Special Means is a work of fiction in the thriller and suspense sub-genres and was penned by author Andrew Ceroni. Written for adult audiences, the work contains some instances of graphic violence and the use of explicit language. When a somewhat naïve first-term president accepts an offer from covert ops to help him eliminate gang violence, one brave CIA agent is about to discover that this solution hides agendas that are far worse than the original problem. What results is a high-octane thrill ride as Agent Dave McClure investigates a deep-black program and finds a conspiracy that could topple American civilization as we know it, and end his life in the process.
Author Andrew Ceroni has crafted a superb and highly enjoyable thrill ride which encompasses all the core ingredients of a truly gripping thriller tale. The complexity of the plot is impressive, and Ceroni stays firmly in the driver’s seat of the narration to be sure that his audience gets the right exposition at the right time, deepening the mystery but balancing the pace of the action so that there’s never a dull moment. I was also very impressed with the dialogue, which characterizes both McClure and the people who help or hinder him on his mission and saves us some time in character development as we get to know them through their realistic manners of speaking. Overall, Special Means is a well-crafted and superbly-paced thriller novel that I would highly recommend for military, suspense, and conspiracy fiction fans alike.
