The Chimera Strain by Kevin Lee Swaim

John Frist was a soldier, a hero, and the victim of an IED attack in Iraq before his discharge. He returned home and committed a terrible act of domestic terrorism. Transformed by the StrikeForce technology, he saved New York City from a dirty bomb and nearly died in the process. For him, the ensuing two years has been a bone-wearying series of battles to protect the United States.

Eric Wise has risen from Director of Project StrikeForce to Assistant Director of the Office of Threat Management. Tasked with preventing the end of the world, he protects John while directing the OTM against a vast sea of threats.

The Office of Threat Management still watches over the world and the StrikeForce technology gives John an amazing edge, but will it be enough to prevent a man bent on attacking the United States and reducing it to a third-world power?

I found this author in a chat room, and I am so glad I did. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors--ever.  The Chimera Strain is the second book of the Project Strikeforce Series, a suspenseful, action packed technological military thriller. In a Jack Bauer of 24 meets Robocop scenario, the reader just never knows what to expect. A soldier is "improved" with superhuman capabilities by the government and used in a covert way--just in case something goes wrong and they need to kill him without anyone knowing. Plausible deniability at it's best. The President of the US is put in a tricky political position, mimicking real life scenarios. Some claim he is too liberal, and others hate him for not pulling out of Iraq. A terrorist threat/event puts him in a precarious situation---how will the world react?  in the meantime, US forces search, trying to figure out just WHO the enemy is. This story bounces around the globe, showing the inter workings and behind the scenes actions of terrorists and those who combat them.  Another excellently planned, well searched thriller! Swaim's character development and style keep you wanting more. I quite enjoy the one-liners of wit and sarcasm which as depth to the characters. Thank you, Mr. Swaim.... keep 'em coming!
