I had the opportunity to review an ARC of Michelle Davidson Argyle’s thriller, MONARCH. Now, I don’t read thrillers ordinarily, but let me tell you, I was drawn into this book from the first page!
The action starts off immediately and Michelle does a great job of keeping the tension going throughout. She does a seamless job of introducing characters and making me care about them without it feeling effortful.
What I liked about Monarch was the alternating POVs. Seeing the plot unfold from different characters’ perspectives added a layer of richness that compounded my “conectedness” to the story line.
Bravo, Michelle!!!! I’ll TOTALLY read your other novels. 🙂
Back Cover Blurb:
Nick’s life as a CIA spy should be fulfilling, but it has only given him unhappiness—a wife who committed suicide, and two daughters who resent everything he has become. Now, stuck in the Amazon on the last mission of his career, he must track down Matheus Ferreira, a drug lord and terrorist the U.S. has tried to bring down for years. If he succeeds, he’ll have the chance to start his life over again.
Just when Nick is on the brink of catching Ferreira, he’s framed for a murder that turns his world upside down. His only chance of survival lies in West Virginia where Lilian Love, a woman from his past, owns the secluded Monarch Inn. He’s safe, but not for long…
