When a plane makes an emergency landing in a small airfield in Iran, a seemingly mild mannered man finds himself in a dangerous situation in David Ricciardi’s thrilling Warning Light. If you are a fan of Jason Bourne, Mission Impossible, or any spy thrillers this read full of twists and turns is perfect for you.
Warning Light introduces readers to Zac Miller, who first appears to be a business man making a completely normal trip to Singapore that just happens to be interrupted by an emergency landing. His first introduction is done in a way that makes him seem like just another bystander, but as the story unfolds we are shown so much more about him. Ricciardi provides brief elements of flashback early on to reveal that Zac is actually part of a government organization and has taken over a mission to find information about possible warheads in Iran. With limited training he is out of his element when government officials decide that he is a threat. Once he is grabbed by them everything takes a massive turn. He is forced to try to escape and survive attacks not only from the Iranian government, but also from the agency that sent him into the field in the first place.
I was completely surprised by this read and was not expecting any of the twists and turns in Warning Light. Zac Miller as a character is written as someone who is desperately trying to survive and the decisions he makes don’t always work the way that he anticipates. I am typically not someone who reads government or spy themed thrillers, but I could not put this book down. The story moved so quickly and I was so intrigued to see what Zac would do next. This first novel does end with a set up for future stories and I would be very interested to see what happens to our main character next.
