Hayes with Raymond Gaynor, author of TOTAL MELTDOWN (Borgo/Wildside)"
As co-author of QUANTUM DEATH, I typically tuck the newly released away for a couple months and then re-read it as if I were simply a reader.
QUANTUM DEATH (Savant 2016) by A. G. Hayes with Raymond Gaynor (that's me) is a great re-read, re-re-read and, as of today, re-re-re-read. To me, that's the acid test of a good thriller: It's got to have enough embedded within the story so that, like the best of rollercoasters, it remains a thrilling experience when experienced again and again. Part of its staying power, I believe, are the protagonists, Koski and Falk, whose relationship changes throughout the previous five books in the series, and will continue to do so. Another part of its staying power is that it is more aptly a politico-techno-thriller with distinctly humanistic overtones that can be re-read from any of these distinctly different points of view. Another part is that while clearly fictitious, it could almost qualify as historical fiction, in that everything from politics to technology to thrills are plausible extensions of existing sticky situations within the world today. Finally, as in "real life," not all of today's "good" and "bad" guys who appear in the novel end up such.
In short, QUANTUM DEATH is a somewhat complex, sometimes sit-back-and-yell, sometimes thoughtfully cerebral work that I hope readers will find worth not only reading, but re-reading, re-re-reading and re-re-re-reading, like me.
I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Wow! This book epitomizes my definition of a thriller. It had me from the get go and kept me interested until the last page. It was an intriguing concept with great characters. It was more than simply a good read ... it was also a challenge to the mind. I want to go back and read the earlier books in this series.
