Intrusion is a novel in the mold of James Bond with a bit of sci-fi electronics and biology to create the scenario. Overall, I enjoyed the book, which creates perhaps the first Canadian hero in modern fiction who fights for truth, justice and the Canadian way. Many things are predictable with the bad guys getting killed while the good guys are only nicked by bullets, and the hero gets the girl in the end, so although the novel fails to raise many philosophical questions, it's an alternative to Cussler, et. al. I thought this might have been a translation from the French, but the author handles expletives and phrases with English experience. I expect this is a first introductory book to an intended series. It will be interesting to see what follows.

This was a Goodreads First Reads paperback supplied by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Réal Laplaine Mike, thanks for that review and rating. Interesting that you mention Cussler because I like his stuff. The second in this series will be around in early 2013. More coming.
