PUSHING BRILLIANCE | Tim Tigner
Kindle edition | Action | Thriller | 375 pages
Released 14 July 2016
Some people are naturally brilliant, others have to buy it. What would you pay, to be one in a million?
Framed for murder and on the run, former Olympic biathlete Kyle Achilles is also in the crosshairs of assassins’ guns. Why? He has no idea. He’s fighting blind against two master strategists and one extraordinary invention–known as Brillyanc.
Achilles’ only ally is the other prime suspect, a beautiful Russian mathematician who is either the best or worst person to ever enter his life. Katya was engaged to Achilles’ brother — before he died.
Chasing clues while dodging bullets, Achilles and Katya race around the globe, uncovering a conspiracy conceived in Moscow, born in Silicon Valley, and destined to demolish both the White House and the Kremlin. Along the way a lost soul finds purpose, a broken heart confronts forbidden love, and America gains a new hero. – GOODREADS
Tim Tigner has just joined my list of authors to look out for. Pushing Brilliance is an action thriller that follows ex CIA Agent (and former Olympic athlete) Kyle Achilles. The plot is exciting and wonderfully constructed, leading us across the globe from east and west USA to the center of government in Russia.
Each time I need to select my next read it’s not an easy task. For some unknown reason, there have been too many times this year where I have made some unwise choices and been disappointed. The result, wasted time that could have been better utilized and a reduction of reviews I have posted this year.
As soon as I read the first chapter or Pushing Brilliance (as part of my decision to buy), I was hooked by the potential that it promised. Now, with the benefit of hindsight, It was a good choice and one for which I am grateful.
The author’s great research and attention to detail are evident as the plot moves from one twist to the next. Its underlying message of good over bad had me just as keen to find the answers as the protagonists. I wanted to be there beside them every step of the way as Katya joins Achilles to prove his innocence and solve the murder of his family.
I was firmly caught up in the web of mystery and intrigue and I have already purchased a copy of The Lies of Spies (Kyle Achilles #2) so I can continue the adventure.
Pushing Brilliance is a gritty, exciting and thrilling tale of murder, espionage, corruption, and the insatiable human thirst for power. Recommended for readers who love the thrill of the chase peppered with unexpected twists and turns.
