In Radioactive by Lloyd Vancil, Detective Sergeant Mitchell Foster is running away from his past. Things are not looking up for him when the LAPD and law enforcement discover that a group of terrorists has ransacked a nuclear storage facility. Knee deep in the investigation of a terrorist plot to devastate his country, no one is safe, not even his family and neither is he. When his involvement leads to a devastating loss in his personal life, he is burning with revenge. The guilt is clawing his insides, but the threat is still there and possibly is greater than ever.
Mitchell Foster has two options: let the guilt consume him and let the terrorists wreck havoc on the country he loves, or get up, let go of the past and stop the terrorists before anyone else is hurt. What will he do when his options are limited and his emotions are bringing him down? Can he stop the terrorists before they destroy everything that gets in their way?
Yes, Radioactive is a thriller, but it is a thriller like no other. Since 9/11, many writers have tried to write about terrorists, but very few have succeeded in writing a good story on the topic. Lloyd Vancil has achieved what many of his peers have not been able to do. The storyline is good and engaging, the conflict was amazing, and the complexity of the plot was refreshing. It is not your straightforward thriller; there are dips and valleys that you will have to navigate to get to the end. And it will be worth it. A well-paced, well-timed thriller. Thumbs up!

The story is pack with trill. Its fast moving. Once I started reading it, I had a hard time keeping the book down. It took me into a very different world. Whats amazing is the how realistic the pot was, given issues in modern times of today.

I ended up tacking this book on a vacation/family visit. Not the best time for this book. I had too many interruptions and days that I just did not get to read. I should have taken less than a week to finish this. Instead it took me 15 days. It is an intensely detailed book with a bountiful number of characters and plenty of action, too. Because of my long breaks it sometimes took me a few minutes to refresh my mind to "where am I?", and "who's this guy?". By the way there is a compendium of characters at the end of the book. That would have been extremely helpful if I had noticed it earlier.
The plausibility is terrifyingly realistic!
