Book Description

4 July 2013

The latest thriller from bestselling author, Andy McDermott. For fans of Tom Clancy and Matthew Reilly.

Adam Gray is the ultimate spy... As the lead agent of the US government's top-secret Persona project, he is its most valuable weapon in the War on Terror. Experimental technology enables him to take on the personality - and memories - of anyone; be it a Russian arms dealer, a high-stakes gambler or a nuclear scientist. Whatever secrets they know, he knows.

But the most dangerous secrets of all... are his own. 

When Adam hunts a terrorist plotting to murder millions, he begins to realise that, although he can delve into the minds of others, his own memories are a mystery. Hidden in his past is the key to a deadly conspiracy - and its masterminds will stop at nothing to conceal their crimes...

More About the Author

Andy McDermott is the bestselling author of the Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase series of adventure thrillers, which have been sold in over 30 countries and 20 languages. His debut novel, The Hunt For Atlantis, was published in the UK in 2008; on its US publication the following year it became his first of several New York Times bestsellers. He is also the author of the explosive spy thriller The Persona Protocol, and the first in a planned series of short stories about celebrity sleuth Leviticus Gold.

His eleventh novel, the Wilde/Chase adventure Kingdom Of Darkness, goes on sale in August 2014, and he is currently working on the next book in the series.

Andy's novels have received critical acclaim for their epic globetrotting scope and non-stop thrills, described as "pulse-racing adventure" (Northern Echo) with action scenes that "explode off the page" (Daily Express), while Andy himself has been called "a new master of the genre" (Le Figaro) and "a writer of rare cinematic talent" (Daily Express).

A former journalist and movie critic, Andy was the editor of respected UK magazines like DVD Review and the iconoclastic film publication Hotdog. He is now a full-time author. Born in Halifax, he now lives in Bournemouth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Andy McDermott,what are you thinking? 24 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I generally love Andy Mcdermott books,they are almost certainly in my top three authors lists,but I'm not too sure where he is going with this?
The story,is basically about a secret US government organisations that has the ability to obtain a persons memory via drugs and electronics,which then can be passed into an agent to recover information ,in these cases concerning terrorism activities
Sounds OK,but,for those that remember,it feels a bit like a modern equivelent of a Joe 90 episode on "speed."
Unlike the Wilde/Chase books Andy writes,the hero this time is a American ex Special forces,typical american hero in physique(yawn!),joined with what is described as a hippy type british girl. The hero obviously,we find out has some issues with having his memory wiped to hide high ranking officers who have done some "very bad things" in the name of "national security." Obviously,all sorts itself and the baddies get what they deserve after lots of chasing shooting and explosions....they're the good bits!
Now,the Wilde and Chase books,are historical/archelogical/adventure/Indiana jones on steroids type and really good fun,Eddie Chase is a Yorkshireman,ex SAS,ageing/balding and with a typical "squaddie" sense of humour,which makes it brilliant for most British readers and are really...especially to me,un-put-downable books,the Persona Protocol,strikes me as being aimed at the American market and although is obviously an experiment at a different subject by Mcdermott (and I don't know if it is the start of a new series) does not seem to flow like his original books,and it doesn't seem to read like it has been as enjoyable to write as his Wilde/Chase books,and is certainly lacking in any sense of humour.

Thoroughly enjoyable with a fast and exile rating car chase as the finale. Would have liked a more definitive conclusion however.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable start to a new series 12 Feb 2014
By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
The Persona Protocol puts the reader into territory that wouldn't feel out of place in a Mission Impossible or James Bond novel or movie. No expense is spared, no gadget or mode of transport unavailable, as our group of characters go about their business of saving the world - in this novel, from terrorists after the ultimate weapon. Fortunately, our heroes have the ultimate device to stop them.

Adam Gray is an American secret. He appears wiped of memories, experiences and personality. They're not required. Instead, Gray is able to take on the identity of anyone he wishes for a full day, thanks to the incredible invention of the protocol.

The Persona Protocol leaps from one outrageous scenario to another, each vying with the one before for sheer audacity and nerve. There's barely time to draw breath before Adam and the others are yet again up to their necks in it. The story, though, is given an extra human touch thanks to the introduction of Bianca Childs, whose job is to look after the medical side of the protocol. As she becomes caught up in the adventure, she takes on much more than that until she is the thriller's greatest source of glamour and humour. Even Adam begins to open up to this exciting young woman. There are lines of dialogue here that made me laugh outloud (McDermott's books always make me do that) and I really enjoyed the interplay between Bianca and Adam.

While I did enjoy the premise of The Persona Protocol, the main let down in the novel for me was the plot. I found it rather dull and, most unfortunately of all, very predictable. I did guess the outcome. Of course, this is a book that has a great deal to compete with - the Eddie and Nina thrillers are among the very best of their genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the business. 1 Sep 2013
By Huge
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Andy McDermott certainly knows how to create great characters, thrills and an evolving plot. Its a great spy thriller with some scientific fiction in the same style as a 007 movie. Yes some of the action was over-the-top but that's how its done. All in all I really enjoyed it.

2.0 out of 5 stars not for fans of the Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase series 14 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wouldn't think it was written by the same author as the Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase series. The characters lacked depth and I lost interest half way through and had to keep going back to it to finish it. With Andy McDermott's other books I haven't been able to put the books down. I hope he will write more with Nina and Eddie.
