"Author K. A. Bachus has given readers a fabulous addition to
the Charlemagne files and I loved every moment of the ride. This is
espionage and a true thriller at its best. The plot is riveting and
packed full of action on every single page. The story is extremely
well-developed and the pace is perfect - there are no points where
things slow down to the point of wanting to skip a page - I was
glued to the story throughout. It is full of many twists and turns
that will keep every reader on the edge of their seat as they wait
to see what happens next. In addition, these characters are very
well-written. From the heroes to the villains (and sometimes it is
a little hard to tell which is which), each of them is perfect.
They all, also, have imperfections, which makes them come alive.
Add in the dialogue that is quite realistic and you have the
perfect mix to make a believable story.
"Goat Rope is definitely
a book that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a great thriller
that is packed with action, spies, and an excellent storyline.
Because this is book 10 and the first one I have read, I must say
that I am hooked and will be going back to read the other books in
the series - I want to learn more about this group of government
agents known as Charlemagne. — Kathy Stickles for
"Author K. A. Bachus has penned an intense experience in this
highly descriptive and fast-paced novel, offering a real sucker
punch of action and intrigue in a concise narrative style. The plot
is intricately woven with espionage, intrigue, and high-stakes
action and I was especially drawn to the unique parlance of the
narrative and characters to paint a realistically gritty world and
showcase the uglier side of humanity. The tension is palpable
thanks to clever pacing, twists, and no unnecessary additions, and
the characters are realistically flawed, making them deeply
relatable and less predictable than your typical heroes and
villains. The narrative keeps you guessing as alliances shift and
loyalties are tested, and I found the dialogue style hugely
effective in getting the plot across and conveying strong character
attitudes without the need for huge chunks of wordy prose. Overall,
Goat Rope is a compelling thriller that will keep you on the edge
of your seat from start to finish and I would definitely recommend
it for thriller fans looking for their next immersive read."
