The Taste of Fear Review


Summary

American movie star Scarlett Cox and her husband, hotel tycoon Salvador Brazza, head to Africa to get away and resuscitate their ailing marriage. When robbed of their money and passports, they seek help from the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam on the very day Al Qaeda chooses to bomb it. In an eyeblink they are taken hostage and whisked across the border deep into the Congo, one of the last truly wild places left on earth.
Battling terrorists, deadly wildlife and cannibalistic rebels, Scarlett and Sal must find a way to survive in a violent, primeval world. And the only person who may be able to save them is the assassin sent to kill them.

My Rating

5/5

My Review

The Taste of Fear is an amazing adventure that spans LA to the Congo. The vivid imagery was fantastic, you can clearly picture what the characters are seeing and feeling. The adventures and thrills are mixed perfectly with the imagery of the story so that one does not take away from the other. There's a lot of heart stopping moments in this book that kept me reading "just one more page" late into the night. Terrorists, rebels and kidnapping mixed with wild animal attacks will leave you unable  to catch your breath when you read this. A roller coaster ride of epic proportions that gets a big 5 stars from me!

  1. Sounds really good. I like a book that at the end of my hectic days, I can read a few chapters to transport myself somewhere else and forget my own problems then fall right to sleep. I just finished a book last night and I am going to get this one for tonight! Perfect! Thanks so much!
