The Placebo Agenda by Forrest Jones is a fast-paced, action thriller that will make you sit on the edge of your seat. Street Brewer is a reporter who joined a startup as a reporter. For Street, this was a good opportunity for him to make a comfortable enough living to be satisfied. Nothing was too challenging for him until Street was asked to go to Venezuela for a new story. He was the perfect person for the job, having already lived in Caracas before. However, setting foot in the country proved to be far more dangerous than he expected. Street was somehow a magnet for trouble, and it became worse when a stranger warned him to run for his life. However, Street could not run: he had a story to unfold and crimes to report. Would it cost him his life? Or was Street going to stop a war from ravaging a country?
Author Forrest Jones opened the story with a bang and introduced readers to a lot of suspense. The identity of the poor American woman was hidden for a reason, and readers get to explore that idea as the story progresses. I loved how the author never lets the pace slow down a smidge. The pace was fast, the narrative was immersive, and the overall feel of the story was great. I felt like I was reading the screenplay for an action movie. Street was just as interesting as his name, and he lived up to the hype the author built around him. From the moment Street was introduced, he had my attention. The descriptions of Venezuela, the political tension, the civil unrest, and the descriptions of the desperation Street felt were so real, I felt it. The Placebo Agenda was an incredible journey that I would recommend to everyone!
