"Mayer, a Special Forces veteran and author of Eyes of the Hammer, keeps story and characters firmly under control. Even his scenario is chillingly plausible, given the fluid parameters of scientific ethics in a technological and political climate in which dollars must show immediate results." (Publishers Weekly)
Have come to appreciate Mr. Mayer's stories, but this one struck a cord, as it is intriguing enough and one can't help but wonder, as scientists work more with DNA and genetic engineering, if something like this could not be happening somewhere. Therefore, the premise might be plausible. Personally, I was glad that Holly was the ultimate hero.
This third installment in the green beret series is a thrilling ride from start to finish. Blending a bit of horror into the mix it keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.
