A non-stop thrill ride…
DePaul’s excellent near-future SF thriller blends nail-biting action with a highly imaginative premise. When a group of mysterious criminals with superhuman strength wreak havoc in the city, LAPD Captain Jon Diaz finds himself working alongside military to apprehend the criminals, but a tragedy strikes and Jon is thrust into a dangerous world where an entire race of beings is at the brink of extinction. DePaul does a good job keeping the action moving while sustaining suspense through the constantly shifting interactions of his varied cast of interesting characters, all of whom are portrayed with perception and skill. The pacing never slows down, and the hi-tech techno advancements in the story add to the authenticity of the futuristic setting. The book’s high spot is Jon’s entry into the devastating world of humanoids marked for extinction. This is a highly entertaining story that provides a perfect escapist read. This intelligently delivered thriller is pure pleasure.
