Keep The Reader Glued the reader glued the words and the pages would almost go flyby themselves But that s only half the story I know what many readers should be thinking right now ven while I was Comic Print and Theatre in Early Modern Amsterdam enjoying it greatly I admit I was thinking the same thing sure it is suspenseful but still its nothing new A dark brooding lone hero who just happened to be in the right place at the right time to save an innocent kid from some despicable psycho killers Its predictable it happened many times before in various novels and movies Yeah not so much One thing Patrick Lee s novels are NOT that is being predictable He has an amazing knack for starting a novel with a seemingly ordinary plot and then completely turn it s head on itself to make it anything but ordinary or normal This one is noxception For about the first half of the book the story is Digital Trust essentially one chase seuence after another where the bad guys kept tracking the duo with ultra modern satellite techs and Dryden kept invading them with increasingly ingenious ways Run run run While on the run both of them tried to delve deeper into the forgotten realms of Rachel s memories to make a sense ofverything and this is where the plot took some wild turns to set itself apart from other conventional chase thriller to become something truly uniue and Tootles The Taxi And Other Rhymes extraordinary And you do have to go Holy shit in some revelations which in less capable hands could haveasi Sam Dryden a former soldier is out running one vening when he meets Rachel an 11 year old girl who is being hunted by a Government agency All she can remember about herself is what has happened to her in the last 2 months

Oticed some similarities in the way they write though I much prefer Sam Dryden to Jack Reacher 325 stars this is indeed a fast paced thriller my main problem with it is a real need to suspend disbelief throughout this novel would almost be better served as a screenplay as it has cinematic prose filled with lots of action the problem was in believiability than anything and if you
can overcome thatovercome that njoy unadulterated occasionally absurd The Three Elizabeths escapism this could be a title for you My first book by the author Patrick LeeRead many reviews and recommendations for this book including Lee ChildsDid I really love this bookNOAction thriller maybe a far fetched sci fi thriller with lot of plot that becomes to far fetched in fact maybe a little silly and uite heavy goingIt starts out with retired special forces Sam Dryden out for a run He runs into this young girl named Rachel who is running from these men with guns So he decides to help her The longer he runs with her the he learns about her and the people that are chasing her The deeper he gets into this the harder it is to keep them a liveAction parts chase scenes and pace were good sometimesOver developed and over the top story with too many characters that it becomes confusingI did like the main character in Sam Dryden and believe this character will grow with the authorBut this books falls way behind on a collection of great actionthrillers I have read latelyNot sure if I would recommend this book maybe adding the far fetched plot in this book put me offSo only 3 stars from me Read my review here here Holy smokes this book went from 0 to 60 in less than 2 pages and I loved it Packed with non stop action this book had my heart rate going like I was the one I reallynjoyed this thriller which felt like a cross between Robert Ludlum s The Bourne Identity and Stephen King s Firestarter Out for a late night run protagonist Sam Dryden winds up on the run aiding a mysterious
