Sleeper’s Run written by Henry Mosquera
War on Terror veteran, Eric Caine, is found wandering the streets of Miami with no memory of the car accident that left him there. Alone and suffering from PTSD, Eric is on a one-way road to self-destruction. Then a chance meeting at a bar begins a series of events that helps Eric start anew. When his new job relocates him to Venezuela–the land of his childhood–things, however, take an ominous turn as a catastrophic event threatens the stability of the country. Now Eric must escape an elite team of CIA assassins as he tries to uncover an international conspiracy in which nothing is what it seems.
About the Author
Henry Mosquera is a writer and artist born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. He attended the University of Miami, Florida, where he obtained a double major in Graphic Design and Film. He enjoys researching his novels, including gaining first-hand knowledge of some of his characters’ skills. Henry currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, dog and cat. Sleeper’s Run is his first novel.
In this action packed murder/mystery book, we learn bits and pieces of the main character named Eric Caine. A war on terror veteran who wakes up in a hospital not knowing what has happened to him for the past 8 days. Since becoming a veteran of war, Caine has had post traumatic stress disorder and it isn’t unusual for him to wake up with nightmares and cold sweats. When he wakes up in the hospital, he finds out that his car was found wrapped around a tree, yet he has no idea how this happened.
With its compelling plot, we follow Caine to Venezuela, where he finds a “killer” job, a possible love, and mystery on every page. It definitely had me on the edge of my seat and yearning to read more! To be honest, it sort of reminded me of the “Bourne” series from a few years ago ~ filled with spies, CIA, foreign governments, chase scenes and more.
There is a ton of action, and even some killing, but this book overcomes some of the more gruesome scenes with it’s compelling plot. It has such a great storyline that you were kept guessing at every turn what the main character, Eric Caine, was going to do next.
As Henry Mosquera’s first book, I believe he has started out his writing career with a great read. This incredible story of a super intelligent former military man who is trying to save himself by figuring out a big conspiracy. I am definitely looking forward to a possible sequel! The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the use of graphic language (please be aware of that).
