Top Notch Conspiracy thriller – Reviewed in United States by Amazon Reviewer
This is the rare novel that seamlessly weaves together strands of a conspiracy thriller, drama, with biblical themes of Armageddon. Jonathan Marks hits the nail on the head with this one.
The protagonist of The Last Messenger is an MI6 agent named Richard Helford, a not altogether likable character – at least early on – and yet he struggles with problems and emotions that we all can relate to. I think this is Mark’s greatest achievement in this book – bringing this character to life on the page. Mark does a superb job of conveying what makes Richard tick.
All in all, this is a suspenseful and entertaining read. It will have you staying up to all hours of the night – you can’t put it down. Highly Recommended.
