Although the storyline primarily centers on Stormy, the majority of the narrative is told in first person through Ross. Ross effectively removes Stormy from civilization as he and his team search for answers. I can’t reveal much of their journey, as it would be impossible to not provide spoilers. However, I can definitely say this is an action-packed thriller with several plot twists. Whoever seeks to kill Stormy is clever and has seemingly endless resources. While I predicted some of the outcomes, I was definitely surprised in the end.
I feel that this author has a very balanced approach to writing. Violence is successfully kept to a minimum without gory details. I also think that the author did a nice job in hinting at a romance rather than allowing a minor side story to overshadow the main plot. Finally, I feel that the author provides the right amount of struggle while resolving conflicts.
While it does not seem to be the intent of the author to draw overly detailed characters, I found the character development to be adequate for a quick read such as this. I felt I knew the main characters well enough for the story to be propelled along to its conclusion. As is appropriate to this genre, the author keeps up a rapid pace from start to finish.
Overall, the book appears to have been professionally edited and is without noticeable errors. I am glad to rate this a solid 4 out of 4 stars. Timely Death contains an intriguing plot intertwined with political and social issues that are relevant to the 21st century. An epilogue serves to tie up all loose ends satisfactorily.

I like a crime story with a little bit of romance. Great job on the review. Congratulations to Scooter Reaser on such an obviously well written book.
Thanks! I appreciate your comments. I also really liked the romance being a side issue!
