Have your thirst for action-adventure quenched with John H. Cunningham's Buried in Orange. Buck Reilly is all set for a romantic getaway with his ex-wife when his old friend, recently knighted Sir Harry Greenbaum, calls in a favor and asks him to join him in Monza, Italy, where Harry is about to acquire a portion of the historic Williams Racing team in Formula 1. Buck and his partner Ray fly over to Monza, where Harry ends up being kidnapped by a nefarious syndicate who wants him to allow them to be co-investors in the team. Meanwhile, Buck learns that Harry has chosen him as his successor and that time is running out before Harry's deal is canceled. Buck and Ray employ an audacious plan involving a Trojan horse to rescue Harry. However, the blowback can kill thousands of innocent people.

A perfect combination of action, adventure, sleuth mystery, and edge-of-your-seat thrills make Buried in Orange an immensely absorbing novel. John H. Cunningham doesn't take much time to get the reader into the thick of things, and it's a non-stop wild rollercoaster of a ride from the get-go. Cunningham's witty dialogue and humor keep the narrative tone light-hearted, yet you feel the stakes during the action sequences, particularly near the end of the book. But it's the characters who are the show-stealers. Each character is well-crafted and has a distinct personality. I particularly enjoyed Buck's father/mentor dynamic with Harry. Ray and Heather also have good supporting story arcs that add layers to Buck's character. This is the kind of book that action adventure lovers will want to read. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and you will too!
