An Adam Weldon Thriller

***** A nail biting adventure —- Review by Rox Burkey

Mr. McGinnis takes readers on an exciting sailing adventure throughout the Greek Islands. The tastes, sounds, and locations kept the excitement ramping from one wave to the next as Adam Weldon, Tripnee, and Sophia chased Islamic terrorists. The ports illustrated the lifestyles of the rich and famous with various expensive watercraft, local music, and delicious dining locations as a cover to get the radicals before they strike. The sailing techniques were delivered like scenes of a movie based on first-hand experiences. Citing book pages and verses highlighted the beliefs that added to the continual story tension.

Each cast member was relatable and believable from the carefully teased descriptions, actions, reactions, and snappy dialogue. Adam Weldon is incredibly resourceful, with a strength of character and conviction not often found. Listeners and readers get drawn into the story with the harsh truth that failure was not an option. The hardships each member endures quicken the listener’s heartbeat and fears that one of the good guys won’t recover. To accomplish the final goal, the cat-and-mouse race keeps the solution obscured until the unbelievable end.  

Narrator, voice action Tristan Wright delivers an outstanding performance. The perfect accents for the characters, flawless intonations, and tempo added to the action-packed adventure. The sounds of bullets, rapid-fire machine guns, and other sounds came to life. Cyclops Conspiracy stands on its own, but Adam Weldon is a character you should follow in this runaway success series. Fans of Action and adventure thrillers will thoroughly enjoy this from start to finish. Well done.
