R.A. Van Vleet’s Dark Traffic is a gripping novel that will keep readers captivated from start to finish. The author masterfully weaves an intricate plot full of twists and turns, providing a comprehensive view of the narrative’s setting and events. The book delves into heavy themes, including death, sexual harassment, and violence, demonstrating the author’s diligent research and ability to skillfully weave these elements into the story. One of the standout features of the book is how well the author explains technical concepts, such as piloting an airplane or navigating government procedures. This adds to the authenticity of the story, and readers will be left eager for more. Despite the fast-paced narrative and multiple scenarios playing out simultaneously, the story’s creative direction is justified when all the threads are woven together in a climactic finale. The characters in Dark Traffic are another highlight. Although the book is heavily focused on action and thriller, the characters are multi-dimensional and become more complex as the story progresses. This provides a sense of realism in a violent setting as readers come to understand the characters’ intentions and reasons for their actions.
Dark Traffic is a remarkable crime-centered novel that will have you hooked from the first 20 pages. Regardless of age, I would recommend it to anyone interested in mystery and crime. Dark Traffic has the potential to spark conversations about taboo topics and promote more open-minded perspectives on these issues.
