Out in the desert sits Mount Dragon, a very secretive experimental research complex, owned by the ecentric genius Brent Scopes. Guy Carson and Susana Cabeza de Vaca, are the new scientists that have come to the center to do work on finding a cure for the flu, at least that's what they believe. Then Guy is secretly approached by his past professor, Dr. Levine, a one time good friend of Scopes, now on a crusade to put an end to Scopes' research, fearing he will change the human race as we know it.
That's the start of this page turning mystery/thriller that keeps the earbuds in, for a bittersweet end. Throughout the book though, are a few chuckles with tantilizing tidbits on survival in the desert, genetic research, and some horsesence (you'll get the meaning of that statement, when you read the book) I felt for these characters and the things that happened to them, as they were very well protrayed by the narrator. It's just a very interesting book, that I have no trouble recommending.
That's the question that plagues Jake Fisher. When Jake is dumped 6 years earlier, after falling in love with Natalie, he was willing to bow out. Now, it appears she's missing and some very bad people want to know where she is. Everyone in this story has a secret and not telling it, which is driving Jake mad, but the worst of it all, is that Natalie is missing and he doesn't know if she's safe or not. The whole book is a huge dangerous puzzle that doesn't get solved til the end, but keeps you guessing as the clues mount up.
The kind of book that I wanted to go to the end and read it, just to get rid of the anxiety, but I didn't so I thoroughly enjoyed it, as everything unfolded.
Love this story. It's a non-stop suspenseful thriller, that keeps you on the edge of your seat
awaiting the outcome. Killian thinks he's trying to locate an addict ex-wife and children for his client. As the story unfolds, he finds himself being followed and close to death. Something is up with this job, it's too simple to have such a high payout. Thus, the stakes get higher as an old secret comes to light. The story doesn't disappoint right up to it's thought evoking end. Gerard Doyle does an excellent job bringing the Irish feel to the book.
Sounded to be an interesting book, with an argument between beliefs of God vs. science. I listened for several hours and it just couldn't hold my interest, so I gave up.
I had put off listening to this book for some reason, I guess thinking it would be one of those frustrating books where the heroin always makes dumb moves jumping to the wrong conclusion. Not the case, Lacey is an intelligent forensic dental expert with a haunted past that is stalking her once more. It has a romance with a bit of triangle to it, but only makes it more interesting. The main theme is the 'who done it and who keeps doing it', and why now. I thought it to be an interesting thriller that kept me guessing.
Luke Daniels sounds perfect for this character, a 21 year old druid (that's actually a couple of thousand years old). It's a fast paced magical tale with almost too many characters to keep track of. They all seem to want his help or our hero's head, or should I say magical sword. It's a fun read with a dog that makes the perfect sidekick providing comic relief. If you enjoy Dresden Files then give this series a try.
I've read all these books in order, and have to say this would be a good finale for the series. A good story of Wrath and Wrath's parents are told, and kinda wraps things up for the original cast of characters. Along with Wrath's story are other stories wound around this one. Xcor and Layla, Tres and Selena, Assail and Sol, all the males being in the criminal element. I just haven't gotten attached to these new characters like the Brotherhood, so that's why I said that this book is a good stopping place for me. All and all though, this one is not to be missed for BDB fans.
Katniss finds shes been betrayed into being part of the rebellion and must now come to grips with the fact that she is also the main hope of the oppressed people. Her life has changed, her relationships with Gale and Peeta have changed, and she doesn't know who to trust. This is an emotion filled finale, filled with battle strategy, action, and maybe a huge understanding of human nature, all through the eyes of Katniss.
Not to be missed by any age group.
PG-13 style fantasy, complete with the hard headed heroine, that frustrates the reader from start to finish.She's a shape shifter turned vamp, that finds herself with a bullseye on her back with most everyone that she meets. Kitta doesn't want to be a vampire and acts like a spoiled brat most of the time, leading Nathaniel on and making his life miserable by rejecting him and doing as she pleases. Leaves you in a cliffhanger, that doesn't look like it will be resolved since the book was released Aug 2011, and the final book isn't on the shelf yet.
This is a PI team not to be passed up. Lincoln and Joe are a great blend of humor and humanity. Joe the calm well spoken of the two, and Lincoln dives in to trouble without a second thought of putting his life on the line. It starts out as a murder/suicide, perhaps a kidnapping involved with clues unfolding and danger getting deeper throughout, with suspenseful action and surprises til the ending. The characters of Lincoln, Joe and Amy grow on you, making you glad this is only the first of the series.
Another great Reacher tale, this one back in the Army. He's on the trail of a couple of murders that shouldn't be linked but all the clues head in that direction. Everything points to a broad conspiracy within the ranks of an ever changing military. A highly suspenseful story true to style as only Lee Child and Dick Hill can tell.
