The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Breach launches his explosive new thriller series featuring former Special Forces operative Sam Dryden
Dryden, retired special forces, lives a quiet life in a small town on
the coast of Southern California. While out on a run in the middle of
the night, a young girl runs into him on the seaside boardwalk. Barefoot
and terrified, she’s running from a group of heavily armed men with one
clear goal—to kill the fleeing child. After Dryden helps her evade her
pursuers, he learns that the eleven year old, for as long as she can
remember, has been kept in a secret prison by forces within the
government. But she doesn’t know much beyond her own name, Rachel. She
only remembers the past two months of her life—and that she has a skill
that makes her very dangerous to these men and the hidden men in charge.
who lost his wife and young daughter in an accident five years ago,
agrees to help her try to unravel her own past and make sense of it, to
protect her from the people who are moving heaven and earth to find them
both. Although Dryden is only one man, he’s a man with the
extraordinary skills and experience—as a Ranger, a Delta, and five years
doing off-the-book black ops with an elite team. But, as he slowly
begins to discover, the highly trained paramilitary forces on their
heels is the only part of the danger they must face. Will Rachel’s own
unremembered past be the most deadly of them all?
If you like Lee Child you will love Patrick Lee's books. This is a well written, fast paced, page turner. Right from page one it's GO. There's secret agents, secret drug tests, mind-reading, and human weaponry. And the government is tied into it all.
U.S. governmental surveillance satellites make it virtually impossible for Sam and Rachel to hide. Heart-racing scenes in Chicago with high tech weapons, mind-reading, parachuting between buildings and government agents everywhere. Will Sam and Rachel be able to escape this time? Is Rachel really an innocent victim as Sam thinks she is or is she diabolical? You won't be able to put it down until you find out!
In addition to being a thrill ride, you will question how much is too much. Bio-ethical questions will abound! But really at the heart of this fast paced thriller there is a love story. How far will Sam go to protect Rachel and free her from the government and herself? Will helping Rachel give him his life back or ruin it for good?
Looks like a great new series has arrived! It's a great read!
