From the Back Cover

The anomaly called the Breach is the government’s most carefully guarded secret.

But there is another secret even less known . . . and far more terrifying.

As the U.S. President addresses the nation fromthe Oval Office, a missile screams toward the White House. In a lightning flash, the Chief Executive is dead, his mansion in ruins, and two cryptic words are the only clue to the assassins’ motives: “See Scalar.”

Now Travis Chase of the covert agency Tangent—caretakers of the Breach and all its grim wonders—along with partner and lover Paige Campbell and technology expert Bethany Stewart, have only twenty-four hours to unearth a decades-old mystery once spoken of in terrified whispers by the long since silenced. But their breakneck race cross-country—and back through time and malleable memory—is calling the total destructive might of a shadow government down upon them. For Travis Chase has a dark destiny he cannot be allowed to fulfill . . .

This is the much-awaited completion to Lee's "Breach" trilogy. Don't even think about buying it until you've read the first two, because there isn't a lot of explanation and you'll be pretty much lost.

Travis and Paige are back and once again, trying to react to an unforeseen series of catastrophes. As with the second book, they're joined by computer-whiz Bethany, but this time she's pretty much just along for the ride. It's hard to describe this book without giving too much away, but suffice to say, besides the usual array of baffling and dangerous artifacts, we also have to deal with some strange time travel.

On the plus side, there's plenty of action, and it's great to finally have the Breach explained. On the minus side, this is by far the weakest of the three books, and most unsatisfying. In several ways, I was reminded of the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey". Compelling, but at the end you can't help but go, "huh?", at least a bit.

If you've read the first two, you have to read this one. Even though the finale could have been a bit better, the overall trilogy is some of the best action/sci-fi to come along in years.

I've been a big fan of Patrick Lee's "Breach" stories since stumbling across "The Breach" a few years ago. I thought that the stories were pretty inventive, the characters enjoyable and overall just a great entry into the techno-thriller genre.

"Deep Sky" is the final book in the trilogy, and while I enjoyed it, I feel it's a bit tepid when compared with the earlier novels. Travis Chase is back in this third installment, and "Deep Sky" starts off with a bang as we discover that an ordinary suburban house hides a deadly weapon which is soon used in an attack on Washington and the President.

Soon, Travis Chase, Paige Campbell and everyone at Tangent find themselves targeted by the same people who attacked the White House, and the clock is ticking towards another doomsday as they scamble to find out who and why someone is taking out everyone associated with The Breach. Patrick Lee once again populates his novels with the cool Breach "technology" that are a trademark of these stories. "The Tap" is not quite as fun as the "Whisper", but is still kind of cool.

I think the biggest problem with "Deep Sky" is that it follows the excellent "Ghost Country" which was right on the heels of un-put-downable "The Breach", two of the most exciting novels in recent years. And while "Deep Sky" does a nice job of wrapping up the series, it doesn't manage to retain the pace it set in the earlier novels.

Overall this was a great series and I would highly recommend you pick up all three tales. If you're a fan of sci-fi thriller there is plenty here to enjoy.

This is the third in the three part "Breach" trilogy, and you should purchase all three:

-- if you love science fiction
-- if you love strong characters, like Travis Chase
-- if you love a puzzle, a series of unexplained incidents
-- if you like internal logic, where things do not just "happen"

This book finishes the story of Travis Chase, drawn into the top secret government project to control the Breach, an opening to another dimension, a conduit for strange items that drop through, an occasion for global conspiracies that seem to exist in part because of Travis -- not just to him.

The story telling is sharp. The author creates difficult situations, but does not break the train of logic... requiring solutions that are strong, credible, and well devised.

I really enjoyed all three books.

I enjoyed DEEP SKY. It was fast paced, exciting and full of a few more quirky "entities"!

If you enjoyed the first two books in the series, The Breach and Ghost Country, I'm sure you'll like DEEP SKY, too. Moderate amounts of violence (nothing graphic), minimal profanity and believable--if not scientifically explainable--"entities."

I won't spoil things for you with details, but the plot is full of twists and turns that keep you guessing right up to the end.

The conclusion is reasonably logical from a scientific standpoint. All the plot "holes" one might conceive of are covered somewhere in the story, so it all comes together in the end.

An interesting thing, I thought, was the moral question which the book poses at the end. One of those, hypothetical "if you could go back in time..." type questions. It explains the twin messages sent through the Breach by Travis and Paige in the earlier stories (but recapped here in the early pages of DEEP SKY). Personally, I'd follow Paiges advice to prevent, by any means necessary, Travis from doing what it is he might do! I'll leave it at that, so as not to spoil anything for you.

I'd give FOUR STARS to DEEP SKY. An exciting and thought provoking end for the BREACH trilogy from Patrick Lee.

,.

The action begins in Deep Sky on the first page and hooks the reader instantly. This story is riveting. The suspense is immediate and continual. Deep Sky is a must read for both science fiction fans and those who love a good mystery.

Patrick Lee, the author of Breach and Ghost Country, scores again with the third in the Travis Chase trilogy. The story begins with a missile fired at the West Wing, and includes an assault against Border Town, the central stronghold of Tangent, the international organization charged with the super secret management of Breach.

What is this sudden violence about? The story begins with an Air Force officer firing a missile at the White House in an attempt to kill the President of the United States - why? Then Tangent gets involved, asks questions and is immediately attacked - Why? Travis is given a message about a coming doom and has no idea as to what the message or the threat is about. Then he obtains clues as to a threat deadline without any concept of the nature of the menace. Who is the enemy? Why the attacks and threats? What does the unknown enemy want?

The action is non stop with several ambushes, bombings, assaults, several assignations and some crafty sabotage. Many times during the story the chances of the Tangent team appear bleak as they fight against overwhelming odds. Technological marvels lead to numerous plot twists and scenes reversals.

The authors imagination provides us with many fictional tools. Some of these inventive devices are nearly possible, reminding me of great science fiction of the past which gave us such devices as lasers, and helped us dream about trips to the moon and beyond.

One invention, TAP, is especially clever.
