Death in the City of Bridges: A Miles Jordan Mystery Thriller
J.C. Ceron, author
NYPD Detective Miles Jordan puts work above everything, even his health. Joining an international task force entrusted with catching a renowned terrorist, the driven investigator flies to Venice to foil an assassination attempt on the visiting Israeli Prime Minister. But their plan to trap the cunning radical shatters when a key sleeper agent is shot dead in broad daylight. Determined to track down the sniper disguised as a monk, Miles clashes with the local commander when he’s accused of aiding the shooter. But with less than a week until the suspected hitjob and tensions rising in the team, the dedicated policeman is left with no other option than to put his own life on the line.

Assessment:

Plot/Idea: It’s clear from the start that no one can be trusted and everyone’s a potential suspect in this breakneck thriller. When an assignment goes south, Detective Miles Jordan and his partner, Vincent Santoro, are tasked with figuring out who the mole is. From the first pages action is key, and Ceron never loses sight of the twists and turns that make this genre so gripping.

Prose: The author’s sharp prose etches the tension of action scenes onto the page, with knife-edge dialogue and natural clues that build up to the killer ending.

Originality: The nearly perfect pace of Ceron’s writing blows this thriller out of the water, and just when readers think they’ve figured out the puzzle, Ceron throws in twist after twist, culminating in one wild ride. 

Character/Execution: Ceron’s characters are both classic and unique, and their backstories instinctively fall into place during the course of the novel. Miles offers readers an organic viewpoint of the plot’s trajectory through his first-person perspective, and readers will feel as if they are putting the pieces together right alongside him and his likable partner.
