Indigo Persuasion by Joan Arlin Hibbs is a suspense mystery book. This is the kind that book gets you in the detective mode on any good day. The author produced an entertaining, yet a thought-provoking book that would make you question your safety and security. This is not the typical suspense story full of stereotypes. This is a book about a sophisticated form of crime. The sons of two wealthy oil CEOs are electronically held hostages. This brilliant crime leaves no evidence that a crime has been committed. The perpetrators leave no rooms for mistakes, and they believe they are smart enough to get away with the crime. Emotions are running high as the race to save the lives of their sons. Allow me to start from the beginning.
Marcus was a personal money manager, and Robert was a neurosurgery surgical assistant, were involved in the hostage scheme. They recruited Paul, a young man with good looks. Paul was a gamer who had an unfortunate past. Marcus rescued and enrolled him in his evil scheme. The sons of Gerald and Hank were victims of these schemes. Gerald and Hank had to offer an enormous sum of money every year to keep them alive. Together with help from INTERPOL, they took the matter into their own hands and went after the criminals who held their sons’ lives at ransom. Will they defeat the sharp-witted and ruthless men or will they become another unfortunate victim of an electronic hostage?
The story is a narrative told from the third-person point of view. The author certainly knows how to captivate her audience and keep us hooked right to the last page. The author managed to explore the innermost thought and fear of the family of hostage victims, though in this case, the fathers. This book is fast-paced and action-packed. I enjoyed the story so much I was yearning for a sequel.
There were many grammatical errors like unnecessary hyphens, even in the middle of a single word. For example, on page 67, Thursday was spelled “Thurs-day.” There were omitted words and unnecessary underlining. Furthermore, there were incorrectly used paragraphs and paragraphs in the middle of the sentence. There were also wrongly placed apostrophes.
I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. The writing style is direct and straightforward, and the book is properly organized. The story is entertaining, but the errors in the writing cannot be ignored. I recommend this book to those who like crime, mystery, and action books. I do not recommend this book to those who are uncomfortable with crime stories.
