Review “THE DESERTER” By Nelson DeMille and Alex DeMille
This book grabs you from the start and doesn’t let you go until the last page. Nelson and Alex have created a suspense tale that causes the reader to experience so much tension, you’ll start to wonder just how far the rubber band can extend.
Army Captain Kyle Mercer mysteriously abandons his post in Afghanistan. But when he’s captured later on video killing the very men that supposedly kidnapped him by beheading them, the Army suddenly realizes that Kyle is off the grid and officially one of the most dangerous deserters ever known. Kyle is spotted in Venezuela a year later and the Army calls on CID agents Scott Brodie and Maggie Taylor to bring him in. What Brodie and Taylor don’t know is that Mercer is very valuable to someone; someone who doesn’t want Mercer to be brought back to the States to face a court martial, but instead wants him dead.
Brodie and Taylor go from whorehouse to henhouse to outhouse and all points in between to find Captain Mercer. This killer, however, has friends that are protecting him, and when Brodie suspects his partner of possibly having another agenda, he must decide who he can trust, and who may be out to stop him.
This book has many layers, and the father/son DeMille combo works to perfection. Readers will think one thing, only to be thrown into a totally different direction on the next page. While the pace isn’t quite a thriller, that’s also the beauty of the book. It brings the reader along at a suspenseful, frightening speed with many mystery elements introduced throughout the tale.
