THE SOLOMON EFFECT
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Thriller, Mystery, Paranormal
If the reader is of the same mind as protagonist Jax Alexander, she might not buy into all the woo-woo stuff, but Graham's tale unfolds with such a leveling degree of detail and realism that even the cynic is convinced. It's a roller-coaster ride that bounces between some of the most politically unstable regions of the world and back with heart-stopping speed.
A remote viewer who works in secret for the U.S. government, October "Tobie" Guinness can see what's happening on the other side of the world without leaving the confines of a dark and shadowy room. This time, however, she has to hook up with CIA agent Jax Alexander, a loose cannon who is always on his superior's blacklist, on a chase to stop what could be the next apocalypse. Jax questions the woo-woo stuff, but he's going to have to rely on Tobie's talent and steady nerves as they race to discover the secrets behind a sunken World War II Russian submarine. (HARPER Oct., 400 pp., $7.99)
