I can tell you that after reading They’ll Call it Treason, I have come to realize that thrillers are an amazing genre. One that I have overlooked because I was confusing them with horror. Thrillers like this book are a heart racing, mile a minute thrill ride.
This one book was especially exciting and the characters were so human. They were endearing in a rough and ready way. Ethan Shaw was an FBI agent but he was also a man that had always mistrusted the too much government power type of situation. He thought it could lead to abuse and detriment to the citizens.
Shaw had that theory tested as he raced all over the South trying to escape being captured by his own people. The FBI and other departments came together when he is falsely accused of going rogue.
To tell you a little bit about what is going on, I will tell you that Ethan Shaw and his partner Jason Phelps have been tracking and trying to solve a string of murders all over the country of high powered political people. There are a few similarities but not enough to make a clear picture of the agenda of this mystery assassin.
While in Georgia to protect another possible target the story takes a turn and the reader meets who is partially responsible for the murders. Then the accusation is made that it is Ethan Shaw that has been responsible for these deaths. It gets worse. Terribly worse for Ethan. On a personal level as well as on an FBI agency level.
Ethan races to prove his innocence as well as protect those closest to him. With his agency turning the area over looking for him he is forced to do things he never would have believed himself capable.
Jordon Greene has really given Ethan and the other characters so much heart and soul while maintaining their strength. It is a marvelous story that keeps you so involved.
I know I was rooting for Ethan all the way through. There are other characters in this story that have just as much personality and drive that you feel for them almost as much as you do Ethan.
This story is so well written. I hope Jordon Greene writes another book soon. It would be awesome to have it be about Ethan or one of the other amazing people from this book. But either way I will certainly read another one of his books in a heartbeat. I can not recommend this book enough. It is really a book worth reading. The release date is May 10, 2016.
