Black-Out is the 3rd and latest novel from the Riley Covington Series, written by Jason Elam and Steve Yohn. It is an action thriller, with Special Ops, international intrigue and even some football thrown in. This was the first book that I read from this series, and while it is clear that there had been previous books, reading them was not necessary to follow what was happening in this book. It was filled with drama, suspense, action and just a touch of romance. It drew me in immediately and kept me turning pages. The characters were very interesting and the faith element was strong, while not the least bit preachy. This book, and I’m sure, whole series, would be a great one for the guys to read, and I’m guessing for lots of the girls too! I truly enjoyed it and would like to read the other books in this series.
This book was provided to me for review by Tyndale House Publishers.
Jason Elam and Steve Yohn
Riley Covington is still reeling from his father’s brutal murder when he learns he’s been traded. Meanwhile, the counterterrorism division has detected a plot to detonate electromagnetic pulse bombs that could leave the U.S. without power, communications, and transportation—right down to dropping planes out of the sky. CTD scrambles to stop the attacks, but they run out of time. Amid the fallout, Riley, Scott, Skeeter, and CTD must regroup to make sure the second bomb doesn’t reach its destination.
