Twists, turns, surprises, and questionable alliances abound. The positive and negative in this story is the same; It is an extremely plausible plot. As the reader, I never said to myself, "that could never happen". The scary thing is that it really could happen, and there are so many variables which could lead to many different outcomes. Violence (hello, terrorists), suspense, intrigue, and a bit of romance keeps this a taut, spellbinding, and eminently entertaining read. When the Reaper Comes, by John L. DeBoer is a scary story that could be actually happening as you read it. I'll admit it scared me in a way that I'm not used to. If you like your thrills and chills on the more plausible and realistic side, When the Reaper Comes will get your blood pumping. Enjoy! Mike
