Destroyer by Johnathan Rain and Christopher Wheeler is described as a terrorist thriller and it really is. But there is much more to this story that I expected. Johnathan Rain has never liked his boss, even though he sticks to his job which takes him away from his sweet Liza, who complains a lot that he is never home. Things just get bad — and I mean really bad — when the boss fires him without any good reason from his position in the accounting department. Now having put a decade into the company, he doesn’t see this as fair, and how can he explain it to his sweetheart who is pregnant? He’s been pushed to the edge, and what he’ll do will put everyone in danger, because everyone is selfish.

This is a story filled with drama, written in an unusual style which allows the drama and the dialogues to come across neatly. The first thing that caught my attention was the humor, the grim, biting humor. You won’t believe this is a thriller that deals with terrorism. Everyone seems to be mean to everyone, and John Rain epitomizes the hidden import of sarcasm and satire and grim humor. This story is loaded with intense drama and biting witticism. The writing is awesome and fits wonderfully well with the language of the souls of the characters. I loved the protagonist and his brother, Mike. I loved Liza and her desperate efforts to contain her husband. I enjoyed the fact that each line is loaded with wit, and that the common sense comes across the dialogues in a powerful wave.

After reading Destroyer, there is nothing I would like more that to watch this awesome satirical work on screen. This is a story that is original and begging to be read, because it’s too compelling to be ignored. It is written for mature readers, in a voice that is humorous, clear and with a clarion call. If you want a book that will lighten your mood and have you laughing your way through the pages, then pick this one.
