This story kept my heart pounding right up through the ending. From the very beginning you knew something just wasn't right with the people and the setting - and very quickly you find you're absolutely correct.

I'd never heard about our governments paranormal projects until reading Brainstorm, which made me want to find out more details. Fascinating subject matter - and all too potentially real.

Powerful read!

Robert Weller slips in the shower, hits his head and wakes up in the hospital. Now, he's home and something is a bit off. First, there is the note under the bar soap in the shower. Then, there is the gerbil in the linen closet. Over breakfast with his wife, his anger causes the T.V. to blowup and the power to go out. His wife, Michelle, tries to soothe him with the promise of their upcoming appointment with the doctor, the man who may be able to get their son William to walk again.

I almost gave up on this one several times, perhaps I should have read the publishers blurb first as it gives a one line summary of what has happened. It did feel as though I had been thrown into the second or third part of a series particularly as it is titled as part of the Daniel McMaster Series but it does seem to be the first in the series. Eventually and it took about a 1/3rd of the book everything came together and it became an exciting all action tale. It is difficult to say too much wit...more
This book was intriguing. It kept me guessing the entire time, and the ending was in part, what I expected, and in part, completely took me by surprise.

There were a few minor things that kind of pulled me out of the story - little things like spelling errors or verb tense. They pulled me out of the story as I tried to mentally replace what was there with what it should have been, but overall, didn't really have an effect on the story itself.

It was a very unique idea that I can't recall ever ha...more

Fast-paced entertainment!

This book was my first introduction to this author. The plot is one of many twists and turns; guaranteed to keep you flipping the pages to the very end! I hope there's a sequel in the works!
This psychological crime mystery involves mind manipulation. Things are not what they appear and everyone has something to hide. Then people, including some government officials, start mysteriously dying from heart attacks. As the truth is gradually revealed and the plot unfolds, it leads to a fast-paced race against time involving military special ops teams.

Interesting characters and situations that keep your attention throughout with a few surprises along the way. It has some weak spots but o...more

An amazing read. Way too many editing errors to be acceptable in a book of this otherwise awesome calibre, but still a must-read for anyone who enjoyed watching the Matrix, who thinks the good guy should eventually figure out a way to win and that the USA military is still the top of the heap. A "guy book"...but I liked it too.
