Book Review-Seeker-Douglas E Richards

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

I have read many of Douglas E Richards books before and they never fail to keep me intrigued and thinking!! I was so happy to be able to get this through my Prime subscription. I think it is only the second time I have ever done that--but it really works!!

Richards writes near future thrillers--what does that mean exactly? Well he takes what is already happening and what might already be being worked on and incorporates these items in his novels. He does let you know at the very end what is real and what is not!

Seeker is from an alien race and was sent here for one purpose--but was subverted by a different alien race. What goes on and how the heroine manages to get through to him and save the human race from almost total annihilation will keep you reading and spellbound. That it takes place in the Amazon Rainforest gives it an extra creepy feel.

If you have never read one of this authors novels I highly suggest you get one whichever way you can--you will get hooked like I have!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A breathtaking near-future thriller. From the New York Times bestselling author whose books have sold over a million copies.

A small alien spacecraft with extraordinary secrets. And a mad scramble to get to it first.

When an interstellar probe lands in the heart of the Amazon Jungle, powerful nations around the world will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Because the unoccupied alien craft is sure to contain revolutionary technology. Technology that will allow the country that controls it to dominate the globe.

With the probe hidden within the densest rainforest on Earth, traditional military power is useless. So the US chooses to send in a single operative, a man who's been enhanced to the limits of current technology. He'll be greatly outnumbered, and with so much on the line, not even the closest of allies can be trusted.

But the true stakes are higher than anyone could possibly know. Because all is not what it seems.

And the alien spacecraft has plans of its own . . .

Seeker is a fast-paced, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that explores actual human enhancements being worked on today, along with mind-blowing concepts that readers will be pondering long after they've read the last page.

"Richards is an extraordinary writer," (Dean Koontz) who can "keep you turning the pages all night long." (Douglas Preston)

"Richards is a worthy successor to Michael Crichton." (SF Book dot com)
