Poison Sky-A fast-paced international thriller from bestselling author Paul McNeive.
Airplanes are mysteriously falling from the sky and a deadly toxin is spreading through the streets of major cities. New York, London and Munich are filled with panic, paranoia and terror. And nobody knows who’s behind it all.
Somewhere, a twisted genius is masterminding a global crisis.
New York detective John Wyse and maverick cop Deke Hansen face the biggest challenge of their lives in a race to out-think the cunning and dangerous terrorists who are bringing the world to its knees using medieval tactics.
But the terrorists will stop at nothing to prevent Wyse unravelling their evil plot. As the bodies pile up, the threat suddenly gets very personal when the woman Wyse loves becomes a target.
With time running out, Wyse has to convince his bosses that a powerful psychopath is taking deadly revenge in the most bizarre and unpredictable way. Can he persuade the authorities to act, or will he have to take the law into his own hands?

This was great fun. A pretty great concept as I was reading so there’s that at least! I had lots of fun reading so this is something I would surely recommend to others!
A roller coaster ride Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 November 2021 After the great success of his previous thrilling novel, The Manhattan Project, this author has given us yet another wildly exciting tale. The book is well described on the Kindle site so I will merely give my honest opinion. The prose is sharp, short sentences and excellent description bring the reader racing along with the characters. Characters are well drawn, so if you are on the lookout for a truly thrill-packed book then this for you. My thanks to Netgalley, the publishers and author for an ARC of Poison Sky. I highly recommend
A non-stop adrenaline rush by New York JTTF Detective John Wyse to learn the identify of terrorists launching simultaneous attacks on the U.S. and a number of western European nations. This is a “can’t stop until I finish” thriller!
McNeive's novel is a nail biting thriller. The book takes place inside the NYC terrorist unit. The US and Europe are battling terrorists. Planes are crashing and the terrorists then take the struggle to a new level. Poison Sky is a well written novel worth a read.
Brilliantly executed, Poison Sky is an emotional page-turner that captivates you and holds on tight until the very end. The first I have ready by this author I cannot wait for more books. Excellent job!
I just couldn't put this book down. Between planes falling out of the sky and a deadly toxin being released in the major cities, it is one hell of a read. I must say though, just in case anyone feels this may be a heavy read.. it isn't. Paul McNeive has managed to write it so it is a bit lighter than you would expect. So, that's good at least! The characters he has created are all well developed and I thought the relationship between Wyse, Deke and Danielle was great, they all worked well together. The banter between them all did make me smile and the lighter tone can be attributed mainly to these three. The plot of this book is in one sense, terrifying because these things could easily become a reality. This is what makes it such a great read. The tension cranks up constantly and the short, snappy sentences help to drive the story forward. I ended up reading it so quickly so I could get the answers to the questions swirling in my head. In conclusion, this is an excellently written book that is action-packed with great characters and plenty of tension to keep you on your toes. Thanks to Netgalley
Now, here was a book I really enjoyed. I decided to drift away from the norm and found this an excellent read and also found another author whose books I will certainly seek out and read. Excellent plot and story line and it keeps you engrossed til the end. What more can you ask for? Recommend.
I received this ARC through "NetGalley" Read Now and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review. This is the 1st book that I have read by this author and plan to read his previous book in this series: Manhattan Project. This story begins with a Japanese elite who has plans for avenging his parent's death which came during the Hiroshima bombing. He plans to create havoc in the U.S. along with some of the U.S. Allies. His plan will bring support from a Muslim terrorist organization. This plan incorporates bioterrorism and results in several aircraft being targeted. The story relates the steps that the terror group is taking and what steps the Joint Terrorism Task Force is taking to stop these acts. The initial actions have left no clues for the JTTF to follow so they have to begin at square one. A new member, John Wyse has been added to the team and assist Derek Hansen, a longtime member that takes a different view how the search should begin. This new member previously was involved in an earlier case that he was able to resolve. AS time goes by, there is a different kind of terrorist attack that they need to shut down. Using various information from various parties they attempt to find the location that provided the means for implementing the attacks. Besides the terror attacks, the terrorist leader also had the job of killing the member that resolved the earlier attack. As a result, this individual targeted another member of the team to draw that person's attention so that he could kill him and complete his task. The description of the action that the terror group took and the methods that the JTTF members used to gather their information was well done. If you want a lot of action, then this is definitely a book that you want to read.
Wow!! How have I never heard of this author before now!! This was brilliant and such a page turner. Going to the Kindle store right now to buy another book from this author!!
If you like your books to be fast paced with action on every page, this is a perfect choice. With the topical theme of global crisis bringing some of the concepts very close to home. the author cleverly guides the reader through adventure and near mayhem, while all the while ensuring characterisation is not neglected. Really loved this one!
I join the other reviewers who really liked Paul McNeive's thriller Poison Sky. It's very well written with a plot that keeps the reader engaged. McNeive creates characters that I can identify with, including cops with personalities. The terror aspects of the novel are fascinating, complete with rats and fleas and a bad guy in a wheelchair. Poison Sky belongs on the best seller lists! Thanks NetGalley for the ARC.
