Overview

“Audacious and terrifying—and uncannily believable.”
—Lee Child

New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series, Lee Child, was blown away by The Breach—and you will be, too! A novel of unrelenting suspense and nonstop surprises, The Breach immediately rockets author Patrick Lee into the V.I.P. section of the thriller universe. A treat for Jack Bauer (“24”) fans and “X-Files” aficionados, it is a white-knuckle roller-coaster ride that combines the best of Dean Koontz and Michael Crichton with a healthy dollop of Indiana Jones thrown into the mix—the perfect secret agent/government conspiracy/supernatural adventure.

Reads like a Dan Brown novel. Non stop action, great character development, clever storyline. ( P.s., try not to read previous rambling reviews by idiots that for some reason feel compelled to reveal plot details. I'm sure you would probably like to read the book yourself.)

I started reading and could not put this book down. The author did a great job of keeping the plot moving in directions that were surprising and unexpected. Great read! I give this book a high read recommendation!

This was the first book by Patrick Lee I've read and I will definately look for others books by Lee. Lots of plot twists including the ending. Like most thrillers, there are some very dificult situations from which there seems to be no escape. Most are plausible. Characters and scenes are developed well. Not easy to stop reading at any time.

I really enjoyed this tale with a new action hero Travis Chase who is a mix of John McClane meeting Harry Bosch. Chase is someone who did something wrong and ended up spending twelve years in prison. When he gets out he is offered a position in his brother's computer company but instead decides to go someplace where nobody knows him so he can be alone and find himself. He ends up in Alaska hiking through sections of Alaskan wilderness. While on one of these hikes a 747 jet crashes close to him. Travis goes to investigate. He finds everyone aboard dead but notices that among them is the first lady, who has scrawled a note. The note tells him to kill the people that did this as a matter of natural security and to call a phone number and let "Tangent" know what happened. The bad guys that did this have apparently taken a father and daughter prisoner and are torturing the daughter in front of the father to get him to tell them something. His willpower is slowly fading and Travis decides to take aciton to start killing the bad guys and try to rescue the two people. This leads to battles with numerous bad guys like a Die Hard movie. We find out that everything is related to an underground desert base controlled by Tangent, a covert government group. In that base an experiment with ion colliders has created a "breach" in maybe the fabric of time and space. Through the breach come different "entities" which are objects with different types of powers. The most powerful object is the object known as Whisper. I kind of likened the objects to the various mutants of the X-Men and The Whisper as being like Magneto. The book moves as breakneck speed and little by little we learn what Travis had done to land him in prison We also learn that Whisper seems to know all that will happen regardless of whether the predictable or unpredictable is done. Everything that happens seems to center around Travis and it is up to him to defeat the bad guys and Whisper or the world could face dire consequences. Virtually impossible to put this book down! Highly recommended.

Wonderful pacing, with jolts, twists and turns at the beginning and ending of every chapter. What a supernatural thriller is supposed to be.

I read this book just by chance. I loved it and order the remained two immediately. I have subsequently read all three books in this series and also his most recent book "Runner". This series was imaginative, inventive, interesting, and somehow with all of the fictional and far fetched events that he creates in his stories he seems to keep it all related, well connected, and you get the feeling that each story is well thought out. I wish he has written more books - I am fresh out.

This grabbed me from the start and did not let go until I finished it. I will definitely read the subsequent books in the series.

I just finished his last book and am sad there are no more to read (yet). Killer scifi meets kick ass action. Very intellegent writing. I hunger for more like this.
