Unauthorized Access is a very satisfying thriller. Different, yet very believable, Andrew McAllister has come up with one seriously scary scenario.
The story begins with a classic scene set-up – it is the only part of the book where the thriller label doesn’t apply. What starts up as potentially the best day in Rob Donovan’s life turns into his worst nightmare. He finds himself in jail for a crime he didn’t commit and, worst of all, no one seems to believe him when he insists he is innocent.
I won’t give away the plot, because the surprises just keep coming. Just when you think it cannot get any worse, some other twist makes Rob’s situation even worse. Andrew McAllister is a master of suspense and he’s got the changes in pace absolutely spot on. If you haven’t taken a break before the middle, forget it – you won’t want to put it down.
This book is a truly good read and I would recommend it to anybody who enjoys the thrill of a chase, of things gone wrong and of uncontrollable criminal power. You’ll be questioning more than who your friends might be after reading it. I enjoyed every minute of it. It gets five stars from me.
