I enjoy a good mystery thriller and read them in my spare time. Occasionally, however, a book surprises me, and I find myself devouring it. John Gibson’s latest novel, Track Three, becomes one of those books. It is essentially a thriller with generous portions of suspense and mystery. Even before the reader reaches Chapter One, it becomes clear that this will be a different flavor novel. The first puzzling question is which character is the hero, or antihero in this case? Next, what exactly is the mystery? In Track Three, the action spans two continents with a gamut of characters from investigative journalists and government agents to elite politicians and young outcasts. They scuffle in the world of politics, secrets, journalism, blackmail, affection, and everyday family problems as the protagonists try to outwit their opponents. Track Three is a solid addition to the genre, and I found it both entertaining and thought provoking. This tale will be engaging to the attentive reader, and is most definitely worth one’s time.
