I was really interested why the title was Sleeper’s Run when I got my copy of this novel. Sure was, there’s a deeper meaning to it.
War on Terror veteran, Eric Caine, is found wandering the streets of Miami with no memory of the car accident that left him there. Alone and suffering from PTSD, Eric is on a one-way road to self-destruction. Then a chance meeting at a bar begins a series of events that helps Eric start anew. When his new job relocates him to Venezuela-the land of his childhood-things, however, take an ominous turn as a catastrophic event threatens the stability of the country. Now Eric must escape an elite team of CIA assassins as he tries to uncover an international conspiracy in which nothing is what it seems.
It’s really good, Sleeper’s Run being Mosquera’s first novel. Fast-paced action was present and the details were comprehensive. I love how meticulous the assassination thing occurred and it awed me how complicated the whole set-up happened. Mosquera did well on researching his topics.
Although I’m an alien to political terms and military stuffs, and I admit having some trouble on it while reading, I am still grateful to have the opportunity to comprehend on it in the end. The twists kept me entertained (and made me lost some nights of sleep). But it’s worth it. I learned a lot of new stuffs and things about the how the government and other organization thinks.
What I personally like about this was the whole hacking fad. It was really interesting on my part, and it’s one of the reasons I was glued on reading this.
Over-all, great job! Definitely recommending this to military and political thriller readers. But if you’re not one, you’ll definitely become.
