Larry Temple's 100 Days of Terror is a gripping terrorist thriller with compelling characters, a novel that will, undoubtedly, put fans of the genre on the edge of their seats. The US is riddled by a series of terrorist attacks, and what makes it even more frustrating is the fact that no one knows where the next attack will happen — but what is certain is that it will be in less than twenty-four hours. FBI agent Noah Reardon and his team have very little to work with, and while these attacks seem to show links to time in Afghanistan, they are well-calculated and coordinated to leave no traces behind. While the clock ticks, fear mounts, and the investigative team works feverishly to gather the information to help them stop the next attack, but can they?

Larry Temple is another master storyteller and 100 Days of Terror establishes his trademark in the terrorist thriller genre. Agent Noah Reardon is a rock-solid character, written with a great background story, a man who has his own personal demons to fight. He has served in Afghanistan and the memories still haunt him, and while he comes across as someone determined to stop a devastating terrorist attack, he also demonstrates a strong urge to redeem his past. The plot is strong, the action is intense, and the sense of despair increases through each page, and it's this sense of hopelessness that transforms the story into a page-turner.

There is a lot in this book for readers — a unique and strong narrative voice, multi-dimensional characters, a well-structured plot, and a powerful conflict. The conflict is what drives the story and the author's sense of character enriches the narrative. The protagonist is a man who is flawed and who carries the weight of his past with him. I loved the way the author explored this part of him. The prose is crisp and it showcases the drama beautifully. This is the book for you if you're looking for great writing, sophisticated characters, and a story that compels you to turn the pages.

An excellent first outing by Larry Temple! Thoroughly enjoyed it. Full of action and an unexpected twist. Can’t wait for his next book.
