Tony Thorne's "Points of View" is a standalone read. I don't usually read thrillers, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I loved it. It's a great read with lots of twists and turns. An interesting cocktail with two parts Walter Mitty, one part Jason Bourne, and three parts Inception! Did you ever see that Buffy the Vampire episode where she can't figure out if she's in the looney bin or not? This book has a similar vibe. Love it! Tony always has something interesting for me to read.
Horace Mayberry has always dreamed of becoming a special agent, but being born with eye problems, his dreams seem even more impossible when, just after his 17th birthday he becomes totally blind. Then Professor Oscar Freeman enters his life and offers him a revolutionary procedure, which he has developed at his special nanotechnological laboratory. Soon Horace discovers the laboratory is government funded, and the military have many uses for his eyes. His training commences and Captain Aubrey Jacksons is assigned to look after him. It is soon obvious to everyone that the potential uses for the eyes go way beyond anyone’s expectations. However, danger is forever present for Horace, in the form of Rudolph Beckmann, who wants to steal the technology for his own uses. Will Rudolph Beckmann succeed? Will Horace fulfil his dream of becoming a special agent? I thoroughly enjoyed reading this futuristic, action packed thriller. Its fast pace and intriguing technological possibilities left me hoping that Tony Thorne has many more adventures lined up for Horace Mayberry in the future.
