Best Steve P. Vincent Books
The Foundation: One of the best books to be authored by Steve. P Vincent is the Foundation. The Foundation is Vincent’s debut thriller, which introduces the reader to the protagonist, Jack Emery. Jack Emery is not only worldly-wise but is also moody most of the time; something that you will expect from someone who has gone what he went through. In this installment, Jack is more than determined to ensure that the leader of a shadowy organization does not get away. The author, Steve P. Vincent makes use of many standard devices that are common of a murder mystery protagonist that is ruthlessness and fearlessness. He combines all these devices to come up with a non-military type storyline.
However, the author has included a twist by making Emery somehow laid back despite his fearlessness something, which is out of the norm. Emery is not only dodged, but he is also human, thus when you kick him, he will definitely feel pain. The protagonist, Emery by using old-fashioned fact-finding journalism tries to uncover the truth in a world that is full of politics, power hungry lunacy, and greed. With that said, The Foundation has been well crafted by the author. It is also a fast paced story which is full of high risk and high octane action. This is a great premise, which features a brilliantly entangled plot, which is full of relatable and realistic characters. State of Emergency is also another book in this series that has also performed extremely well.
State of Emergency: While the first book in the series looked at the theme of corruption, using an organization to fully bring out the idea, the second installment, State of Emergency looks at another issue, the use of a government arm to promote a political or personal agenda. The scenario is not only sobering but also realistic, which plays out as a new president panic after a series of attacks on America. Due to the colossal amount of pressure that he was under, the president decides to hand over control to the competent, extremely calm and unassuming FEMA lead administrator. At the time, this appeared to be a reasonable solution.
After the country had been handed over to FEMA, its first task was to remove the rights of the citizens. Curfews were not only placed but also control of the media and restrictions of the sale of alcohol was also instituted. Instead of the local police force, the State Guard was instead called to uphold law and order and also to protect key sites. Many of the times, the work at hand was too much; thus they struggled to manage the prison camps and the fallout due to the rationing. As portrayed in all of Vincent’s novels, the threat was usually large while the resistance was extremely small. The world that was created in this installment required a hero, and Jack was that hero.
The great thing is that Jack is supported by the citizens, other journalists and a FEMA official, who even placed her life on the line, so as to expose what the country was facing. Just like the first installment, the action in the State of Emergency is high octane. With that being said, State of Emergency is a well-crafted story, which is full of action, rat cunning and plot twists, which will satisfy any person who is looking for a great escape. Furthermore, this is a great thriller, which shows that Vincent is not afraid to handle any big issues such as corruption and political mischiefs. The Jack Emery book series is a series that you will love reading.
