    1 thought on “Strike Price”

    1. I almost gave this book 5 stars and would have given it 4.5 stars if it were an option. This story allows one to imagine oneself flitting around Europe hobnobbing with the rich and then returning to Tulsa, Oklahoma and driving the dusty back roads of small-town USA. The story involves Saudi oil-rich sheiks, native Cherokees, Chechan mercenaries, and hometown American characters who are all embroiled in a plot to hinder the sale of an oil refinery. There are a number of believable characters who [...]

    2. As a veteran of a long career in the international oil and gas sector, it was clear to me within the first couple of chapters of L.A. Starks’s masterful "Strike Price" that the author has deep and personal familiarity with the industry herself, both domestic and foreign. Too often, writers of fiction stoop to unconvincing caricature and cardboard insights when it comes to petroleum and the people who find it and it produce it.In a marvelous series of scenes set in Paris with a high-ranking Sau [...]

    3. L.A. Starks (13 Days: The Pythagoras Conspiracy) gets the smell and noise of the petroleum industry just right in her newest thriller Strike Price. Oil company executive Lynn Dayton faces off with the seven deadly sins: pride, lying tongues, hands that shed innocent blood, hearts that devise wicked plots, feet that run to ruin, deceitful witnesses, and those who sow discord. You'll find yourself turning the pages faster and faster as Lynn's hell-on-wheels race to end a chain of murders takes her [...]

    4. A great thriller with non-stop action. Don't get too attached to any particular character because there are deaths right, left, and center. There is quite a bit of technical jargon thrown about, but I found it to be pretty interesting.**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

    5. Once again too technical for me. I continually got lost when the author attempted to describe the refinery process. This book had a fabulous plot and the characters were once again written so well that I felt as though I knew them personally. The way in which this novel was written was precise and it flowed perfectly. It was however, predictable! You know pretty clearly who the trader of the team is. It was also a very slow book with little to no action in it. Although it really did not need muc [...]

    6. Wow! This was a wild ride. Many things I did not know about the oil industry and Native Americans in this book, I found very interesting for sure. It took me awhile to read this one, I had to back track a few times to catch up with the ever-changing story/plot which was very suspenceful and intriguing. I enjoyed reading Strike Price- very good book.

    7. Impressive thriller with a very interesting mix of characters. Plot seems plausible and realistic. Highly recommended.I got this book for free through Giveaways.

    8. THIS IS A VERY WELL WRITTEN STORY THAT HAS PLENTY OF TWISTS AND TURNS. IT WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING TO THE VERY END WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON
