This Review:★★★★★

Average Rating: 5 ★★★★★

Mike's debut novel is a taut, action packed thriller that skilfully combines a gritty Cop story set in the seething mass of Manhattan with an Alien presence wreaking havoc amongst the young men of the City. Add in some distinctly Noir elements and you have a surefire winner.

Centred around the relentless and conflicted Detective Frank Ballaro, his long time friend on the force Captain Rodriguez, and their dogged refusal to let the case drop, Atmosphere is a thudding, intense story that drags you along to an ending of violence, conspiracy and blind courage, with numerous twists, traps and tests of Frank's psyche.

The strange device called Atmosphere is a unique and cunning device that works on both victim and reader as you find yourself drawn in to the tense drama, that is fleshed out with colourful characters drawn from the equally descriptive streets of New York City
