The Second Horseman by Kyle Mills

Title: The Second Horseman
Author: Kyle Mills
Publisher: St. Martins Press
ISBN: 031233575X
Genre: Thriller

If you love thrillers, you will truly enjoy this tale by talented author Kyle Mills. A real change of pace and a breath of fresh air in the genre.

Imagine yourself behind bars, prepared to serve a sentence for a crime you didn't commit, when you are suddenly expelled from the prison into a rainy night and no explanation is given. That is what happens to Brandon Vale. Caught between a rock and a hard place as the cliche says, he is forced to flee.

He has no plan, he has no resources, yet he arrives at a destination predetermined for him by the man who sent him to prison. Given no choice, Brandon is forced to do a job and expects his final reward will be a bullet in the back of the head. The job is to steal 200 million dollars to buy some bombs.

A cleverly plotted story, a hero who seems anything but as he works his way through this challenge to his inherent genuis for crime will hold your interest and you won't want to put the book down.

Loads of action with unexpected results, settings that take you into the story and an original look at the commission of a crime. I'm pleased to recommend this tale to any thriller or mystery buff who likes action and high drama in their reading. Enjoy. I did.
