Review:

"In The Taste of Fear, Jeremy Bates writes a gripping thriller wrapped inside the world of celebrities and terrorism...and makes it seem real. In the beginning, we are introduced to the Hollywood actress, Scarlett Cox and her billionaire husband, Salvatore Brazza: an estranged couple who try to reconcile by going on an African Safari. Scarlett's intuition tells her that her husband is keeping secrets from her, but she has no idea to what degree. She discovers, too late, that he has crossed the wrong people and that someone is threatening his life. What she doesn't know is that an assassin is in the Congo with them. Damien Fitzgerald, a killer for hire has never failed to accomplish his task. Although he is aging, he is as lethal as ever. We find out early just how lethal he is, what we don't find out until the climax is that he also has a heart. Once in the Congo, Scarlett and Salvatore end up in the wrong place at the wrong time and are abducted outside the American Embassy by an al-Qaeda terrorist cell. Along with two embassy workers and a very likable Aussie, 'Thunder', they are blindfolded and bound and taken into the jungle. The captives escape only to be captured again by Congo rebels. What plays out in the jungle is dramatic, frightening, realistic, and pure genius. ...Jeremy Bates kept me glued to the page with the nonstop action. What makes this novel a must read are the relationships between the characters. This is what drives the storyline and makes their adventure so harrowing. I found myself caring about them. In the scheme of things, isn't that what we are looking for in a book? Jeremy Bates has written a great book that would make a great Hollywood screenplay!"
