Set in the Greek Islands and Washington DC, “Cyclops Conspiracy” by William McGinnis is a taut, deftly written, and thoroughly entertaining thriller that delivers twists and surprises that will keep the reader totally engaged and compulsively turning pages from cover to cover. –Midwest Book Review
Winner of the Literary Titan Book Award: Literary Titan Review:
Writer William McGinnis says that Adam Weldon is his favorite character, and indeed he does feature in a number of McGinnis’s action tales. Weldon is a MacGyver type – an ex-Navy SEAL who can turn any tricky situation to his advantage. Unlike MacGyver, however, he does so with a gun in one hand and in the other, an encyclopedic knowledge of how to kill someone bare-handed, Jack Reacher style.
In Cyclops Conspiracy, Weldon teams up with his girlfriend, Tripnee, an FBI sharpshooter, and an alluring drone expert called Sophia. Together, they set sail to prevent World War III.
The action takes them around the Greek Islands and, eventually, all the way to the White House as they attempt to foil the plans of Islamic extremists set on jihad. McGinnis clearly knows his way around a yacht,….. McGinnis draws on the Cyclops / Greek mythology connection as well.
Throughout the book, the people are beautiful and the bad guys are very bad; the men are tough and resourceful, the women are … strong female protagonists. While the characters were engaging and perfect vehicles to deliver entertaining action scenes, I look forward to seeing them developed further in future novels as they’re interesting characters, but I feel we’re only scratching the surface.
For fans of action-adventure novels there is plenty of violence and threat and lots of shooting with heads disappearing into red mists and a clever twist at the end. Cyclops Conspiracy is a thrilling action novel that will appeal to fans looking for a straightforward story with relentless action. —Thomas Anderson, Literary Titan
