I LOVED Miracle Man, Book I, so I was very eager to begin The Austin Paradox, Book II, and I did, immediately. It’s a story of a superhero, but not one endowed with magical powers. He has a mind, a level of genius, never seen before. This is where we find Robert James Austin’s mindset as we embark on a mission to save more lives. There is a force of negativity and destruction in the universe. Highly efficient and infinitely resourceful, it empowers and leads. It gives diseases their resiliency, their tenacity, their propensity to reinvent themselves, resist treatments, regenerate and defensively mutate. It propels them. Christine, his wife, just wants a normal life, and now she has it…or does she? William R Leibowitz’s novels have a ring of truth to them, when dealing with Big Pharma and the government. So much of what he writes makes me angry, disgusted, and feeling helpless to do anything about it. I love when an author’s writing brings forth emotions that, at times, seem to overwhelm me. And if these books don’t open your eyes and scare you, I don’t know what will. I have dealt with the affects of the ‘don’t cure the disease, just treat the symptoms’, mentality of those who want more, more money, more control, more….How about you? The main story, though, is about Robert James Austin and his desire to right the wrongs, all while fighting his personal demons. Robert believes that things should change and wants to help do it, by finding cures and making them accessible to everyone, not just those who can afford it. Man, oh man, if only his cures were real. The Austin Pardox is different from The Miracle Man, but we are still learning about his genius, or now, it is his lack of it. His life is still in danger from himself, but also from outside forces who want him gone. The book may be different, but it is still just as intense. A biological weapon, an apocalyptic Islamic caliphate…I wonder how everything will come together. I fear for the entire planet. I know this is fiction, but I feel it could become all too real. Can we look at William R Leibowitz’s series as a warning? Think about it. Who decides who lives and who dies? Who do you trust? The Austin Paradox left me hopeful and angry for The Miracle Man. I didn’t rate this as high as The Miracle Man. It was a bit different, but I wonder, was it my mood? Did I get dogged down in the details? I wonder if, after reading The Miracle Man, I found The Austin Paradox more predictable. I don’t know, but I find the series to be a special series, and I would highly recommend it to everyone! I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Austin Paradox by William R Liebowitz.

This book is beyond an amazing read Prepare to be blown away with the best story you ever read. This book is beyond an amazing read. It is exceptionally good. It is hard to put it down. I should read the first book but accidentally read this 2nd book instead. I have no regrets though. This book is beyond the love of a family. Being selfish and willing to risk your life is what Austin is capable for to save the humankind. The theory of this man is mesmerizing and the power he has to share it to his kids is beyond powerful. The author is brilliant. He is a wonderful writer who not only give us twist our mind but the most story you can ever read. I really enjoyed this book so very much. One of the best read I had for a very long time. The best story line you can ever imagined is included in this story. Prepare to be amazed.

The Austin Paradox is the exciting second book from The Miracle Man series. Robert James Austin once again continues to battle and struggle with the government, his demons, and other forces that he encounters. He has to act quick to get back what he had work hard for all his life. When I finished reading The Miracle Man, I was quite pleased to find out that Austin’s story continues. I was not disappointed! I enjoyed catching up with him and Christina, as well as, their new family. The Austin Paradox is just as thrilling and suspense filled as the first. I did have a hard time at first trying to catch on what was going on but that quickly changed about fifty pages in. I had a hard time wanting to put the book down from then on. The action and suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. I had to know what was about to happen. I found the plot to be very unpredictable and I was always guessing where it would lead to next. I could not help but to sit back and wonder if this could really happen in real life. I give The Austin Paradox a well deserved five plus stars. I hope there will be more in The Miracle Man series in the near future. I can not get enough of this series. William R. Leibowitz really knows how to write a thriller that keeps a reader engaged and feel connected to the characters. Highly recommended for those who love medical and political thrillers. Awesome read! I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Reviewed by Carol Hoyer for Reader Views (6/18) From the very first page of “The Austin Paradox,” author William R. Leibowitz captured my attention. The story is based on a gifted scientist whose research has developed cures for several deadly diseases. Just as he is on the verge of finding a cure for AIDS, his laboratory blows up nearly killing him and his family, and has destroyed a majority of his research. Readers follow Robert James Austin and his family who are in a WITSC protection program due to some unsavory individuals who want to permanently stop his research in their own quest for power, control and greed. After having survived a five-month coma and massive injuries, Austin realizes he has lost his genius skills and cannot even read or analyze the simplest mathematical formula. Colum McAlister, the former CEO of one of the largest Big Pharma companies in the world, Bushings Pharmaceuticals is now serving nineteen years in prison for a multitude of charges ranging from money laundering, extortion and murder. However, this does not stop him from continuing his “deadly deeds” from prison. McAlister plans to make and control the cure for a deadly disease that will be developed by another researcher who is under his control. As readers may know, bio-engineered viruses are a major topic of concern by all world leaders, families around the dinner table, and major research facilities. We have already seen the impact of specific gases that have wiped out communities. Leibowitz provides readers with well-developed characters and subplots that will scare even the most unshakable personalities. The book does have some terminology that is unfamiliar and might require looking up a few terms. Due to the very detailed nature of the narratives, this is not a fast read, and one will want to take the time to absorb the information, but make no mistake – you will be kept on the edge of your seat right from the beginning. The “Austin Paradox” is the sequel to the author’s award-winning, “Miracle Man” and I found the story stands firmly on its own merits. William  R. Leibowitz does a great job of keeping the suspense and action going throughout the book and I recommend this compelling read to all who enjoy intense medical/psychological thrillers who might ask, “Could this really happen?”
