The anomaly called the Breach is the government’s most carefully guarded secret.
But there is another secret even less known... and far more terrifying.
As the U.S. President addresses the nation fromthe Oval Office, a missile screams toward the White House. In a lightning flash, the Chief Executive is dead, his mansion in ruins, and two cryptic words are the only clue to the assassins’ motives: “See Scalar.”
Now Travis Chase of the covert agency Tangent - caretakers of the Breach and all its grim wonders - along with partner and lover Paige Campbell and technology expert Bethany Stewart, have only twenty-four hours to unearth a decades-old mystery once spoken of in terrified whispers by the long since silenced. But their breakneck race cross-country - and back through time and malleable memory - is calling the total destructive might of a shadow government down upon them. For Travis Chase has a dark destiny he cannot be allowed to fulfill....

I've enjoyed this trilogy very much. The first two books are so different and unique - even from each other. The only reason I didn't give the book a 5 star rating for the story is that I was expecting something "more" from the ending. Even though I read other reviews that mentioned that the ending seemed somewhat rushed, it didn't keep me from reading the book. I just wish there had been a few more chapters.
It's still one of my favorite series and in about a year I will listen to all three books in a row and it might give me a different outlook on the ending.
I enjoyed this book. The twists in the plot kept me guessing and made the listen enjoyable. I am ready for the next book from Mr. Lee.
I'm loving audio books more each day-being able to walk the dog, do the dishes or keep an eye on grandkids in the pool-all while listening to a book is great. My favorite genres are mystery/romance, some paranormal and lots of Science Fiction.
Deep Sky" is the final novel in the series. It does a good job of winding up all the dangling strings left in 'Ghost Country" and even some left over from 'The Breach"
As a whole, I very much enjoyed the series and recommend it for a sic-fi/future history reader. Some romance but not too overdone, interesting tech thoughts kept me involved, the male and female protagonists were both well written as was the plot as a whole.
Well worth the credit.
It's a shame that it's the end of the series. I would have carried on reading a few more of these storylines.

This is my first time reading Patrick Lee. Deep Sky was an Audible Sale Pick, based on previous books I have read. And I was super surprised. Could not put it down. One of those gets you right from the beginning books. Which are my favorite. If you like Sci-Fi, intrigue, secrets from the past and the future, this one is for you. [Smile]
I thought the ending was fitting and wrapped up the series very well. I hope Patrick Lee isn't done with Science Fiction. He has a lot of great ideas and this series proves it.
The lead of course.
As if written by Phillip K. Dick but directed by John McTiernan.
Sorry its over - really liked this series. If you liked the other two, you won't be disappointed by this one.
Noah writes and daydreams for the pure joy of transposing his thoughts to the written word. His adventures & dog Dusty are his escape!
If you start with the first in the series "The Breach" you may be a bit disappointed in this 3rd entry. Its still a great listen, but it has fallen off from the first and second.
I loved the first two books and while I enjoyed this book it wasn't as good as the first two in many ways.
First off this book is SHORT. Perhaps it didn't need to be as long as the previous two but it felt a little rushed and less detailed than the other two books. That's not necessarily a bad thing but I think it took a little bit away from this book.
Second, the ending was pretty awesome in some ways but I felt a little dissatisfied. I mean they didn't explicitly say "and then X happened" because it should be really obvious; I just felt a little empty like the story was missing a chapter at the end. Perhaps the writer was best stopping the book where he did...
It would be interesting to see if we could explore more stories in this universe but...well I don't want to spoil the ending here but I'm guessing the stories would have to be quite different. Still, I would love to see it.
You will want to listen to/read the first two books in this series before starting Deep Sky.
Deep Sky was a satisfying conclusion to the "Breach" series. Lee does a great job tying up several plot lines and filling in the blanks. I'm assuming this is the last book although there is potentially room for more. Lee's creativity is amazing and I'm sure he is a very intelligent individual. My one issue with his writing is his greatest strength, the ability to create tension and drama is sometimes his greatest weakness. There was a scene where Paige was approaching "someone" and had to be very quiet. Lee went on and on with "another step and another and another" ad nauseam. It took me out of the scene and made me think of "Happy Gilmore" when Chubbs was saying "Just tap it in. Just tap it in." "Tappy Tappy!!!"
Other than that issue (which exists in every book in the series), Lee is an incredible author and I'm hoping in future books he learns to be less liberal with his brush strokes when creating his art.
As always, Jeff Gurner did a great job narrating the book.
