One thought on “The Judas Game: A Shepherd Thriller (Shepherd #4) by Ethan Cross

  1. This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.

    At the start of this book i was really confused and lost as it seemed to jump all over the place but this was my first thriller/crime book so that might be the norm.

    Within a new state of the art prison where order is kept via computer algorithms and the inmates wear ankle and wrist bands which prevent them from being violent towards each other or themselves. To attempt such would lead to instant electric shock from the bands rendering the wearer immobile.

    But someone wants to shut the prison down. In order to do so they need to gain control of the prisons programming.
    Judas likes to play games and the whole book is his game. Lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. I didn’t guess who Judas was and was quite surprised to find out who it actually was.
    Well written but the constant sudden jumping annoyed me a bit and it didn’t feel like the story flowed as well as it should have. But as i said this was my first book of this genre.
    Ackerman really intrigued me and i would like to know more about him etc so i guess i will need to read books 1 – 3
