Bourne Identity meets Captain America meets DaVinci Code meets … no, that would be telling.
A delightful mash up of modern thriller genres to produce a fun, fast read. The reader is sucked along with the bewildered, tired, often beat up protagonist into a world of apocalyptic threat set in modern (well, 2006) Los Angeles.
Most geographic and cultural references are close enough, though I’ve yet to see a Corvette convertible with a back seat and trunk, not to mention one in which “scooting over” from the passenger’s seat to the driver’s is expedient. Oh, and several characters jump from vehicles going 60 mph or faster without apparent injury. Don’t try this at home.
Logical and satisfying conclusion to first of a three story series
But, hey, it’s not that kind of story. Tighten your seat belt and enjoy the ride.
