Roberto is a young left wing South American journalist who receives an ominous phone call leave the country in ten days or die He has every inten 📣 Roberto to the Dark Tower Came is available NOW In ten days Roberto You must leave the country Or else you will die 35 stars The book opens up with Roberto waking up in the middle of the night to receive a death threat on the phone and the narrative counts down each day before the unknown man's deadline Roberto to the Dark Tower Came is overall a powerful novel about a young journalist in an unnamed South American country fighting for the truth when journalists and other subversives are routinely murdered for doing their jobs The fact that someone wants to kill you for doing your job should make you realize how important that job is I am going to admit that I am a bit conflicted about this book It started incredibly strong and hooked me from the opening lines but the subseuent few days nine eight and seven dragged for me and I struggled to continue but my desire to see what happened kept me going and I am so glad I stuck with it I understand that it was important to Roberto's life to wrap things up and to reminisce about the past but I found the pacing to be a little slower than I would have liked Despite the considerable amount of time in the first 40% of the book dedicated to the people in his life barring Roberto Daniel and Lina the characters fell flat for me; however the connection that I felt for those three characters was deepDespite the slow beginning things really picked up around 40% in six days before the deadline For me this book was about Roberto's adventure to uncover and expose the truth it is less of a mysterythriller If I were to give this book a rating at 30% it would have been maybe 25 stars but it is easily a 4 star ending for me I think that many people will appreciate the buildup and character building but for me I wanted the action to come fasterThere are interesting parallels with terrorism and the fear of terrorism being used as a means of gaining control or excusing governmental acts of force that most certainly apply in the modern climate and the media is used to spread this message to tamper outrage I think that is why I felt a disconnect it felt too real but not actually discussing real events I don't generally hold fiction up to a reality standard but this almost read like nonfiction to me It is likely that Epperson didn't name the country on purpose so that it isn't rooted so much in modern historical events but I found it a bit distracting personally to have the narrator refer to my country and my city constantly Regions mentioned were in Colombia Ecuador and Peru all countries which I have traveled to which is probably why I was trying to pick it apart My best guess is that Roberto is based in Colombia and the strife depicted is a fictionalization of the FARC conflict cw animal abuse rape murder warOverall this is a good read and I think those interested in political adult fiction will enjoy this one Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher Meerkat Press for providing me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review Blog | Twitter

T of darkness in pursuit of his story Unknowingly Roberto is headed toward a confrontation with an evil darker than he could possibly have imagin I loved this book I devoured it in one big gulp It was suspenseful It was thoughtful It was timely But most of all I was surprised by how soulful it was for a thriller It's set in a Latin American country full of political turmoil and though written by an Arkansas author its sense of place is amazing You can practically feel the jungle all around you By the end of the book my heart was actually thumping in my chest as I feared for the fate of all involved Highly recommend
