Review by: Brian Geddes on May 14, 2013 :
This novel is a superior political thriller. Agent John Kramer is a character torn apart personally by 9/11, and yet he maintains a moral code about what kind of line-in-the-sand to draw in regards to how he treats terrorist suspects and operatives. In a counter terrorism campaign he hooks up with Mossad agents who, on the other hand, seem like something out of the Transporter series of movies. Kill early, kill often.

There is an intense scene a little more than halfway through the book where Agent Kramer is with the Mossad agents and they have several operatives, including low-level support operatives . . . merciless. And Kramer moves a little further in a transformation of morals, ideals and codes.

This is one of the most realistic novels I've read on the internal struggles of being someone dealing with stopping terrorism, with lots of stuff at your disposal to stop it with, and just what that does to the mind, and the ambiguity of morals and values it causes.

In my usual evaluation of whether the Kindle version is worth more than a buck, asking the following questions 1) Did I struggle with language and syntax? 2) Were the characters someone I'd meet on the street or a cardboard stand I'd run into at the grocery store? 3) Did I feel I had a better grasp of the plot than the writer? 4) Would I have rather bought a candy-bar across the street at 7-11?

This one shines on 1-4, running on all cylinders. It's fully worth $6.99, and I'd pass up a bottle of Zachary Boone for it too.

Review by: Lucas McWilliams on May 12, 2013 :
SHADES OF TERROR is a thrill ride from beginning to end. Terrorists attacks are coming and the man hunt kicks into full gear. I thought back to the 9/11 attack as I read. I remembered where I was on that horrible day and how I felt. I remembered flying just a week after the disaster and seeing US soldiers at the airport with M16s. It was a crazy time and SHADES OF TERROR brought a new storyline to life to thrill me.

Full of detail and a believable scenario of terror. Supported with true to life characters who feel real. Mr. Levitan has crafted a real wining story.

I've been looking for a book like this one and I'm so glad I stumbled across this one. With all of the current events on terrorism, it's nice to read fiction that is laced with the facts from 9/11. What is so great about this book is that is believable. These fictitious events could take place, which make the book scary as well(though I hope and pray nothing like these events ever take place).

I also like how the author uses completely unique ideas and builds upon past events. He weaves his story like a pro and made me worried for all of the people in the book the entire time. The characters in this book were so well developed. I was impressed with the attention to detail that he gave to everything, especially the minds of terrorists. I hope the author has more books like these planned for the future.
