Todd's Guardians by C. Edgar North is a thriller espionage novel with an exciting plot to keep you entertained for hours. Todd Harris was a brilliant scientist who specialized in nuclear bomb design and electronic miniaturization. Lately, however, his life had been sad and lackluster. His fiancée left him, and he was diagnosed with cancer. Depressed and losing hope, Todd’s sister advised him to take a lectureship in Thailand for a change of scenery and to make his life less bleak. Contrary to what Todd thought, he loved Thailand and its natural beauty. With the CIA keeping him safe, Todd chased risks that he otherwise wouldn’t. However, he had no idea that Pakistan had its sights on him to enhance its nuclear weapon program. The CIA knew it and decided to use Todd as a pawn. The only thing: Todd had no idea. What would he do? Would he play into the hands of two countries, or would he carve out his own future?
I love thriller novels, especially those set in countries that I know. I was very happy when the author used appropriate colloquial terms and was honest about the Thai culture and trends. The story was fast-paced, filled with action and little anecdotes that made me laugh. The action was very much present in the narrative and made the story very interesting. The chapters were succinct but they worked in favor of the pacing of the story. Todd was very resilient, he understood he might not live a long life and he wanted to make the best of the time available. The descriptions were kept short yet direct. I did not have to comb through pages and pages of paragraphs to get the information I needed. Author C. Edgar did a good job of writing a complex story without making it so. Action-packed and entertaining!
