"Source" is the sequel to "Measure of Danger", where we met Kade Sims as a former Army officer with a role at the National Counterterrorism Center, recruited to consult for the FBI on a domestic anti-terror operation. Kade's experiences with The Chapter led to his placement in the Witness Security Program, where this sequel begins. The Chapter has regrouped and is now causing international terror. Kade is recruited again to use his knowledge to assist the FBI in removing the threat.

Kade's back, but so's the Chapter. This novel is the perfect follow-up to Measure of Danger and continues to delve into the character of Kade Sims and his journey as a reluctant hero. As with his debut novel, Mr. Klages delivers a fast paced, high tech sequel that is hard to put down. This time Kade's world opens up beyond domestic terrorism as the author introduces a new global and political landscape for him to navigate. Once again, Mr. Klages is on the mark as he supports a well crafted story ...more

Great continuation

Defeating the chapter continues in this second book. The storyline although is a bit slow in some places carries on from the first book. If you enjoyed that you should read this. We learn more about the reach of the chapter and how they come close to causing the downfall of the president. Hopefully the story continues in the future.

Terrific read

I really enjoyed reading this second book from the author. It reads like a film in the making and I thought the level of detail wasn’t so technical that I couldn’t follow but was enough to bring life to the work. Looking forward to the next one!

Total thriller

After reading this, made me wonder if this could happen. Today there so many unknowns, but was realistic. Read and enjoy

Kade's story continues and leaves me questioning everything but never prepared for the turns it takes. Crossing terrorism, politics, and greed means its impossible to put down when you can't figure out who is pulling the strings. ...more

This is one of my favorite genre: cybercrime. I found the book fast paced, but with a 'holes' that were distracting to me. The placement of the chip, what it allowed the biounit to do/not do e.g. seeing infrared,communication, termination of biounit's life but what other capabilities , were something that I felt needed further explanation/knowledge of future tech. I also wondered at the ease of invading Chapter .... how could there NOT be massive security, techno security in a world capable of c ...more

I won this in a Goodreads giveaway a while back, I'm a little embarrassed to say I'm just getting to it. This is the first book in the series that I've read.

Let's start by saying I really think I would have enjoyed this book much more if I had read the first one in the series, as it is I'd call it a solid 3-3.5 star book. The characters were good though the main character (Kade Sims) could be a little much at times. The flow of the book worked very well for me. The pacing could best be described

I gave up

Just could not get interested in the book. Since I didn’t read book 1 in the series I felt constantly like I walked into the middle of the movie. Continual references to what already happened got old real fast. Very rarely do I give up on a book but this one made me do just that.
