Product Description

Review

'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 A thriller certainly, but one that combines so many factual historical references that the reader is left wondering where facts end and fiction begins.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 the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Clocktower is a secret global agency, dedicated to combat international crime, but its headquarters across the world are compromised, many of its agents assassinated. David Vale, based in Jakarta, is one of the few chiefs to survive. On the run for his life, he is in possession of coded clues which hint at the involvement of a ruthless organisation, Immari. Immari have their fingers in many pies, funding a host of scientists and businesses for reasons best known to themselves. Among them is geneticist Kate Warner's research into Jakarta's autistic children. When they kidnap two of the children, Kate has no choice but to go after them. It's not long before Kate and David join what limited resources they have, following the clues that soon become a trail of dead bodies. Meanwhile, scientists in the Antarctica discover a mysterious vessel buried into the ground surface, hundreds of feet below the ice. Attached to it is a submarine that hints at another dark hunt, one that took place decades ago, funded by the Reich.

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.

I admit to having this book for a few months before really getting into it. I read the first few chapters which didn't excite me and started reading other stuff. I started reading it again and then just had to finish it. If you like action, good goodies, caricature baddies, time portals and have a an ability to suspend credulity, then give it a try!

This started off in a pacy, fast manner but then quickly became confusing flitting about all over the place for no reason other than to confuse the reader. The characters and story were thin - Dr Warner would be in therapy for years after what she has endured! & her accomplice has had more cliched escapes than James Bond could ever imagine. After a while i gave up wondering what the Immari corp was up to and I know there's a sequal so the heroes escape. I could not enagage with the story or develop and interest in the characters they are so shallow, and quickly lost interest & then hit the delete button.

Couldn't put this down once I'd started. The story has huge scope and imagination and I can't wait for the next installment. I found it listed under sci-fi, but it's also a fast-paced thriller, with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Great plot and characters.

What a read. Couldn't put this complex fast moving thriller down.
It begins in Antarctica when a Nazi U-boat is seen trapped in an iceberg. We then travel to Jakarta where Dr Kate Warner is researching into autism. Her laboratory is broken into and two children kidnapped; why? We then meet David Vale, a security expert working for Clocktower. This organisation is under attack from Immari.
The police think Kate is involved with the kidnapping and she is put in prison where David rescues her.
Kate and David then investigate the powerful Immari organisation.
No spoilers.

Story: Captivating, compelling and complex thriller.
Characters: Exceptionally interesting, detailed and well developed.
Writing style: Easy to read and the story flowed well.

This thriller is a mixture of fact and fiction. Sometimes its difficult to differentiate between fact and fiction. But this doesn't appear to matter as the reader is absorbed in this gripping thriller.

If you like thrillers then this for you.

Having read the book, I'm a little lost. It's well written, and it's a solid story, yet it didn't grip me and I have no idea why.

I will be reading the second to see where the story goes, and there were parts I really did enjoy, it just seemed to take such a long time to get there. There is a sequence in the book where we travel back in time via a diary that's found and that segment of the story is excellent. This is the element that brings everything together, but the first half of the story just seems to meander along with little direction.

I'm perhaps being a little unfair with only 3 stars, but as I said it didn't captivate me.

I so wanted to like this book, and to an extent I did.

I finished it whilst on holiday but it was one of those books where I just couldn't wait to get it finished to get it over and done with.

It was all too fast paced, nothing seemed to knit together well, and I didn't really care for any of the characters.

I know the author has listened to all the comments from this book and has taken steps to better the writing for the second book, but I don't think I will bother with the next in the series.

The major problem I had was that it was too contrived, everything came to easy to the protagonist and it all got a little too confusing.

What I liked was the idea of the book and the author is actually a good writer, just needs some tweaking which I am sure he has done for the other books in the series.
