Thirty Seconds to Live (The Blackwell Files Book 10) by Steven F Freeman

One speedboat crash...15 victims...and 30 seconds before you die.

A jet-boat crash sets in motion a frantic investigation to find the saboteur. But with 15 fatalities, simply identifying the intended victim among the crowd proves a challenge.

As the search for the killer continues, other victims succumb to "accidental" deaths - including the lead New Zealand investigator.

Left in the cross hairs, Alton and Mallory race to unravel the mystery before the murderer can strike again. But will the Blackwells, like each of the victims, have only thirty seconds to live?

This is the 10th book in The Blackwell Files. Although these books are a series, they can be read as a stand-alone. 

I began reading the Blackwell files somewhere in the middle of the series and enjoyed the engrossing storyline and likeable characters (except for the baddies of course) so much I am gradually reading the earlier books as well as the new stories as Mr Freeman publishes them.

Thirty Seconds to Live is one of my favourites of the series to date. Multiple, seemingly unconnected murders, using different means, travel to various countries and state of the art technology are the basis of the changing direction of the investigation.

The author’s imagination, fast pace writing style, clever dialogue and short chapters have the reader turning the pages to read “just one more chapter”.

There are a lot of characters but all essential to the story and not difficult to follow. There is also no swearing or sex scenes.

This book was provided to me by the author for free for an honest and unbiased review.

My rating 5*
