My latest read was Wide Awake by Steven Konkoly. This is the third book in the Devin Gray series. I started this series last summer when the first book, Deep Sleep, was a Kindle First Read. This one was a very fast read. There was lots of military tech and action like the earlier books. It played off of themes in the current news cycle including an American civil war. The plot and story arc were predictable.
After taking out a sleeper network, Devin Gray and Marnie Young are picking up the pieces of their disrupted lives. But the gravity of the conspiracy they helped to cripple is sucking them right back into the black hole of violence and subterfuge that nearly consumed them. Another sleeper network is awake.
A progressive congresswoman dies in a car explosion, vaporized by an American kamikaze drone—the beginning of the mayhem to come. What Devin dismantled is being rebuilt. The plan: ignite a civil war in the United States and burn America to the ground.
Seeds of unrest are planted. Threats are escalating. The clock is ticking as Devin, Marnie, and an unconventional team of allies play a cat-and-mouse game across the country to stop a domestic nightmare from coming true.
