NY Times Bestselling Authors' Reviews:

Douglas Preston, bestselling author of The Codex, Relic and Book of the Dead (these last two with Lincoln Child) as well as many more, says: "Brainstorm is as exciting and fast-paced as a thrill ride on a dive bomber, a maelstrom of action, violence, murder and mayhem, way too much fun to put down.... An outstanding novel."

James Rollins, bestselling author of Black Order, Sandstorm and Map of Bones as well as many others, says: "... a kickass adventure story that will have you thrumming through the pages well into the night. ... handled with stunning effect."

Brainstorm:

What if a small American town is secretly replicated, populated with kidnapped scientists and psychically talented civilians, and then used as a proving ground while training psychic assassins? Political and military leaders of the Free World are the targets of these psychic warriors, and Project Brainstorm's goal is world domination. The only person who can stop the unthinkable plot is a seemingly simple man without a clue.

In Brainstorm, Gold Rush seems to be just another sleepy little Colorado community full of friendly, caring citizens, quaint cottages, and a sort of quiet peace, held gently by the picturesque mountains that surround it. However, something isn't right in Gold Rush, and early on a Monday morning Robert Weller awakens with a cautioning and insuppressible voice inside his head. He soon finds a secret behind every door, a motive with every glance, and a lie beneath every spoken word.

After meeting a strange but beautiful woman named Sunny who insists they were once lovers, people begin dropping dead around him without apparent cause. The world he thought he knew twists upside down as paramilitary teams hunt him, and his own wife and the people he considers friends turn against him. Weller finds himself thrown into the middle of a military mission to rescue thousands of the town's citizens from a plot to destroy the Free World.

Time is running out: Weller, Sunny and thousands of innocent citizens are facing nuclear devastation. Major "Jax" Jackson and a U.S. Air Force Para Rescue team are their only hope-but how can Jax and his PJs save them all, armed only with nonlethal weapons?

Douglas Preston, bestselling author of The Codex, Relic and Book of the Dead (these last two with Lincoln Child) as well as many more, says: "Brainstorm is as exciting and fast-paced as a thrill ride on a dive bomber, a maelstrom of action, violence, murder and mayhem, way too much fun to put down once you're hooked. It is also frighteningly believable, based on an actual black CIA program known as 'Project Stargate. Kessler is a former US Marine parachutist, recon scout, and 'Super Squad' team leader-and he really knows his stuff. An outstanding novel."

James Rollins, bestselling author of Black Order, Sandstorm and Map of Bones as well as many others, says: "Gordon A. Kessler's Brainstorm is a wild ride into the reality of human consciousness, forcing us to question who we are and our place in the universe. It's also a kickass adventure story that will have you thrumming through the pages well into the night. Its blend of topical research, cutting-edge weaponry, and current political tension is handled with stunning effect."

A fast-paced thriller that will keep you flipping the pages. I like that the author drew inspiration from actual mind-altering methods used in the military. If you love thrillers, I highly recommend this one.

Brainstorm starts at a rapid pace from the first few pages and then has the audacity to speed up further...haven't read anything in a long time that kept my heart pounding throughout like Brainstorm. I found myself holding my breath near the end. Mr. Kessler takes what is incredulously real-life and creates an eerily plausible scheme. I'd never heard of remote viewing until picking up this book, and it made me hungry for more information about covert black projects run by our government. Makes one wonder what else they aren't telling us. Glad I took a risk on a relatively unknown author. Can't wait for the next in the series!
