I really enjoyed this tale with a new action hero Travis Chase who is a mix of John McClane meeting Harry Bosch. Chase is someone who did something wrong and ended up spending twelve years in prison. When he gets out he is offered a position in his brother's computer company but instead decides to go someplace where nobody knows him so he can be alone and find himself. He ends up in Alaska hiking through sections of Alaskan wilderness. While on one of these hikes a 747 jet crashes close to him. Travis goes to investigate.

He finds everyone aboard dead but notices that among them is the first lady, who has scrawled a note. The note tells him to kill the people that did this as a matter of natural security and to call a phone number and let "Tangent" know what happened.

The bad guys that did this have apparently taken a father and daughter prisoner and are torturing the daughter in front of the father to get him to tell them something. His willpower is slowly fading and Travis decides to take aciton to start killing the bad guys and try to rescue the two people. This leads to battles with numerous bad guys like a Die Hard movie.

We find out that everything is related to an underground desert base controlled by Tangent, a covert government group. In that base an experiment with ion colliders has created a "breach" in maybe the fabric of time and space. Through the breach come different "entities" which are objects with different types of powers. The most powerful object is the object known as Whisper. I kind of likened the objects to the various mutants of the X-Men and The Whisper as being like Magneto.

The book moves as breakneck speed and little by little we learn what Travis had done to land him in prison We also learn that Whisper seems to know all that will happen regardless of whether the predictable or unpredictable is done. Everything that happens seems to center around Travis and it is up to him to defeat the bad guys and Whisper or the world could face dire consequences. Virtually impossible to put this book down! Highly recommended.
