Bob Mayer weaves a great tale here. Of special interest to me as a novice writer is the way he exposes mind-bending technology in a matter-of-fact way. Though his psychic warriors possess magical technology, they do not seem to be science fiction characters. I believe in them as a reader. Maybe it is the author's past as a Green Beret which gives his word a kind of real special cache. Anyway I felt like I was being given a peak at real Special Ops not science fiction.
Mayer's plot never stops. He winds the reader up like a spring and unloads him or her into new scenes seamlessly. Lots of other reviewers will go into the details of his story so I do not need to. Don't get me wrong: the story is a real humdinger. Further to the author's suspension of disbelief in the reader concerning the impact of technology is the hint that the military in on the verge of playing god with its new as yet undisclosed technologies. I seriously enjoyed the undramatic way these (kind of) subliminal messages filtered under the gloss of hi-tech situations. This is my first book by Bob Mayer. I will now read the rest of his books. Nothing like discovering a new writer to plough through.
