The book, Final Act, is engaging from the beginning to the last sentence. Van Fleisher's Final Act is a masterpiece of suspense, romance, and crime scenes. This book showed various degrees of crimes common in society and made emphasis on those associated with political elections. For example, the book also discussed agents from foreign countries such as China, Russia, and Iran. These agents tried to influence the electioneering process in the United States of America.
One of the things I found very interesting about the book was the introduction of the characters and their physical descriptions. At every moment, the introduction of the characters was excellent and easily understood. These characters were introduced at the right time, with the right words, and appropriate physical description. Action scenes were also easy to understand. It had carefully chosen words for easy comprehension by the readers. The writer presented serious detective investigations and gentle romance in well-arranged and well-described scenes. This was done in the right proportion, and this made the book both fun and educating to read.
The book talked about the disadvantages that some scientific inventions could bring to humanity. For example, VT2 is a medical smart watch that has advanced capabilities by analyzing the wearer's blood, brain, fear level, and happiness level. It could also predict the precise death time of the wearer and tell them how long they have left to live. Even though this was an ingenious invention, it became a tool for committing crimes in the neighborhood. Being able to defend oneself in the face of brutal threats was another fascinating thing in the book. For example, Jennifer defended herself from a potential killer that came to her house with a Ruger LCR 357 gun. She used her mixed martial arts skills to defend herself, snatched the gun, and ultimately got him arrested by the police.
It was interesting to see Alek rediscover himself after losing his family to death. He was able to put himself together after the sorrow he experienced and be of good use to his friend, Vijay, by working with him. He did this by investing in and analyzing crime databases. The collective efforts by all security agencies and the technology company (VitalTech) to reduce crime were commendable. It is as practical as what is observed in the world.
To me, every scene and every chapter of the book was chronologically presented. Each followed the next with a great deal of cohesion. I could not pick anything I found unprofessional in the book. There was nothing to dislike about this book.
Final Act was well-written and well-edited. I did not encounter any errors in this book. The actions were greatly presented, and the suspense was of the right proportion. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. Since there were no negative aspects, I am awarding the book a perfect rating.
I recommend this book to those who are fans of scientific inventions. I also think this book is suitable for those who are lovers of detective stories with a touch of romance scenes. Political observers are also likely to be entertained by the book.
