Never Go Alone book review Denison Hatch‘s latest book is titled Never Go Alone…  A Jake Rivett Thriller. In Hatch’s last Jake Rivett novel, his first, we had a compelling bank heist with the bad guys being investigated by NYPD’s brash and daring detective, Jake Rivett.  What I liked about that book was that we followed the characters involved in the heist, and we got bits and dribbles about Det. Rivett. It was a fun read.

In his latest book, Never Go Alone, the teaser reads:

“A rash of elaborate cat burglaries of luxury buildings in Manhattan has the city panicked.

When a group of social media obsessed millennials — a loosely organized crew that call themselves “urban explorers”–are suspected in the heists, undercover NYPD detective Jake Rivett is assigned the case.

Rivett dives deep into the urban exploration scene in pursuit of the truth. But what, and who, he finds–deep in the sewers, up in the cranes above under-construction skyscrapers, and everywhere else in New York–will change not only Jake, but the city itself.

The second novel in the critically acclaimed Jake Rivett Series, Never Go Alone is a heist mystery and urban exploration thriller on the razor’s edge of modern culture. As Kirkus Reviews writes, “Written in a particularly visceral fashion, readers get to experience firsthand the pure adrenaline rush of this new breed of urban explorer and location hacker.”

Never Go Alone on Amazon.

Never Go Alone is a novel whose subject matter, urban exploring, was critically researched by Hatch and translated into a band of characters who are highly experienced climbers. Climbers who could scale any mountain or cliff face, but rather, they use their skills to crawl around the city, clambering up, over and through buildings and subways. All while they pull off heists that no one else can do.

Legion TV Review

Legion is based on the Marvel Comic title by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. It’s the story of Scott Young (Dan Stevens), a troubled but very special young man. In his youth he was diagnosed as schizophrenic and finds himself in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years.

Now in his 20’s and finding himself under the gun of some investigative team from his present psych ward, he meets a new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller).

After meeting her, David faces the possibility that the voices he used to hear and the visions he had may actually be real.

That’s generally the description distributed to describe the show, but the pilot episode was something else altogether different.

The pilot episode feels more like a psychadelic head trip as we’re shown images from his youth, present time scenes, laced with more flashbacks of a recent time line.

THE VISIT Review

February 7, 2017

The Visit, from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, can be a very tense film experience, but not necessarily for the reasons that you think!

SAMSUNG Update Changed Settings

January 17, 2017

My wife and I own Samsung S6 smartphones. We’re not unhappy with them, but they do have their quirks. But nothing you can’t usually get past. Like for instance, the HORRIBLE Samsung spell checking mechanism. It changes words it does not need to or makes “fixes” that aren’t needed. Here are some classic Samsung spell […]

This is an open letter to Silhouette Eyewear and something consumers should be aware of. – I have a pair of Silhouette titanium rimless glasses.

A little over a year ago I bought some Kurgo Pet Door Guards for my truck and they worked wonderfully. You slip the plastic tabs down between the window and the guide foam, and presto, your dogs were no longer able to scratch up your vehicle door interior. Now if there’s one thing to be […]

ASSASSIN’S CREED Review

January 8, 2017

Assassin’s Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard & Jeremy Irons, is the film adaptation of the video game. It’s directed by Justin Kurzel. This film is yet another attempt at converting a video game franchise into a film franchise, and for the most part, doesn’t quite hit the mark, but that’s only a guess, because I […]

January 7, 2017

After having the new Batman premiere in Batman V Superman (BvS), I was surprised and found myself enjoying Ben Affleck‘s rendition of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Kudos. I also enjoyed the harsher side of Batman. Affleck has done a good enough job that he’s been tagged by DC/WB to put together the solo Batman film. He’s also […]
