by James Mullaney
His name was Remo, and the last thing he wanted was the first thing he got.
No Escape Key
The computer world is always evolving, but now it logs on trouble for CURE. Dr. Harold Smith's own meticulously organized neural files are covertly copied, analyzed and downloaded by an amazing new interface system.
Soon all of CURE's deepest secrets are under control of a shadow force. Not only Remo but even the Master of Sinanju have been accessed and installed. Now they are virtual puppets on a hard drive, slicing and dicing for the enemy at the touch of a keystroke.
And in the next step, a supersecret organization begins experimenting with the Destroyer downloads to unleash an unimaginable threat--the Fourth Reich.
Sinanju meets evil reincarnate in
The Fatherland Files trilogy.
Review: I didn't like this novel as much as Mr. Mullaney's last one for one simple reason: more damn Nazis! Other than that, this is a fine book, one which continues to show James Mullaney's strengths and weaknesses. He is very good at dialog and knows the characters. Remo is Remo, Chiun is Chiun, and Smith is the same old gray, serious automaton he's always been. The bad is the way Mullaney handles action sequences. They're a jumble, hard to follow, and unengaging.
Brain Storm is a good book. Great work Jim, two in a row .
