When readers decide to tackle a lengthier action novel, the author had better know what he/she is doing. Well, that’s one thing fans of award-winning novelist Chuck Morgan never have to worry about. Here’s an author whose action-filled plots leave you breathless, ever wondering what will happen next and keep surprising you. In Crime Exploded, all the action takes place over one traditionally peaceful week: Christmas. Family festivities are suddenly shattered by multiple bombings, including a mosque. Presuming this is the work of terrorists, the police, the FBI, and Buck Taylor of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation spring into action. Taylor’s team senses that the evidence isn’t pointing to whom the FBI suspects. When all the surprising connections emerge to the surface, Morgan hurtles readers toward an explosive and satisfying conclusion.
While Crime Exploded is more plot than character-driven, one realizes just how easily love and brotherhood within mob families can be destroyed by greed and the desire for power. Personal motivations are a key part of this novel, yet it is only after the exciting action ends that you find yourself thinking more about the characters than the plot. Impeccable writing skills, no unnecessarily long backstories, and truly clever plotting make Crime Exploded a read worth every minute of your time. Don’t be surprised if, after you’re done, you find yourself checking out the previous seven novels in the Buck Taylor series. They all look really good!
