Transformed by the StrikeForce technology, he saved New York City from a dirty bomb and nearly died in the process.

The Chimera Strain
Project StrikeForce, Book 2
By: Kevin Lee Swaim
Narrated by: Patrick Freeman
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This continues John's story as he was rebuilt into more than a man and used as a weapon. He was wiped of his memories but they came back. If the government knew, they would kill him. Only one man shares that secret. This book takes the team on another dangerous mission and John must once again use his skills and Eric protects John's secret an

I found this author in a chat room, and I am so glad I did. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors--ever.

The Chimera Strain is the second book of the Project Strikeforce Series, a suspenseful, action packed technological military thriller. In a Jack Bauer of 24 meets Robocop scenario, the reader just never knows what to expect. A soldier is "improved" with superhuman capabilities by the government and used in a covert way--just in case something goes wrong and they need to kill him w

Super soldier strikes again. the second in this series and it does not fail to provide even .
more exciting adventures and uses of all the amazing techno/genome aspects of his abity to be anywhere and do anything that is needed to protect the USA and in the event something goes wrong, since this soldier that was turned into super soldier was "tried, convicted and put to.death for his crimes" no one will be looking for him if he disappears. In this book. His exposure is.becoming more obvious and b

A real thriller, suspenseful, a real page burner. Once you into it you won't want to put it down. Amazingly powerful

Chimera Strain is book two in the Project Strikeforce series following the Office of Threat Management and their super soldier as the team track down and defeat major threats against the USA. Like book one in the series it is an enjoyable piece of fiction, the fact the threats and actions of the team are way out there past what could be considered believable doesn’t in my opinion detract from the enjoyment of the book. It makes no attempt to pitch itself as a real world story it is simply a good ...more

A very good book.

I enjoyed the storyline. It has lots of interesting matter, with something for everyone. High-tech, computer hackers, a little sex and some bad ass spies. I am looking forward to more of this author's writing.

Excellent Thriller

Mr Swaim writes a good action thriller; just enough background to explain the action but he doesn't let it get in the way of some
fantastic shoot em up action. His protagonist is very relatable even though he started out as a totally disgusting villian. Mr. Swaim weaves the thinking, beliefs and actions of a diverse group of characters into a coherent group. (Does EVERYBODY knows John's secret? )
Spend your money and time on an adult, modern action group story.

Cholera indeed.

5 stars because they are warranted! Equally as good as the first book, well done Kevin! All too often plotlines tend to blur towards the end of the novel, yours didn't.

Excellent series

This was the next book in the series and I am hooked. Love the spy vs spy, James Bond, Bourne Supremacy type of story. Very engaging.

Very good book!!!!!

Lost a lot of sleep reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The Chinese and the Russians figure prominently in this story with stops in Somalia and North Korea. John is having lots of problems, Eric is doing his best for John but who knows how much he can help as the medical procedures are killing John. Such a good storyline, Thanks, Amarillo Turtle
