Never Go Alone book review Denison Hatch‘s latest book is titled Never Go Alone…  A Jake Rivett Thriller. In Hatch’s last Jake Rivett novel, his first, we had a compelling bank heist with the bad guys being investigated by NYPD’s brash and daring detective, Jake Rivett.  What I liked about that book was that we followed the characters involved in the heist, and we got bits and dribbles about Det. Rivett. It was a fun read.

In his latest book, Never Go Alone, the teaser reads:

“A rash of elaborate cat burglaries of luxury buildings in Manhattan has the city panicked.

When a group of social media obsessed millennials — a loosely organized crew that call themselves “urban explorers”–are suspected in the heists, undercover NYPD detective Jake Rivett is assigned the case.

Rivett dives deep into the urban exploration scene in pursuit of the truth. But what, and who, he finds–deep in the sewers, up in the cranes above under-construction skyscrapers, and everywhere else in New York–will change not only Jake, but the city itself.

The second novel in the critically acclaimed Jake Rivett Series, Never Go Alone is a heist mystery and urban exploration thriller on the razor’s edge of modern culture. As Kirkus Reviews writes, “Written in a particularly visceral fashion, readers get to experience firsthand the pure adrenaline rush of this new breed of urban explorer and location hacker.”

Never Go Alone on Amazon.

Never Go Alone is a novel whose subject matter, urban exploring, was critically researched by Hatch and translated into a band of characters who are highly experienced climbers. Climbers who could scale any mountain or cliff face, but rather, they use their skills to crawl around the city, clambering up, over and through buildings and subways. All while they pull off heists that no one else can do.

Flash Crash book review

Flash Crash: A Jake Rivett Heist Thriller, is the debut novel for author Denison Hatch and to be honest, what a debut! Check out what I had to say about this new book that recently came out on the market!

The short description reads,

When a rogue programmer crashes the gold index, it seems Wall Street’s worst nightmare has come true. In truth, the crisis has just begun.

That description barely touches the surface of this multi-faceted tale of crime, family, trust and deception. The story is such a fun and great read that I forgot it was a “Jake Rivett” book, but rather, got caught up in the entire tale, with this Rivett character showing up here and there, in pursuit of our main characters.

When the story starts, we’re introduced to the main character, David, as he sneaks into a highly protected server room to install his malware program to do its damage. From that point forward, the story is a mix of present, past and the development of characters and relationships in both time streams.

FLASH CRASH on Amazon,
Read it today and see why I liked it so much

I normally like moving forward with story, but the flash backs were wonderful at filling in the history and motivations of our cast of various characters.

We have characters that range from high level Wall Street power players to the lowly pizza man. But regardless of who they are, they all play their roles eloquently throughout the story.
