    A Chinese satellite is on a crash course with Earth. It contains enough plutonium to irradiate a large city. 
And that's the good news.... 
Michael Chase is a 26-year-old backpacker, a recent college graduate, an amateur. He flew to Hong Kong to find his missing father. Four hours later, he's running for his life. The Chinese secret police want him dead. The Conspiracy wants him dead. And the one person who he thinks is on his side, may want him dead too.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller. The basic plot is this: Michael Chase, a man in his mid-twenties, packs his bags and heads to China to investigate the death of his father. Along the way, he finds himself caught up in a plot to uncover a fusion reactor created by the Nazis and hidden in a remote area of China for safekeeping during WWII.

    The strength of this novel is its setting, pacing, and plot. The story takes off at break-neck speed in chapter one and does not slow down until the end. The author did an excellent job making me feel like I was actually in China while I was reading. I love books that can transport me to another place.

    The overall feel is the larger-than-life plot you see in action/thriller movies like Die Hard, 007, and Indiana Jones. I happen to be a fan of stories with far-fetched, fantastically imagined plots, so I had no trouble getting into this book. If you tend to like your thrillers a bit more on the realistic side, I'm not sure this would appeal as much.

    Gotcha Ending

    I ended up giving this book a 4 stars. It was a 5 star up until the very end. I don't want to give away the ending, but let's just say the reader is duped from the very beginning. Since the majority of the story was written from the perspective of Michael Chase, the secret being withheld from the audience doesn't play well. But it doesn't diminish the overall fun of this story.

    Over all this was a great read. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.
