Michael Walsh's Hostile Intent is his first thriller. He's previously written music criticism and a few novels, including a sequel to Casablanca called As Time Goes By. In Intent, he introduces Devlin, a super-spy so secret that when the novel opens, even the President doesn't know he exists. Devlin is called in when terrorists invade a school in an Illinois town and hold hundreds of students and teachers hostage. He in turn calls on his special operations unit, who only know him by phone and Michael Walsh's Hostile Intent is his first thriller.

It starts with the most horrific act of terrorism ever committed on American soil. Only one man can stop them. It starts with the unthinkable-the most horrific act of violence ever committed on American soil. He's their most lethal weapon. and their most secret.

Six pages into Hostile Intent and I began to feel uneasy. By page nine I'd been punched in the gut.

Speeding east on Franklin, weaving in and out of traffic like an ace pilot, his mind raced faster than his car. Surely, Powers must have known what was coming-why else would he have called?

Michael Walsh wers had had him and his family under his kid, for chrissakes!-the whole time, ever since the poisoned gift had arrived. That fucking Skipjack. How could he have been so stupid? He had trusted this guy, bonded with him-insofar as you could bond with a man you’d never actually met face to face. But they’d been on a half a dozen missions together, and each one.

First things first, I took off a half a star for the slow start and some confusing bits trying to sort out names and aliases along with some distasteful thoughts I think are inappropriate for a "good guy" whose job it is to protect the US from those who would harm it. That being said, it wasn't a bad book. I wasn't sure at first whether I would read the neext two books in this trilogy, but I am more likely to with the way the book ended. I don't generally read books that are this serious and filled with quasi-real-world problems. I got it for free 3 years ago for my Kindle, so I gave it a shot. My only real problem is that the omnibus edition of the trilogy is cheaper as a whole than buying the second and third books separately, especially now that tax is charged. I try to avoid having multiple copies of the same book on my Kindle, but it's a cost saving measure. If you like hardcore governmental intrigue and spy related books, this might be the book for you. The main character, while having some distasteful thoughts, is sort of interesting in a way when you know his history. Give it a shot if this is the kind of book you like. It's interesting at some points and they outweigh the bad parts enough for a good, but not perfect, rating. I won't bore you with a plot summary as I know other reviewers are fond of doing that. Have at it if you're ready for such a ride.

This book begins with Hope and her children, and a difficult day. What I found unusual, is that we didnt hear much about these people until the book was nearly finished. I had expected Hope to play a greater role. Without revealing the plot, I found it difficult to understand what, why, and how we arrived at the outcome for her daughter.

I did like the characters. It was sometimes difficult to work out who they all were, especially since some had more than one name - codenames, alias, etc. But, overall they were enjoyable.

What I thought was unnecessary where the references to the Beslan school massacre in Russia. I dont think it is ok to use the misery of others, and children, in a work of fiction.

The storyline was intriguing, provocative and intense. Unfortunately, I found the writing style to be cumbersome and verbose. There was too much unnecessary detail, as if the writer wanted to impress you with his intimate knowledge of military and clandestine operations, or just that he wanted the book to be a certain length so he added excessive adjectives and descriptions. He wrote paragraphs where a sentence or two would have sufficed which overwhelmed the point he was trying to convey. The characters in the book were interesting whether villain, hero or bit-player. I might try a second book by this author to see if the shortcomings diminish in later books and, if not, will probably remove from my reading list.

Very well written fast paced thriller. This was a book I got for free and the kindle store and I am always happy when they turn out not to be a Christian preachy book. Those is most of the books that are free and I get a third if the way in before they start getting all preachy. This is a story of a few different terrorist plots based in the US and one man is in charge if stopping. While not as good as a Clive Cussler or a Matthew Reilly book, this one literally starts out with a bang in an elementary school and goes very quickly after that. I read this very quickly and will look for other books by this author.

"Hostile Intent" is a very readable techno-thriller, set in an America and western world that the author seems to think are not long for this world. The story is fast-paced, but sometimes difficult to follow at times. My main criticism of this novel is the author's assumption that the US Government is essentially a thugocracy and that it should, indeed, be one. This dark vision permeates the story. While the US Government, like all big governments, has its dark side, here it is exaggerated in a manner that somewhat robs this story of authenticity. For example, there is a part where the President assigns a secret service detail to accompany, and threaten to kill, one of his political rivals. Doubtful.

On the other hand, this one moves at a fast pace and holds the reader's interest. These days many novels fail to do this, including Tom Clancy's last two novels. This one is worth a try by aficionados of the techno-thriller genre. RJB.

After Tom Clancy quit pumping out his Jack Ryan novels I floundered until Vince Flynn came along. I made due with an occasional Brad Thor novel or even the Bourne relaunches - but I can honestly say this is the closest to satisfying my Spy Thriller jones (outside of Vince).

In many ways Walsh expands the genre by pushing the action and jeapordy much farther but then, this could be due to the infancy and infatuation he has with a new character he has to develop.

I love any novel that makes me go to the dictionary (periodically - not every freakin' page) but it was a minor annoyance that he used two words not common to the average reader TWICE - which momentarily broke the 'reverie' I was enjoying.

I also was lost on one major plot point (even after re-reading it), but these were all minor annoyances set against a very enjoyable 3 days of reading.

I look forward to 2nd in the series to see if it holds up!

I stopped reading this halfway through. I just couldn't take one more Whiz Bang invention or improbable plot device to get the "hero" out of a jam. Suspension of belief is one thing but this one required either being drunk or severely medicated to remain interesting- neither of which I was going to do.
This book will keep you in suspense, not knowing exactly who's who and what side they're fighting for. For most, including myself, the final outcome isn't revealed until you have almost completed the book!
