Publisher's Summary

Sam Dryden lives quietly in a small coastal town in Southern California, buying and fixing up old houses. It's good physical work that he's come to love. But his peaceful life is shattered when he gets a phone call from an old friend in trouble. A phone call that pulls Dryden into the middle of a situation that's as violent as it is baffling.

For FBI agent Marnie Calvert, it all begins at a secluded trailer in the Mojave Desert - the scene of a horrifying crime but also of an impossible and mysterious act of heroism. At least it should have been impossible. Determined to learn the truth, what Calvert discovers leads her to Sam Dryden - an ex-Special Forces operative whose ordinary life has suddenly become anything but.

Through their actions, Dryden and Calvert have unknowingly placed themselves in the crosshairs of a frightening and dangerous enemy, the result of a generations-long conspiracy finally coming to fruition. What these people have is a technology that allows them to affect events before they even happen. How they are planning to use it, however, will result in the death of millions. To defeat them, Dryden will need to do more than think fast - he'll need to think around corners and face down an enemy that can seize on his mistakes before he even makes them.

Following the national best seller Runner, Sam Dryden, Patrick Lee's most indelible creation, returns in one of the most compelling, breathless thrillers yet - -Signal.

    "Not as good as the previous Dryden book..."

    Sigh..I had high hopes for this and had it on my wish list forever, but this was a little boring and predictable to me. This was too much like a time travel book to me and I admit that is not my favorite type of novel. It was entertaining, but that was all.

    "ok but clumsy"

    my first gripe is the bad science and misunderstanding of a redacted neutrino discovery used to describe how something works. I would have preferred the it just works but nobody knows how approach.
    I was entertained and like Patrick Lee. this is just my least favorite of the past five books.
    the narrator was excellent.

    "Not Quite The Twilight Zone"

    This book started out and I thought this will be interesting. The concept is interesting, the characters are good, but a little over half way through I felt like the writer got in a hurry to end the book for some reason.
    There are so many directions this book could have gone, but in the end I was left with nothing but disappointment

    "Great imagination"
    Any additional comments?

    This author has a great imagination. I discovered him, and binged on all his books. Now I'm waiting for another. Sam Dryden compares favorably to Jack Reacher, who I LOVE. SciFi aspects are always a plus. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't think the ending was obvious. Maybe in general, but not the specifics, which I found interesting and unexpected.

    "A good Sam Dryden #2.."

    I don't think Patrick Lee will ever top Runner, which is still the most action packed book I have heard in the last few years and the only one i've ever listened to from beginning to end without stopping. Signal is a good book though and worthy of a listen. It keeps your interest. Like the first book, it has that supernatural or scifi element mixed with the action spy/assassin thriller which i can't get enough of...

    "Challenging and Good"

    I downloaded this book after enjoying listening to Runner. This book did not disappoint. The listener or reader will need to pay attention at times as the author plays with information related to time travel - it gets tricky, but then this book isn't just mind candy with a simple plot. There are twists, good character development, and action. I hope the series continues. I enjoy the hero, the sci-fi and detective elements.

    "Riveting, exciting, great book!"

    Narration is excellent.
    I did not want it to end!
    The story grabs you in the beginning and does not fail to continue to surprise and engage the reader (or the listener, as in my case). It is a suspense-filled tale with just enough science fiction/speculation to vastly expand the scope of the story.
    Patrick Lee is a great writer. I look forward to reading his books in the future.

    "Another great book by Patrick Lee"
    Any additional comments?

    Patrick Lee is really on a role as some what of a new author. If you have not listen to the Breach series then you really should. I thought this 2nd Sam Dryden book as just as good as the first one. I emailed the author and asked him about the breach series and unfortunately he told me that he would not be writing anymore of those. But the Dryden series is excellent. The thing that I like most about his books is that they start off fast and they never let up…….

    "Love a good book that makes you think"

    Definitely need to give Patrick Lee credit for taking a topic that's almost impossible to wrap your head around and make a great story out of it.
