I have not been a die-hard fan of espionage thrillers, but this book has changed my perspective. Starting with the compelling storyline, followed by well-developed characters and blended with a swaying flow, it was hard to put the book down. Am a big fan of high-tech gadgets and this craving was well satisfied by the author. I highly recommend. –Amazon Review

What readers are saying about Think Fast or Die
***** – “Explosive and realistic.”
***** – “Memorable, believable characters and plenty of plot twists.”
***** – “This is a heart-pounding ride with a great narrative and interesting people and places. It’s set in the Middle East and from the start the main character Rick is deep undercover in the Pakistan desert. It’s got it all-antiques, guns and terrorist cells.”
*****- “I don’t normally read spy fiction, but the story and Clark’s writing style really drew me in. The main character, Rick, is rough around the edges but really knows how to get a job done. I loved reading about his “survival techniques” from in-field tactics to his personal addictions. He also encounters a myriad of interesting and varied characters in his journeys.
Clark paints vivid pictures of each setting, which helps to increase immersion and build tension. He takes readers through a journey in the Middle East to see the wonders and tragedies of their culture.
Highly recommended for readers interested in terrorist thrillers and espionage.”
