Book Review Wednesday – The Assassin Who Couldn’t Dance

The read-a-book-a-week challenge continues with Glen Barrera’s Assassin Who Couldn’t Dance.

assassincoverThere are some books that are nightstand dust collectors. Some are the type where you read a few pages at a time before going to bed. Or maybe a chapter, a book read on and off over the course of a few months, or a year, or longer.

The Assassin Who Couldn’t Dance is not one of those books. So don’t even try. Be prepared to go all in, stay up all night, keep reading ’til you can’t, then stay up another hour. It’s that good.

Barrera weaves a tale that had many characters, many story lines, lots of locales, people, and most of all, motives. Why? Hidden treasure. Ill-gotten gains. Safe deposit boxes and secret codes. In Arabic. Shady dealings in the 1991 Gulf War result in some bad guys not being able to get their hand on a lot of loot. The good guys are a team of ex-Recon who, one by one, are visited by the bad guys’ goon squad, to get the loot back. But no one knows there’s an Assassin Who Coudn’t Dance out for his own measure of revenge.

Good guy? Bad guy? It’s really that simple, and really that captivating. It is a face-paced yarn that’s definitely a satisfying page-tuner. It has it all: mystery, suspense, intrigue, and a satisfying ending.

Don’t miss out on this fun read.
