About the Book:

For Thea, kidnap is always personal – her brother’s life was nearly ruined when he was taken as a child.

When Thea Paris’s flight is hijacked over the Libyan Desert, her first priority is the two former child soldiers she is escorting to a new life in London.

As an international kidnap specialist, Thea Paris negotiates for hostage release as part of her job. She knows one wrong move could lead to deadly consequences.

After she is forcibly separated from the boys and the other passengers, Thea and her tactical team quickly regroup. And in their desperate search for the hostages that follows, unearth a conspiracy involving the CIA, the Vatican and the Sicilian Mafia, and a plot far more sinister than Thea could ever have imagined.

My Thoughts:


Skyjack, the second book in author K.J. Howe’s Thea Paris series is just as riveting as the first.  In this multifaceted thriller, the action never stops.

Skyjack is told from multiple perspectives, which gives the reader a bit more insight than any individual character has. I enjoyed the twists, action, and intricate plot.  However, I had hoped to see more of the Gabriella, Rif and even Thea, but a significant part of the plot was given to a story thread featuring a young Austrian named Johan.  While Johan’s story is key to the plot, Thea and her team are the biggest draws to this series for me.

The author’s thorough research, high action plot, and intriguing characters made The Skyjack an engaging read. The complex story lines that eventual intertwine make Skyjack a worthy read for action adventure junkies.
