I first cracked open this thriller expecting the usual predictable plot with generic characters that would make reading it a chore. Unbeknownst to me, I would spend an entire afternoon curled on my couch entirely consumed in the gripping tale of a drug-hustler on the run for her life and a down-and-out cop trying to save her.

Author Patrick Hoffman doesn’t hold back as he reveals through a cast of shady characters a struggle to achieve a better life despite addiction, a run in with Russian drug dealers, and robbery. The suspenseful plot twists keep you engaged and questioning your own ideas of right and wrong.

My interest continued with each turn of the page, and I only regret that there were not more pages for me to turn. I found myself empathetic to the characters in “The White Van” and still find myself attached to them, even now after finishing the book.

If you are looking for a quick, gripping read with a plot that keeps the suspense coming and characters that are so realistic they seem to come off of the page, then “The White Van” is the book for you.

Samantha Rose loves travel and reading books of all genres.
