  • Resurrect follows hero Jason Quinn as he, along with Dr. Eva Rayjek, races to foil a madman's plot to topple the Catholic church and plunge the world into war. The plot is teeming with action-adventure goodness: an intriguing historical mystery, a tough, resourceful hero, a dangerous villain, and a globe-hopping adventure filled with chases, escapes, and action to spare. 

    Kane Gilmour is the co-author of Callsign: Deep Blue and the forthcoming Ragnarok (with Jeremy Robinson), and has been editing Chess Team books for a long time, and you can clearly see parallels in his solo work. The action is non-stop, and he even includes the Metal Storm weapons that are a favorite in the Chess Team books! The Clive Cussler influence is also evident (which I consider a very good thing.) The plot structure is much like that of a Dirk Pitt adventure, and Jason Quinn is reminiscent of Pitt, not only in his toughness and resilience, but in some of the little details as well.

    If you like contemporary action-adventure, Resurrect fits nicely into that niche. Give it a try!
