Product Description

Review

Audacious and terrifying-- and uncannily believable. --(Lee Child )

From the Back Cover

Thirty years ago, in a facility buried beneath a vast Wyoming emptiness, an experiment gone awry accidentally opened a door.

It is the world's best-kept secret—and its most terrifying.

Trying to regain his life in the Alaskan wilds, ex-con/ex-cop Travis Chase stumbles upon an impossible scene: a crashed 747 passenger jet filled with the murdered dead, including the wife of the President of the United States. Though a nightmare of monumental proportions, it pales before the terror to come, as Chase is dragged into a battle for the future that revolves around an amazing artifact.

Allied with a beautiful covert operative whose life he saved, Chase must now play the role he's been destined for—a pawn of incomprehensible forces or humankind's final hope—as the race toward Apocalypse begins in earnest.

Because something is loose in the world.

And doomsday is not only possible . . . it is inevitable.

Patrick lee has taken every sci-fi cliche in the book, added a hero who has the word 'indestructable' through him like a stick of rock, spiced it all up with an intellectual love interest and thrown it all together to produce a complete piece of hokum. I couldn't believe any of the plot, the action was over the top and I read it all in just over a day. The ending is very clever and will fool everyone. Leave your brain behind and read it. What reading is all about - escapist fun.

This sci fi / 'near future' thriller is a wickedly good read and I was absolutely thrilled to discover that it is the first of a trilogy and that the two following books are readily available. The acid test of a good writer is that they are capable of writing about the implausible while making it sound totally believeable. Not that many writers have the skill to pull this off but Patrick Lee has it. Another plus is that the book is so easy to get into. From the first few words you're off and into a fast paced, page turning, totally escapist yarn. And it keeps you guessing all the way through. It took me completely by surprise a couple of times. LOVED this book and I can't wait for the other two books to arrive so that I can find out what happens next!

Brilliant first part of Patrick Lee's Sci-Fi trilogy starring Travis Chase very much like Lee Child's Jack Reacher on steroids. If you start with this you must go on to Ghost Country then Deep Sky you'll find that you can't wait for the next instalment it's so addictive.

This is how properly enjoyable nonsense should be written. The Breach is a simple entertainment centred on a desperate and sometimes vicious search for a very desirable McGuffin. Step past the third page, suspend your disbelief (highly advisable), and you’re right in the thick of the action. It’s great stuff.

Travis Chase is a man escaping his past and attempting to decide his future while trekking through the wilds of Alaska. Just several hours away from his vehicle he stumbles across a major mystery which sends the story shooting into high gear. Torture, gunplay and weird unearthly objects pepper the plot, not to mention undocumented government agencies operating secretly out of deep underground bases.

The pace never flags and despite the odd over-ridiculous occurrence – a shootout in Zurich springs to mind - this novel had me captivated from the beginning. It’s a happy mixture of science fiction and Bourne.

I greatly look forward to reading the next two Travis Chase adventures.

This has been on my watch list for some time now and I was both grateful and delighted that my friend Judy sent the trilogy all the way from the US.

A hard book to describe and review, it's a fast paced thriller with a strong SF theme running throughout. But it is also a bit bonkers and you really have to suspend belief as the author throws all sorts of weird ideas and concepts into the mix. In essence there is a rip through to `somewhere else' through which artefacts with a range of abilities are dropped through. The good guys are protecting them for the good of mankind and the bad guys want them for different reasons. Although the concepts here are over the top, they are also inventive and there are some great ideas behind them - it's nonsense but great fun and provided you approach the book with the right mind-set this is hugely enjoyable.

Outrageous but nevertheless enjoyable story telling. First book of a trilogy (you could get away with only reading the first book) which comes to a reasonably satisfactory if very convoluted conclusion. The plot, over the three books, just about hangs together - fast paced fun if you don't take any of it remotely seriously and are able to cope with a ridiculous death toll.

I love bit of sci-fi and Patrick Lee has taken it to another level and then some.
But whereas it could get too techy he manages to stay the right side of going all nuclear physics on us. He keeps it simplistic and relies on the readers imagination which he assists with a pacey righting style.
I read the book in no time and found it thoroughly entertaining.
Synopsis; Chap out in the tundra wilderness on a mission to just get away from the grind finds a downed plane (a big one). But there is no rescue parties and his tentative investigation leads him down a path you WILL not believe.
I am not saying anymore. Its cleverly constructed throughout.
Suspend belief and enjoy.

Quirky little book, very easy to pick up and get into.
I was looking for something to get into during a wait for the next Scott Sigler novel and gave this a try.
I wasn't dissappointed!
Drags you into the story kicking and screaming and doesn't let you go.
I wasn't expecting the ending but that's a good thing I guess!
Can't wait to dive into the next book!
