Beyond Judgment by Richard Bard

With Publishers Weekly heralding the first book in his Brainrush thriller series as “terrifically entertaining” and “inventive and compelling,” and Book-2 holding a death grip on the #1 or #2 slots of the Amazon Top-Rated (best reviewed) Mystery/Thrillers list for 10 straight months, Beyond Judgment, the third in the series, sees hero Jake Bronson at the mercy of his hidden past.

After waking up with amnesia from a six-year coma, Jake Bronson’s past is lost to him. But that doesn’t mean the past hasn’t been looking for him—or that it will let him live when it finally catches up.
Jake’s placid, anonymous life in Italy is shattered by the arrival of an assassination squad hell-bent on eliminating him—and he has no idea why he’s in their crosshairs. He’s saved only when an American scientist intervenes, wielding strange technology that briefly reactivates Jake’s dormant memories and deadly skills. As unknown enemies continue to hound Jake’s every step, the scientist helps him reconnect with lost friends and loved ones who believed him long dead.

Any happy reunion is forfeit, though, as Jake’s murky history and mysterious talents conceal a terrible secret that—should it fall into the wrong hands—could trigger the extinction of the human race. Averting this apocalypse means Jake must risk everything to reawaken his true self and stop an ancient order from unleashing humanity’s ultimate judgment.

An “international thriller with soul.” Ideal reading for fans of Michael Crichton, Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Brad Thor, Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and Vince Flynn.

Editorial Reviews

"Bard delivers a high-octane, nonstop adventure. Brainrush 4 will be eagerly anticipated." —Booklist

“It’s part science fiction, part thriller, part suspense, part love story, and part mystery. It’s got it all and that’s what makes this novel one of the best. A superb novel.” —Suspense Magazine

Another exciting read. I started with the first book in the series and have read the second also. This third book is just as good as the first two. The drama that started in the second book continues in this book. I like how we continue to learn about the characters as their personalities unfold. I especially like the children who are included in the story. I will be reading the rest of the books in this series.

I fell in love with the series when I read books 1 and 2 back to back.  I had impossibly high expectations when I started reading book 3.  To the point where I was nervous... worried that the third installment couldn't possibly live up to my lofty expectations.  Especially after waiting a year for the latest release. All of my worries were for nothing.  Book three was a smash hit that managed to surpass my expectations in every possible way.  It was an action packed thrill-ride from beginning to end.  But maybe even more impressively, the way book three ties into the events and characters from the earlier releases actually managed to pull at my heartstrings.  While the book was an action thriller, it had more than a few touching moments that were brilliantly written. Five stars.  Bring on book #4!  I can't wait!

In this third book in the Brainrush trilogy, Jake Bronson awakens with no memory of who he is. He finds himself, once again, in the clutches of an evildoer who plans to destroy mankind and set up a new world utopia from the ashes. Of course, nothing ever happens as planned in a Richard Bard story so, without giving anything away, Jake and his friends and family find themselves in one impossible situation after another. Their survival, and that of all humanity, depends on each others' skills and willingness to do the impossible. I love the nonstop action in these books. Just when you think Jake's group has survived one crisis, another one rears its ugly head. You just have to keep on reading to find out how they get out of each one. This book, and the two earlier ones, are real treats to any reader who enjoys suspense with a heady dose of science fiction. I highly recommend them.
