Book Review-Deadly Secrets: The truth will out... (Gavin Shawlens Thriller #1) -Gordon Bickerstaff

Tuesday, June 13, 2017


This book is not for the faint of heart! It starts out a bit slow then before you know it it speeds up at the speed of light!! This author certainly knows how to write thrillers. You will find yourself shivering at some of the images invoked. The twists and turns are varied and MANY!! No way will you ever guess the ending. This is the first in a series and once my heart stops pounding--I will be getting more of them.


About the Book: (from Amazon)

The truth will out…

Gavin's life will be turned upside down. He joins a company to work on a product that will revolutionize the food industry. His initial gut instinct is to walk away until he discovers one of the company directors is the former love of his teenage life.

The financial implications are global and incredible. Powerful individuals and countries are prepared to kill as they compete to seize control of the company. Corruption at high levels, a deadly flaw in the product, and the stakes jump higher and higher.

Against overwhelming odds, Gavin must rescue his former love from the hands of an evil cult as they prepare her for a living nightmare.

'... doesn't have twists - it has hairpin bends!'
'... an intricate fast paced modern day thriller'
'... will appeal to readers who like intricate plots'
'... plot kept me guessing what will happen next'
'... weaved it all together masterfully'

About the Author: (from Amazon)


I was born and raised in Glasgow but spent my student years in Edinburgh. On summer vacations, I learned plumbing, garden maintenance, and I cut the grass in the Meadows. I learned some biochemistry and taught it for a while before I retired to write fiction. I do some aspects of DIY moderately well and other aspects not so well. I live with my wife in Scotland where corrupt academics, mystery, murder and intrigue exists mostly in my mind. I have written the Gavin Shawlens series of thrillers: Deadly Secrets, Everything To Lose, The Black Fox, and Toxic Minds. More will come in due course. I enjoy walking in the hills, 60s & 70s music, reading and travel.

Anyone who loves "House of Cards" will surely love this novel as well. Maybe aren't the same polical themes as the TV series, but it has corruption and people ready to anything to achive their goals. On my summer TBR list!

Laura Steiner said...

I have a hard time sticking to a book that is slow at the beginning. We'll see.
