Terriffic, fast-paced thriller

There are few authors capable of writing a novel with utterly unbelievable characters living out a totally unrealistic plot. Jeff Abbott proves that he is one of these remarkable writers.

"Panic" has Evan Casher, 24 year old Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker finding his mother murdered. He is rescued by a mysterious character, escapes from his would-be benefactor, is retaken and cast into a world of international intrigue and mystery.

The plot has more twists and turns than the Gordian Knot. But Abbott handles them beautifully. I willingly cast aside disbelief simply because the action is furious. This is truly a page-turner.

Anyone with a sophisticated knowledge of computer technology will laugh, as I did, at Abbott's uncountable gaffes in that area. But it's all forgivable because Abbott makes you want to get to the next page, the next twist, the next step in the adventure.

This is definitely not great literature: it's just a fun thriller. A great thriller, in fact.
