I’m excited to tell you about this book because it’s totally my jam. I read it quickly, but also not. I don’t know if you’re like this, but when there’s a book that I really like, I equally don’t want to stop reading but also don’t want to keep reading because then it’s over and then it just makes me miserable. This book is fast-paced and interesting with a story that has some good twists and turns. It has some great characters—flawed and believable—and a fun element to it that adds interest and depth.
Sig Alert is described as a cross between a legal thriller and a detective saga. It is a story about Peter Dale and Darcy Garcia, who have just gotten married and just when everything seems almost too good to be true, they received an unusual phone call that dispatches them on a race for their lives among a menacing and threatening scheme, something they have never seen before.
First of all, I loved the concept of this book. I don't normally drift to this genre of books but when I read the synopsis, I knew I wanted to read it right away. Author David Scott triumphantly entwines today’s forefront technology into the descriptions, resulting in a story that is both timely and relevant. He also pulls out all the stops to take you on a wild ride through the gritty streets of Los Angeles. As the main characters slowly come to comprehend the treacherous actuality of their condition, they must continually steer a modern world immersed with legal red-tape and censored protocol. Darcy and Peter desperately grind to stop an attack on Los Angeles by terrorists.
It’s always invigorating to come across a book that provides more than just action. It actually has a message of social commentary at its central core. I don’t want to give too much away because I think this is a book that is fun and quick-moving. The story itself is interesting and varied. For those who enjoy a plot where trusting no one is the name of the game, this one’s for you. I think overall, it was a strong and interesting story. This is one you should definitely check out.
