Review: Iron House

Iron House
Iron House by John Hart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Iron House by John Hart is a fast-paced thriller with so many twists and turns, you will want to read the book from cover to cover. The story follows a man named Michael who just wants to live a simple life with his pregnant girlfriend, Elena. But that simple life is not possible since Michael is a recent former member of one of the biggest mobster gangs in New York City. And while the leader of the gang is laying in his death bed, his son is still trying to keep the mob family together. He won't let Michael, one of their best trained killers, out so easily.

To complicate matters, Michael is also trying to reconnect with his past, in particular his younger brother Julian. He hasn't seen Julian since the day they were about to adopted from an orphanage called Iron House. What happened there was the incident that tore them apart, but could also be the reason they may be able to reunite.

Fast-paced thrillers are always fun to read. A book with more than 400 pages will have a few slow spots, but once you make it past that, the story takes on a life of its own. It's written so that you get just enough of a taste of what you're in for, then the author turns around and brings you to a place where you didn't expect to go. Anyone that loves a good story will not want to put this one down.
