#BookReview: Departure (Seth Walker #3) by @josephreidbooks

Synopsis: The Amazon Charts bestselling series continues as air marshal Seth Walker hunts a potential terrorist who could hold the key to the darkest chapter of his own past.

When an electrical engineer from one of America’s premier tech companies disappears inside the San Francisco International Airport before an overseas flight, air marshal Seth Walker is called in to investigate. With the clock ticking down and questions multiplying at every turn, Walker can’t afford to fail: the lives of all two hundred thousand passengers inside SFO may hang in the balance.

As he races through crowded concourses, desperately searching for clues, Walker can sense this is no routine missing-persons case. But as he digs ever deeper into the young man’s background, the tangle of contradictions he finds is confounding. Is the engineer the victim of a crime…or the perpetrator of one?

As the case forces Walker to confront his own demons and the reason he fled his former life in industry, finding this man may mean exposing his own darkest secret.


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: This was a great story.  I haven't read the first two books but that didn't stop me from enjoying this one. I do think that if I would have read the first two books that I would have gotten the connections via the character but other than that this one was great. This was gripping and twisty and great.  I liked the characters enough that I totally am going to go back and read the first two books.  Don't miss out on this one. 


“Reid’s explosive third Seth Walker novel (after 2019’s False Horizon)…maintains a frenzied pace throughout…Background about Walker’s previous career in high tech and what drove him away from the industry will please fans of the appealing Walker, who’s never short on opinion or emotion…” Publishers Weekly
“Reid’s third Walker yarn is a by-the-minute thriller, with roller-coaster action and authentic airport atmosphere.” Kirkus Reviews
“Joseph Reid delivers a Mach 3, edge-of-your-seat thriller with Departure. Strap in tight for a delightfully turbulent ride—Reid grabs you on the first page and doesn’t let go.” —Steve Konkoly, Wall Street Journalbestselling author of the Ryan Decker series
Departure is the one-hundred-yard dash in book form. Joseph Reid fires the starter’s pistol on page one, sending Seth Walker and the reader on a delirious, lung-busting race to solve a mystery that ties together in a satisfying ending loaded with heart.” —Matthew FitzSimmons, Wall Street Journal bestselling author
“I fell for Seth Walker in Takeoff, the first of the series, and I think I love him more in Departure. What I love most is that Seth’s brawn, of which there is much to appreciate, is matched by his brain—imagine Clancy’s Jack Ryan combined with a young Steve Jobs. The combination makes Departure another hold-on-to-your-seat, don’t-even-try-to-put-it-down thriller. If you haven’t tried Seth Walker, you’re missing out.” —Danielle Girard, USA Today bestselling author
Departure is sky-high entertainment. With barrel-roll plotting, an eye for detail, and a cast of characters flashing both brains and brawn, Joseph Reid’s latest Seth Walker adventure is one hell of a flight. Get on board now!” —J. Todd Scott, author of the Texas Border series
Departure is a seriously thrilling ride! This action-packed techno-thriller starts with a bang and keeps the momentum going to the final page. Seth Walker is a fantastic hero, and Reid’s deft use of dual timelines ratchets up the tension all the way to the explosive conclusion.” —Ellison Cooper, author of Buried
