Book Review: Blown Circuit by Lars Guignard


Blown Circuit

Michael survived China. Barely. But now he's got bigger problems. A pair of coordinates broadcast on an obscure frequency have brought Michael to Istanbul, Turkey where credible chatter has emerged that a terrorist group plans to use a devastating device to hold the world hostage.
Designed by Nikola Tesla, arguably the greatest inventor of the Twentieth Century, the device is experimental, it is capable, and it has been missing for almost sixty years. If Michael is to prevent a catastrophe, he'll need to get to the device before the Conspiracy or risk upsetting the global balance of power forever. Of course, !nding the Tesla Device is one thing, knowing whom he can trust with it is another matter entirely.
To survive, he'll have to do both. If he doesn't, what started as a bad day is about to become a disaster.
Can Michael fight his way through the lies and deception to save the world?
If you can't get enough of the action of Lee Child and Vince Flynn, the intrigue of Robert Ludlum, and the adventure of Clive Cussler and James Rollins, you are going to LOVE Blown Circuit!


I had previously read another book by the author - Zoe and Zak & the Ghost Leopard and quite enjoyed it. This book however, puts the author in a totally new dimension. I didn't read the first book - Lethal Circuit but it didn't really matter and I was able to follow this book well. It is an independent book really.
The book has a lot of action and suspense and is definitely a fast paced read. Beware though - make sure you have enough time to read it all at one go as you will find it hard to put down.
The characters are well created and the entire story is very well written. Michael is a very likeable character and his character is someone that one roots for.
Exciting places to visit, terrorists, moles in the CIA - whats not to like?
A very exciting read and highly recommended.
