Quite frankly, this isn’t my normal genre that I read, but, My GRL by John W. Howell is a true thriller. The story line moves at a frenetic pace for the most part, and the action is hair-raising! The protagonist character, John Cannon, is a normal guy and he goes with the flow of the suspense quite well. The plot is deep and well laid out for the reader, maybe too deep, yet with the turn of each page, more suspense builds onto more suspense. I do think that if the areas of ‘too much information’ was tightened up, then this would be a five star read. This book is riveting in nature, yet humor is found within the confines of its pages. However, it was hard for me to grasp the entire consciousness. Thank you John.
