    TAKE THE MIC Releasing 10/1/19 The logline "Fictional stories of everyday resistance" that you see on the cover of this book, is not an understatement. You will read stories that make you go "yes!". You will read stories that will bring you to tears, poems that will leave you lost in your thoughts and emotions/5. Parade, Books We Love "The Take is a slick, elegant, and gripping spy thriller of the first order. With a brilliant heist, a twisting web of secrets and intrigue, and an adrenaline-fueled plot, Reich whisked me out of my world and into his from the explosive first pages. Simon Riske is my favorite kind of hero—flawed, dark, and utterly.

      The Take is a page turner from the onset. Freddie Jackson is the kind of antagonist who keeps the reader guessing. You never truly know what this insatiably unstable character that Martina Cole created will do next/5.   THE TAKER is not for the faint of heart, there is violence in the book but it is written skillfully and necessary for the plot and the characters but, overall it is a deliciously breathtaking read. I have seen her work compared to Anne Rice's and I must say I found myself remembering the days when I first discovered The Mayfair Witches and /5().
