Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is great to read a well-written thriller with compelling heroes and villains, and genuinely surprising plot twists. But add to that the fascinating topic of genetic research, and the morally charged fight to cure aging, and the result is a truly outstanding book. I became a fan of Kira Peikoff's writing when I read Living Proof, and I am an even more enthusiastic fan now. I eagerly await the release of her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for lovers of freedom and individual rights, July 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rooseveltcare (Kindle Edition)
This is a wonderful and inspiring book, which makes a compelling case for freedom, capitalism and the self-reliant society. I recommend it to anyone concerned about the rise of statism, and/or interested in rescuing America from its current decline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling and Delightful, May 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Match (Kindle Edition)
This is a thrilling and delightful story. I knew nothing about the plot in advance of reading this story, and that is exactly how I would have wanted it; the story takes some unexpected turns and I am glad that I did not see them coming.

I had not read any other works by Quent Cordair prior to "The Match", but I am now a fan and immediately purchased "Lunch Break", a collection of more short stories which I eagerly anticipate reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, entertaining and impossible to put down, March 3, 2012
This review is from: Living Proof (Hardcover)
This story is extraordinarily engaging and compelling. It takes an issue (embryonic stem cell research & treatments) that is often the subject of theoretical political debate, and brings the issue to life with a dramatic plot that expands in detail on the dictatorial government actions that would follow in practice from a formal, legal codification of the principle that life begins at conception. The political system of the year 2027 is a kind of theocratic fascism, in which the events of the plot unfold.

One sees the senseless persecution of characters who are subject to the cruel oppression of government agencies such as the Department of Embryo Protection (DEP) and the Department of Embryo and Fetus Protection (DEFP). The reader becomes enraged upon seeing the blind fanaticism of the devout government agents who act to protect embryos -- five day old clusters of undifferentiated cells that merely have the *potential* to become people -- at the expense of threatening to destroy the lives of *actual* people such as the heroine, Arianna Drake, who desperately fights to save her own life as the villainous Agent Dopp of the DEP fights with equal fervor to prevent her from doing so.

Ms. Peikoff shows us, through the logical unfolding of events, the deadly senselessness of an irrational mystic creed imposed by force on man, who by his nature must depend on reason to survive. She also shows us an inspiring picture of the heroism and unyielding persuit of values that rational men (and women) are capable of. And she does this while telling a damn good story with a well integrated plot and interesting characters. I'm now a Kira Peikoff fan and I can't wait to read her next book.
