In Washington, D. C., embattled President Colin Rockwell is faced with the consequences of his sloppy personal life, indifferent attitude, and general incompetence in office. His serial philandering has exposed not only his lack of character but that he has become a threat to national security and creating problems in the international arena.
Amy Radigan, a young and ambitious San Diego reporter, comes across a packet from a whistle-blower in the cold letter file. As she sinks her teeth into the story, she discovers a massive cover-up regarding the San Onofre Nuclear Generation station. The deeper into the investigation she gets, the higher in government, ultimately reaching Vice President.
As she, and security specialist John Randall, uncover the truth of what happened, an attempt is made on the lives of Amy Radigan and her girlfriend. As Amy Radigan and her friends battle against government officials and become swept up in international intrigue, will her race to expose the truth come in time to save them all?
This extraordinary political thriller will keep the reader on the edge of their seat from beginning to end.
The Clancy-esque novel is full of political intrigue and suspense. The Silicon Gambit will leave the reader excited and unsettled.
The Silicon Gambit (An Amy Radigan Thriller) by Isabella Steel
What I really like about this story is about a reporter that unearths a huge breakthrough as to why there is nuclear waste in the Pacific Ocean near San Diego.
It is also about so many others who at times the story is their own. Stories do collide and they are all encompassed into just one story after all. Lots of gems in this book!
There is so much action, fast paced at times and I had a hard time putting it down to do my chores and work. Did take several days, didn't want to miss a word.
There were new words for me also that I enjoy finding out about. Love all the new locations in this story. Besides the San Diego location there is also DC and other states and countries.
Quinn has his own story with his investigative samples of water. First Lady also has scenes and little does she realize that the attempts on a life may have been for her or the VP.
Like hearing both sides of the story and this book has that also. How things are done behind the scenes that come to furition later, sometimes sooner than you realize.
There are guns and tragedies, death, romantic affairs and love.
Characters are strong and brave and caring and got your six. So many emotions are displayed throughout the book: nursing wounds, caring for human life, fear, scared for your life and others and many forms of love.
I really feel this book would be good for a man or woman because there are so many aspects of it that each can relate to.
Very interesting story, love how it ends with promise of another in the works: Revenge is Reason Enough.
Twists turns and peoples names I recognize making it very plausible to me that this could really happen, those in government, high positions and other country interferences in the scheme of things. Love high tech and how things are made with latest technology.
Details are so well described, love to see this a s amovie, would be awesome.
First time reading this author and can't wait to read more.
I received this review copy from the author via LinkedIN and this is my honest opinion.
