Review 5 of 5 Stars
I really enjoyed this book from start to finish and find that I very much like the Alex Benedict novels as a whole. It was a true mystery/thriller science fiction story and I loved it. I’m a big fan of mystery/thrillers and to have it all bound up in a science fiction story is almost more than I can ask for if it comes to getting everything you want out of a reading experience. Echo was very much my type of book. It was smart, suspenseful, had that gritty quality that allows you to suspend your disbelief and really get into a story. Both Alex Benedict and Chase Kolpath are fantastic companions to take on your adventure. They are smart, resourceful people who like getting at the answers. I hate to say too much and give away the ending which really makes the whole journey worth it. The intrigue and mystery will lead you upon an interesting path that takes you to an unexpected conclusion.
Reading this book has set me on a path of adventures with Alex Benedict and I hope you enjoy this book as well as others in the series as much as I did this one. I fully recommend it.
