Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “White Knight” by John H. Cunningham, Green Street, LLC, September 23, 2019, for Suzy Approved Book Tours
John H. Cunningham, Author of “White Knight: A Buck Reilly Adventure” has written a captivating, intriguing, intense, riveting, thrilling adventure and fast action paced novel. There are twists and turns, betrayals, danger, rescue, and murder. The timeline for this novel is the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters and events. The setting for this story is in the Virgin Islands and surrounding areas. The author describes his characters as complicated, complex, and motivated.
If Buck Reilly thinks that he can have just an ordinary vacation, he should know that is just not possible. After a disappointment, Buck witnesses a white streak hit a helicopter crash into the water. Dashing off, he is able to rescue one woman, who has a head injury. Buck takes her to his boat and helps her. First, the woman seems to have amnesia, but then as she regains her memory, she reveals that she is Giselle Huibert, the First Lady of France. Giselle fears for her safety and won’t let Buck call law enforcement or her home country. It appears someone was trying to shoot the helicopter down.
Buck realizes that he will have to be the one to find out the questions and answers to what is going on. This starts a cat and mouse chase to survive. The problem is who can be trusted? There is edgy suspense and I found myself page-turning to find Buck and Giselle in one dangerous situation to another more dangerous situation. I would highly recommend this suspenseful and high action novel.
