The Breach, by Patrick Lee
Book Review by Jaqhama
Have you read this book?
I've been reading a number of thrillers with a science fiction element of late.
Some of them have been awful. Others have been very good indeed. The Breach by
Patrick Lee was one of the latter.
Mixing the elements of a thriller novel with an added dash of science fiction
The Breach tells the story of ex-cop and also ex-con Travis Chase.
Newly released from prison he heads into the Alaskan wilderness to find
himself. Instead he finds a crashed 747 with the recently deceased body of the
President's wife on board. Her last written message warns of a terrible danger,
on a worldwide scale.
Travis is the man on the spot. Miles from nowhere, in the desolate snow country
of Alaska he is thrust headlong into a terrifying odyssey to discover what
strange and significant cargo was aboard the crashed 747, a cargo that is now
His search will take him from the snow to the desert, and a secret facility,
miles below ground, wherein the Breach lies waiting.
The Breach; A hole in the matter of our world, from which strange and
potentially lethal objects are arriving at regular intervals. One of those
objects has fallen into the hands of a man who does not have the world's best
interests at heart.
It would be a shame to divulge anything more of the plot. Much better if
readers go along on the fast paced, thrill a chapter, for themselves.
I found the story so fast paced and intriguing that I read the entire novel in
one day. And I haven't done that for a while.
Plenty of cliff hanger moments and a plot that keeps the reader interested enough
to keep turning the pages.
There's not a great deal of character depth and the science is pure SF pulp,
but this book is written to entertain and thrill and keep you on the edge of
your seat and it does that in a most admirable manner. And unlike many new
releases in this genre market that I've read recently, the editing and proof
reading was of a very high standard.
I was hooked from the opening chapters and The Breach held my interest all the way
until the final page.
I don't think you can ask for much more than that.
In fact I enjoyed The Breach so much that as soon as I finished it I logged
onto the Book Depository and ordered the second Travis Chase novel; Ghost
Perhaps that's the best recommendation I can give, both to The Breach and to
new author Patrick Lee.
