really liked it

This review is based on a free copy of the book received from the author through the Goodreads Advance Reader process.

I originally thought this story was about the Calypso Detective but the real name better describes this book.

Will foster is our protagonist and he is not having a great day. A fact that repeats the last 154 days he has been held incognito against his will based on an assertion that he carries a disease that would be fatal to anyone he comes in contact with. The only problem is that that is a big fat lie.

Focusing over the past few weeks Will, referred to as patient 65 by his captures, has determined an escape plan which he executes perfectly and escapes. Now he must find an old friend who may be able to help him figure out what is going on.

In fact the pharmaceutical fir that imprisoned him has determined that his DNA contains a gene of super resistance that could change the world of medicine overnight. They have been working frantically while Will was imprisoned to isolate and hopefully reproduce this gene, with no success to date.

Now that he has escaped they want their golden goose back and hire an outside firm to track him down and retrieve him. While they think they have found him when they go to retrieve him they run into another group with the same idea. That’s great ! all Will needs is two groups of experts trying to capture him.

Who is the real antagonist ?

Who has sent the second group after him ?

This is a thrilling read while at the same time positing questions about the person versus their potential benefit to society. In other words, do they lose so we all win ?

A great read
