This book gives new meaning to the phrases "hidden in plain sight" or "can't see the forest for the trees". Mullin did an amazing job with the twists and turns the plot takes and I for one would have relished a sequel.

Surface Tension by Mike Mullin is the first novel I have read by him, and boy, what a read. I received an ARC thru Net Galley for an honest review.
After witnessing an act of domestic terrorism while training in his bike for his next race.. Jake is found near death, with a serious head injury and unable to remember the plane crash,or the aftermath that landed him in the hospital.
A,terrorists leader's teen-aged daughter, Besty, is sent to kill Jake and eliminate him as a possible eye witness. When Jake's mom blames his head injury for his tales of attempted murder, and what might have happened with the plane, he has to rely on his girlfriend, Laurissa. As she helps him escape the killers and the law enforcement agents that are convinced that Jake himself, had a role in the crash things are going to heat up.
From the first page, Mike Mullin captures my attention, and until the very last page. Surface Tension is masterfully crafted, kept me up at night with me wanting to find out what was going to happen to Jake, and feeling bad for Jake. However, Jake is not the only one who's life is about to change. Just when you think you have everything figured out, Mike Mullin throw a few plot twists to shake things up.
Loved, loved Surface Tension, and thank you Mike Mullin for a fantastic read.

This is another of those that I start without knowing much about. Even now it seems not many have read, or at least reviewed, this title. It's such a fun read and I love with author's ability with words!
