Book Description

19 Nov 2013 Covert-One Novel

With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the President was forced to establish his own clandestine group - Covert-One. It is only activated as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out.

When Christian Dresner of Dresner Industries unveils a device that will revolutionize the world - the Merge, a personal computer that communicates directly with your brain - army microbiologist Colonel Jon Smith is assigned to assess its military potential. In addition to giving you the ability to control all your applications using only your mind, the Merge also gives you perfect eyesight, infrared vision, and incredibly accurate aim with a gun.

Meanwhile, in the wilds of Afghanistan, Randi Russell encounters an entire village of murdered Afghans - who all have Merge studs in their skulls. As Smith and Russell begin to delve into the circumstances surrounding the Afghans' deaths - and the bizarre fact that they all have Merges weeks before the official on-sale date - they're quickly blocked by someone at the highest level of the military. Is the Merge really as innocuous as Dresner claims? And what secrets is the military hiding about its development?

Smith and Russell are determined to learn the truth. But they may pay for it with their lives...

4.0 out of 5 stars Jon and Randi do the dirty work 27 Sep 2013
By Jon Doe
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Jon Smith and Randi Russell end up working together again on a mission to save lives and defend the USA in this latest Covert One novel. An ageing and ill inventor and industrialist has developed a computer which can be plugged directly into the Human brain and, among other things, determine whether or not someone is lying to you and correct eyesight issues. A military version has been rolled out exclusively for the USA-and the President assigns Jon Smith to determine its effectiveness. He quickly determines it is very effective, indeed-but Marty Zellerbach determines that there is a part of the system that seemingly has no purpose. With Randi Russell having discovered a cave full of severed heads from a village wiped out in Afghanistan, all of them with the implant BEFORE it was made publicly available, Red Flags go up... And it becomes apparent Covert-One is facing obstruction of it's investigation from a very high level inside the US Government.

With even Covert-One forced to stand down by Presidential Order when President Castilla discovers that while Jon Smith is on to something, he has no proof and the interests and money involved make pushing the issue impossible, John and Randi enlist Marty and go lone wolf. When these two and Marty roll their sleeves up and get to work? Anyone who reads the Covert One novels know its best to just lie down and hide.

The chemistry between Jon and Randi almost flies off the page on this one, too, as the Author reminds us what a good match these two are. A fast-moving plot, interesting ideas, colourful characters and a villain who doesn't see what's he's done to reach the level and point he has as evil, rather "necessary" for the supposed betterment of the Human race as a whole? Who is genuinely convinced he's doing the right thing?

Read this one if you like Ludlums own work, it's worth it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a page turner 14 April 2014
By Paul
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought the novel as I have read most if not all in the series. Whilst it retains the main characters it lacks the tension and surprises one expects from the series. I found it disappointing and got the feeling that not too much research or thought went into the story.
