    Have you ever read a movie?

    Have you ever read a movie? We don’t mean a screenplay, but a thriller action/adventure that uncoils in your mind as you turn the pages? With the complex twists and deep underlying revelations of a Dan Brown novel and the rollercoaster speed of a Michael Bay film, “The Eden Prophecy” is one of the most satisfying, impossible-to-put down novels your reviewer has read in a long time.
    We have Hawker, the James Bond-ish agent who travels the world righting wrongs and doing good deeds, but he is neither perfect nor superhuman, which is a nice touch. With Danielle—his co-operative with whom he may or may not be in love—Hawker goes up against the newest breed of terrorist: the possessors of a new virus that can wipe out humanity…or can it? Can it end life prematurely, or prolong it forever? In either case, humanity would be doomed.
    The author convincingly leads us to the present site of the Biblical Garden of Eden, where the virus is found in the fruit of, yes, The Tree of Life. He takes us to the slums of Paris and the Iranian desert and the most dangerous parts of Africa and the high-tech genetic labs of the world. He gives us antiques from the time of Adam and clear explanations of the latest genetic engineering. More importantly, he give us characters who live and breathe, especially a hero who does not take bullets with the impunity of a Fearless Fosdick, but endures physical, emotional, and mental anguish as those he cares for and those he never met are faced with extinction. While we thrill as he rides his motorcycle through Paris, chasing the boat with the bad guys, we never think to utter the “bull” word, but can’t wait to turn the page to see how this scene plays out.
    Mr. Graham is a very skilled writer, a master of bringing together action, pathos, thrills, excitement, science, and philosophy. We cannot recommend this novel with any more enthusiasm. In a word, it is a TREAT.

    A thrilling adventure with a lot of emotional turmoil thrown in!

    This was a non-stop page-turning adventure from the very first pages of this book, the third in a series of Hawker/Laidlaw adventures. Nothing is as it seems, there is a sinister villain hiding in the shadows and plotting against Hawker, Danielle and the entire world. Who is he, how does he fit into all that is happening? From the streets of Paris to the deserts of Iran this book will not disappoint any thriller/adventure lover!

    Author Graham Brown has outdone himself on each of his books, each one has been better than the last and I look forward to reading his future books including the NUMA Series books he is co-authoring with Clive Cussler!

    Just finished reading The Eden Prophecy, Graham Brown doesn't disappoint. I couldn't put this book down (Black Rain and Black Sun as well). These books keep you wanting more. I read mostly at night, whenever I am done with a chapter I need to know what comes next, I wind up staying up very late. If you are looking for good thriller novels, this series is definitely for you.
