“It isn’t difficult to develop a great liking for the protagonist — she is strong, real, and genuinely flawed.
Project Amber: The Milestone Incident by Carl Lakeland is a powerful thriller that melds the elements of suspense and crime fiction to give readers a tremendous ride. Meet Angel, a clever and unflinching journalist who would do anything to get a good story out. Her work is very satisfactory and she enjoys the limelight into which it thrusts her, but things aren’t going to be the way they have always been. She suddenly discovers a very sinister plan, a secret buried in the heart of Australia, and the world could be about to be hit by its consequences. What is more alarming is that Angel’s life has been planned and manipulated without her being aware of it. Does she have what it takes to face the truth and fight the evil that could destroy the world as she knows it?
Carl Lakeland takes readers across beautiful landscapes and well-documented Australian settings to follow the story of a compelling woman poised against a complex and powerful enemy. I enjoyed the plot and the surprises that are reserved for readers. It isn’t difficult to develop a great liking for the protagonist — she is strong, real, and genuinely flawed — and the internal conflict she experiences is overwhelming. There were moments I felt pain for her, moments I literally got worried that something awful could happen to her, and this feeling accompanied a great portion of my reading experience. Project Amber: The Milestone Incident is intelligently plotted, brilliantly imagined with compelling characters, and executed to a great and triumphant finish. You can’t stop reading until the very last page.
