The way the author blends true events from the past with an action packed story in the present keeps readers on the edge of their seats.

Not so much?

Kurt Kamm thrills with a tale of modern day action that echoes a real life tragedy from the past.

Nick Carter is a firefighter who finally knows what he wants from his life. He’s got something special going with ATF Special Agent Cindi, and he’s finally decided to tell her exactly how much she means to him. He’s got the whole day mapped out – but life interferes when she gets called away on a high priority case. When it becomes clear that she is dealing with home grown terrorists determined to make their grievances known with a bang, Nick is soon pulled in to the case as well.

As a search and rescue expert with the fire department, Nick is the guy to call when you need information on fire and tight spaces. As a child, he was told the story of how his father died tragically in the Sylmar Tunnel Disaster, and so he devoted his life to learning how to rescue people from similar disasters. It’s a noble undertaking, but as you read through Nick’s experiences past and present, you’ll soon find that Nick may have built his life on a lie. Tunnel Visions is told in a back and forth style that uses flashbacks to give you a greater understanding of the characters and the backstory, rather than laying it out for you outright. It does build some suspense, but it can also get confusing at times as you try to piece it all together.

There are three different story lines being told as you read through Tunnel Visions. The first is that of the disaster in the Sylmar Tunnel, a real life tragedy that occurred in 1971. Seventeen miners were killed when methane gas that had formed in the tunnel ignited. The second is the story of Nick Carter – how he came to know the truth about his father, and what has led him to be the person he is now. Finally, you have the fast paced adventure of Cindi and Nick as they try to uncover a terrorist plot to disrupt the water supply – at any cost.

Tunnel Visions is a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, with plenty of mysteries small and large to uncover. Though the modern day terrorist plot and the story of the tunnel explosion in the past are both engaging and gripping, Nick’s journey to find the truth about his father falls a little flat at times. Overall, though it’s a well told story that is for the most part both plausible and entertaining.
