The mission revolves around performance enhancing drugs and the big money that will stop at nothing to make them theirs. Any time you've got a lot of money and a lot of power on the line, people will do whatever it takes to grab that piece of the pie. At that point, the performance enhancing drug runner turn into straight-up drug runners with about the same level of ethics.
In a story that starts with simple questions about whether or not a new drug will work and rapidly drops us into a world of Nazi secrets, spontaneous human combustion, and human trafficking, Bickerstaff gives us a tale that never lets up and even introduces an age-old American conspiracy that dates back to World War II.
The beauty of the story is even though Bickerstaff takes Gavin and Zoe through a complete story of drugs, criminals, and greed, he introduces a larger story arc about conspiracies and politics.
All in all, an excellent read and well worth the time.
In this second book in the series Gavin is in the thick of it once again, when his organization asks him to investigate a new steroid drug, which is being developed in one of the universities. Based on sinister research first conducted by scientists of Nazi Germany with the purpose to boost their soldiers’ energy and endurance, the drug has already claimed lives of several people, who were involved either in its testing or distribution. Add a crooked criminal family to this highly compelling plot, a high-level conspiracy dating back to the Cold War and you get yourself a perfect thriller which you won’t be able to put down.
What I also appreciated was new characters that were introduced here, and particularly Zoe. Her army experiences and devotion made her an especially likable and relatable character, and a very nice addition to the series.
A great story, as always with Shawlens series. Highly recommended.
Up next, The Black Fox! Can't wait. Already purchased and added to my reading list.
The author’s writing style is terse and journalistic in nature, which helps keep the pacing brisk, but can sometimes make it difficult in knowing where to place the emphasis. Everything hits you as sort of equally important, with no more time spent dwelling on one plot point than any other. Possibly that’s deliberate, as plots like this do like to keep you guessing.
I loved the concept of the Gavin group that gets pulled together periodically to investigate university research projects that started out with the best of intentions but subsequently went awry. As in illegal, unethical experimentation with billions of dollars at stake, and lives happily sacrificed. It’s a really cool cabal of people to base a series on. With different experts brought in pertinent to the investigation at hand in the given installment in the series of novels. The idea reminded me somewhat of James Rollins’ Sigma Force novels of which I’m a big fan.
This is definitely one of those “you have to be lost before you can be found” novels, so I’d encourage you to keep reading. The excitement builds, the fog eventually lifts, and as the pieces come together and the stakes clarified, the momentum accelerates. It’s good reading as action thrillers go.
