I found this book an exhilarating murder mystery set in twenty-second century . . . it is a thrilling suspense mystery novel that left me with a sensation of excitement as I sat on the edge of my seat tearing through the pages. With the story centred on a series of murders in the small mining community of Summerset, Sam and his crew must find the culprit before their community is lost forever. One thing that makes the story so ingenious is that the identity of the killer is so well concealed from the reader that when the revelation finally occurs, it hits hard and unexpected. With such a shocking ending, the book almost begs to be re-read once the ending is known . . . the book can not be talked about though without taking a moment to mention the intriguing political battle being fought on earth simultaneously to the Summerset murder mystery. Opening with the capture of the U.S. President Hudson by Rising Sign agents, the political fractions at war add a whole other level to this book’s already captivating plot. From a mad prison break out and spreading of a deadly disease to shady elections, assassinations, kidnappings and plenty of killings, the crisis on earth can be summed up with many words….but none of them being the word "dull". The two stories, while being separate, are woven together in such a brilliant way that both compliment each other . . . finally, if the plot is not gratifying enough for the reader, the constant action is sure to thrill and please even the most critical of thriller seekers. The book opens with action, and does not die down. As a reader of action and thrillers, I am always disappointed when I have to endure a dry spell in a work where a period of nothingness occurs. This book does not however, have such a period. Each chapter, and each part with in each chapter, is written to be enjoyable in of itself as well as in the larger picture. A well worth while book…one that I would highly recommend to any who wish to delve their mind into a fictional world filled with high paced adventure.
