In the days following the death of Al-Queda leader Osama Bin Laden, a Saudi-born diplomat is ruthlessly gunned down in New York; a bomb rips apart historic Downing Street in London; in Paris the French President is assassinated while spear-heading a NATO summit; and the flow of oil in the United States is being disrupted.

With society as we know it on the verge of collapse, former Scotland Yard cop Eddie Mallon’s personal connection provides the unique insight critical to figuring out what it all means.

While law enforcement agencies, the FBI, the CIA, and other high ranking people across the world struggle to understand what exactly is going on, Eddie must rely on nothing but his former international contacts, as well as the CIA special agent he has just met to find the terrorist behind the attacks and figure out what his ultimate goal actually is.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The Puzzle Master grabs your attention immediately with action packed scenes, leaving you both reeling and craving more. The novel is fast-paced, with action packed scenes that keep you guessing until the very end. There are so many different layers to the story which keep it twisting, and moving, and irresistible. From assassinations and outright bombings, to explosions, sabotage and dirty bombs, the action just keeps going.

With a very well written, and brilliantly executed story-line  The Puzzle Master is one of the best "new" novels I've read in a very long time. Even though at first glance, its 52 chapters seems a lot, they are short, and pass by before you know it. I was unable to put it down due to the fact that just as soon as you thought it was over, BAM, something else happened to keep you glued to the pages. This fact that made the surprise ending all the more enjoyable.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good suspense thriller (especially if you are a fan of Dan Brown as Mr.Boyle's work is reminiscent of Mr.Brown's).
