Patrick Lee hooks you from the get-go with a gut-wrenching action sequence in which a motorcade exiting Washington, D.C. is ambushed with deadly force for the purpose of seizing a mysterious artifact that had just been demonstrated to the U.S President. For those of you who (unlike me) have read Patrick Lee's first novel, The Breach, you will soon be re-introduced to the artifact's guardian, Paige Campbell, and realize that it's one of many mind-blowingly high-tech objects called entities that a highly-classified organization known as Tangent has recovered from the Breach -- a mysterious portal to another time or world. But even if you are coming into Ghost Country cold, you'll quickly get the gist of the dilemma Paige faces as her assailants close in on her and the entity: How, in a one minute phone message, can she leave instructions to someone whom she can trust to locate a companion copy of the entity, figure out how to use it, and save Paige and the world from the doomsday scenario that the sitting U.S. President and other high ranking officials are trying to perpetrate?
Enter Travis Chase, Paige's former lover who has renounced his affiliation with Tangent and Paige for a life of quiet obscurity. After locating the companion copy of the entity and figuring out that it has the power to punch open a window 73 years into the future, Travis sets off to rescue Paige and thwart the Government's frightening plot to create a future of unimaginable horror.Read more ›
Ghost Country is Patrick Lee's follow-up to his first novel, The Breach, and utilizes characters and concepts he introduced and developed in his earlier book. Regardless, Ghost Country stands alone well enough. Like The Breach, Ghost Country is more a hard-boiled thriller than a science-fiction or horror story, although the alien technology from the other side of the Breach certainly plays a major part in the unfolding of events. Indeed, during my reading of the novel, I found it moving in a very different direction from what I expected, based on the description of the novel and its first few chapters.Read more ›
"WOW! Double Wow! Starkly original, Ghost Country by Patrick Lee will make Asimov and Heinlein cheer with the angels. The techno-thriller meets Sci-Fi, and the result is mind-blowing. Makes Tom Clancy look like the slowest child in the class." (Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author)
Does not even begin to describe how great of a read this is. A real page turner. You have a espionage, post apocalypse switching back to present time travel, government cover up, secret conspiracy thriller concerning voice to skull technology and the ability of the government to herd people based on frequency wave technology which is already a partial reality, it's all here wrapped up in a ingenious, intense, edge of your seat, what the heck is happening.
Mr. Lee has only written three books that I'm aware of. Hope he writes more.
Scary, thrilling, and as stated in another review, if you've got plans or a lot to do with no time to spare, don't start this one until you can read through and savor it because this is a page turner that when a phone or door bell rings, the dogs got to go out, the kids come home and need help with homework, you're going to really wish you didn't have to set this gem down.
If you begin it at night, in bed - you may be up all night.
This book is intense and shows you probably how our American government really works behind closed doors.
Glad I bought all three.Read more ›
