Excellent book.This book has everything I like to read about, thrills, mystery, biotechnology and politics Reminded me my old time favorite Flowers for Algernon Read everything this author wrote and keep them safely and dust free in the clouds Every book has parts of his life experiences in his characters, but I had a hard time to connect with the Kyle Achilles He experienced and learned lots of stuff from his backpacking travels, climbs walls, speaks Russian Loved his family, now he has to find [...]

I love to search out new authors that are as good an inspiring as my favourites and I just found one To compare some of my favourite authors include James Rollins, Lee Child, Brad Thor, Vince Flynne, Ben Coes, Michael D O Brien to name a few Tim Tigner is now also one of them This story was great had action, science, geo political topics and a great set of Characters Give this book a try you will not be disappointed The audiobook was narrated by Dick Hill who did a great job, at times I thought [...]
A gritty, exciting and thrilling tale of murder, espionage, and corruptionTim Tigner has just joined my list of authors to look out for Pushing Brilliance is an action thriller that follows ex CIA Agent and former Olympic athlete Kyle Achilles The plot is exciting and wonderfully constructed, leading us across the globe from east and west USA to the center of government in Russia.Each time I need to select my next read it s not an easy task For some unknown reason, there have been too many times [...]
4.5 stars.This book is a conspiracy theorists wet dream Completely far fetched but you know that going in right It was a lot of fun Kyle Achilles, a former Olympic biathlete and covert operative is framed for the murder of his family To clear his name he must find the real killer, or killers But where to start He has very little to go on His only ally is his dead brother s fianc e, Katya, a brilliant Russian mathematician.They start with his father s and brother s failed business venture and beg [...]
I am following the free giveaways, and from time to time I do stumble upon an unknown author to me , that otherwise I am sure I wouldn t get a chance to read his books That was the case with Tim Tigner Introducing to me his hero Kyle Achilles It is a very fast pacing book Lots of twists The only reason I couldn t give it a 5 Star was the fact his hero was too Superman for my taste Too many of the actions were far from looking real in our real world I know it is a book, and it can be a bit imagin [...]
Brilliant story no pun intended The plot, the characters, the pace and rhythm of the story made excellent reading and it was thoroughly entertaining
The best The best part is that you have a great day with a little fun and interesting things are getting better
This is one of the best of Tim began Tim began his career in Soviet Counterintelligence with the US Army Special Forces, the Green Berets That was back in the Cold War days when, We learned Russian so you didn t have to, something he did at the Presidio of Monterey alongside Recon Marines and Navy SEALs.
Wow, just wow I could not read this fast enough Kyle comes across as Superman and charming hunk, capable of amazing feats and a mind to match I won t rehash the plot, but it involves a former CIA agent, murder in his family, a lovely dame in distress, a mind enhancing drug and those darn Russians It moves fast and satisfies in the end Just read it already
Given the number of high ratings I expected That s on me for the expectations Just another thriller with someone being pursued and not knowing why.
Undeniably Exquisite What next is the question The writer poses with such intelligence Just enough romance to keep it spicyLove the ride
DNF Quit after part 3.For me, the mystery was solved at the conclusion of part 3 actually, ch 95 Even though the hero said he had to make things right I had no motivation to continue The hero is described in the book as For you, putting a bullet through a brain or crossing a border with false papers is the equivalent of ordering brunch That made him a not very sympathetic character to me, he was too much of a superman to be believable I read as far as I did because the plot was engaging enough, [...]
Intrigue on Steroids This is one never ending, continuously suspenseful thrill ride with brief moments that allow you to catch your breath before it s unexpectedly stolen again And it doesn t stop until the very end Sit down, get comfy, take a deep, relaxing breath before the first page because you might not get another before the last Easily worth 5 stars Probably but I am still coming down from the high and calming my racing heart before I dive head first into the next in the Kyle Achilles se [...]
Like other readers this was my first Tim Tigner book My first thought after a couple of chapters was Wow Very well written, with great characters This book is easy to read, and flows very well Achilles is the main character, a tough guy with allot of skills, but allot of depth to him as well You can t help but like him The Author has done a great job in pulling you into the story, and he kept me interested throughout the book If you like Action Thrillers then definitely add Tim Tigner books to y [...]
I absolutely loved the story I loved the characters and enjoyed the author s writing style.I liked that Adam was a rock climber that added a different element to what he could do and how it was used in the story I was sympathetic to him and to the other main character, Katya, and thought they were well developed.I thought the plot was believable and the story held my interest to the point that I couldn t wait to pick the book up again and read late into the night I will definitely read his other [...]
This was a new author for me and I enjoyed the book a lot It starts out with a bang and doesn t stop until the end Some interesting, different characteristics Achilles, the main character is former CIA and thus has some amazing skills climbing buildings just being one of them His parents and brother are killed and he is fingered as the murderer 10 million is quite a motive Lots of surprises and lots of actions.
Loved it Interesting story with characters that had depth The pairing of the two main characters was a different spin on the usual male female hero scenarios.Had never read any of Tim s other works, but will now I hope there are several follow up books to Pushing Brilliance.Don t miss the opportunity to read this one One of my top 10 books out of the over 750 that I ve read.Great job Tim
Received an advanced copy of this and loved it, couldn t put it down It grabbed me right from the start, and had elements that I love in a book You ve got some great characters, both good guys an bad guys You know what happened, but you re not sure who, how or why It s fast paced with lots of action and some plot twists, and finally it had a good ending, believable and leaving you wanting
I was contacted by Mr Tigner and offered a pre release of Pushing Brillance I was skeptical at first, however, once I started reading I couldn t put the book down The characters have enough background detail to keep your interest in what is going to happen next The plot is practical and every chapter leaves you thinking, maybe I will read just one chapterI look forward to reading some of the other offerings by this author.
Adam Achilles Healy is a former CIA Operative who is framed for the murder of his family As he tries to prove his innocence he gets involved in a deadly game of international proportions.This is a real pager turner
Absolutely loved this book and author I am already reading another Tim Tigner book It is well written, characters well developed and suspenseful to the end It is a must read for those of us that like mystery, suspense, espionage, etc
As alwaysTim Tigner is the one who is brilliant His novels are always captivating and hold your interest throughout the whole story I can hardly wait for the next well written novel to come out.
Bigger than Life Hero in Nonstop Action ThrillerSimply put, if you are a fan of bigger than life action thriller heroes, Pushing Brilliance is for you The book introduces Kyle Achilles, who unlike his namesake, appears to have no heel Working with the beautiful, Russian mathematician Katya Kozara, they fight assassins out to kill them for reasons they can t begin to guess.Action is clearly the strong suit of this book It starts early and seldom slackens And each time you believe Tigner is about [...]
This book started out well enough and I appreciate the authors attempt to create a complex plot But his efforts reminded me of the difference between a master of this genre such as Lee Child who is the author I think Tim Tigner is trying to be and an amateur It didn t take too long into the book for it to all go bad The conflict at the heart of this plot is so absurd that it s impossible to suspend belief And in terms of character development, there was none The only purpose for ANY other charac [...]
