A scientific breakthrough in Einstein-Rosen Bridges, or wormholes, is stolen by a group of misguided M.I.T. graduate students. They scheme to usher in a global science-based oligarchy. Greed, betrayal, murder, mayhem, spiritual contemplation, and unconditional love define the power-play struggle in this fast-paced suspense thriller of technology gone too far. As the death toll mounts, will Chase Manhattan and a multi-faceted cast of characters escape their hit list and destroy the discovery which threatens life as we know it?
Why I like it:
Full of heart-stopping action! Lots of chasing, suspense-filled book. If you love Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft, you'll see a few Lara Croft-like women in this novel by Stephen Tremp. Chase Manhattan, the main character, is surrounded by them.
What makes it interesting is how well-researched the book is. It is amazing how it tells about parallell universes, wormholes and time-travel. It left me wondering, asking myself the 'hows' and 'what-ifs.' I love this kind of story. It's fast-paced. Yes, the kind that will take you to the edge of your seat. I know it's a cliche but how else would you describe an exciting book such as this?
Breakthrough, the first book in the Adventures of Chase Manhattan series, begins with a big bang and offers the audience exciting, unique, and diverse heroes and villains. The result is a fresh suspense thriller series integrating elements of greed, betrayal, passion, lust, unconditional love, coming of age, and hope. The action is swift. There are numerous twists and turns that will keep the reader turning the pages and wanting more.
Breakthrough is available for download to the Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony Reader, Apple iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, and Google Android at Smashwords and for the Kindle at Amazon.
