1.Rivers of Gold by Adam Dunn

RIVERS OF GOLD is the first in the "More" series of dystopian thrillers featuring MARSOC operator Everett "Ever" More and NYPD Detective Sixto Santiago. The series is set in the Second Great Depression. The primary locale is New York City. The economy is shattered, the government is helpless, and crime and disease run rampant. An underground party circuit has developed, wherein rival cartels use a network of taxicabs to move contraband around the city. The only remaining obstacle to complete mobocracy is an experimental NYPD unit which relies on tough undercover detectives in taxicabs who try to keep the rising tide of chaos at bay. Detective Sixto Santiago is one of these cops, who is grudgingly partnered with a newcomer named Everett More, who does not seem to be aware of any rules governing police conduct. The brutal murder of a cab driver draws them into an increasingly complex investigation that eventually gives them a lead into the gang war between the party cartels. But as the case grows seedier and more dangerous, Santiago is forced to investigate his own partner, and is shocked to discover he is part of a covert CIA operation to infiltrate the NYPD. More is no cop he is something altogether more dangerous. But he is the only one Santiago can rely upon when their case leads them to the rising stars of New York s underworld, whose connections range from immigrant cab drivers to the captains of the finance industry.

My review :-
 Thrilling, fast paced and well structured. A perfect deep woven story with a captivating plot and a knack for engaging the reader. I loved it and would recommend it to everyone who reads mystery or thriller. I was left with a strong desire for more. 

2.The Big Dogs by Adam Dunn

This is the second novel in the "More" series of dystopian thrillers set in the Second Great Depression in NYC. More and Santiago's new unit is now detailed to the NYPD's most elite division to investigate the brutal mob killing of a high-profile hedge fund founder. Their team is also assigned its first Federal, and female, member (whom More and Santiago instantly dislike) from a financial-crimes division of the Treasury Department. Tensions immediately escalate when the team discovers the victim's underling is on the run with an encrypted computer drive containing information sensitive enough to draw in an array of international hit men who commence a deadly manhunt through the city. The case leads to a horrific terror plot against the city's buses in order to create a stock market crash for the benefit of the criminal mastermind who created the encrypted drive. More is turned on the loose in full combat mode over Santiago's objections and brings a taste of Afghanistan to New York City.

My review :- 
Captivating and engaging with a well delivered mystery.  I loved it and would recommend it to everyone.  The plot was strong with well developed characters and thrilling prose.

3.Saint Underground by Adam Dunn

The third installment in the "More" series of dystopian thrillers set in NYC during the Second Great Depression sees the greatest danger to the recurring ragtag team of cops and Feds. More s cover is blown and his CIA handler has been dragged in front of a Congressional investigative committee. Meanwhile the political feud between Republicans and Democrats has reached critical mass during the 2016 presidential conventions in NYC. Two feuding legislators who are using a shadow bank in the city s subway system to move slush funds through have their quarrel spill into open warfare. The Democrat has the entire political apparatus from City Hall to the NY State House to Washington on her side; the Republican has a former Special Forces veteran of Iraq (and More s nemesis) now turned mercenary. Soon full-scale war on a level far above what the NYPD can handle is breaking out all over the city, with the civilian population caught in the crossfire. Only More can save Santiago s team but will he be enough to stop his high-tech military counterpart?

Myreview :- 
Utterly thrilling and unique. The masterfully structured plot made this a one sit read for me. I loved it and this book kept me hooked throughout the story. I can't wait to read more from the author. I strongly recommend this to every mystery or thriller fan. The series is highly addictive. I can't wait for the next installment.
