What a combination of mystery, suspense, and unspeakable horror. I loved it!' (R.L. Stine) 'Partly mythical read, part thriller this pacy tale is a page turner guaranteed to keep you up late' (Sun)" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book was obviously written with an eye to the movie rights.
codgerelle
The characters are damaged and believable, and although the villain sometimes seems a bit fantastical, it’s nothing that detracts from the book.
Matthew Scott Baker
The characters, setting, and plot were all detailed perfectly for the story, and it kept me entertained nonstop.

Format: Hardcover
This is the third Crawford novel featuring Ethan Warner continuing the trend of setting up a plot that is outside of the normal and involving him in scenarios that enter into the paranormal. Warner is summoned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to help with the investigation of a double murder of a woman and her daughter. Within moments of arriving at the scene with his partner Nicola Lopez, Ethan is telephoned by the woman's husband who tells him that he did not commit the murders, but he himself will be killed within 24 hours, knows the murderer who is not yet aware that he will kill, and predicts various events that will occur during the 24 hour period.
The opening throws Ethan and Nicola into an investigation that involves the Bermuda Triangle, and the mysteries surrounding it, a huge undersea installation first built by the military and taken over by a private company and a logically developed and explained method of seeing into the near future. Crawford has a knack for grabbing the reader and drawing him or her into the book, explaining the possible science behind developments portrayed in easy to understand terms without making these events explained away by glossing over them.
High adventure very well done with out of the ordinary plots continues to be Crawford's forte and he guarantees sleepless nights for the reader engrossed in his book.

'Apocalypse' is a vast improvement on Crawford's two previous Ethan Warner novels. This story was fast-paced, intelligent and informative, while still being comprehensible. I'm no science major, nor do I have any knowledge of physics but I managed to keep pace with the story line's complex information. I was glad to finally get some more information on Joanna, and the small cliff-hanger at the end set up for what I'm hoping to be another exciting action-packed thriller mystery.

Format: Paperback
If you're in the mood for action and adventure featuring a team that is almost superhuman in their abilities and skills then this is the book for you! Although this is the third in a series featuring ex Marine and former journalist Ethan Warner and his partner, Nicola Lopez, the novel stands alone as a science fiction suspense thriller that deals with topics ranging from black holes to foretelling the future.

The Defense Intelligence Agency whisks bail-bondsmen Ethan and Nicola from Chicago to a house in Coral Gables, Florida, to the Bahamas, to the Dominican Republic, to super secret high clearance facilities, to a hidden research center on the ocean floor. Who or what are they pursuing? A maniacal billionaire who thinks he has found the way to control time - world famous philanthropist Joaquin Abell who has a diabolical scheme to bend his ability to see into the future into something that may not exactly be in the best interests of mankind.

While they survive incredible predicaments and perils, you'll have to use all of your ability to suspend disbelief as Ethan and Nicola try to save the world! Many action sequences, brain twisting scientific explanations (I can't speak at all about the physics involved here with any degree of authority), and amazing skills will keep the reader turning the pages as quickly as possible to get to the end of this adventure.

Thank you to NetGalley and Touchstone for the e-book ARC to review.

Format: Hardcover
Apocalypse by Dean Crawford is a recommended action adventure thriller with science fiction overtones.

This is the third book by Crawford to feature private investigators Ethan Warner and Nicola Lopez. They are called in to look at the murder of scientist Charles Purcell's family in Miami. Purcell, who was spotted leaving the scene, is the main suspect, but it is clear that more is going on than a case of deadly domestic violence. Purcell contacts the police and tells them that he himself will be killed in less than 24 hours. He then tells the police to analyze the bullets found in the house for a compound known as Rubidium-82. After that they are to contact Ethan Warner.

Charles Purcell is a physicist who worked for fifteen years at NASA. The central focus of his work was the study of time. Purcell is an expert on the nature of time and had recently been working for wealthy philanthropist, Joaquin Abell. Additionally, a plane goes down in the Bermuda Triangle that seemingly ties into the case. As Warner and Lopez investigate, Purcell leaves them clues to follow in a race against time to solve the case while more and more dark deeds are being uncovered and leading them to some fantastic conclusions and an ultimate final scene.

Apocalypse does provide some thrilling action scenes and several twists and turns along the way. Crawford does a credible job with the writing too. While he basically keeps the action moving at a brisk pace, there are a few slowdowns in the plot development. I haven't read the first two books in this series and had no problem following this book. In the end it was some of the plot points and the one-note villain that made Apocalypse a less than perfect thriller for me. This one is an airplane book - a great way to pass the time but you won't regret leaving it if you should happen to lose it at the airport.
