Review of ‘Staged Fright (Bodies, #1)’ by Sameer Ketkar

Staged Fright (Bodies, #1)Staged Fright by Sameer Ketkar

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an interesting read. I enjoyed the storyline and the involvement of the CDC and Homeland security.

We meet Larkin and Tigh who head up the CDC team and are called in to investigate a murder–one with a terrorist twist. This leads to the arrival of Homeland Security and a hot agent that puts both Larkin and Tigh in a difficult spot. Larkin and Tigh are a married couple who also have quite the sexual appetite.

We also meet Larkin and Tigh’s three teenage children who all attend a prestigious private school with other geniuses. The story is kind of told from the youngest son’s point of view. Although there are many parts in the story that he is not involved in so it is told from the third person point of view.

I really connected with the youngest son, Neil as I felt he was the odd man out. Despite his best efforts, he was always one step behind but he never gave up trying and I respect that. He even ended up to be a pretty brave kid in the end.

I enjoyed the terrorist spin and the book kept me engaged from beginning to end. I felt the author had a strong beginning that really sank the hook in deep.

Excellent read! The characters were well developed and I enjoyed how it all turned out!
