"Impressively well written, Without Limits is a compelling action/adventure thriller of a read from beginning to end -- and clearly establishes author Dustin Grinnell as an imaginative storyteller of the first order." - Midwest Book Review
"A well-researched thriller with taut and gripping tension. The story flows smoothly with many threads, keeping the reader guessing through to a brilliant and innovative climax. An eye-opener in every way, a five-star rating." - Deepak Menon, Readers' Favorite
"A tense, complicated tale about characters with competing agendas. A great read with a story that keeps moving, and characters you can care about." - Lis Carey's Library
"An interesting choice of subject matter so that the effort to "revolutionize endurance sports" becomes fodder for a techno-thriller, which starts with a unique idea and works through some interesting narrative surprises." - Judge, 23rd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards

Of course, the most obvious of those applications would be classed as cheating. Some people don't mind that, though. Some people are quite comfortable with cheating.
One of those people is billionaire and extreme athlete Jack McKnight--who happens to be the former lover of Evan's boss, Dana Brines. And Dana and Jack have a son together. Or they did, until last year. Michael died suddenly, after running an ultramarathon.
One of the many important details Evan doesn't know is that there are two versions of the project he's dubbed Nan Airs. He's working on a version that will be safe, effective, and undetectable by any easily foreseeable testing method. The army wants that. The army also wants a lethal version, a version that can be triggered to lethality at any time from a safe distance, and that part has been farmed out.
This is a tense, complicated tale about people with multiple competing agendas, and Grinnell keeps it all moving and keeps it all straight for the reader. Evan is decent and kind at his core, but he's a complex character with real weaknesses, and some unpleasant secrets in his past. He's also got a fractured relationship with his brother Luke, that he'd love to repair. Dana Brines has her own complicated motivations and intentions, and Lucius Atticus is a satisfyingly flawed but capable training guru for Evan.
The only really significant character who is a bit too simplistic is Jack McKnight. There's one thing he does, early on, that's just incomprehensible except that it proves how bad this bad guy really is.
Despite that flaw, this is a really great read, a story that keeps moving, with characters you can care about
