Book Review

by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Thriller

RT Rating

The second Gideon novel picks up immediately from the first and doesn’t let up. The writing is taut and intense with twists and turns to surprise even the die-hard thriller fan. The terrorist plot has been done to death, but the authors make it fresh and original.

A work colleague from Los Alamos thrusts Gideon into a hostage drama. Reed Chalker has taken an innocent family captive, and Gideon has to help de-escalate the situation. Chalker blames radiation experiments, but comes across as a total loon. A terrorist plot soon emerges and all evidence of the mastermind behind the scenes leads straight to Gideon. (GRAND CENTRAL, Jan., 368 pp., $26.99)
