Three agents are dead and one missing in what was supposed to be a cookie cutter operation in support of the Seventh Fleet’s visit to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The culprits initially suspected were members of an Indonesian terrorist group with connections to Al Qaeda. Special Agent Ruben Carver, as the NCIS Case Agent, takes a small, hand picked team to Singapore to begin unraveling the mystery.
The story, set in Southeast Asia, is the first book in the Ruben Carver series. A man tolerated by the agency’s hierarchy because he’s most effective when he lands “in the shit [sic]”. In truth, a six foot two, two hundred and twenty pound shit magnet, who lives by the maxim: “You can never have too many friends or bullets.”
Carver is the perfect read for those looking to get lost in a well-developed, action-packed story that will have you turning the pages with haste. Carver is just this and so much more as it is an exciting tale that will take the reader on a memorable, sometimes terrifying but thrilling journey that will involve action, murder, and a chilling conspiracy. For readers that love mystery and suspense as well as books that feature special agents, this book is for you but really it can be read by anybody that adores mystery as it is an incredible book that will surely captivate any reader for hours on end.
Carver follows the protagonist of the story, Special Agent Ruben Carver who is currently working in Japan for the NCIS. Carver is a Veteran with a decorated history which means that he is well-experienced in all that he does… even killing. Carver turns up to work one day to hear the news that three fellow NCIS agents have been murdered in Malaysia with only one survivor and so Carver must investigate the brutal murders and discover why this happened and who or whom committed the offenses. Follow Carver as he goes on an action-packed journey that will place him in many dangerous situations which makes for incredibly exciting reading and this book lovers is the general premise of this splendid story.
The story of Carver is one that is wildly entertaining, especially for somebody like me as I love any book that features an excellent agent protagonist. The story is one that is full of dramatic twists and turns, the kind of twists and turns that will have the reader stunned and re-reading the sentence to soak in the information and the twist that has occurred. I personally adore these stories, they add an extra layer of brilliance to the story and keep the reader turning the page with haste so already I have to applaud the author, Jeffrey Seay for his ability to incorporate brilliant plot devices such as twists an turns to captivate his readers.
Jeffrey Seay is not only a genius at incorporating twists and turns but a genius for creating such a memorable protagonist. The characterization of Ruben Carver is excellent, so much so that the reader will be able to invest in him as well as root for him from the very beginning. The easy to read but also detailed narrative is remarkable and will ensure that no reader is ever left behind as Seay perfectly places the reader right into the thick of the story amongst the drama.
As Carver is an incredible, thrilling, mystery-filled novel, I have no choice but to award this sensational book five stars. If you are a reader who is looking for a fast-paced, action-packed story that will have you shocked as well as enthralled then this story is for you so do not miss the opportunity to read it!
