Rating: 5 stars
The New Illuminati by David-Michael Harding is a stunning yet explosive read. We all have imagined a way for the powerfully rich who are corrupted to suffer. Yet nothing ever happens bad to them. Suddenly, a group of people, decide to take matters into their own hands. This is one political crime thriller all will want to read. The action is fast, the risks are high, and the danger is real.
When I read this title, I was intrigued. I wondered okay this sounds good…and what happens. From the beginning to end I was thrilled. David-Michael Harding’s writing has a way of sucking me in and leaving me holding my breath. The plot could end in so many ways. The intrigue was killing me. Not knowing what the consequences will be or how far the group was willing to go kept me on edge. There has to be a line drawn somewhere. Clayton Rand is a fascinating character to follow. His journey is one enormous thrill ride. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to all. The New Illuminati is definitely a must read.
