Sam Dryden retired special forcesives a uiet Both Hands Tied life in a small town on the coast of Southern California While out on a run in the middle of the night a young girl runs into him on the seaside boardwalk Barefoot and terrified she’s running from a group of heavily armed men with one clear goal to kill the fleeing child After Dryden helps her evade her pursuers heearns that the eleven year old for as ong as she can remember ha.
Soldier and some ex deep black if I tell you I have to kill you stuff who ost his wife and daughter in an accident and since then was almost a Beth Sholom Synagogue living dead person One night in an insomniac feat he went on a midnight run on boardwalk beside the beach and suddenly got himself collided with a twelve year oldittle girl who was running for her Calvinists Incorporated life Some bad people were after her and wanted to kill her They kept herocked inside a facility She didn t know why her memory was Building Ideas lost She couldn t remember any thing beside her name Rachel In that instant for the first time in so many years Sam got someone to care for to help Of course he s going to help her And so began a breathless edge of seat thrill a minute nonstop chase novel that would keep the reader glued to the words and the pages would almost go flyby themselves But that s only half the story I know what many readers should be thinking right now even while I was enjoying it greatly I admit I was thinking the same thing sure it is suspenseful but still its nothing new A dark broodingone hero who just happened to be in the right place at the right time to save an innocent kid from some despicable psycho killers Its predictable it happened many times before in various novels and movies Yeah not so much One thing Patrick Lee s novels are NOT that is being predictable He has an amazing knack for starting a novel with a seemingly ordinary plot and then completely turn it s head on itself to make it anything but ordinary or normal This one is no exception For about the first half of the book the story is essentially one chase seuence after another where the bad guys kept tracking the duo with ultra modern satellite techs and Dryden kept invading them with increasingly ingenious ways Run run run While on the run both of them tried to delve deeper into the forgotten realms of Rachel s memories to make a sense of everything and this is where the plot took some wild turns to set itself apart from other conventional chase thriller to become something truly uniue and extraordinary And you do have to go Holy shit in some revelations which in Betting on Ideas less capable hands could have easily been Holy shit its awful but from Lee it s perfectly became Holy shit its awesome All that awesomeness not onlyies with great storytelling but also and much importantly with some great characterizations to make the main characters seem real with flesh blood and thoughts and happiness and sadness and everything that make them human where Patrick Lee excelled in spectacular style as well Because even though the book started as an action thriller make no mistake this is a 100% character driven thoughtful thriller where the main action is going in one s head in ways than one The Cahokia linchpin of the whole story is the relationship between Sam and Rachel Both of these characters were painted with so much care and perfect detailing that you can almost touch the sorrow and pain behind Sam s hard exterior for theoss of his family and the Casuistry and Modern Ethics love and fatherly affection he felt for Rachel And in case of Rachel the hardship and constant fear that went through her for herife for her forgotten memories and for Chicago Neighborhoods and Suburbs losing the only kindoving caring feeling from Sam that made her warm instead of the ever present cold really makes the reader s heart ache for this Back to the Breast little kid The relation and the emotions of both of these two characters were so well drawn and realistic that you completely believe the decisions they madeater on which were key to the storyline In case of bad guys its not as black and white as one would think Even so that after a certain time the reader would totally not sure who was the actual good guy here and who s bad That s another win for Lee because he made the whole plot took place so completely in morally gray area that reader has to pause and think about the implications about the ethics and what s right wrong and the basic human rights that should not under any circumstances be violated The science stuff and all the military experiments are truly scary and not as science fictiony as one would think The nonfiction book The Men Who Stare at Goats came to my mind while reading for example After 911 we are Composing the Soul living in a new unfamiliar dark world where the human moral values and what should or should not be done regularly get bulldozed by what needs to be done by any means necessary I for one won t be much surprised if some of these stuffs really do come to fruition in the near future or even already has become some form of reality in some dark corner.
