Alan Ross's "Effected Intent" is a thriller on two fronts - both the online world and the frightening realm of bioterrorism. The story unfolds with an unlikely cybersleuth uncovering and attempting to stop a bioterrorism plot. Some authors rely on contrived technologies to advance the plot but Ross sticks to what's actually possible, giving the book a chilling feel of authenticity.

One word of caution to the reader - don't start this unless you have a few hours free because you won't want to put it down.

Effected Intent is a frighteningly believable bioterrorism novel. Bill and Steve are complex characters with colorful backgrounds. As Ross unfolds the science with clear details that engage the reader, the emotional storyline also develops. This is definitely a strong new writer with a ton of potential! I look forward to more by this author.

Part of this is based on the fact that the character of `Bill' is an inmate, working in an IT position, and uses his hacking skills to unravel the bio-terrorists plot. Original, yet the author made it very convincing to believe it was possible. (I know it is). Very easy to read and follow along. I would hope to see other books based on the same guy. I liked the bit of office romance with a twist.

A nice mix of bio-terrorism and cyber thriller.

There is something strange about the ratings for this book, reading them you would think people are writing about totally different books. When I bought the book the ratings were excellent, but now when I go back to see why on earth I ever got it, I find that in the meantime several one-star ratings have appeared, most of which I totally agree with.
Already chapter 1 had me wondering, it was a totally uninteresting account of an office day, but then I was hooked by the last sentence - the main charachter was in fact a prison inmate - and I went on, thinking things would develop from there. But they never did - it was followed by equally boring detailed accounts of chemistry experiments, fishing trips, teenage partying and dating and other events that seemed totally unrelated and irrelevant.
Maybe it all somehow is tied together in the end, but when the story still hadn't taken off att 28% I gave it up.
The editing was also very bad with grammatical errors and typos.

The premise of this book is a pretty good one: bioterrorism coming from a disenfranchised segment of our own population.

Unfortunately, that's as good as it gets. The books randomly wanders backward in time. The "hero" of the book is primarily stuck emotionally as a teenager. He calls the prison office manager mom, and he talks and thinks about girls like a chaste fifteen-year-old (except during the flashbacks).

The point of view changes from person to person, and without notice. Everyone's thoughts, including a chemist and high-level alphabet agency personnel, are immature and remarkably random. There's gratuitous sex, and by that I mean that a main character picks up a girl in a strip joint and abuses her, badly. It's not too graphic, but it has nothing to do with the story, except to make it more obvious that the character's a bad guy. I like sex in my books, but this was just totally unnecessary to the plot, and the scenes felt like afterthoughts. Next time, author? Just leave them out unless they serve a purpose.

The chemist is a Vietnam veteran, and his first experience with The Wall is poignant and touching and probably the best part of the entire book.

The case is solved, singlehandedly, by the "hero," who happens upon boxes full of current network information for a major chemical company. Yeah, because some major American corporation is going to just print out usernames and passwords, toss the papers into boxes and send them to the recycler. Said recycler just happens to be a prisoner who mines all that information to snoop on the company's network and outfox everybody, including a CIA agent. I suspended my disbelief for the duration of the book, because many things were implausible, even to my non-secret-agent knowledge.

I almost bailed at the end of the ridiculous first chapter where (Spoiler Alert) a prisoner with a life sentence is working as a programer on the prison's payroll system! Really?

The prose and pacing is unbalanced in the sense that much of the background, color, or descriptive material detracts from rather than adds to the story. Here is an example: "He never did anything on the computer while he ate, since he despised crumbs in his keyboard."

Several typos are noted, for example "...it would be the usual--unning the kids around..." (@location 246).

Having reached the ten percent mark, I can take no more.

M Simpson nailed this one right on the head. This was a very good book with a well thought out story and great character development. It is worthy of a five star rating if you can get past the lack of editing. Some instances actually stopped my reading dead and caused me to go back and make sure that I did not read something incorrectly.

I got this book for free. If Mr.Ross promises to have his next work well edited I will be more than happy to pay for it. I am looking forward to more.
