Thriller Thursday

Currently I am reading:

Goodreads advises:

Amelia Gray has always been aware of ghosts, and now she travels all over the South cleaning up forgotten or abandoned graveyards. When an enigmatic yet haunted police detective asks for her help to trap a serial killer, their growing attraction constitutes the very gravest of threats.

So far it is quite good and worth the read.  I should be reviewing this book tonight or tomorrow.

The next book on my list is the very, very long awaited book:

Goodreads advises:

In the tradition of works by James Rollins, Preston and Child and Matthew Reilly, Ripper is the latest in an action-packed series about the nation’s most secret agency—The Event Group. In 1887, the British Empire contracted brilliant American professor Lawrence Ambrose to create a mutant gene to turn an ordinary person into an aggressive fighting machine. But all too quickly, Ambrose was found to be behind a streak of vicious murders, and  in a cover-up of massive proportions, Queen Victoria ordered the project, and Ambrose, terminated. Thus the legend of Jack the Ripper was born.

The killings stopped as suddenly as they had begun—but not because Ambrose was caught. Instead, he escaped and returned home to America where he and his formula faded into history. But in 2012, a raid against a Mexican drug lord uncovers a small cache of antiquated notebooks containing long-buried instructions to create blind killers out of normal men. Enter the Event Group and Col. Jack Collins, who are desperate to stop one of their most feared enemies. When the formula is loosed in the underground halls and vaults of the Event Group complex itself, brother will battle brother, and for the first time in many men’s brave lives they will understand the true meaning of fear.

The next heart-stopping chapter in the New York Times bestselling Event Group series, Ripper takes readers to new levels of suspense, where death could be hiding around any corner on this non-stop thrill ride.

OK, I will admit that when I ordered this book back on February 15, I did not know what the “Event Group” was about or that it was a series.  I have to say I’m not sure I would have purchased it if I did.  I don’t like starting series in the middle.  Plus I hate government conspiracies and the whole cloak/dagger kind of thing.  So I won’t swear that I’m going to like this book.  I loved his book “Supernaturals” though so I’m willing to give this one a try – although that one wasn’t part of this series.  I really hope I’m not disappointed – I’ve waited a long time for this book.
