My Review:
I am happy to have had the chance to review this book. In all honesty, I didn’t think I would like it. The cover just didn’t appeal to me. I like a cover that looks as thrilling as the book sounds. But, this is a case of “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover”, because, WOW! I really ended up enjoying this book. David Fett and Stephen Langford have coupled together to create a novel that is so realistic and thrilling and really makes the reader think about the world today.

White Sleeper. An interesting title for a book. But, it fits the story so well. A very scary look at the sadistic world of terrorism. A story of seeking revenge for a father’s death, of a disease that starts to wipe out people, and classic good vs. evil. Dr. Dave Richards and FBI Agent Paula Mushari are out to redeem themselves by working this case and proving that they are capable. The rush of racing against time, the thrills of a roller coaster ride as each page brings a new twist, and the perfect flow of this novel of hateful supremacy, blend together to grip the reader from start to finish.

I definitely recommend this book. It’s 4 Books worthy and will leave you thinking about it, and the world today, long after you’ve closed it’s covers. I certainly am glad that I didn’t judge this book by it’s cover and gave it a shot. I truly enjoyed it, and the writing style of these two authors is brilliant. I can’t wait to see what these guys have in store for their readers next!
