Praise for Michael Wallace

"Wallace's writing is brilliant and engrossing." - Crimespree Magazine

"A dashing tale of suspense, religion, and intrigue." - SFFWorld, SciFi, Fantasy and Horror

"Wallace takes a page from Stephen King, using descriptions of violence strong enough to upset in a way violence should, but leaving enough unsaid to allow imagination to fill in the gaps (or not)." -Laura Compton, AML

"Deeply engrossing! Michael Wallace delivers the thinking man's thriller...." Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Live to Tell

I've trekked across the Sahara on a camel, ridden an elephant through a tiger preserve in Southeast Asia, eaten fried guinea pig, and been licked on the head by a skunk. In a previous stage of life I programmed nuclear war simulations, smuggled refugees out of a war zone, and milked cobras for their venom. I speak Spanish and French and grew up in a religious community in the desert.

I first became aware of Locked In Syndrome (LIS) through Jean-Dominique Bauby's memoir , The Diving Bell and the Butterfly . I can't imagine anything more horrible than to have a fully functioning mind imprisoned in a paralyzed body with no way to communicate.

Michael Wallace has constructed a storyline in his series, Devil's Deep , that takes the terror and helplessness to another level. As soon as I finished reading The Devil's Deep which is the first book in the series, I immediately followed it with The Devil's Peak (Devil's Deep) .

What could be more terrifying than LIS? It's being a victim of LIS and being at the mercy of sadistic individuals who want to make sure that others never realize that one is trying to communicate.

I have read a few other thrillers by Michael Wallace and really like the fact that he can sustain suspense in very different story lines. His premise in this series takes a very real physical terror and combines it with evil plotting to provide a very good reading experience.

I have read Michael Wallace's other books, including "The Devil's Deep", the first of this series, and thought they were great. So, I am pleased to let you know "The Devil's Peak" is just as good. Walter Fitzroy is "trapped in the living prison of his own paralyzed body". Chapter two, which introduces Walter and his "girlfriend" is, well, terrifying might be too strong a description, but it certainly describes what it might be like to be in that situation. My husband asked me why I was squirming in my seat. Michael certainly did an amazing job of making me feel a little of what it must be like to be able to see, hear, and feel everything going on around you, but not be able to do or say anything in response.
The story is suspenseful and never lagged. I hated to put my Kindle down. I couldn't wait to get back to the story.
I highly recommend the book. I have come to know Michael Wallace as an excellent author. I will certainly purchase any of his future writings.

An excellent follow up novel for The Devil's Deep, The Devil's Peak follows the same two charactors on a new and just as exciting mission. Definitely well worth the price but, they need to be read in order to understand where the story started.

My review is on the book The Devil's Peak by Michael Wallace. I recently reviewed the fist book in this series, I was so caught up in the locked-in concept that I had to buy the second book. My great-grandfather, my grandmother, my uncle, and my mom all had Alzheimer's. I use to work at the nursing homes here in Broken Bow and I have been fascinated with the thought of; were they still in there somewhere. I am a strong Christian and so were my family. I know we are first a spirit, we have a mind and emotions, and we live in a body, so what happens when the body is unable to function? Is the mind still there? What about the spirit? If you are born again your spirit is still alive, where does it go, what happens to it? It's an intriguing concept and I loved the way Michael handled it. This is not a Christan fiction book but it is amazing.

Walter Fitzroy is supposedly in a Permanent Vegetative State, at least that is his diagnosis. He's in a mental heath facility, actually suffering from the locked-in syndrome, unable to communicate to anyone but one other patient, who loves to torture him.

Darlene Trost is a psychopath. She was once in the military and can read Walter's Morse code eye movements. Jealous of her relationship with Walter, she hides his ability from everyone. If necessary she will kill to protect there relationship.The staff all think it's cute; Darlene and her boyfriend; kind of like an invisible friend. They don't see the abuse that she inflict on him day by day.

Wes Pilson and Becca Gull (Book one) come to Vanderzee Medical Clinic to test a woman who her family feel might be helped by the Locked-in Syndrome Foundation. Dr. Li runs the tests and they are all disappointed when there was no reaction to the tests.

I highly recommend The Devil's Deep! Michael Wallace has outwritten his wonderful book The Devil's Deep! After reading the first in the series, as well as many of his other books, I never had a question of whether to purchase this book or not. But I was surprised just how great it was to be back with characters I knew from his first book, and how fast I got sucked into the story and the characters he's created. His intricate story line was action packed, and at times I found myself reading faster and holding my breath trying to keep up with the story! I was sure I knew how the story would go after the first few chapters - wrong! Mr. Wallace was able to keep me guessing and constantly on my toes. It was torture to stop reading to do things like, oh, go to work, eat, etc. I wanted to sit and not stop reading until I got to the last word, and then I wanted still more. It felt so warm and welcome to have familiar characters, and watching the characters grow and change (both for good and bad) was incredible. One of the new characters, Walter, surprised me at the end by how much he'd changed. Only Mr. Wallace could put together such a non-stop action story with the locked-in theme so well written and interconnected. His research and understanding of the problems experienced by those locked in was so well and compassionately done, while still keeping me on my toes with all the people around Walter. I was rooting for him like I did for Davis in The Devil's Deep. I just hope there is a real-life organization out there finding those locked-in, as written in the books. Thank you for a wonderful book, Mr. Wallace. Keep writing!
