I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.

The Review

A shocking yet fun genre mashup, author Mike Rickett delivers a stellar story and wonderful cast of characters that fans won’t soon forget. What begins as a government cover-up soon turns into a shocking mystery of death, visions, and a race against time as shadowy figures emerge and put two women brought together seemingly by fate into the crosshairs of a dangerous enemy.

In a larger than life plot lie this, the author does a fantastic job of keeping the story as grounded as possible with memorable characters who keep the reader engaged. The quick friendship and bond between the protagonists in particular keep the reader invested as the story progresses.

The Verdict

A one of a kind story that is filled with powerful drama, suspense and heart-pounding thrills, author Mike Rickett’s “The Poseidon Files” is a must-read thriller that never slows down. Entertaining and action-packed, the story’s final arc is an edge of your seat scene that will keep readers’ attention throughout its entirety. Be sure to grab your copy today!

Fast pace action combined with the supernatural. Kept me guessing as to where missing files were until the frightening and supernatural ending. The mainly Liverpool setting lends to the interest and mystery.

I truly enjoyed this story. It was engaging, thrilling and full of great storylines. Mike Rickett did a great job of mixing technology, mystery, suspense, a little sci-fi and solid characters.
All in all, a great first novel!

I loved this book. It was really well written, focussing on character development, not just the superficial events drive stuff that you often get in this genre. Saying that, there was a supernatural thread running through the book that gave it a special twist. The settings in Llanberis and Liverpool really brough the book to life too.

A great book, kept me intrigued all the way through. I believe there are times in this world where unexplainable events occur, When they do, you know inside that this is right!! Looks like Mike knows it too! Looking forward to more Naomi Adventures

I am a cereer journalist having worked for the London Dail Mail, Reuters and latterly the Liverpool Daily Post on Merseyside as well as the journalists’ leader in the region. I have experience as a crime reporter, feature writer, business editor and latterly, a senior sub-editor. My qualifications include a BA (Hons) English, from the University of Liverpool; a BA (Hons) Fine Art and an MA in Creative Practice both from Liverpool Hope University. I now divide my time between art and writing. I will shortly be publishing my first full-length novel, The Poseidon Files and as a taster I have written a short story which features the same central female character in which she talks about her world and her life. It is, however, essentially a ghost story.
