Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creepy and intense! Jeff Buick’s latest book, Delicate Chaos, is an action-packed thriller that will absorb you from the start, and is very difficult to put down. It has some surprising plot turns, great and well-defined characters, and the most evil bad guy to come along in fiction in quite some time. The plot revolves around Leona Hewitt, a young woman who seems to have it all. She is the owner of one of Washington’s most popular and trendy restaurants, she is the head of a charitable foundation that is doing great work in Africa – protecting elephants and helping to build schools and medical facilities for villagers in Kenya. And now, she has just been promoted to vice president of the bank she works at. Little does she know that the promotion is just the start of a chain of events that will leave her life, and the lives of those she cares most about, hanging by a thread at the mercy of a sadistic killer. Meanwhile, the only person who can help Leona is fighting for his own life, locked in a cell in Africa, being tortured by a corrupt official after doing charity work for Leona’s foundation, and Leona is powerless to help him. This is Buick’s fifth published novel and though I have enjoyed all of them, this is perhaps his most accomplished effort to date. It certainly involves some very creepy characters – including his most frightening character yet – along with some of his warmest, most compassionate characters. The situations are real and the resulting drama pulls you in and Buick keeps you there, page after page until the terrifying climax. If you have not yet read any of Buick’s books, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Delicate Chaos. Buick is a masterful storyteller, and I am sure this book will lead you to read his other books as well.
