As always, the science is frighteningly realistic and leaves you wondering just where reality stops and the author's imagination takes over. Resourceful heroes, feisty heroines and a plot just complex enough to keep you thinking and wondering, without leaving you behind. A very enjoyable read.
That in itself would be worthy of a bestseller, but he goes further. His mix of fact, myth and possibility rarely strains the bounds of credibility. He can make you believe because his interpretation of a combination of events which could have created the myth are quite feasible. And beyond that, in The Roswell Conspiracy, he also demonstrates just how the shell which surrounds present day civilization is built, and which is nothing like as substantial as the steel egg in which we fondly believe that nothing can really interfere with our daily existence. In actuality, we are living inside something as fragile as a soap bubble; a computer controlled, just in time machine where one prick could set back the Western world to the Victorian era.
Our hero, Tyler Locke, once more takes us across the globe finding clues and evidence with relative ease and it is this, without too many meandering sub-plots that has the reader continually turning pages and although some of the facts within this story are pretty well known, it's the twist on the Roswell Incident itself that I didn't quite see coming - so well done Mr Morrison! Although I hasten to add that you could have extended it just a tad more - but really, I'm quibbling!
Certainly if you want an entertaining and easy read, you'll go a long way to better the story telling that you'll find within these pages.
Recommended for reading when you have a few hours to spare - rather than wasting it on most of the dross on TV and that's for sure!
Suspend your disbelief as Tyler, Grant and some new additions zoom across the globe (and out of it!) in search of some answers to the Roswell mystery.
Great action, humour and an interesting take on what happened at Roswell all combine for a terrific thriller.
Boyd is up there with James Rollins, Scott Mariani, Matthew Reilly and Andy McDermott for pure fun, adventure and escapism.
Happily this didn't disappoint. It is a big-action blockbuster of a book, charging from action sequence to action sequence with explosions, shoot-outs and car chases galore.
The main character of Tyler Locke is the typical rich, good-looking, smart action hero you'd expect of such an adventure. His comic-relief sick-kick is similarly good-looking and smart apparently. Plus they both have military training making the plot points a bit more plausible.
But lets face it, this isn't a novel for believability or accuracy. The basic outline of the Roswell event, Easter Island and ancient Peru are taken and the plot is tagged along them taking what is needed for the plot and leaving what isn't. It's pure escapism in a book. You don't need to know anything or even really think to enjoy this novel.
The female characters are happily more than two dimensional and this did endear this story to me somewhat, there was a bit of depth and backstory behind the rollercoaster of action.
I would recommend this but only if you are looking for something light and enjoyable. I enjoyed it immensely and will definitely be reading more books by Boyd Morrison.
