I love a good suspense novel. That means smart and inventive. A book that doesn’t assume I don’t understand. Brother by James Fredericks is just that; an intelligent, fast paced, emotionally compelling story that throws in just enough roller coaster to make me smile.
Brother is about Chase and Jared Riordan. Identical twins who couldn’t be more different, and distant; but as they each face a manipulative and dangerous foe, they learn more about each other and themselves than they had ever expected to.
I loved every moment of this book. It was beautifully executed. James Fredericks shows us a varied range of emotion as we experience the bonds of brotherhood and the bonds of friendship. I love that the protagonists are completely different in so many ways and those differences are complex; the terms by which they live and the laws that rule them. Each character was rich and vibrant, beautifully adding to the story’s journey. If you love a great suspense/ thriller, please read Brother, you won’t regret it.
