I just finished reading your book the delivery. 17 July 2014 at 11:50 ember and check out my book, a thriller exploring Jerusalem - Israeli faith from an insider perspective. Torn Blood takes you into an Israel you never knew- sanctioning no compromise or surrender in time of war.

In Mark Chisnell’s thriller The Defector, Martin Cormac is about find himself knee deep in a labyrinth of life threatening games that will ultimately determine which one of these people he REALLY is. Cormac is on the run, but not from what you would think. Though his job is kaput and his ego is scorned, these are just sidelines to what really has him scared.

Mark writes suspense and mystery thrillers, technical books on the art and science of racing sailboats, along with non-fiction books and journalism on travel, sport and technology for some of the world's leading magazines and newspapers, including Esquire and the Guardian. Mark began his writing with travel stories, while hitch-hiking around the world

Sam Blackett has moved on from her adventures in the Himalayas, and moved on from her relationship with Pete. Nail-biting action, a twisting plot and a fiesty heroine, Powder Burn is a page-turning thriller that is almost impossible to put down. The first in a new series, I'm not sure how Chisnell is going to top this one! Highly recommend! Minding Spot.

Self-interest or selflessness? This is the dilemma at the heart of The Defector - can Martin Cormac turn his back on his ruthless past as a currency trader, a player, and do the right thing? Not when he's looking for answers in a succession of sleazy dives... One night, Cormac gets caught trying to chat up the bar owner's girlfriend and soon needs rescuing. But his white knight is anything but - Janac's a big-time drug dealer with a psychotic urge to test people to the limit, and if possible... over it. And soon Cormac is running from more than his past, he's running from the most dangerous game he will ever play.

The prisoner's dilemma
n. a philosophical conundrum enacted through a game with two participants which gives an insight into the behaviour of the individual in society.

And the players? Martin Cormac, a man with a ruthless past in business and Janac, the man who seems to rescue him from the consequences of a poor choice in a bar in Thailand. But rescue isn't may not be the right word: Janac has plans for Cormac which could ultimately involve a choice between life and death. Can Cormac be selfless, or will his choices remain self-interested? What if Cormac's is not the only life at stake?

The action in this novel moves from Thailand to Sydney, and then to the Pacific Ocean and further north as Cormac tries to escape the consequences of his choices while Janac wants to play the game to a conclusion.

I enjoyed this novel: the story moves quickly and while Martin Cormac is not a particularly likeable hero he has his moments. Janac is a suitably awful villain who is committed only to `playing the game'. Much of the action takes place at sea, in circumstances that heighten the tension and the drama. Can Cormac `win' - despite the odds?

`There were only consequences left.'

Note: I was offered, and accepted, a copy of this book for review purposes. This novel was published in hard copy as `The Delivery'; it is now available in electronic format as `The Defector'

This is a fast-paced psychological thriller set between Thailand, Australia and the endless waters of the Pacific Ocean. The central character is no angel, and is fleeing from his past when he gets himself well and truly tied up with a powerful drug tsar with a penchant for mind games.

At the heart of the book is the concept of the "Prisoner's Dilemma", where two players in a game can choose between two moves, either to "cooperate" or to "defect". Each player gains when both cooperate, but if only one of them cooperates, the one who defects will gain more. If both defect, both lose, but not as much as the cooperator in the second scenario.

The "dilemma" sections of the book can get a bit complicated, and may cause you to stop and think it out, but the action resumes soon enough. The author also obviously knows his sailboats and yachts, and I got a little tangled in the nautical jargon whilst on my way to the final chapters.

The main section of the book motors along with a few choppy moments, but the ending makes up for this in a big way. I wish however that the Epilogue had revealed more of the aftermath, instead of the quick half-page wrap up.

Overall, a unique perspective on a drug-smuggling scenario with intriguing leading characters and a cast of walk-ons. It would make a great screenplay and movie.
