    brotherly love

    A decade ago someone kidnapped young Lukas Korsak. The lad just disappeared from sight with no ransom or any demand. His family grieved their loss as the assumption was he was murdered.

    Lukas's older brother Stefan has never forgotten his sibling. Working for the Russian Mafia, he still searches for Lukas when he can. Following a lead, he assaults a top secret human laboratory that brainwashes and genetically modifies kids turning them into lethal assassins. There Stefan finds a teen who looks identically like Lukas adding ten years of maturity to the mental image the mobster has maintained. Freeing the teen, they flee from the facility's leader who sends a horde of transformed young trained killers after them.

    Using technology rather than supernatural as the means of conversion, Rob Thurman provides a strong, faster than a speeding Flash thriller. Intriguing that both brothers are killers; yet the older one trusts their DNA and shared past while the younger sibling distrusts everyone as he has been thoroughly brainwashed so that his instincts are to kill regardless of collateral damage. Readers will relish this tale of brotherly love as Stefan tries to save his brother from what the Madhouse did to him, but soon believes he will be Abel to Lukas' Cain.

    Another twist in a family line existing in an alternative world!

    Stefan's daunting search for his "lost brother" creates another picture of fraternal connection; simliar to the "Cal Leandro" series without an excess of the supernateral "element". You should like the scenes painted in mild gory and adrenline scenes. I think I'll need to read the next book in the series since I've already consumed the "Cal Leandros"series.

    An absolutely fantastic read!!

    If you've ever read any of Rob Thurman's work get to the store! Fast paced, witty and more than a little touching Chimera will keep you on the edge of your seat begging for more! Filled with enough actions to make you tired just reading, it bears repeating get to the store!!
