So what did I think . . . The Covert Element will have you on the edge of your seat from the beginning. Betcher does a great job of weaving an intriguing and thrilling story about current events or issues and making the story seem believable without being 'Hollywood'.
So, how do I rate . . . The Cover Element as many stars as allowed. I really enjoyed it and all the "Beck" stories. And, I am waiting for the next one. And, well I just can't wait for a 'Beck' movie.
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. I would recommend it actually for any age group. With parental guidance I think even a young adult would enjoy any of Betcher's work.
In case your wonderin' . . . don't worry if you haven't read any of the other Becker stories but I would recommend all 3 books. Each story stands alone and even if you start with #3 you'll still enjoy it!
