Technothriller is the description given to The Breach and its mates by reviewers. These are science fiction set in the present day. Patrick Lee’s work reminds me a lot of another famous technothriller writer, Michael Crichton. The books keep you on the edge of your seat. You barely have time to register a new concept before the characters are running for their lives to a new scenario. The concepts are logical and plausible, so that the extrapolations are that much more terrifying.
The main characters are likable and believable, with a thwarted romance to spice things a bit. Political intrigue and catastrophic doomsday possibilities keep your attention from wavering. I highly recommend this trilogy(also called the Travis Chase Trilogy), and here’s hoping someone makes them into movies. ~Tessa 4.5 out of 5 stars December 2013
