If you have t read any of the Extinction Cycle books you're missing out. Start out with Extinction Horizon by Nicholas Sansbury Smith!
As a Vietnam veteran, Lt. Brett was an interesting and tragic figure to me. He loyally carried out what he thought were lawful orders and was rewarded with a life of hell. I also could relate to Nick Womack, a veteran who became a freelancer, when “he couldn’t shake the horrors of that place.” I, too, think about Vietnam every day.
The author also provides more information on that wretched individual, Captain / Major Rick Gibson. One of his statements, “The survival of the many requires the sacrifice of a few” reminded me of the quote by Spock on Star Trek, “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” Another nice touch by the author is when one of the team going in to capture the creature that was once Lt. Brett makes the observation that “It’s like we’re on the Nostromo…the spaceship from Alien.”
The efforts of reporter Jimmy Linh to do a story on the White Ghost (Lt. Brett) who had been killing Vietnamese villagers for 12 years was riveting.
Two criticisms: A minor one is the use of the security designation “EYES ONLY CLASSIFIED.” No such security classification exists in the U.S. intelligence community. A major criticism is the presence of a vast CIA underground complex only 15 kilometers from Hanoi. There mere existence of such a facility during and after the war strains credulity.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novella and plan to explore other works by Tom Abrahams. If you have not yet read any of the Extinction Cycle books, I recommend that you start with Extinction Horizon by Nicholas Sansbury Smith and then read this novella.
Nicholas Sansbury Smith's 'Extinction Cycle' begins with the fate of a single Marine. The product of devastatingly failed attempt to create a sort of "super soldier" was left but not forgotten in the jungles of Vietnam. This story tells the tale of what really happened to Lieutenant Trevor Brett and what was eventually unleashed upon the world.
Tom Abrahams writes a fantastic tale to compliment the original series in epic style! His words blend seamlessly with the incomparable 'Extinction Cycle' series. A perfect companion piece to the original story. Exceptionally well done!
