Publisher's Summary

The human mind has always been unhackable…until now.

Deep in the Afghan mountains, Sergeant Michael Pitcher discovers an object with powers that defy explanation. After interacting with it, he suffers a traumatic seizure and is flown home for evaluation.

Cleared by the doctors, Michael goes home to his relieved wife, Josie. But he’s a changed man. The once-loving husband is now coldly withdrawn. After emptying the couple’s bank account, he disappears into the night.

When a team of scientists connected to Sergeant Pitcher vanishes without a trace, CIA agent Dean Ninemeyer comes to him for insight - only to find that the recovering soldier has also disappeared.

Dean and Josie must now join forces in a desperate race against time, searching for answers in an ever-twisting mystery. What they uncover is a chilling conspiracy that already has the fate of the world in its grip.

Action mystery sci-fi suspense thriller...Whew!

The author of this book is the same author of the Tier One books cowritten with Jeff Wilson. If you have not listened to those books I would recommend that you do as that is a fantastic series. If you have kindle unlimited those books are FREE to read and listen to. This book too is a freebie on Kindle unlimited. Not that I'm pushing but it does kind of pay for itself in the long run.
Anyway, about this book. To begin with, I have to start by telling you that this is narrated by Ray Porter. I always enjoy listening to him, his narration it outstanding. He always gets the correct emotions and sarcasm and levity or seriousness.
So it's 1963 and Captain Will Barnes wakes up in a padded room, wearing a straight jacket, parched mouth and no clue as to why. When he finally meets with his commanding officer he doesn't remember a thing about what brought him to this place. Nor does he remember when the colonel tells him that he has murdered his own wife in their bed three weeks ago.

Now Michael Pitcher finds something in a spherical cave chamber in Afghanistan. There is a comatose terrorist and then he hears a woman talking to him in the cave, but no one is there. The voice says it wants to know him.

Meanwhile in upstate NY an old military missile silo has been purchased and is being prepared for doomsday by Willie Barnes, he's now 76 years old. He gives Josie Pritchard (a journalist) a tour of his silo. When she says something under her breath Willie turns and asks "does she talk to you too?"

I can't say any more without spoiling this book. This is an EXCELLENT sci-fi mystery thriller with plenty of action and suspense.
My HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS!!

You'll never see it coming

I've never written a full review, just answered the pre-set questions, but this book made a special impact. I won't re-hash the story, that's all in the book summary. I admit that I mainly bought this book for the narrator. I just LOVE Ray Porter's narrations and the summary intrigued me.
When I was about 2/3 through, I was at first disappointed that the deliberate character developments from the beginning abruptly stopped and were replaced with pure action. To be honest, there could have been more bridges from a character's backstory to bring us to current events, but I quickly forgot about those gaps. The showdown was perfectly paced and easy to follow, it was all logical. After the story concluded and the epilogue started, I expected the usual continuation of the character's life after the event, but got something very different. I have over 600 audiobooks and have read many more paper books in my life, but rarely has my jaw literally dropped. And I mean literally. It changed my perspective on the whole story and I really hope that there will be a follow-up book that picks up where 'Reset' ends. Don't get me wrong, it's a fully completed story without a cliffhanger, but with endless possibilities. Go ahead, spend that credit, you won't regret it!

This one has it all!

The subject matter got my attention but when I saw Ray Porter was narrating I couldn’t spend my credit fast enough! I was not disappointed!! This one really does have it all, science, government agencies, a prepper, something alien, possible end of the world, love, betrayal, zombie ants (sort of), you get the idea! Somehow it all works! Could be the voice of Ray Porter, he can turn silver into gold, but overall I think Mr. Andrews did a solid job here and I thought it was a fun ride! As other reviewers mentioned there is a glitch or two, I didn’t find it a big deal in the scheme of things. Also there is a commentary by the author at the end, some people seem to have their feathers ruffled over it, my feathers remain unruffled. It’s just a commentary not the end of the world, or is it? You be the judge.

Excellently written story

At the end of the book, provides some facts about how humans have abused the planet and I agree and think everyone should take it to heart and act upon it. We need to reset our political climate in order to change our destiny!

good book, good narration

I am a fan of Brian Andrews books and a huge fan of Ray Porter so it's not surprising I enjoyed this audible story. It's a military techno thriller, sci-fi, action, type novel without politics which is becoming increasingly hard to find.

The story stuck with me.

The story itself is action packed and engaging, everything you want in a thriller. Since listening to the book, I find myself thinking about how different perspectives, real/honest or manipulated are ultimately irrelevant when facing a existential threat. It is really hard to review without giving things away, so just give it a read. You wont regret it.

Publisher's Summary doesn't do it justice.

It's almost like the publisher didn't read this book. The reviews were interesting and I took a chance, good decision.
I kept expecting cliches, typical troupes, and technology/science hand-waving. But, this book was really well put together and used plausible explanations. This fits into the Twilight Zone style of books. Which is refreshing.
Some might be shocked by the ending, and it mostly fit. But I'll not nit-pick and give it a standing ovation.

My only complaint is the author's comments at the end. It comes across as exactly as he suggests, standing on a soap box. With information that can objectively be considered sensationalized. After providing some well researched content in the story, it was disappointing because it fits more into populist views on science and not shared by people in the field.

Worth the time

This book is worth the time for the scifi people, easy to envision the story as I listened. The book had some surprises but kept on track so the listener could keep up.
Would like to see book two on the same story
