So much of good storytelling is finding a new twist on common themes. In The Twisted Maze by Chris Black, a covert organization far more powerful than the Illuminati is pulling the strings that determine the fate of the world. The Founders have dedicated sixty years to the infiltration of the American government, law enforcement, military, and judiciary systems; quietly biding their time in silence for the day they will seize and take full control—and that time has come. As power struggles and the COVID-19 pandemic are upsetting the balance, the Founders make their move by trying to take possession of a cloaking device that they will use to detonate a nuclear device at the heart of the United States. Its inventor, John Crane, fears for his life. But his sister-in-law, a colonel at the British SAS, has a plan and will team up with an FBI special agent to stop what is undoubtedly an extremist group that has the means to succeed.

The story of secret societies has been told countless times in books and films. But The Twisted Maze takes it a notch higher when Chris Black decides that they take the forefront and not just work behind the shadows. Many of us have been fascinated by how secret societies operate and how much influence they wield in political power play. This is what Black has done to his conspiracy thriller, an excellent page-turner that doesn’t skimp on the necessary details and really grabs you by the neck. It’s a well-researched story, one that makes references to military tech and even classical literature. In the dynamics of gender roles, Black has opted to put a female protagonist in this action-packed thriller, and so far, it does not disappoint. I recommend this book to anyone who has a taste for well-structured thrillers.
