'I was hooked from the opening chapter. The scope of The Atlantis Gene is both enormous and ambitious. It is also confident and assured' For WinterNights.
'A compelling novel. A thriller certainly, but one that combines so many factual historical references that the reader is left wondering where facts end and fiction begins. With an unerring sense of drama, the tension ramps up in the final part' Best Selling Crime Thrillers. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

What follows is a pageturner of the most frenetic and exhilarating kind as Kate and David become both hunters and prey. We quickly follow them across continents, their chase picking up clues from past and present, including archaeological remains, an old diary, chambers within the deepest mines. Everything suggests that Immari is about to set in motion a near extinction event. Mankind is about to be all but destroyed and the countdown is on and it can be measured in just a few days. Throughout, help and danger meet and confront Kate and David from the least expected sources, supporting their growing fear and belief that they have uncovered a global conspiracy that may be as old as humanity itself.Read more ›
Behind this kidnapping, and indeed behind Kate’s funding, is a highly secret and powerful organisation known as the Immari, whose one aim over a long period of time has been to save mankind. This, however, can only be done by the sacrifice of the many.
Clocktower is a global security organisation which is trying desperately to negate the Immari’s intentions. David Vale, one of Clocktower’s chief agents, narrowly avoids being wiped out in an internationally-organised culling by the Immari. He is then in a desperate race to crack secret codes and rescue the world from the madness of the megalomaniacs at the helm of the Immari. Together with Kate, he takes on the might of the Immari to save the world.
A G Riddle has written a compelling novel. A thriller certainly, but one that combines so many factual historical references that the reader is left wondering where fact ends and fiction begins. With an unerring sense of drama, the author has moulded a cracking plot with outstanding characters in David and Kate. Supporting characters are also first rate and the whole book has a dynamic and magnetic grip on the reader.
The book suffers slightly in the first part with the time and location changes, but eventually the reader is able to follow these almost intuitively.Read more ›

Really good thriller. Not high literature, but very entertaining. The literary equivilent of a good "popcorn" movie.Published 8 days ago by Antony
Better than I expected. There was a nice flow to the story and I read all three books in 4 days!Published 10 days ago by Adele
For me it just felt a bit to James bond. If you want action then this is the book for you, but if you rather a more subtle kind of sci-fi, try something else.Published 13 days ago by Mr Paul Green
Great plot, fast paced, keeping interest through to very end. This is the first book I've read by A G Riddle, complicated in parts, characters interwoven in plot. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Phil Conibere
What a read. Couldn't put this complex fast moving thriller down.

I enjoyed the book, but I have to admit that at times I had to keep going back pages to keep up with what characters were doing what and their relationship with each other. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Snowline
