Nerve Attack: A Kolya Petrov thriller by S. Lee Manning is a suspenseful thriller featuring Russian-Jewish immigrant and former American intelligence operative Kolya Petrov on a mission to stop a unique and dangerous terrorist attack. The only person who has the key to stopping the attack is a childhood friend, Dmitri, a man whom Kolya helped put behind bars. He is willing to help stop the deadly attack, but on one condition: he wants a Cherry Garcia pint, ten million dollars, and his freedom, and he only wants to work with Kolya. Is he seeking an opportunity for revenge for what Kolya did to him ten years ago or can he really be trusted? Things seem normal until Kolya’s fiancée’s life, together with the lives of hundreds of people, is endangered.
Every day you discover a new terrific writer and S. Lee Manning has been a delightful discovery for me this year. In Nerve Attack, she gives what every reader expects from a gifted crime and terrorist thriller writer, creating characters that are multidimensional, emotionally rich, and a conflict that captures the attention of the reader. The story has strong psychological underpinnings and while this is a terrorist thriller with a conflict that escalates and involves world governments, the author does an impeccable job in creating two characters that shine through the story. The backgrounds of Kolya and Dmitri are so beautifully written that readers find it easier to understand both the internal and external conflicts and what drives these characters. The characters are deftly written, robust, and unforgettable, and apart from the key characters in the novel, readers will adore the way characters like Alex, Kolya’s fiancée, President Yuri, and Rzaev, amongst others, are written. You’ll love the intrigue, the strong and elaborately written conflict, the intricate plot, and the expertly accomplished dialogues in this thriller. Can’t wait to read more from this author.
