Today I am happy to be featuring J F Kirwin's latest novel, the thriller, 37 Hours. There is also the chance to win a £20 Amazon Giftcard (International- details at the end of the post).
 
After two long years spent in a secret British prison, Nadia Laksheva is suddenly granted her freedom. Yet there is a dangerous price to pay for her release: she must retrieve the Russian nuclear warhead stolen by her deadliest enemy, a powerful and ruthless terrorist known only as The Client.

But her mysterious nemesis is always one step ahead and the clock is ticking. In 37 hours, the warhead will explode, reducing the city of London to a pile of ash. Only this time, Nadia is prepared to pull the trigger at any cost…

The deadly trail will take her from crowded Moscow to the silent streets of Chernobyl, but will Nadia find what she is looking for before the clock hits zero? 



My Thoughts

Fast paced and full of twists and turns, the plot carries you along and ties up the loose ends, then scatters a few more for next time. There is to be a third in the series and you are led smartly on, anticipating what comes next. The suspense is built beautifully in several key scenes and I did find myself holding my breath at times! 

    The main character, Nadia, is easy to like. You get to see behind her professional role and see her family relationships. She is tough and yet vulnerable and there is plenty in the story to show you more than one side of her. This is a book where most of the supporting characters have their own back-stories and they all have a role to play in the action. 

    I found the style of writing easy to get into and there are no clunky plot moments- it all flows perfectly. It is easy to visualise the action and I am sure it would lend itself to the film media. Strong characters and robust plotting makes for an action packed read and it is perfect for those who love this genre of spy thrillers. 

In short: a high energy read where emotions and action compete.


About the Author

J.F. Kirwan is a writer for Harper Collins, under their HQ digital imprint. By day he works in aviation and nuclear safety, but at night, during bouts of insomnia, he writes thrillers with significant body counts. He’s an ex-diving instructor, so there is an underwater element in each of his two novels, 66 Metres and 37 Hours. Most readers find his writing has a cinematic feel, as if you are there with the characters. The original inspiration for the protagonist, Nadia, came from Stieg Larsson’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, though David Baldacci and Lee Child have had significant impact on the writing style, plotting and pace. He is currently writing the third book in the series.
