Deadvent Calendar by Ken Kirkberry is a novel of pure thrills. The whole story happens in 21 days in December and each day keeps the reader in suspense. The main protagonists are Sharon Mansell, a highly skilled agent of the newly formed World Communication and Security Team (WCST), and Carl Hughes, a GCHQ agent tasked with monitoring security surveillance of world communications. The story unravels on the first of December when a strange message pops up on his security screen, which simply says "Ho, Ho, Ho!" What follows is a nerve-wracking string of events that happen in many parts of the world to put these two talented agents in a race to save the world.

Ken Kirkberry's Deadvent Calendar is a roller coaster ride that will put to shame the longest and most dangerous roller coaster ride in any theme park in the world. The author does not waste time in putting his readers on the edge of their reading chairs. Fast-paced, one feels the urgency of the whole situation and the emotions of Sharon and Carl are palpable. In not so many words, we get a glimpse of how the secret anti-terrorism agencies work and it is nothing short of fascinating. And in the end, the story is all about love, jealousy, obsession, and human ambition - the thing that really makes our world go to the edge of oblivion. Deadvent Calendar is a novel that makes any Robert Ludlum novel a second choice and, believe me, you will never regret the choice.
