    Calling all Doc Savage and Destroyer fans. I have found a series

    Calling all Doc Savage and Destroyer fans. I have found a series that is just up your alley. Meet Jack Silger (King) and his Chess Team, Queen, Knight, Bishop, and Rook, run by a mysterious character named Deep Blue. This team's mission is to protect the world from evil. It might be a highly sophisticated terrorists, or a mythology creature that is really too real, or a madman that wants to rule the world. In King's world these are normal. A true fun action ride. Come along, you won't regret it

    If you love Doc Savage and The Destroyer, meet Jack Silger, lead

    If you love Doc Savage and The Destroyer, meet Jack Silger, leader of the Chess Team. He has a team of elite members that goes out to defeat forces that no one else could beat. (Or imagine.) Take the best military team against super science mixed with living mythology creatures, you now have a high action ride. Highly recommended.

    PULSE of adventure

    Just finished reading PULSE, by Jeremy Robinson (Thomas Dunne, Trade Cloth, 324 pages). All I can say is, forget the summer blockbusters; pop some popcorn and settle in with this thrill ride. Pulse is the first novel to feature the Chess team, five elite military operatives named for, you guessed it, chess pieces and guided by the mysterious and seemingly omniscient figure known as Deep Blue. In their first outing, the mission is personal as King, the team leader, sets out to rescue his closest friend, archaeologist George Pierce, from the clutches of Richard Ridley, a megalomaniacal villain who needs Pierce to help him unlock the secret of a mythical monster that may hold the key to immortality.

    The action moves around the globe as King and his team race to catch up with Ridley before he can decipher the genetic blueprint of the legendary Hydra, a creature capable of regenerating from any injury. But Ripley, armed with unlimited resources and the latest in technology and guarded by a team of testosterone crazed military wash-outs, manages to stay one step ahead of them, even as he unleashes the failed products of his experimentation on an unsuspecting world.

    This novel is the perfect blend of monsters, myth and mayhem. It's a high-tech shoot-'em-up that doesn't go completely over the top (like some I won't name here) but stays grounded in plausible science, with good guys you care about and villains you love to hate. This weekend, skip the cinematic CGI and grab a copy of Pulse for a few hours of real entertainment. Just be careful to wipe the popcorn butter off your fingers before you turn the next page.

    more from this reviewer

    over the top action-packed thriller

    In Peru the mythological Hydra of Hercules' tasks fame is found in Peru alive though in some form of sleep. Manifold Genetic CEO Richard Ridley wants to awaken the deadly beast as he has a plan to use the creature's DNA to make humans immortal.

    His firm steals the find and kidnaps the archaeologist associated with the dig Dr. George Pierce. He has the Hydra and the archeologist taken to a lab he set up on Tristan da Cunha, an island in the South Atlantic. The American government is concerned so it assigns Deep Blue to send in the elite of the Delta Force, the Chess Team unit headed Jack "King" Sigler and the rest of his "pieces" to invade and capture the Hydra and save the archeologist. They soon find themselves battling reengineered reptile like crawlers, and two and four legged beasts that regenerate body parts.

    Combining mythology with Jurassic Park, PULSE is an over the top action-packed thriller that will have readers hooked from start to finish as one escapade leads to another and another, etc as the story line never takes a breather. The Chess Team unit knows anyone of them can be turned into an expendable pawn as the mission comes before their individual lives. Readers will enjoy the adventures of the King and his "pieces" as they try to prevent a potential pandemic catastrophe.
