Publisher's Summary

Thirty years ago, in a facility buried beneath a vast Wyoming emptiness, an experiment gone awry accidentally opened a door. It is the world’s best-kept secret—and its most terrifying. Trying to regain his life in the Alaskan wilds, ex-con/ex-cop Travis Chase stumbles upon an impossible scene: a crashed 747 passenger jet filled with the murdered dead, including the wife of the [resident of the United States.

Though a nightmare of monumental proportions, it pales before the terror to come, as Chase is dragged into a battle for the future that revolves around an amazing artifact. Allied with a beautiful covert operative whose life he saved, Chase must now play the role he’s been destined for—a pawn of incomprehensible forces or humankind’s final hope—as the race toward Apocalypse begins in earnest. Because something is loose in the world. And doomsday is not only possible...it is inevitable.

    "Superb"
    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jeff Gurner pulls you right into each character and the action, right down to a not-so-real giggle. That voice and giggle were beyond anything I would have imagined reading the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book kept my heart pumping, anxious to hear what would come next.


    Any additional comments?

    Patrick Lee has earned a place on my short list of authors I will search for new titles. Kudos Mr. Lee!

    "You probably have better books on your wishlist"

    Difficult to believe that this was a NYT bestseller. The story is weak and not saved by the "surprise" ending. Lots of gratuitous descriptions of violence. (Spoiler: does a good writer really have to split a guy in half with an elevator and describe the wreckage???) Silly, predictable story begging for a movie and a sequel, neither of which I'll be looking for any time soon. Fortunately there are well written sci-fi thrillers out there.

    Would you try another book from Patrick Lee and/or Jeff Gurner?

    doubtful


    Would you be willing to try another book from Patrick Lee? Why or why not?

    Interesting story idea and I listened to it, but a lot of "bashing in" heads with a crowbar. I don't mind the occasional murder, but a good portion of this book was graphic description of death.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gurner???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    What character would you cut from The Breach?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    no

    "Great performance with a twist"

    I enjoyed this book, with reservations. It was pretty much non-stop action from start to finish. The performance by Jeff Gurner was great. I also thought the idea of the Breach was clever; the ending reminding me a little of Inception with layers within layers. What I didn't like was the rather formulaic plot line of: women and/or men that have extraordinary military capabilities, but are killed or tricked easily by evil masterminds; ditto brilliant scientists and government strategists. I also get tired of the kick-butt, militarily-adept female who commands men, kills with ease, and has Zena, Princess Warrior capabilities, but always seems to be a brick-shy-of-a-full-load, when things go bad. Come on! There are a host of better ways to have written this book without some of the B-movie parts. Gosh! Just can't wait for the movie!

    "Excellent, action packed,believable story!"

    I really liked this first book of the trilogy.
    I have already finished the second. I will by the third for sure. If you like good action and suspense you'll love this series.
    Narration was the best part!

    "B minus: story line with time jumps to be a better person!"

    Primary character is a felon murderer just released and rescuer of world & alien connection. Story line has time jumps to keep you engaged with a potentially plausible story

    "not my style"

    I couldn't listen to another minute. I tried hard, but men donning invisibility suits was just too much for me to bear.
