A decent adventure/thriller, but perhaps too many plotlines. The basic plot line involves the elderly Fay's memories of an alien sighting in Roswell, where she was given an artifact. Fast forward to today, she is saved from an attack by Tyler Locke and Grant Westfield. Fay is the grandmother of Tyler's college girlfriend and off they go on an adventure. Mix in some sociopathic Russians intent on ruining the U.S. using a secret superbomb, a tough female FBI agent who is not great at following orders, unmanned land vehicles, a manned rocketship, gunfire, and there's your novel.

What another great read written by Boyd Morrison in his series of books regarding Tyler Locke! This is the third book in said series, and after reading the first two, there was no way I was not reading this one!

*possible minor spoilers*

Tyler Locke, a former Army combat engineer, and his best friend Grant Westfield, former Army Ranger and current electronic and bomb expert, both work for Gordion, a company Locke started, that helps companies world-wide with extreme testing of products from innovative vehicles to electronics and beyond. Both happen to be in Australia when they decide to meet Fay for an appointment at her request. Walking into a shoot-out at her place, the story unfolds leaving them chasing a former Russian spy Vladmir Colchez, who has stolen a U.S.-Australian test weapon that is able to cause an EMP that can take out the U.S. The required unknown element called xenobium is the best trigger for the device, called Killswitch. With Fay's piece of the wreckage from her younger days in Roswell, N.M., they travel from Australia to Easter Island to South America in an attempt to stop Colchev from obtaining the extraterrestial xenobium that has been hidden.

Once again, Morrison has kept my attention with the action involved in this story. With a bit of slapstick comedy relief, and even if the eventual climax is a bit predictable (good guys always win in the end) I found the read very interesting and relaxing. I look forward to any other books in this series Morrison may write, and plan to check out some of his other novels as well. Definitely a five star book! ( )

Like a bad sci-fi flick, this was slow to get started, and then became all cheesy dialogue and action scenes. ( )

A very enjoyable read, but not what I was expecting. Despite the connection to the US in 1947 very little of this book actually took place in the US. A well thought out story that linked a number of events and took you to many different places across the world. As well as a good storyline there was also a good group of characters I want to read more about. ( )
