Sleeper's Run by Henry Mosquera Review

This is the first book review I've ever posted, and (in my opinion), it's a good one.  I just finished reading Sleeper's Run by Henry Mosquera, which is classified in the "political thriller" genre.  I found it to be action-packed, fast-paced throughout most of the story, and really interesting.

I don't want to give away too much of the plot, because I think the book is the most exciting when you don't know what's coming.  It's about a man named Eric Caine, who unbeknownst to him, becomes embedded in a political agenda.  Caine is a former Special Operations airman in the Air Force and IT specialist, and throughout the novel he utilizes his quick wits, intelligence, and combat skills to evade his enemies.

This book was a real page-turner for me.  It started out a bit slow, but after about 30 or so pages the plot really picks up.  The middle chunk has tons of twists and turns, which makes it exciting.  Even though there are a lot of plot twists, I still found that the story was easy to follow.  It started to slow down a bit for me in the last 100 pages, but it was never boring.  I found the ending to be slightly predictable, but it wasn't unsatisfactory.  I was especially interested in Eric Caine's story because I've always been interested in military/political type stories.

The only real gripe I had about this story was that it switched points of view.  The English major in me would have preferred a more fluid story told from only one perspective, instead of jumping from Caine's point of view to an omniscient narrator, and back to Caine again.
The novel is 350 pages long, and available for purchase on, Kindle, iBookstore, Nook, Sony Reader, and Kobo.  It costs $9.99 for paperback, $2.99 for ebook.  Below are the ISBNs:

ISBN: 978-0615505442 paperback
978-1-937563-05-9 MOBI
978-1-937563-06-6 EPUB

Bottom Line: I highly suggest reading Sleeper's Run if you're a fan of thrillers.  If you like stories like the Bourne movies, I think you'll really like this.  It's a great read and really intriguing.
