UNDERCOVER AVENGER (2) by Rita Herron delivers ongoing intrigue at an isolated research center where genetic experiments are taking place. After being severely burned in an explosion intended to kill him, Eric Caldwell becomes a patient at the center to find answers. When Melissa Fagan, who is searching for her birth parents, learns that her mother was a patient at the center, she gets a job there to find her. Fans of the TV series The Pretender may enjoy this premise, but the overly complex plotting makes for a less-than-satisfying read.
