    Reading any Donovan Nash must be the equivalent of hanging by a rope from a helicopter in flight. Nash never stops analyzing, moving, remembering his hidden past. Calling is thriller "non-stop" is not infrequent, but.with every novel by Philip Donlay in the Donovan Nash series, "non-Stop" is an exact and accurate description. In this fifth installment, a photographer who is an essential friend is kidnapped from a seething Guatemalan volcano, triggering flashbacks from the events of twenty-five years earlier that killed his fiancee. You are likely to hold your breath throughout.

    Wonderful Read This is my first review and feel compelled to write it. I have fifty or so books on my Kindle and keep coming back to Philip Donlay, I think this is number four that I’ve read of his. He’s a wonderful writer. Just when I think I’ve hit the peak of the excitement there’s more. Also, I’m the kind of person that can get emotional if something touches my heart. His books, that I’ve read, can be emotional at the end. I also really appreciate the fact that there is very little bad language, just a couple of words. Thank You Mr. Donlay.

    If you like adventure . . . this one is non-stop!All five of this author's books I've read have been non-stop action and adventure! This one is no exception! It's well written dialogue and scenes let you picture the exciting action and feel the building suspense, which does not end until you make it through to the answers on the last pages!!P.S. Upon finishing books 1 through 7, I can honestly tell you the quality and suspense and action are in every single book and I recommend them all!

    Donovan Nash is back!Things have calmed down since “Deadly Echoes“, but Nash finds himself in yet another suspenseful adventure. Stephanie VanGelder, one of Nash’s closest friends, is conducting research on a volcano in Guatemala. Within seconds, the team of scientists is attacked, and Stephanie is kidnapped for a ransom of $3 million dollars.Though Nash arrives at the volcano with fire in his eyes and a gun in hand, he begins to realize he will need the strategy and forethought of his friends and wife now. Strength and good aim alone are not going to be enough to save Stephanie.While the novel certainly has riveting suspense in the conflict between the kidnappers and Nash, even more suspenseful is the volcano that is soon to erupt. Ash, lava, earthquakes, toxic gas…natural disasters plague the protagonists with every move. They will find themselves not just worried about Stephanie’s life, but their own as well.Philip Donlay’s newest novel “Aftershock” brings back a wonderful character and pulls readers into a heated landscape that has us sweating from page one, and the thrilling suspense keeps us from ever cooling off. The plot is laced with twists and turns, including secrets about Nash’s own life and ghosts from his own past. The characters in Donlay’s novel are intricate and fascinating, a rare treat for a thriller novel.After finishing the explosive ending, readers will find themselves begging for the next Donovan Nash novel. Once again, Donlay has done a splendid job creating a thriller that all fans of the genre will avidly enjoy.Reviewer: Jonathan W. Thurston is a literary studies graduate student.

    If you are reading this, then chances are you’re already aware of Donovan Nash’s background. If not, you can find that elsewhere. This review applies as much to the Donovan Nash series as to Aftershock. I have read four of the five books in the series, have one on order, and am awaiting the release of the sixth, due March 1, 2016. Each book can be enjoyed separately; it isn’t necessary to read them in order, although that might add a little to following the ongoing troubles of Donavan’s life. But, just pick one to get started. These action-packed stories are like having an action-adventure movie in your hands. Author Philip Donlay’s descriptions are so vivid that if Donovan flies through volcanic ash, you almost breathe it. If cold air rushes into a torn fuselage, you feel it. As a helicopter hovers overhead, you hear the thwop-thwop-thwop of the rotors and feel the push of the downdraft. If a beautiful woman enters the room, or a former Navy SEAL bodyguard, you see them. You can do as I do and stretch out reading one of his books over a few evenings, or you can do as I am tempted to do and binge read one all night or over a weekend. Either way, with Donovan Nash you will get more bang for your buck than going to the movies, and you don’t have to pay high prices for popcorn and soda. Writers and students of writing know that one of the greatest concerns of a novelist is the sagging middle of a novel, which is any or all of the part of the book sandwiched between the first five eye-catching pages and the last five “oh wow” pages. Philip Donlay has his own solution to that problem: Just don’t have a sagging middle. Action begins on the first page and carries through his books, rich in detail, until the finish. For thrillers, I have been and remain a fan of author Brad Thor and would say this to him. Look over your shoulder, Philip Donlay is crowding your space.

    5 starsAnother jam packed action novel with Donovan Nash. Good exciting characters, plot and setting.Stephanie VanGelder was in Guatemala to take photos of a volcano that just erupted when her party was murdered and she was kidnapped. She thought of Donovan as a brother.Donovan Nash is a pilot that works for a company that lets scientists discover more about the planet. Donovan used to be Robert Huntington a billionaire that the world blames him for the death of his fiance after she was kidnapped and murdered. Robert faked his own death. Only six people know who he is really. He is determined not to lose another person close to him.Donovan gathers a group to go find Stephanie. He uses his plane with all the new technology and scientific tools to do what others can't do. I did not want to put the book down. It is fast paced thriller set in Guatemala. I have read all the Donovan Nash books and look forward to reading more of Philip Donlay's work in the future.I was given this ebook to read from Netgalley and Oceanview Publishing. Oceanview Publishing In return I agreed to give a honest review of Aftershock.

    An Astoundingly Breathtaking TaleAt the very first, I thought this might be just another typical adventure story, a saga of angst and drama...after only a few pages I was completely engulfed in the Donovan Nash world, feeling as if I were not only observing the events, but also living them. Too many words are floating through my mind as I attempt to express my enjoyment of this book. It is superbly written, detailed, has excellent character identification and development, and contains several related yet different plot lines, all of which are smoothly resolved by the end of the book. Kudos to Philip Donlay. If you enjoy almost nonstop excitement combined with a complex but fascinating story you'll enjoy this book. I certainly have.

    Donovan Nash always finds himself embroiled in deadly but very exciting scenarios. This time he is in Guatemala to pay the ransom or rescue the niece of his dearest friend, William who has been kidnapped presumably by guerrillas. Some of the books background are a little repetitious such as the death of Donovan's parents and the death of the woman he was going to marry but all part of setting the background of the whole series of books just in case a reader finds themselves in the middle of the series and is left wondering why Donovan does certain things. All in all, these books have been a tremendous read. High octane.

    There are lots of twists and turns in this action thriller. The author does some great wordcrafting in his descriptions of the situations. After having read the other books in this series, I've really gotten tired of hearing about the character Meredith.I think that this is the last book of this series because the author does a fine wrap up at the end. It is a good book, and I highly recommend it.

    I picked up this book in the new section of the library. It took me two days to read it and it gets very complicated with the plot. A short summary follows. A lady get kidnapped in Guatemala and a whole bunch of interconnected people go look for her. Everybody has secrets in this book. She finally did rescued, the volcano was not in the book until almost the end. This was okay but hard to follow.

    Outstanding! Thriller, crime buster, murder avenging, emotion filled, story. It reminded me of Nelson DeMille's style. There are many characters that Donlay ties together and quickly. The introduction of each was almost overwhelming, but he did an excellent job in weaving in their importance. I liked the way he, also, made a complete closure at the end. Per FTC rules, I received this book free via Goodreads.

    Philip Donlay has outdone his past books in this series.Best book I've read in a while. I loved how he brought Donavon's past into the future and finally gave him some peace, and the ability to love his family and friends. There was a great plot with interesting characters and a lot of action. Superb!

    What a wild ride! A friend loaned me this book and said he really enjoyed it. I have to admit, so did I. I've not read any Donlay, but I will read more. The characters were interesting (although quite numerous), the action was nearly non stop, and there were quite a few surprises. I can safely say thrill seekers will enjoy this book!

    Fast paced thrillerIf you enjoyed Category Five, this one is the same fast paced story. While I enjoyed the other Nash books, the others did not have the same action as this one. Some scenes I never saw coming and some heart-stopping moments, make this book worth the read.
