"The Breach" by Patrick Lewis is an exciting techno thriller

This book will keep you reading so intently you may miss your bus stop or stay up much later than you intend. It combines the usual action-filled chases and fight scenes you expect from a good thriller with a really interesting technology/science-type plot twist.

Travis Chase is an ex-cop and ex-con; he was in prison for 15 years and now trying to decide what to do next with his life. Out hiking in the Alaskan wilderness, he comes upon a downed 747 full of murder victims including the president's wife who has left a message for whoever finds them. He finds and rescues Paige, who draws him into a race to save the world.

I don't want to say more about the plot because that would spoil the thrills, but what they are dealing with doesn't seem all that farfetched given the concerns raised about what could happen from the large hadron collider. The twists and turns in the plot will keep you wondering until the very end. And when you get to the end, you will put the author's next Travis Chase novel "Ghost Country" on your wish list.

I checked this book out from the library.  Support your local library!
