“You take people, you put them on a journey, you give them peril, you find out who they really are.”
― Joss Whedon

A deadly experiment has been done in Berlin, 1945 that has the power to shake off humanity.

Fast forwarding to the present, a drug mafia El Fantasma is decided to make Columbia a war place. DEA agents are into him but will they be able to put him behind the bars?

INTERPOL agent Sabina Wytchoff’s story is nothing less than gripping.

The endless search for the major villain of the story

Reading ‘The Immortality Trigger’ cemented in my mind why Douglas Misquita is my favourite Indian thriller author. Right from the get-go, the book pulled me in. It was very hard to put the book down while at work, and made me want to pull an all-nighter to finish it off (common sense however reminded me that I’m not that young anymore). Pick up this book on a weekend, sit down in your favourite corner (or lying down on your bed, during your commute, or anywhere you can) and get ready for an adve ...more

With a start in Berlin, 1945, “The Immortality Trigger” launches into the present day, hurtling between Europe, South America, and Africa with a gripping pace.The author, Douglas Misquita, is moved to write large-scale thrillers, and with the second book in this series, surely achieves that goal. Not only is this book vast and well-written, the story it tells picks angles with many appeals.

“The Immortality Trigger” clips along as expected, being at heart an action-thriller and were it not for th

First of all thanks to Goodread as got this book in a giveaway and also to author. It's first time reading a German translated to English book. It's really a very good book. The story starts from the period 1945 WW2. where a person called Edmund sthal creates a drug which makes him immortal. At that point of time he was in the making of that drug which he succeeds in later period of time. He is the main antagonist in this book. Total book is to find this person. There are many protogonist but th ...more

A powerhouse medical thriller with all the right ingredients: a secret order, illicit wonder drugs and a relentless hero that never gives up. Highly recommended.

As he did in his spectacular thriller about the global migrant crisis, Diablo, Misquita’s writing doesn’t so much flow as it growls. Each action sequence is felt fully, and with a storyteller of Misquita’s caliber, you just may need Dramamine before the first chapter is done.

A story told across 2 eras ... half a century apart.

A story told across geographies - taking the reader on a tour of infamous places across the globe. And keeping the pace just right for you to keep catching up ...

A story involving a drug mafia, DEA agents , INTERPOL agents and scores of many interesting characters including Yours Truly :)

The author was kind enough to name a character of this novel after me. AND Thankfully, the character was not killed gruesomely within a few pages of his appe

The Immortality Trigger begins in the World War 2 era, slightly slow, with very cliched events dripping with jargon. However, once the story reaches the present day, it picks up the pace and you start liking the jargon! It doesn't take more than a few pages to notice Douglas Misquita's skilful use of imagery, which seems to become better with every book he writes. His description makes you feel every bit of action. The story plays around the history entwining action with a hint of science fictio ...more

Personally, I like the way I interleaved flashbacks , and brought everything neatly together for a finale.
If you enjoy fast adventure with a smack of history and fringe science, this one's for you
