Conspiracy theory at its best,
This review is from: Ezekiel One (Paperback)
This book is conspiracy theory at its best. Danger and terror lie around every corner, giving the novel a strong feeling of paranoia. The quick pace of action keeps things going as the author develops his ideas about Planet X. They're pretty strange.
I read Lloyd's first book "Dark Star" a few years ago. He's got some great ideas, but I found Dark Star a tough read in places. "Ezekiel One" is a lot more entertaining, and full of conspiracy ideas about NASA and the government. I liked the characters in it, especially the Russian billionaire who runs the newspaper. The details about some of the places in the book, like Paris, or the parliament building in London, are good too - it feels like you're really there.
The ending was unexpected - it goes right off the deep-end in the last couple of chapters. But I won't spoil it for you! Let's just say it looks like there's room for a sequel or two. Maybe even a movie?
