    After fluff and nonsense, I wanted a book that would be action-packed and keep me on the edge of my seat. This was the book for that. But the premise is horrifically flawed, and the heroine wouldn't have made it two pages, and... if you're looking for a minor romantic thread, you'll find nary a sign of it, here. This is a man's man writing, and he doesn't consider pandering to the larger reading demographic. A man in prison is to be executed in 72 hours.

But the premise is horrifically flawed, and the heroine wouldn't have made it two pages, and... if you're looking for a minor romantic thread, you'll find nary a sign of it, here. This is a man's man writing, and he doesn't consider pandering to the larger reading demographic. A man in prison is to be executed in 72 hours. He makes a deal: two minutes of air-time on television in exchange for the location of the two bodies of his victims. No gov't in their RIGHT MIND would allow it - or at least they would tape it and air it AFTER getting the location. But this writer thinks we'll believe that they let him go on TV... and announce to the world that he'll give $500 million to the first person who kills a particular woman and can prove it. Which makes her the target of every thug, drug addict, and mercenary in the free world. And of course he doesn't give up the bodies. And what does she do? She tells her children to meet her AT HOME!!! How. STUPID. Can you BE?!?!?!??! And all the way through the book, she continues this pattern: "I've been told not to leave the safe room, and there are killers in the tunnels, but oh! Do I hear a phone ringing on the other side of the compound? Let me just navigate four tunnels to go answer that..." It was irritating that Moreton thinks so little of his female characters. Of course Jean Claude VanDamme takes a weekend off his surfing/brooding to come out of retirement and play bodyguard to the woman and her children, at the request of the boss who fired him. (Makes perfect sense, doesn't it?) Insert gore (mists of pink brain matter, etc) and vast amounts of shooting/running... Until the man in prison makes ANOTHER deal. I'll tell you where the bodies are if you let me out to go with you. And they're dumb enough to buy it AGAIN!?!? C'mon... but Moreton does it. If you can believe that crap. And the book is riddled with spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes. So... this won't be making any top ten lists, anytime soon.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my free Kindle version of "72 Hours" and recommend it to anybody interested in reading a wonderful thriller. Mr. Moreton does an excellent job in developing hype and drawing the reader and his characters into what may be an impossible situations - those appearing inescapable.

Mr. Moreton does an excellent job in developing hype and drawing the reader and his characters into what may be an impossible situations - those appearing inescapable. I turned the page quickly, hoping to learn how the characters get out of this fine mess. Instead, the author created a new chapter and moved to a different thread within the story. The break left me anxious, yearning for the answer. Mr. Moreton does the same thing again and again while moving the reader through these sub-elements. "72 Hours" is one of those stories that keep readers up late in the night because they can't put it down. The author also drops subtle hints along the way, warning readers that "all is not what is seems to be". There are many twists and turns during "72 Hours" and the author does a wonderful job in bringing all the threads together at the end of his story. Definitely a must read for Lee Child followers...Archer and Reacher could be one in the same. I'd also like to address many of the naysayers who are giving this book a bum rap. Folks, this is a fiction story, and whether something seems unrealistic or not shouldn't matter to the reader. The writer is taking us on a trip through his imagination and putting it all in a story for our reading pleasure - it is what it is. What if the author had Archer jump into the future in order to learn how to defeat his enemy - would you further chastise his story because time travel is impossible? Personally, I thought the underground complex was an excellent component and thought it was pretty cool - leaving them indestructible! Don't get me wrong, there are typos throughout the story, but not enough to make me stop reading it. However, I did take them into consideration for this review - costing "72 Hours" one star. Otherwise, it was a great story and kept me wanting to read more. Nice job! John Podlaski, author Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel

    The premise of this book is chilling. A death row inmate calls a press conference, and instead of telling where the bodies of his victims are buried, he places a $500 million bounty on the head of his sister-in-law, Lindsey. The chaos that ensues as random people try to hunt her down to kill her and her two children within the 72 hours given as the deadline by the psycho in prison makes for a very interesting read.

There are high powered, projectile firing, ammo hungry, weapons. There are blades. There are cars that drive over unpaved terrain. There are villains. There are heroes. And there is a damsel in distress. And in the end, the guy gets the girl. I first heard about this book from the blog "Pixel of Ink", which marked it as a free Kindle book to download. Since my brother recently got me a Samsung Galaxy Player, and thus I had a Kindle-reading-device, I grabbed the book and was quickly engrossed. The premise of the story is that a bad boy of action is put on the scene to protect a woman (and her children) that was singled out to be an assassination target by a rich megalomaniac. Included in this story are a paparazzi guy who seems technically sophisticated as well as an asshole, and a shock-jock a la Howard Stern who is just downright inhuman. I don't think that anyone with any sort of conscience or sense of humanity would act as he did, nor would anyone who produced his show continue to allow the show to remain on the air. Throw in to that the world's. dumbest. female. ever. You know how when you are at a scary movie and the lady victim with the sky-high heels starts running upstairs into a dead end room to escape the guy right behind her with a knife? You know how someone always screams: "Don't go up the stairs!" Well, this woman is worse and you want to do worse than scream at her. She was, at one point, in the safest place imaginable where she would be guaranteed not to be killed, hurt, maimed, or destroyed. Her children were with her. So what does she do? Well, I'll leave it to you to find that one out. And then on a separate occasion when she is in danger and she receives a command to move from her current location, a command issued by someone she already knew to be her protector, what does she do? Again, I'll leave it to you to find out. I mean, all she has to do is stay alive for 72 hours and despite the protections of a team of armed ex-special forces bodyguards, a secure bunker, and a panic room, she, herself, is her greatest danger. Oh, and she has the brattiest children, ever, too. They, too, are in extreme mortal danger and peril. Bullets are literally whizzing past their heads, and so they decide that it is the perfect moment to ignore the fact that they have been assigned to a secure bunker and go exploring. In the middle of a firefight. Yep. Because one of them thought he heard a phone ringing. I just can't. I mean. Does the author think that he's actually writing the real reactions that real people would have to these sorts of situations? If grenades were exploding at the end of the hallway and a 16 year old boy heard someone else's cell phone ringing in a location that would require him to walk down said grenaded hall, he wouldn't do it. Not for reasons of the grenade, and certainly not to answer SOMEONE ELSE'S CELL PHONE! Kids may be oblivious to danger, but they aren't THAT OBLIVIOUS. But after meeting Momma, you realize that Boyo comes by this, naturally. Okay, rant over. But that is the reason I marked this to only two stars. Action was great. It was exciting. It was fantastic. It was a thriller. But dear lord, the victims should have been, on multiple occasions, cold cocked and bound for their own good and the fact that the hero didn't do this but instead falls in love with the world's dumbest woman ever just absolutely blows my mind. Oh, and what does "to glass" (used as a verb) mean? Because the characters do an awful lot of "glassing" the horizon, "glassing" the peaks, etc. I assume it is some sort of visual reconnaissance, but it is a term I've never heard before.

It was akin to watching a car crash.. you just can't make yourself stop despite the flaws.. Overall, it was okay. It held my interest long enough to finish it and it was free. Read only if you have absolutely nothing else to read.

    Action packed adventure This story occurs on the west coast and since filled with action from the first paragraph. The characters are well developed and they are enter woven in three plot each has their own role . That's well developed. Archer is the next hero of the action pa cked genre. I look forward to reading his next thriller. I hope that rhe FBI agent Kline reappears in some up coming stories he just brought something to the plot. Maybe Ms Hammonds will also rezpear.

    Great Idea, poor execution. (I seem to be saying that a lot in my reviews, not sure if that's good or bad!?) Basic Premise: Death row inmate promises personal fortune of $500 million to whoever kills his sister-in-law before he is executed in 72 hours. Ryan Archer is brought in by the FBI to keep her safe until time is up. This is the basic 'Good Vigilante' solving all ills but really poorly done, the bench marks for this genre are Lee Child's 'Jack Reacher' and David Baldacci's 'John Puller'.

This is the basic 'Good Vigilante' solving all ills but really poorly done, the bench marks for this genre are Lee Child's 'Jack Reacher' and David Baldacci's 'John Puller'. The character and detail writing are really poor and the author seems to use 'Hollywood' as the basis of reality and fact. (Cars just explode when crashed, grenades have the explosive power of nuclear weapons and the hero can get grenades to explode in mid-air with pinpoint precision) It is really hard to immerse yourself in the story when you're shaking your head in disbelief at every line. Spoiler Nitpicking :-) (view spoiler)[ Lindsay finds out that there is a bounty on her head and that a local radio DJ has given out her home address, so what does she do ............ Picks up her kids and heads home!!! You can forgive one or two errors of judgement but there turns out to be a catalog of them. Lindsay is taken to an underground bunker and shown to a safe room as 10 heavily armed mercenaries are attacking, instead of pressing the button to shut it and stay safe with her kids until it is over, she keeps it open and goes stumbling around to answer a phone!! Mercenaries are able to see reflections off binoculars at night! Mercenaries come as 10 divide into pairs but decide to assault in these pairs instead of regrouping, thus enabling them to be picked off bit by bit. Lead Mercenary apparently has a mobile phone on him during the assault without the ringer silenced. Archer is able to hide in a 7ft wide and 2ft deep bit of water as bad guy walks through it! After killing 8 of 10 bad guys they decide to leave to go to trap laid by an assassin. Without trying to find the last two they drive up to the gates park up in plain sight while opening them and closing them etc... Surprise surprise the two bad guys are there to shoot them. Archer then uses his nightvision scope to take one of the bad guys out. WHAT! NIGHTVISION SCOPE!!!! where the hell was that for the past 4 hours during the night assault by 10 bad guys!!? that would of been handy!! Archer's master plan to get him out of the assassin's trap (who is a sniper btw) is to drive out following the assassin's instructions and get both him and Lindsay to stand in plain sight. hmm never occurred to him that the assassin might fancy a potshot!!?

    Very enjoyable! I have never read Mr. Moreton before, but in my search for a good mystery/thriller, I came across "72 hours." The book laid out the premise of the story in the opening chapters, but the thrill was the weaving of the story to the end of the book. It was hard to put the book down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I will read more of the Ryan Archer stories! Very enjoyable!

    72 If you enjoy this genre you will love this book. It is a compelling page turner that you will be unable to put down. It has multiple complex plot twists, well defined characters, lots of suspense and action, and a satisfying conclusion. This book is high octane throughout. I highly recommend it and offer thanks to this author for a work well done.

The good points include an interesting concept, gripping storytelling, action packed sequences and not too many dull moments. My favorite part was the beginning which was unpredictable and instantly gripping. I also loved the action sequences which were many and not far in between. The details were described exceptionally well, giving you a feel of being right there, watching it all unfold from a front row seat. The bad points, though not too many, do require a brief mention. The first, mildly bothering drawback, was the typos. There were errors that, for some people, may hinder the flow. And given how quick the story moves, that can be a turn off. The second, and more glaring drawback, is the occasional lack of detailed character development. The protagonist seems altogether too 'normal'. The blurb gives the impression of an experienced, never going wrong kind of protagonist who, in comparison, comes off as a little more normal than expected. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Heroes do not necessarily have to be impossible to fool, cheat or temporarily overcome. That would be unbelievable and maybe even boring because of the lack of conflict. But the knight in shining armor of 72 Hours, in my opinion, seemed too 'normal' for someone who comes from his background. Not that that makes him less likeable. Maybe the small character faults are more glaring because of how well the other characters are developed, especially the antagonist, who really makes readers loathe him. The end is a little rushed and I, personally, would have liked some more details. But I can walk away from this book saying that it didn't leave me with a feeling of hanging in the middle. The loose ends are all neatly tied up, even though it may be more hurried than some would like. Definitely a book that I would recommend for all action, thriller and crime readers.

Before settling down to a slower pace of life, Archer served in the army and then worked for the FBI. He planned to put his previous life of action and danger behind but a voice from his past drags him back in. Archer agrees to protect Lindsay Hammond for 72 hours as threats close in against her from all sides. 72 Hours is a suspenseful thriller from William Casey Moreton. It’s a quick read as there’s plenty of action and danger keeping the plot whizzing on but the character of Ryan Archer is still well developed. Archer’s meeting with Lindsay Hammond and agreeing to protect her from the rather dramatic dangers that she is facing makes for a gripping start to the story and promises intrigue ahead. Perhaps some of the situations that the two find themselves in (and definitely some of Lindsay Hammond’s behaviour) are verging on the implausible but then 72 Hours is an action thriller so some over-the-top antics are to be expected. While the story is very good, it has to be said that 72 Hours could have done with some further proofreading. There were quite a few typos, especially in the middle of the book, that proved quite distracting. It’s not enough to spoil the book of course but the reading experience would have been far better without them. William Casey Moreton is definitely good at crafting compelling stories and building interesting characters and so a bit more polish on the final production of his books would certainly be worthwhile. 72 Hours is an exciting, engrossing read that should please thriller fans and those who enjoy action films. Ryan Archer is a believable hero who will hopefully feature in other books in the future. All in all, 72 Hours is a great way to while away a few hours

    Several complaints about this book. (view spoiler)[ Lindsay was an idiot. I hated the budding romance. No way they wouldn't have just killed off Dunbar. No, let him sit there for 72 hours. They did not explain where the bodies were found or how they found Dunbar which were just copouts. Chu would have killed Lindsay as soon as she saw her if she wasn't an idiot.

    Absolutely fantastic! Absolutely fantastic! This is a new author to me and I did not expect such an awesome read! This book needs to be made into a movie. Archer is an awesome character. And the storyline was nothing short of amazing! Then the ending could not have been any more perfect...sort of. :-) William Moreton reminds me of Lee Child and his Reacher books. I will be reading anything by Mr. Moreton that I can get my hands on! This is a must read!!!!

    At first I wasn't for sure I was gonna like it after I found out that it was over 900. Didn't think it was gonna hold my interest, but I was wrong. What a very entertaining thriller. It was well worth alll 900 pages. I found myself reading into the night so I could get to the ending. Will be looking for other titles by Mr. Moreton to read.

    One of the best stories I have read in a very long time. I started this not knowing what to expect. I have never heard of the author. Never read any reviews of his books. I was carried into the story immediately. You are turning pages as fast as you can to see what is going to happen next. Good job Mr. Moreton. I will be on the lookout for more Ryan Archer stories.

    This book is an action-packed thrill ride from page one. I generally dread seeing whole pages of narrative, but Moreton's descriptions are so real and engrossing, it plays like a movie in your head. I will definitely read his other books.

    Non stop action. Not quite as polished as a Rollins or Morrison with a few repetitious words but that didn't detract from the action one bit. I'll be adding another W.C. Moreton book to my To Read shelf right away. Non stop action. Not quite as polished as a Rollins or Morrison with a few repetitious words but that didn't detract from the action one bit.

    For some reason, this book reminded me of the series '24'. Fast paced, and yes, it's FICTION so there are some unrealistic scenarios. I gave it 3 stars instead of 4 because it went on too long - about 75% of the way through i started skipping pages, but the end tied it up. For some reason, this book reminded me of the series '24'.

    This book had me hooked from the very beginning. I really enjoyed the story and the non-stop action. I will say that the editing could have been better; there were too many typos and missing words. But overall, an excellent book.
