Book Description

1 Jan 2011

“In a word: Brilliant….It left me breathless and awed….Pure exhilaration from the first page to the last.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Altar of Eden

“WOW! Double Wow!...Ghost Country by Patrick Lee will make Asimov and Heinlein cheer with the angels. The techno-thriller meets Sci-Fi, and the result is mind-blowing.”
—Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of Disciple

Patrick Lee reinvented and revitalized the contemporary thriller with his extraordinary debut The Breach (“Audacious and terrifying” —Lee Child). Now his conflicted ex-cop/ex-con hero Travis Chase is back in the breathtaking follow-up Ghost Country. Both Michael Crichton and Dean Koontz fans, X-Files aficionados and devotees of FOX TV’s Fringe, will be blown away by Lee’s Ghost Country—a nightmarish tale of a nefarious plot unleashed at the highest levels of government that will bring about the end of everything in a matter of a few short months.

Product Description


“Patrick Lee’s Ghost Country is in a word: Brilliant. Less a novel, than an adventure, it left me breathless and awed. It’s explosive, innovative and ultimately mind-blowing. Pure exhilaration from the first page to the last.” (James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Doomsday Key)

“Settle back and savor this one. Patrick Lee has an intense brand of storytelling. He’s a most welcome addition to the genre. The real deal. I look forward to reading more from him.” (Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Emperor's Tomb)

“WOW! Double Wow! Starkly original, Ghost Country by Patrick Lee will make Asimov and Heinlein cheer with the angels. The techno-thriller meets Sci-Fi, and the result is mind-blowing. Makes Tom Clancy look like the slowest child in the class.” (Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author)

From the Back Cover

For decades, inexplicable technology has passed into our world through the top secret anomaly called the Breach.

The latest device can punch a hole into the future . . .

What Paige Campbell saw when she opened a door into seventy years from now scared the hell out of her. She and her Tangent colleagues brought their terrible discovery to the President—and were met with a hail of automatic gunfire after leaving the White House. Only Paige survived.

Fearing a terrifying personal destiny revealed to him from the other side of the Breach, Travis Chase abandoned Tangent . . . and Paige Campbell. Now he must rescue her—because Paige knows tomorrow’s world is desolate and dead, a ghost country scattered with the bones of billions. And Doomsday will dawn in just four short months . . . unless they can find the answers buried in the ruins to come.

But once they cross the nightmare border into Ghost Country, they might never find their way back . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars great follow-up 2 Jan 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ok - so you've read 'The Breach' - no? then go and do so before bothering with Ghost Country as it makes more sense to do so. Now you've read the first part of Patrick Lee's series sit back and enjoy this second installment of the completely bonkers but action packed adventures of Travis Chase. Once again the hero tackles time travelling artifacts and wild conspiracy theories that unbelivably all link back to him. So its not going to tax you intellectually but what you get is plenty of action, some puzzles and story twists. This is just asking to be made into a US TV series along the lines of the x-files meets lost meets 24 meets flashforward. Complete nonsense but a great read. Put away all sense of reality and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Second Adventure For Travis Chase 5 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having really enjoyed his debut novel and the first Travis Chase adventure The Breach, I had hoped that Patrick Lee's follow-up novel Ghost Country would offer up a five star experience. Its just a little disappointing therefore, to have to report that whilst this second outing for Travis Chase and the folks from Tangent is highly entertaining and at least on a par with The Breach it fails to truly surpass its predecessor and features some quite glaring weaknesses.

The most significant of these is the conspiracy that brings Travis Chase (still a horrible name) back into Tangent's orbit. For the first half of the book, whilst the precise nature of the conspiracy and its eventual aims remains deliberately obscured from both Travis & Paige and us readers, Ghost Country works fine. When the conspiracy's goal and methodology were revealed however, I just found myself unable to suspend my disbelief enough to go along with it. I could happily accept the principal of time travel, which features heavily in the book, but without giving away any key plot points, the motivation behind the conspiracy, its mechanics and what it would ultimately achieve just didn't work for me. Not when you considered precisely how many people would have to sign up to it and who they were. I could have believed a small cabal could come up with something so twisted and evil but not that hundreds or even thousands of disparate individuals would sign on and keep schtum about it for years.

It didn't help that the conspirators' plans also felt very half-baked and none of the individuals involved ever came alive as characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid follow up 24 Feb 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Middle book of "the Breach" trilogy - important to read them in sequence! This is less bonkers than the first one, a slightly calmer approach but still great fun. An artefact shows a desolated future as a result of something that is going to happen in the next few months. Can the future be changed by action in the present to prevent the incident? Again some innovative concepts, all out pace and a very enjoyable sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong sequel 23 July 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Read this back to back with the Breach. As with the Breach the plot line is very well structured and contains some good set pieces, especially the time travel ones involving the new entity delivered by the breach. As with The Breach, Lee addresses the paradoxical what if questions head on in clever, logical way that makes complete sense in the context of the story.

I agree with other reviewers that the stimulus for the conspiracy and what it was going to achieve doesn't quite stack up and the protagonists of the conspiracy were quite poorly fleshed out. It was always going to be tough to match the uniqueness of The Breach, but Ghost Country comes pretty darn close despite the flimsiness of the conspiracy.

The cliffhanger form The Breach is touched on during Ghost Country and looks like playing a part in the final book of the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, breathtaking 29 Jun 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading 'the Breach' a year or so ago I went and bought his other two novels. I have been on holiday this last week and the past 2 days spent reading 'Ghost Country' and 'Deep Sky' back-to-back, done little else in fact.
I have to say all 3 novels are stunningly good. Great plots and real edge of seat drama. The twists and reveals are worth the price alone.
I just wish he'd write more of the same. Have just visited his website and see a new novel is due in 2014. Not the same threads or characters but still sounds good, apparently the film rights are sold as well.
I add that last point because I think the Breach trilogy would make one or more great movies....
If you buy these books don't start reading unless you have plenty of time to spare.
