"Critique: A compelling read that is impressively crafted by author Philip Donlay, Aftershock is a very highly recommended read and continues the exploits and adventures of Donovan Nash. Solid entertainment...Also very highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections are Philip Donlay's previous Donovan Nash novels: Deadly Echoes (9781608091096), Zero Separation (9781608090686), Code Black, and Category Five."  The Midwest Book Review

"The action races to a shoot-out on the shores of Lake Atitlán and a desperate flight through a volcanic eruption as Mt. Atitlán rips itself apart. Donlay keeps things moving too fast for readers to get bored..." â€â€Ã‚ Publishers Weekly

"The action ping-pongs back and forth as Nash's rescue and McKenna's investigation proceed, until events collide as the volcano's eruption threatens 'them all. Donlay's knowledge of flying and Guatemala add authenticity to the story, and he keeps the pace building to a powerful and memorable climax." â€â€Ã‚ Suspense Magazine

"Donovan Nash is backâ€â€and is he ever. In Aftershock, the latest thriller from Philip Donlay, Donovan must travel to the jungles of Guatemala to save a woman from his past who has been kidnapped by the vicious killer known as The Serpent. Tense action, crisp dialog, and cool high-tech toys drive the story. Oh, and there's even an erupting volcano. A great read." â€â€Ã‚ D. P. Lyle, award-winning author

"Donlay continues to deliver high-quality, character-driven thrillers with this latest in his Donovan Nash series. One of Nash's closest friends, Stephanie VanGelder, is kidnapped in Guatemala. A straightforward rescue goes horribly wrong, leaving Nash with the problem of coming up with an alternate plan. Estranged from his wife and daughter, Nash has another problem: convince his immediate family to let him back into their lives. This personal angle gives the story an emotional core, and a rumbling volcano sets the time clock on suspense and leads to a frantic turning of pages. Donlay is on the verge of breaking outâ€â€and deservedly so. Readers who pick this fine thriller up will eagerly seek out the previous titles and wait impatiently for the next Nash adventure." â€â€Ã‚ Booklist
