Review by: Chad Pfortmiller on May 21, 2013 :
Excellent story and once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. I want to see the movie and maybe another book to cover the time that passes from the end to the epilogue.

The Mengele Effect is a fantastic read! It starts out fast, and the pace and tension ratchet up and up until the climax, with a nice little twist to bring you gently back down at the end. It's a horror story, but it's also got a good dose of techno/military thriller in it, too, and Mr. Grossart does a great job of keeping the mix just right. If you're looking for a good tale told well, I recommend it highly.

Review by: Scott Crowder on March 29, 2013 :
The Mengele Effect is a TNT-fueled juggernaut of a novel that barrels along at a breakneck pace, a pace so fool-hearty that , as you read it, you’re sure Mr. Grossart will lose control at any moment and send it hurtling into the nearest train station full of innocent bystanders, killing them all and maybe their next-of-kin too, just for good measure. Instead, he keeps this monstrosity on track with a deft touch and a vast arsenal of verisimilitude presumably picked up from his days in the Air Force. A staggeringly good novel that’s part horror, part political techno-thriller, it’s so good it won’t let you go until it’s over.

Incredible story... I love the twist at the end. It made me wonder what side I wanted to be on at the end; I still haven't decided...

I love books like this, that stay with me for days, weeks, or even years after...
