Editorial Reviews


"THE LIFE ENGINE is a tremendous debut novel. The
twists and turns were riveting ... couldn't put it down. Rick
Baker is a hot new talent in the publishing world."
                                                        Stephen Frey
                                                        New York Times Best-Selling Author

Anakin is a terrifically evil antagonist, and his scenes are chillingly
well-rendered. I loved the scenes in the Amazon ... lush,
mysterious, atmospheric ... an intellectual, challenging book, a
book with ideas in it.
                                                       Charles Salzberg
                                                       Author of the Swann Detective Series

"Baker creates an indelible villain to pit against the scientist:
Sebastian, who hopes the world will fall into chaos even as
April fights to save it. Action fans will be sated... engaging
storyline and alluring protagonists."
                                                        Kirkus Reviews

"A pulse-pounding and thought-provoking thriller. The Life
Engine is a political novel without hitting you over the head
with it. It touches on big issues while still being heavily laced
with action. It's a fairly complex novel, with many characters
and subplots, but it still manages to hold together with a brisk
pace. Baker clearly has a passion for his subject and his characters.
A good addition to the growing eco-thriller genre."
                                                        SPR Reviews

The Life Engine is a real thought-provoking thriller. It gets
your blood pumping from the first page. Kudos to author Rick
Baker and thanks for a great read.
                                                        Jeffrey Knight
                                                        Toronto Book Club

"THE LIFE ENGINE offers the perfect blend of action, intrigue,
suspense and character transformation--everything I
like to see in a well-told story."
                                                        Kevin Miller

"This book is a terrific read. It fits the new sub-genre of enviro-thrillers.
There's much to ponder. It's an intrigue-laced thriller.
The environmental concerns and social justice issues - climate
change, ocean dumping, big pharma, small farmers, seeds, and
land use - add depth and urgency that make it a compelling
                                                         Campbell Wood
