I got Road To Mercy A Shannon Ames Thriller by T J Breaton from Book Sirens for a fair and honest review.

The Reason i decided to read this book was the intriguing book cover as well as the  Synopsis.


A brutal abduction. Two scared kids. One desperate fugitive.

Struggling with the guilt for shooting and killing a man during her freshman case, Special Agent Shannon Ames is back in at the deep end when former federal prosecutor Lucy Donato goes missing.

The case takes a surprising turn when Lucy’s bookish husband Bob is seen on a traffic  camera fleeing the state with his two small children. Has he done something to his wife? Is he a danger to the kids?

There’s definitely something going on with Bob, because it soon becomes clear he isn’t stopping for anyone. He’s smart, ruthless, and  steamrolls over anyone who gets in his way.

Desperate to protect the kids, Shannon pursues Bob cross-country, following a trail of stolen cars, brutal bar fights, and dangerous drug dealers. But something isn’t sitting right with her.

Why would a meek office worker suddenly blaze a trail of chaos across several states? What does he want? Where is he going?

The answer to those questions is truly shocking and puts Shannon at the heart of a case she’ll never forget


Road to Mercy is a face-paced chase, based mystery thriller that is well written , with the style of the writing drawing the reader in to the story, as the tension is built up throughout the book

The way that the major characters were written was enough to make them fledged out enough to allow the story to flow which is all I require from my thrillers.

To me a weakness of the book  is the ending, as it felt similar to one of those hour long tv shows, when, the last 10% only, seems to be there just to make the show the correct length, this book felt the same way. Although this distracted from the story the novel was still an enjoyable read.  

Road to Mercy is the second book in the Shanen Ames series, however, you do not need to read the first book of the series (which I have not read)  to enjoy this one.

Buy from amazon


I would recommend this book to people who love a good mystery thriller, which is well-past, with risik and jeopardy throughout the book then I would recommend  T J Breaton’s Road To Mercy.
