Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New Book on the Shelves – Twenty-Four Days (Rowe-Delamagente Thriller Book 2) by J. Murray

Delighted to welcome J. Murray to the bookstore with her most recent book Twenty- Four Days (Rowe-Delamagente Thriller Book 2).

About Twenty-Four Days.

In the latest Rowe-Delamagente thriller, the two unlikely partners have less than a month to stop a North Korean missile strike after hijackers steal nuclear warhead-armed submarines. If they don’t, the USS Bunker Hill, on a peaceful mission to observe a North Korean missile launch, will be in grave danger. Piece by piece, Rowe and Delamagente uncover a bizarre nexus between a man Rowe thought dead, a North Korean communications satellite America believes is weaponized, an ideologue that cares only about revenge, and the USS Bunker Hill (a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser) tasked with supervising the satellite launch. As the deadline looms, they call on the unusual skills of a quirky AI named Otto with the unique ability to track anything with a digital trail.

One of the reviews for the book

What do you get when you combine technology and espionage? Geek spies. This military/academia thriller novel has all the ingredients to keep readers invested in the characters’ plight to avert World War III.

J. Murray has written an amazing book. Twenty-four days finds Rowe and Delamagente racing against time to thwart the actions of jihadis. Having defeated Salah Mahud al-Zahrawi in To hunt a sub, Rowe and Delamagente find themselves involved in another act of terrorism.

The story starts with character, Eyad Obeid, who is a nuclear physics and becomes embroiled in a plot to destroy nuclear submarines. From there on, J. Murray takes you on a whirlwind story, introducing new jihadis commanded by al-Zahrawi, who supposedly was killed in book 1 or was he? [No spoilers here] I must say, it added to the suspense of the story. These jihadi recruits are certainly well-rounded characters as their convictions to destroy the ‘infidels’ comes across very realistic and frightening. In the meantime, Zeke Rowe, the ex-SEAL/professor is called upon to investigate at the expense of his and Kalian Delamagente’s tenuous relationship. Kalian despises the whole espionage fraternity following the events in book 1, and in spite of the FBI’s attempts to woe her and bring with her the incredible AI, Otto, she refuses. However, Delamagente finds herself a reluctant participant and the plot heats up when her son, now in college, gets entangled as well.

This was a great book, and I particularly enjoyed the suspense and fast-pace of the story. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy learning about navy protocols and espionage. I will be purchasing J. Murray’s spin off novel Born in a Treacherous Time, when it is published in 2018.
