In the Books featuring Regret No More by Seb Kirby

See? I bet you all thought I forgot about you this morning. Have no fear, I’m still here. (Yeah, that was pretty cheesy) I’m working on revamping my schedule now that I’m writing first thing in the morning. Hope I’m not driving you guys too crazy. Anyway, enough about me. On to the review.

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books featuring The second book in Seb Kirby’s James Blake series, Regret No More.

No one is safe from the past

James Blake and his family were safe – until he received the phone call that meant they knew where he was. A stolen Picasso lies at the root of an international conspiracy that reaches into the life of a prominent US politician with devastating consequences not just for him but for so many of those caught up in the crime. Wolfgang Heller, a ruthless assassin, is seeking to eliminate those who have any knowledge of the theft. James Blake must come out of hiding and face the threats to himself and his family by putting himself on the line.

As I’m sure you all remember, I’m a huge fan of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan universe but I’m also a lover of Frederick Forsythe and Ian Fleming. There are few things I enjoy more than sitting back with an entertaining espionage book. In that regard, Seb Kirby didn’t disappoint as I enjoyed this from the very beginning.

Writing this genre is challenging as there are enough details needed to make the novels believable that could fill their own encyclopedia. With that in mind, I have to admit that I was grateful this wasn’t a detailed as your typical Tom Clancy novel. The flow between facts and fiction was smooth and believable to the point I actually had to look up a couple of events to see if they happened. This was a fun read I had trouble putting down and look forward to reading more from this author.

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
