Editorial Reviews


The Chimera Seed can best be described as a taut, energetic thriller. From its opening pages where you learn that a famed, visionary scientist has died and left his son, Dr. Michael Tiernan, a huge inheritance, the story rolls along and gathers speed like a snowball starting an avalanche down a mountainside. Matthew Tully is a writer skilled at developing suspense...Unquestionably, the fast pace of The Chimera Seed is hypnotic...This book is a must read for those seeking an extremely fast paced story of espionage, intrigue, murder, and at times, deliberately imposed physical pain. The main characters are well developed, showing both their self-interest and also their redeeming humanity. Matthew Tully's tale displays real ingenuity with fascinating twists and turns. I will personally await his other stories. Dan Brown, make room for Matthew Tully. --Regis Schilken,

Incredible...I highly recommend The Chimera Seed. It forces the reader to think about how progress can be both good and bad. The reader will experience internal ethical and moral debates about how much control humans should have in changing the future. This book will definitely produce heated and thought-provoking discussions. --Leslie Granier, Armchair

Remember Michael Crichton's The Terminal Man? A bit of mind-bending science mixed with some seriously intense scenes of blood and guts and horror? It worked like a charm for Mr. Crichton and it works for Mr. Tully's The Chimera Seed.
Michael Tiernan, the bourbon-swigging CEO of Oisín Pharmceuticals, discovers after his father's death that Tiernan the Elder had stumbled onto an amazing little find while researching resveratrol, the compound in grapes thought to have strong anti-oxidant properties --a purplish concoction named Dionysinol that doesn't only stop aging, it reverses it. And is a powerful aphrodisiac. Talk about a Viagra effect.
Tiernan the Younger wants to sell Dionysinol and make a gazillion dollars. Tiernan the Elder's former partner, Ivan Falters, wants to destroy it. And everyone else involved in the fracas wants to either drink it, steal it, or use it for their own devious ends.
Ladies, if you've never read a science-y suspense thriller, this is the place to start. Two of the characters, Lori Adams and Mary McKenna, are the most interesting gals I've seen in popular fiction for a while. They are intelligent and polite and pretty and gracious and will smile while sewing your mouth shut. Or torching a gentleman's junk off. Or cutting their own legs to fake a miscarriage on the spur of the moment. Whoa.
Verdict? Mr. Tully's writing puts me in mind of Michael Crichton: a little, but not too much, science, memorable characters, and a plot that trots along at a nice pace. An excellent addition to the freaky science novel genre. And did I mention there will be a sequel? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
