Late on the night of October 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a twenty-one-year-old gay college student, left a bar in Laramie, Wyoming with two alleged "strangers" Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson. Eighteen hours later, Matthew was found tied to a log fence on the outskirts of town, unconscious and barely alive. Overnight, a politically expedient myth took the place of important facts. By the time Matthew died a few days later, his name was synonymous with anti-gay hate.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this book as so many "officially queer" orgs damned it. What a powerful indictment of the gay and media industry that lies and builds myths to fit the narrative. Brilliantly written and well researched, Jimenez brings the people and town of Laramie to life. And what a searing indictment of the meth and drug fueled life that is behind so many tragedies in America. What shocked me the most about the book was how little I knew of what was really going on. You really wonder who you can believe any more in the media industry. Gay rights? Please.

Cyber-security analyst Kate McCarthy knows something ominous is about to happen in the US banking system. She has a place to go if things get hectic, but it’s far from the perfect retreat. When a new breed of computer virus takes down America’s financial network, chaos and violence erupt. Access to cash disappears and credit cards become worthless. Desperate consumers are left with no means to purchase food, fuel, and basic necessities. Society melts down instantly and the threat of starvation brings out the absolute worst humanity has to offer.

I liked some of Goodwin's stuff but his one is just silly. Plot holes you can drive a truck through and silly, moronic behaviour by the characters rings hollow. Foolishly bought the 2nd book thinking it had to get better. Ugh. Another credit wasted.

Kate has managed to survive a massive cyber attack that annihilated the US banking system. The societal collapse that followed in the wake of the attack has already claimed the lives of millions, including members of Kate’s own family. The government has instituted a temporary solution, but another wave of computer viruses has just been found. This time, the malware is targeting America’s power grid. To make matters worse, Kate inadvertently killed the leader of a violent local gang, and there’s a price on her head. Trouble and peril await her at every turn.

I've liked some of the other Goodwin titles but this series is pathetic. Plot nonsense and characters that are so thin thats its almost laughable. Brother is bad? Why kick him out of the house and then have the nephew kill him. Come on. Lets have something that is believable here. Made a real mistake buying book one and I thought book two has to get better. Nope! How do I get a refund???

I used to enjoy the Gray man books. Always a bit silly, but usually a good story and it held some suspense. I guess Greaney has run out of steam because his latest is just an unbelievable bore. The plot is absurd, there are so many plot holes (ah yes the Russian Spetsnaz troops - 30! can't keep 9 American special forces troops at bay, even though they knew they were inbound? As I got near the end of the book it was obvious Greaney was just typing nonsense, trying to finish it, screw it if it doesn't make sense. A good thriller works because it is believable, but Mission Critical just isn't. For example, an escaping spy gets an executive jet owner to fly her to the UK - and she says she will pay later. Come on. And it takes 12 hours to get from Washington to London. Even with fuel stops (why 3 not 2) he writes that it takes 12 hours? And who pays for the fuel at each stop?
Sad all around.

The only possible thing that could make Morgan's world even more difficult happened. The Japanese fleet off the coast of California was wiped out. An even that Morgan and friends and family only knew about because of the radio broadcasts from the Radio Free Redoubt. So far removed from them it barely warranted notice. That is until the Chinese retaliated by launching a nuclear counter-strike against Mac Dill Air Force base. This, did warrant their attention and had the potential to profoundly impact their lives.

I see why the writer uses a pseudonym- I would be embarrassed to have my name associated with such tripe. It must be his friends who wrote glowing reviews as even an illiterate would see this book for what it is, badly written boring nonsense. Do not go near it, even if given to you for free, stay far away.

As bad as some of his novels have been of late, this is the most pathetic to date. The plot was ridiculous and juvenile. But what topped it off was the narration which, by the use of thick, fake accents, was jarring to the ear. Thank God I was able to speed it up. What a waste of a credit!
